The Mazda CX-3 took the subcompact crossover world by storm in 2016, and it remained the same in its sophomore year. In 2018, we expect this small people mover to remain essentially unchanged when again.
2018 Mazda CX-3 Design
Boasting the current version of the Mazda Kodo style language, there is no reason for Mazda to make any visual modifications to the crossover. So, search for it to be aesthetically identical to the existing model inside and out.
We likewise anticipate its basic features staying the same in the new year too. If this shows real, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 will come basic with 16-inch wheels, automatic headlights, a rear spoiler, keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, a rearview electronic camera, and a six-speaker audio system with a 7-inch touchscreen.
Buyers looking for a more high end model will have the option to buy the Touring or Grand Touring trims. For more advanced tech and safety features, purchasers can add the i-Activsense Package to the range-topping Grand Touring trim.
2018 Mazda CX-3 Engine
Another location we anticipate to stay the very same is its powertrain, as we anticipate the 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 146 horse power and 146 pound-feet of torque to stay. This engine will pair with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive as standard, however all-wheel drive will be a choice.
2018 Mazda CX-3 Safety
The IIHS rates the current CX-3 as a Top Safety Pick Plus, thanks to its outstanding crash-test scores, superior-rated front-crash avoidance system, and acceptable-rated headlights. Remember that the latter 2 rankings are with the Grand Touring trim and the optional i-Activsense plan. These scores should bring into the brand-new year unchanged.
2018 Mazda CX-3 Release Date and Price
The 2018 Mazda CX-3 ought to begin production in June, and we expect it to land in display rooms in July. Without any modifications in the works, we anticipate absolutely nothing more than extremely mild changes to rates relative to the current model, which ranges from $20,900 to $27,180 (location costs included). Mazda typically offers attractive lease deals on the CX-3 and recently added a small factory rebate.
The crucial rivals for the 2018 CX-3 will include the Honda HR-V, FIAT 500X, and the Jeep Renegade.
