After erasing its first two years on the market, the Mazda subcompact crossover will receive its first round of major upgrades. The 2018 Mazda CX-3 is deployed on dealers nationwide with new features and an improved chassis, as well as a small price increase.
In addition to a slight increase in price, Mazda did a standard low-speed automatic braking on the CX-3 range. He also introduced the company’s G-Vectoring Control system, which reduces engine torque imperceptibly when the CX-3 enters a corner to improve cornering stability. This new system is accompanied by a twisted suspension. To reduce cab noise, Mazda added a thicker window glass, additional sound-absorbing materials and revised door seals. The mid-level touring model is now standard with automatic headlights, windscreen wipers and automatic climate control. The Grand Touring model, specializing in superior specs, boasts an enhanced head-up display. The i-Activsense security package of the Grand Touring from 2018 has been renamed the Premium package; it maintains active safety functions, high-speed automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic dipped headlights, but features a power adjustable driver’s seat a lumbar support and memory settings, a heated steering wheel and traffic – sign recognition.

Not much. The smallest crossing of Mazda went through its second model year with two changes. Intermediate-level touring models have been manufactured as standard with the same 18-inch wheels as the Grand Touring top-spec. More notable is that the i-Activsense model of the Grand Touring, Mazda’s intelligent name for active safety technology.
The CX-3 continues to rely on a built-in four-speed four-speed automatic transmission with 2.0-liter to 146 hp. The front wheel remains the default configuration; however, all-wheel drive can be added for $ 1,250. The 2018 Mazda CX-3 is on sale in September. We recommend that you pick it up from your local dealer, but you probably will not be able to spot it on the same CX-3 2018. The new CX-3 starts at $ 21,050.
