Mazda CX-3 might be the smallest crossover in the Mazda lineup, but its new redesign is about to make a big splash. Earlier this year during the New York International Auto Show, Mazda unveiled the Mazda CX-3 redesign and it’s a lot edgier and more refined than it was previously.
On the outside, the CX-3 looks more elegant than before with a few subtle differences. A new grille and chrome accents give the crossover a premium feel, while the Piano black accents, cylindrical taillight design and the 18-inch wheels with a multi-faceted spoke design give it an edgy look.
The inside has seen even more drastic changes, including a new design for the center console, wider front seats, available leather seating, and a new rear-seat center armrest with cupholders. Mazda’s also made the cabin quieter with thicker door panels, rear-door glass, and headliner.
Along with these changes, the powertrain and suspension has also seen a bit of a revamp. The SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine has been tweaked slightly to offer better fuel-efficiency and more torque, bumping its numbers to 148 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. Low-profile tires will help reduce braking distances, while the suspension and the power steering has undergone a fine tuning.

Entering into its third model year, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 gets a few updates. This year’s Mazda CX-3 updates include new standard features and an upgraded chassis. You can find the 2018 CX-3 at El Dorado Mazda now.
One of the most significant updates is the addition of Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support on all trims. This feature comes standard on all trims now. Smart City Brake Support works in low speed conditions, such as city driving up to 19 mph. It uses an infrared laser mounted on the front of the car to detect the vehicle in front. If the system detects an imminent collision, it will prepare the brakes. If the driver does not respond in time, the brakes will be applied to attempt to avoid, or at least reduce the severity of, a collision.
To help improve the Mazda CX-3’s quiet ride, the 2018 model will come with key chassis changes. This includes revised suspension bushings, adjusted dampers, new front lower control arms, and new engine mounts. In addition, thicker rear glass and better door seals contribute to a quieter ride overall.
