Mazda South­ern Africa has up­dated its suc­cess­ful CX-3 com­pact SUV with some in­te­rior and ex­te­rior en­hance­ments. De­sign im­prove­ments in­clude the front fog lamp bezel colour changed back to black, up-styled 18-inch al­loy wheels and the Mazda grill re­fined to con­sist of fewer, more pro­nounced lines.

Rep­re­sent­ing the next level of the Mazda premium colour pal­ette, Soul Red Crys­tal is now avail­able across the range and LED rear com­bi­na­tion lamps are now avail­able for the In­di­vid­ual and In­di­vid­ual Plus de­riv­a­tives. In­side, a front cen­tre con­sole arm­rest and an elec­tric park­ing brake (EPB) are in­tro­duced from the Ac­tive de­riv­a­tive, while a rear cen­tre seat arm­rest with cup hold­ers and au­to­matic dim­ming rear view mir­ror are avail­able from the Dy­namic de­riv­a­tives up­wards. The In­di­vid­ual and In­di­vid­ual Plus mod­els now come stan­dard with full leather seat uphol­stery.

The model line-up re­mains un­changed with six de­riv­a­tives that fea­ture the Mazda two-litre Sky­ac­tive petrol en­gine (115 kw and 206 Nm) mated with ei­ther a six-speed man­ual or au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. No diesel de­riv­a­tive is avail­able. Prices for the range now start at R292,700 for the CX-3 2,0-litre Ac­tive with a man­ual gear­box, and R313,000 for the auto ver­sion, while the Dy­namic ver­sions are avail­able for R322,300 and R334,300 re­spec­tively, the In­di­vid­ual model is avail­able for R384,600 and the flag­ship In­di­vid­ual Plus for R399,200. This in­cludes a three-year fac­tory war­ranty, a three­year road­side as­sis­tance, and a five-year cor­ro­sion war­ranty, backed up by a three-year un­lim­ited kilo­me­tre ser­vice plan.
