Mazda Australia has announced significant updates to the CX-3 range. A new seat design has internal structure created to reduce driver and passenger fatigue.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have both been integrated into the Mazda Connect infotainment system. There are new-design key fobs and badging.

Active safety remains a focus point with the range-wide Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) adding night time pedestrian detection, while the automatic head lights are now more sensitive to changing light conditions, further assisting the SCBS function in low light conditions.

The refreshed Mazda CX-3 range will go on-sale in late-January 2021. Dealers are happy to take orders now.

Mazda Australia is also selling a limited-edition, just 70 units, of a 100th Anniversary model based on the high-spec Akari front-wheel drive automatic. It’s finished in Snowflake White Pearl Mica paintwork and has Burgundy leather upholstery. It has 100th anniversary embossed headrests, bespoke badging to the body sides, hub caps, key fobs and interior floor mats.

“The Mazda CX-3 has long enjoyed segment leadership in the Light SUV category,” said Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi.

“Its eye-catching design, ergonomic cabin layout and strong features list has ensured its popularity in the Australian market.

“Now with the latest updates including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, not to mention key safety enhancements and refreshed colour and upholstery options, the CX-3 is sure to continue its sales success into 2021,” he said.
