Mazda updates CX-3 range

New tech and GT Sport for Mazda CX-3 range (The Car Expert)

Mazda has announced an updated CX-3 range and added a new GT Sport specification to the thirteen-model line-up, which arrives in UK showrooms this summer.

The CX-3’s safety system and diesel engine have been upgraded, and G-Vectoring Control (GVC) introduced. GVC first appeared earlier this year on the Mazda3 and is standard across the CX-3 range. It optimises weight distribution on the wheels when cornering, which Mazda claims offers more precise handling whilst improving comfort.

All CX-3 models from SE-L Nav trim upwards, feature Advanced Smart City Brake Support which has been upgraded to include pedestrian detection, using a forward facing camera to detect obstacles.

A new steering wheel is standard across the range, as is extra sound insulation and heated electrically folding wing mirrors. Top-of-the-range Sport Nav models offer a heated steering wheel and colour head-up display.

The CX-3 range is available with a choice of eight petrol and five diesel models. The revised Mazda CX-3 range starts from £18,495 and arrives in the UK this summer.

GT Sport

Alongside the updated CX-3 range, Mazda has introduced a new flagship special edition: the GT Sport. With a limited production run of 500, the GT Sport features the same equipment as the CX-3 Sport Nav models, but has a sportier look with a black rear roof spoiler and 19-inch silver alloy wheels. The GT Sport’s 120hp petrol engine can be paired with either manual or automatic transmission, the former costing from £22,895 and the latter from £24,095.
