    Dashboard

    Since the introduction of Mazda Skyactiv, Mazdas has been well known for their premium interior in their cars, even the small entry-level Mazda 2. The CX-3's dashboard is similar to that to the Mazda 2, covered in soft-touch leather relieved by grey Alcantara leather. The premium interior is further enhanced by the rounded air-cond vents and the smooth quality plastics used.

    Instrument Cluster

    The instrument cluster is dominated by the backlit analogue rev metre in the centre. Mazda has boasted that they have specifically rearranged all important alerts as ergonomically as possible for the CX-3.

    Storage Compartment

    In the facelift, the CX-3 boasts a rather large centre console chamber for a Mazda. Though that seems to make up for all the space in the car as the rest of the cubby spaces are small and only fits small items. As with all Mazdas, the CX-3 is not big on space. With the front seats pushed all the way back, the CX-3's rear passengers get only a scant 12 cm worth of space to fit into.

    Boot 

    Like the legroom, the boot space is not big either. The boot is also too high for easy loading access.

  • Driving Performance

    Engine Performance

    Being heavily perfected by Mazda's Skyactiv drive influence, the CX-3 expectedly continues the brilliant driving performance that has been well-known in all Mazda cars in the Skyactive generation. The engine is quick to respond and has the ability to cajole you to have more fun on a smooth highway, but is still smooth and seamless when it comes to heavy congestions.

    Transmission Performance

    The 6-speed conventional automatic is a unit that provides smooth and seamless gearshifts and doesn't take away the fuel economy of the car.

    Steering and Handling

    Mazdas are well known to have the best handling in its class. With the added help of GVC, the CX-3's steering and handling are weighted just right to allow you a corner happy drive and a steady cruise.

  • Ride Comfort

    Sound Proofing

    The current facelift has seen an improvement in soundproofing. Mazda has sealed the car well so that a rigorous drive does not allow wind to seep through into the cabin though it is still not the quietest in its class.

    Passenger Comfort 

    In its latest iteration, Mazda has added their famed GVC system to the CX-3. GVC not only helps the car handle better but give passengers a more comfortable ride by reducing the body roll movements in the cabin.
