At first, the U.S market was disappointed by the fact that the subcompact 2019 Mazda 2 would no longer be produced. To make up for this model, the manufacturer embarked on the 2019 Mazda CX-3 that would be built on a similar platform as was the Mazda 2. This model was primarily designed to catch the attention of the younger buyers that lead very active lifestyles. The manufacturer remains positive that this model will make the best sales yet because it will offer a very impressive performance that will complement its exterior and interior designs.
The exterior of this model is built using the Kodo design that is very impressive. The latest edition of Mazda CX 3 is larger than was the Mazda 2, but is smaller than the CX-5. The model can be described as bold, sporty, fashionable and elegant. It has crisp body creases as well as short overhangs and intricate lines that make the model outstanding. A sloped roofline makes the model appear more aerodynamic. The boldness of the model is enhanced by the upright grille at the frontage that is complemented by the lower LED running lights and the remodeled headlights. There is also the chrome surround that is conspicuous at the bottom end of the grille and it cuts through the headlights into the LED running lights. Its sportiness is brought forth by the stylish front end that is protruding and is enhanced by a lower chin spoiler. These elements are well complemented by the blacked out D-pillar. At the back, the model has narrow and horizontal taillights, dual exhaust pipes that are wider and lower reflectors that are very stylish. 18 inch alloy wheels are the agents of movement in this model.
Inside the new 2019 Mazda CX-3, there is plenty of style and comfort. The seats comfortably accommodate 4 adults during a road trip and there is a considerable room for the storage of cargo. The cabin space is upholstered in leather that is two tone and is accentuated by the red accents. Neither power nor lumbar seats are mounted but the user comfort is well taken care of. The instrument panel is quite attractive and is not too busy. This is attributed to the presence of a 7 inch display that houses a majority of the controls. HVAC vents are available for improved air circulation. The safety of the users is assured through the installation of high quality safety gear. The infotainment system is also updated to meet the needs of the modern young person.
