The facelifted, 2018 Mazda CX-3 has been launched in Malaysia following its preview, in sole litre SkyActiv-G petrol guise. This unit outputs 151 hp at 6,000 rpm and 204 Nm of torque at 2,800 rpm, which drives the ...
In short, I wanted a relatively small, compact but packs a punch SUV. I got what I wanted. It's stylish, very cool looking and can be driven quite aggresively.
+ Very fast for its size, the 2L engine will really go.
+ More performance can be squeezed out if you use RON100, due to its high compression ratio, it benefits from it
+ Great sporty handling, gives you good confidence when you're driving spiritedly
+ Easy to handle and manage, since it isn't that big
+ Reasonably comfortable, better than other in its class
+ Has a very premium interior, clean and nice, almost like a Merc
+ Pedal shifters, like for reals
+ AT works very well, 90% of the time it knows what you want and gives you the right gear
+ Not plasticy, many soft touch and leather areas
+ Made for sporty feel
+ The GVC stability control is really good, in rain or heavy water areas it holds itself very well
+ Reverse cam is good, better than other segments
+ CBU has pano roof, I don't use it though
+ Good safety features, 6 airbags, the chassis can keep you safe from rollovers as well (trust me, someone got T-boned and rolled 3 times in a CX-3 and whole family only had minor cuts)
+ Comfortable suspension
+ Leather + Alcantara seats
- Small, and back seat rather tight, but I didn't get this car to fetch people around, most of the time it's only me or with my wife
- Hence, not a family car (don't confuse yourself)
- Road and wind noise, that's for my previous gen CBU model, newer models has better sound dampening
- 6-speed AT could be faster in shifting
- Sound system is pretty good, but unfortunately MY model even CBU has no Bose option
- No way to permanently turn off Auto Start/Stop, but you can still do it every time you start and drive, just annoying but you live with it
- More customization options by Bermaz? (Choice of sound system, sensor suites and others)
- Large wheels, 18-inches, prepare to spend to maintain those tires if you drive fast
Would really love an option for a turbocharged 2L engine. The engine bay has tons of space like seriously. Better noise insulation, and perhaps improved AT with 8-speed instead of 6? The engine always feels like it can go further, but limited by the 6-speed AT.
