STYLED TO STAND APART 

The CX-3 is a study in striking, well-balanced design proportions. From its rich contours to its athletic silhouette. Making everything about the CX-3’s overall form appear agile yet firmly planted to the ground. It’s the essence of KODO design: simple lines that express energy and movement. Even at a standstill.

MORE SPACE INSIDE SO YOU CAN DO MORE OUTSIDE 

The interior of the CX-3 expresses the vehicle’s unique character. Colors and fabrics are combined in unexpected ways to inspire a sense of sporty refinement. On select models, carefully crafted lines of stitching create a feeling that’s solid and rich. Everywhere you look, clean lines and modern design help eliminate distraction, so you can focus on what matters most—driving.

IT KNOWS WHAT’S COMING BEFORE YOU DO

AN INSTANT RESPONSE TO EVERY SITUATION

Even when the weather’s perfect, available i-ACTIV AWD® helps stabilize and improve the CX-3’s overall road grip. While driving down a winding hill or simply making a sharp turn, the technology senses changes in steering effort caused by a puddle or some loose gravel and distributes torque more evenly.

This is made possible by SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, our unique engineering approach that gives you a better driving experience with up to an equally impressive EPA-estimated 34 highway MPG2.
