Distinguished for its remarkable fuel efficiency, award-winning design, high safety ratings, dynamic driving experience, and luxurious features, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 subcompact crossover SUV has undergone a series of thoughtful enhancements, elevating its overall value by incorporating features not commonly found in vehicles twice its price. Mazda’s secrets of reliability make this and many of the recent offerings from Mazda very compelling options in their categories. The Mazda CX-3 has made a name for itself in the Best Compact SUVs in Kenya segment since its inception.
Smart City Brake Support, an automatic emergency braking system applicable at speeds below 19 mph, is now a standard feature across all trim levels, enhancing the CX-3’s safety credentials. This addition aligns CX-3 with other Mazda models, including the 2018 Mazda Axela and 2018 Mazda CX-5, reinforcing safety as a top priority.
Mazda’s exclusive G-Vectoring Control further enhances the driving experience by subtly adjusting engine torque, optimizing weight distribution on the front wheels, and providing a more linear and direct steering feel. This contributes to increased driver confidence and control.
The entry-level CX-3 Sport trim offers a range of standard features such as cloth seats, power windows and mirrors, two USB ports, a backup camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and MAZDA CONNECT with a 7-inch full-color display. The mid-level CX-3 Touring introduces 18-inch wheels, leatherette and Lux Suede upholstery, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry, heated front seats, and heated side mirrors. Additional standard features for the Touring include auto on/off headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and automatic climate control.
For an elevated experience, the Touring Preferred Equipment Package includes a BOSE® Premium audio system, power glass moonroof, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD Radio, and a cargo cover. The CX-3 Grand Touring builds upon this with Parchment or black leather with red accents, adaptive LED headlights, LED fog lights, LED daytime running lights, Mazda Navigation, Active Driving Display, and paddle shifters.
The GT Premium Package further enhances the Grand Touring model with Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Smart Brake Support for highway speeds, Lane-Departure Warning, High Beam Control, and new features like a 6-way power driver’s seat, power driver’s lumbar support, 2-position driver memory seat, heated steering wheel, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
Noteworthy improvements extend beyond the visible, with changes like revised suspension bushings, new front lower control arms, recalibrated dampers, and new engine mounts, all contributing to the CX-3’s class-leading chassis dynamics. Enhanced door seals, thicker rear glass, and sound suppression mats underneath the floor and dashboard contribute to a refined “Mazda Premium” experience.
Mazda’s commitment to continuous improvement is evident in enhanced throttle and transmission responsiveness, aligning with their “Jinba Ittai” driving philosophy, emphasizing unity between the driver and the vehicle.
All CX-3 models in Kenya feature a standard SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine with 146 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque, paired with a SKYACTIV-DRIVE 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with the option for Mazda’s predictive i-ACTIV all-wheel drive across all trim levels, utilizing 27 sensors to predict and adapt to road conditions for optimal performance and stability.
