Wondering how the new Mazda CX-3 would look like when the Japanese carmaker launches the vehicle in late 2014 or early 2015? According to a speculative rendering, the Mazda CX-3 mini sports utility vehicle will have the carmaker’s new family look, which features the five-point grille connected to the headlights through a strip of chrome.
The Mazda CX-3 will be designed and developed using Mazda’s Skyactiv technologies to control the weight of the mini-SUV. The vehicle will be powered by Mazda’s new 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which will also power the Mazda2 and next generation Mazda3. Mazda is also expected to offer an efficient and low-emission 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine for the Mazda CX-3.
The Mazda CX3 also features an ingenious seating layout, with rear seats that can fold flat rear seats with a touch of a button. The Mazda CX-3, based on the Mazda2 city car, is an ideal small sibling to the CX-5 and CX-9 SUVs.
