Mazda chose the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show (November 21-30) to introduce their all-new compact crossover, called Mazda CX-3. You would expect this car to be a jacked-up version of Mazda3, but it appears to be based on the new Mazda2, both size-wise and in terms of design.
The Japanese car maker has announced literally no details about Mazda CX-3 whatsoever, but they have released the single image you see above, and in it you can notice the KODO-heavy design in the buffed-up fenders, the form of the headlights, and the unique front grille.
As with every new Mazda, the CX-3 comes with a promise of lots of SKYACTIV technologies, which is not really surprising, as it will almost certainly share all its underpinnings with the new Mazda2.
Mazda CX-3 will complement the company’s SUV range including the CX-5 and three-row CX-9 models, and will make its motor show debut next to the 2016 MX-5 sports car which will be revealed in American Spec at the show with the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine.
