Design Changes

The biggest defining factor between the two model years of the CX-3 is the design changes that have taken place from model year to model year. For 2019, the CX-3 has continued to be refined with the application of the Mazda KODO design philosophy. This approach streamlines and simplifies the interior and exterior of the model to create beautiful balance and minimalism that produces ultra-sophisticated vehicles. A new taillight design, a redesigned center console and armrest, upgraded front seating, new materials in the interior, and a new color for the exterior, among other updates, make this CX-3 feel like a completely different crossover.

Refinements to Performance

This new CX-3 features updates to the suspension and powertrains. Increasing the comfort of the drive and the responsiveness of the CX-3, these changes are ushering in a new era of motion for the CX-3 model. This new model year of the CX-3 comes with a standard SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter, direct-injection gasoline engine. This powerhouse has been re-tuned to increase torque, improve fuel economy, and reduce internal friction. The result is a quick-reacting and powerful engine that can produce 148 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.

Further enhancing this newly refined engine is the addition of Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control (GVC) technology. This system uses engine timing to control chassis dynamics. This means smoother and more responsive steering from the CX-3. On top of these updates, the new 2019 Mazda CX-3 gets new 18-inch tires that are designed to better absorb shocks from road surfaces and reduce braking distances.

Quieter Cabin

The new 2019 Mazda CX-3 increases comfort while driving by adding new design elements to the cabin that decrease sound and allow for a quieter, more comfortable driving experience. This model adds thicker door panels, rear-door glass, and headliner. These are paired with upgraded door seams to further increase the comfort and sound quality in the cabin.
