As we know, this model is already very popular around the world, and the newly model is expected to be even more popular than the previous one. Do you know how regular Mazda 3 looks? Now, just imagine that vehicle, just a bit large and jacked up.
2018 Mazda CX-3
The new CX-3 looks pretty much like that. There is a lot of speculations and assumption about this model, and it is interesting that so many people think that this is going to be the best model in popular subcompact crossover segment. Our assumption is the same, and we think that this model will be the leader. From the outside, this model will be very modernistic, and the younger population will simply adore its appearance.
When we compare this model with the standard Mazda 3, we can definitely notice higher dose of aggressiveness here. The front side of this model is especially attractive, and here we can see the same front grille as in the every newest model from Mazda. However, not only the grille is good looking, but also very large and black-colored front bumper. This bumper will be equipped with the large and nicely designed air intakes, as well as with the LED powered fog lights.
The headlights of this model will have the same shape as the headlights of the regular Mazda 3. However, the LED system on this model will be updated and it will be stronger. The imminent 2018 Mazda CX-3 will most likely ride on 18-inch aluminum wheels. The rear side is also good looking and the taillights are slightly updated. The bumper at the back will remain the same as before.
The interior design of the next 2018 Mazda CX-3 will provide a high dose of comfort and luxury. The Japanese automaker did a great job inside, and we can expect some designed themes borrowed from well-known MX-5 Miata model. The comfort inside will be on the high level and all seats will be wrapped in the high-quality leather. The cabin will be able of accommodating up to five passengers and there will be a lot of space for head and for legs.
The dashboard is very simply organized and in the middle, we can see a large display with the updated infotainment system. Some of the others interior features will include cruise control, auxiliary audio jack, a rearview camera, height-adjustable front seats, a rear roof spoiler, dual-zone automatic climate control, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, etc.
