Sales for the 2021 Mazda CX-3 start next month in the US.
New model updates typically come with price increases. But one exception to this rule is the 2021 Mazda CX-3. Mazda has announced pricing details for the 2021 CX-3, and it's not a cent more expensive than last year's model, despite boasting a few improvements. Arriving in US dealerships next month, the 2021 Mazda CX-3 will start at $20,640 with FWD, matching the MSRP of the 2020 model.
The AWD version, on the other hand, will set you back at least $22,040. Both prices exclude the $1,100 destination and handling charge. Three premium colors are also available: Soul Red Crystal Metallic, Machine Gray Metallic, and Snowflake White Pearl Mica, costing $595, $495, and $395 respectively.
In the US, the Mazda CX-3 is only offered in Sport trim, which uses a four-cylinder Skyactiv-G 2.0 engine rated at 148 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front or all four wheels through a quick-shifting Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode and Sport mode.
As standard, the 2021 Mazda CX-3 Sport is equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an active driving display, and automatic climate control. Other standard tech includes a seven-inch touchscreen display with Mazda Connect, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio and a six-speaker audio system, an electronic parking brake, push-button start, remote keyless entry, power windows, and cloth seats.
For 2021, Mazda's advanced smart city brake support included with the standard i-Activesense safety package has been enhanced with night pedestrian detection. Radar cruise control, smart brake support with collision warning, lane departure warning, high beam control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a rear-view camera come as standard.
The automatic on/off function of the standard LED headlights have also been enhanced for the 2021 Mazda CX-3. Rounding off the standard equipment list are 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a roof spoiler, shark fin antenna, a black front grille, and dual stainless-steel exhaust tips.
