BB Group Mazda Polokwane recently introduced the advanced Mazda CX-3, the first compact SUV that combines the stylish design of a hatchback with the versatility of an SUV to the local market.
Built with city driving in mind yet capable of taking on country roads, the Mazda CX-3 is equipped with the latest SKYACTIV Technology giving it natural agility coupled with outstanding fuel efficiency.
The Mazda CX-3 is the creation of ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design. KODO is inspired by the instant when energy bursts into motion. It’s the powerful grace of an animal pouncing, or a human leaping into action. Balancing athletic presence, streamlined simplicity and elegant detail, the Mazda CX-3 brings rare imagination to the compact SUV.
The elegant lines and details of the exterior design continues in the cockpit which is not only stylish but also spacious with loads of features to ensure a comfortable and safe journey. Staying connected in the new Mazda CX-3 is part of the experience when using the MZD Connect system with commander. The MZD Connect system responds to a wider variety of needs by greatly improving the convenience of functions that require Bluetooth connectivity, such as hands-free phone operation, reception of short text messages, and internet radio. Just as thoughtful is the multi-function commander, which allows complete control on the move with minimum distraction. MZD Connect is standard from Dynamic models.
Satellite navigation incorporates visual and voice guidance to get you there promptly and is standard on Individual and Individual Plus models.
Mazda is committed to reducing the environmental impact of their vehicles, yet they would never want to compromise the driving enjoyment that’s core to their DNA. In answering this challenge, they arrived at a breakthrough with SKYACTIV Technology. In every way imaginable, the new Mazda CX-3 has been created to unlock efficiency and unleash performance potential. i-Stop cleverly saves fuel by turning off the engine when you come to a stop, positioning it perfectly for a quick restart. These features are standard on the Automatic Active 2,0 litre model.
A new generation internal combustion engine generates more performance from less fuel. Precise multi-hole direct injection minimises fuel use. A unique piston design improves combustion to boost power and lower emissions. Reduced friction liberates extra power, while a 4-2-1 exhaust layout lifts efficiency. The 2,0 litre four-cylinder engine delivers a sporty 115 kW of power and 206 Nm of torque, using as little as 6,6 litres of fuel every 100 km on a combined cycle.
The 6-speed automatic transmission combines the best aspects of conventional automatic, continuously variable and dual clutch transmissions. It connects directly with the engine across a far wider range than other automatics for increased fuel economy and more direct power delivery.
Aside from agile responses helping you stay clear of trouble, the Mazda CX-3 comes with a suite of safety features that are primed for anything. Its light weight delivers sporty performance, yet its body is immensely strong. Multiple load paths divert crash energy from the occupant cell, helping achieve world-class collision safety.
