The updated Mazda CX-3 will be heading to South Africa in January 2022, bringing with it a number of new features. The level of trims and drivetrain options will remain unchanged. While select markets are doing away with the CX-3, Mazda South Africa confirms that the compact crossover SUV has been a huge success in the South African market and will remain part of its model lineup going forward.
Enhancements included in the Updated Mazda CX-3 consist of a larger 8,0-inch Mazda MZD Connect infotainment system for the higher trim models. For better safety, seatbelt warnings are introduced on the rear seats as well.
The updated Mazda CX-3 will also include wireless charging on the Individual AT and Hikari AT models, which allows smartphones to charge by placing them on the console. A new colour “Platinum Quartz” will also be introduced to the overall CX-3 range.
Where the range is concerned, the Active will continue to be the entry-level model followed by the Dynamic. Both of these will be available with the six-speed manual and automatic transmission. This will be followed by the Individual and Hikari which will only be fitted with the self-shifter.
The naturally aspirated 2,0-litre four-cylinder engine remains unchanged with a power output of 115 kW and 206 N.m of torque.
