The 2017 Mazda CX-3 is designed with the Kodo “Soul of Motion” aesthetic language. The Kodo inspired crossover SUV features well-balanced proportions that are strikingly attractive, richly contoured doors with unique shapes that add to the sleek look and aerodynamic feel of the Mazda CX-3, and a subtle and strong form that makes you feel secure inside the Zen-like and uncluttered cabin.

Outside, the Mazda CX-3 has plenty of features to add aesthetic and functional touches. The power moonroof slides open to let in natural light and fresh air, while the body-colored spoiler reduces turbulence for a more controlled drive. LED headlights, fog lights, and tail lamps combine with adaptive front lighting and high beam control system for a bright and clear light with minimum energy use.
