The 2016 Mazda CX-3 is Redesigned and Ready at Gorman McCracken
The 2016 Mazda CX-3 is an all-new model so drivers don’t necessarily know what to expect from this subcompact. Like the larger CX-5 and CX-9, the CX-3 is versatile and shares numerous styling elements and features, including the MAZDA CONNECT system and the KODO Soul of Motion design language. Even so, the CX-3 is clearly a different model from its larger counterparts with its enhanced efficiency and sporty handling. Come test drive the all new subcompact CX-3 at our dealership in Longview, TX. We are located near Tyler, TX as well as Shreveport, so next time you’re in the area, drive by!
2016 Mazda CX-3 Exterior Features
Look at a parked Mazda CX-3, and you may notice that it gives the illusion of movement. This is no accident and is actually part of the KODO Soul of Motion design language. The dynamic lines and other styling elements all aim to mimic the exact moment when a predator pounces on its prey. This is why you will notice rich body contours, short overhangs, and the blacked-out D-pillars on the 2016 CX-3. Opt for a CX-3 model with the power sliding glass moonroof and interior sunshade to get some fresh air and bring the outside in while driving around Texas. The CX-3 always has a rear roofline spoiler, variable intermittent wipers, and an intermittent rear wiper and washer. You can also add a roof rack with side rails and crossbars to any trim level. Further customization is possible with a specific roof rack attachment for carrying your surfboard, skis, cargo box, bike, or kayak.
Interior Features of the 2016 Mazda CX-3
When you sit behind the wheel of the 2016 Mazda CX-3, you will feel as if the cockpit was designed with you in mind as Mazda put everything you need within easy reach. Designers also made an effort to increase your visibility in a way you won’t get on competitors. After all, every CX-3 has cloth-trimmed sport seats and at least 6-way adjustment for the driver. The comfort continues in the rear seats, which split 60/40, fold down, and feature their own headrests. The various cup holders, pockets, and bottle holders add to the convenience, as do cruise control and the day/night rearview mirror. The air conditioning goes to the next level with a standard pollen filter, and there are even rear heater ducts so everyone can get a comfortable temperature. On higher trims, the sport seats get leather trim and Lux Suede inserts with complementing leather on the parking brake handle, steering wheel, and shift knob, and the front seats become heated.
2016 Mazda CX-3 Performance
Every CX-3 has the same SKYACTIV-G 2-liter 4-cylinder engine complete with variable valve timing, advanced direct injection, 146 horsepower, and 146 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard on the Mazda CX-3, but you can easily upgrade to i-ACTIV AWD, a predictive all-wheel-drive system. The system constantly monitors a long list of features, such as braking patterns, throttle input, and exterior temperature to predict when you will need all-wheel drive. This way, the torque distribution is optimized before it becomes necessary, reducing your loss of traction. If you choose to stick with front-wheel drive, the 2016 CX-3 will maintain 29 city/35 highway/31 combined mpg; all-wheel-drive models get 27/32/29 mpg. The SKYACTIV-DRIVE 6-speed automatic transmission gives you the smoothness you expect from an automatic with the direct feel you typically only find on a manual.
