Mazda has announced UK pricing and specification for the updated CX-3, with a new 1.8-litre diesel engine.
On sale from August 31 – priced from £18,995 - the updated CX-3 features a simplified model line-up, new technology and interior improvements.
It is offered in SE Nav+, SE-L Nav+ and Sport Nav+ trim. All cars, with the exception of the entry-level 121ps SE Nav+, feature front LED fog lights and rear privacy glass, while Sport Nav+ cars have 18-inch silver alloy wheels, LED headlights, signature LED rear lights and chrome effect front bumper and side trim garnishes.
A new front grille freshens up the front end, although the biggest revisions are inside. The centre console has been redesigned to improve comfort and ergonomics.
New seats further enhance refinement.
Mazda has also focused on driver engagement, with revised suspension and recalibrated steering.
The 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine, which is available in 121PS and 150PS power outputs, now features innovations that debuted on the Mazda CX-5 to improve real-world economy.
Making its debut in the 2018 Mazda CX-3, Mazda’s small clean diesel engine has increased from 1.5-litres to 1.8-litres and is designed to deliver performance, economy and refinement. It produces 115PS and emits 114g/km in Sport Nav+ trim.
