Mazda to Debut All-New CX-3 Compact Crossover SUV at 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show


– Updated Mazda6 and CX-5 also set to debut –

RICHMOND HILL, ON, Oct. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Mazda Motor Corporation today announced that its all-new compact crossover SUV, named the Mazda CX-3, will make its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show, running from November 21 through November 30, 2014.* The vehicle joins the automaker's growing crossover SUV lineup, which includes the popular CX-5 and three-row CX-9 models.

Mazda CX-3 is the fifth vehicle in Mazda's line-up of new-generation products that feature the full range of SKYACTIV Technology and KODO—Soul of Motion design. In pursuing a design of beauty and sophistication, the essence of KODO—the expression of life within a vehicle—has been evolved to produce a sharper form with an enhanced sense of speed.

In addition, Mazda will use the Los Angeles stage to reveal its updated Mazda6 and CX-5.

The all-new Mazda MX-5 two-seater open-top sports car will also make its North American auto show debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The engine line-up for the all-new MX-5 will be tailored to each market, and feature either a 1.5-liter or 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine, tuned exclusively for the model and mounted longitudinally. North American-specification models will only be fitted with the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine.
