2015 Mazda CX-3 crossover revealed [video]

Mazda has unveiled their all-new entry level CX-3 crossover, which goes against the likes of Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Vauxhall Moka.

Heavily based on the new Mazda2, the CX-3 features curvaceous body work, sweptback headlights, plastic body cladding and a blacked out C-pillar which resembles a rear window.

The interior carries largely over from the new Mazda2 with higher-spec variants offering heads-up display and a Mazda Connect infotainment system.

Unlike the Mazda2 whichs is FWD, the CX-3 will be offered with a standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive.

The CX-3 wheelbase of 2570mm is same as on the new Mazda2, but it is 21.5cm longer and also 5.5cm taller.

The CX-3 will be offered with two 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engines and the new 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel engine. Specific details have not been released yet, but the petrol units are likely producing 118 and 163bhp, while the diesel from the 2 packs 104bhp.

Both engines will be connected to standard SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual transmission or the SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic gearbox.

The CX-3 will go on sale in early spring with prices for the entry level model expected to start at around £15,000.
