More than likely it'll be here in 2015.
Small crossovers have quickly become a hot commodity in the auto industry. It all started, mainly, with the Nissan Juke. Whether you're a fan of it or not, the Juke has proven to be a huge success for Nissan, and competitors quickly took notice. Examples include the Mini Countryman, Buick Encore, and most recently, the Jeep Renegade. Now Mazda wants to join the party with what will likely be called the CX-3. Supposedly, the new crossover is well into development, but Mazda has yet to confirm this.
So far, the automaker has only clarified that it has the capability to produce such a model. We also know the CX-3 will be built on the same platform as the upcoming next-gen Mazda2. Power will come from both SkyActiv gasoline and diesel engines. However, like the new Mazda2, it's still unknown whether or not the CX-3 will even be offered in the US. Our guess is yes simply because of both the Juke and Encore's popularity. If all goes to plan, expect to see the CX-3 revealed sometime in 2015. Mazda CX-3 Rendering Courtesy of Auto Express.
