New SUVs for 2015 — And Beyond

2016 Mazda CX-3
Price: TBA
On Sale: Spring 2015
The all-new CX-3 fits into the Mazda lineup between the 5-occupant CX-5 crossover and the Mazda3 sporty hatchback, although the CX-3 is slightly smaller than the Mazda3. The “KODO – Soul of Motion” design makes the CX-3 instantly recognizable as a Mazda. The small crossover will utilize Mazda’s SKYACTIVE-G 2.0-liter engine, which should provide great fuel efficiency and also make the CX-3 a blast to drive. The CX-3 will feature Mazda’s new-generation AWD system, giving it a leg up on the front-wheel-drive Mazda3 hatchback. Using the same active-torque control introduced in the CX-5, the CX-3 also features a front wheel slip-detection system, which employs sensors to monitor the driver’s intentions as well as constantly-changing driving conditions.
