Berjaya Auto Philippines, the exclusive distributor of Mazda vehicles in the country, has unveiled the latest addition to the Japanese brand’s new-generation vehicle lineup – the all-new Mazda CX-3 Freestyle Crossover Vehicle.
“The new CX-3 is one of the most highly anticipated vehicles we have ever unveiled in the Philippine market,” shares Steven Tan, President and CEO of Berjaya Auto Philippines. He adds, “Its stylish looks, unmatched performance and impeccable build quality make it a vehicle that only Mazda could have created. We are confident this crossover for the new generation will give its future owners an uncompromising and unfettered driving experience worthy of their active and expressive lifestyles.”
The CX-3 is powered by 2-liter SKYACTIV-G Gasoline Direct-injection engine rated at 148ps at 6,000 rpm and mated to a 6-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission. With a torque output of 192Nm coming in fully as low as 2,800 rpm, linear and powerful acceleration is guaranteed further ensuring an enjoyable experience behind the wheel. Similar to other new-generation Mazda vehicles, fuel economy has not been sacrificed in the name of performance. The new CX-3’s i-STOP engine idle-stop system helps keep gasoline consumption in check. For those who refuse to be constrained by the limits of the road, the high-end AWD Activ variant of the new CX-3 features Mazda’s very own i-ACTIV All Wheel Drive system.
Mazda CX-3 units are all made in Japan. They are available in three variants – the FWD Pro which comes in Crystal White Pearl and Dynamic Blue; the FWD Sport with four colors – Crystal White Pearl, Soul Red, Jet Black and the trim-exclusive Titanium Flash; and the top-of-the-line AWD Activ which adds the Ceramic finish to its five-color palette. It also comes with Mazda’s value laden YOJIN3 TOTAL CARE package that comes with Free Periodic Maintenance Service for three years (or 60,000-kilometers, whichever comes first), as well as free 3-year Emergency Roadside Assistance and New Vehicle Limited Warranty coverage for a period of three years or 100,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
