Comfortable Space

Mazda CX-3 InteriorWelcome your five passengers aboard the Mazda CX-3 for a fun ride! Sit in soft, cloth-trimmed sport seats in both the front and back rows. Behind the wheel, adjust the 6-way manual driver’s seat to your ideal comfort level. The automatic climate control with pollen filter gives the interior a fresh respite from the outdoors, especially during allergy season, and provides the perfect temperature for relaxing.

Here are the interior cabin measurements in the Mazda CX-3:

Dimensions Front Seat Rear Seat
Headroom 38.4 inches 37.2 inches
Hip Room 52.3 inches 49 inches
Legroom 41.7 inches 35 inches
Shoulder Room 53.5 inches 50.4 inches

To store items bought at the market or tote along sports gear, like a tennis racket or your gym bag, tuck them into the trunk that holds 17.8 cubic feet. For even more space, the rear seats fold down with a 60/40 split and provide 42.7 cubic feet of cargo space.

Versatile Technology

Mazda CX-3 Interior TechnologyWhen you start examining the 7-inch full-color touch screen display with the Mazda Connect™ Infotainment System, you’ll see how much you can do. It gives you several ways to listen to music, make calls to friends, and stream your apps in the car. Following are some of the devices that allow you to make calls:

  • Bluetooth®
  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto™

Along with these devices, choose the music to accompany your drive or download podcasts through these internet radio services:

  • Aha™
  • Pandora®
  • Stitcher™

Of course, you’ll get an AM/FM audio system to listen to more tunes. It comes with Automatic Level Control and floods your vehicle with sound through six speakers.

To get a handle on any of the systems, use the Multifunction Commander Control, located on the center console, or voice command. The steering-wheel-mounted audio controls help you to change radio stations or mute your stereo while driving.

So Much Safety

Packed into the Mazda CX-3, you’ll get many confidence-building features to help take you safely from Point A to Point B. For a view of each angle and to receive warnings if an obstacle or pedestrian appears in your way, the following systems come to your aid:

  • Rearview Camera
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Forward Collision Warning

Brake support systems lend a helping hand when unexpected events occur:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Advanced Smart City Brake Support

With the latter device, it provides both day and nighttime pedestrian detection, so you’re not alone in the dark.

If you glance at the Active Driving Display, you’ll see how fast you’re going and find out which directional step you need to take next. The information projects directly onto your windshield, so you’ll never need to take your eyes off the road.

Peppy Performance

The Mazda CX-3 gets its pep from the Skyactiv®-G 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that generates 148 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. With this crossover, you’ll get impressive gas mileage to the tune of an EPA-estimated 29 city/34 highway MPG.*

To manage the road, this car uses:

  • Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift and Sport mode
  • Front-wheel drive
  • Available i-Activ AWD®

These systems give you what you need to handle the road and get to your destination, free from hiccups.
