LOS ANGELES, California - In a world premiere, Mazda will unveil its new compact crossover SUV, the Mazda CX-3, at the Los Angeles auto show which will open on November 21 2014.

The Mazda CX-3 is the latest model in Mazda’s line-up of new-generation products featuring the full range of SkyActiv technology and Kodo - Soul of Motion - designs.

“In pursuing a design of beauty and sophistication,” Mazda says, “the essence of Koko, the expression of life within a vehicle, has been evolved to produce a sharper form with an enhanced sense of speed.”


The all-new Mazda MX-5 roadster will also make its North American auto show debut in Los Angeles. The engine line-up will be tailored to each market, with either a 1.5 or two-litre SkyActiv-G petrol engine tuned exclusively for the all-new Mazda MX-5 and mounted longitudinally for its rear-wheel drive.

North American-specification models will only be fitted with the SkyActiv-G 2two-litre petrol engine.
