Kodo Design

The CX-3 is a study in striking yet well-balanced design proportions. From rich body contours to exceptionally short overhangs and blacked-out D-pillars, everything about the CX-3’s overall form makes it appear agile yet firmly planted to the ground. It’s the essence of our KODO: “Soul of Motion” design expression: simple lines that express energy and movement, even at a standstill.

When Driving Matters, performance is never compromised for fuel efficiency. So we came up with a way to enhance both. SKYACTIV®TECHNOLOGY is a unique engineering approach that gives you a better driving experience.

 

Safety
Better Visibility

To make your Mazda more visible to drivers ahead of you, we updated the door mirrors to move part of the integrated turn signals to the front. Meanwhile, reducing the width of the mirrors slightly makes it easier to navigate narrow roads and tight spots. Small changes that can make a big difference in driving.

MORE SPACE INSIDE SO YOU CAN DO MORE OUTSIDE

The CX-3 is designed for versatility. Starting with 60/40 split fold-down seatbacks that transform your 5-seat passenger vehicle into a roomy load carrier with up to 44.5 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s enough room for a dozen dachshunds, 48 soccer ball dog toys, 6 bags of dog food, a hundred Frisbees and a million adventures.
