Cruising in Style: A Closer Look at Mazda’s CX Range

When it comes to vehicles that deliver in style, comfort, and road efficiency, Mazda is one of the most recognised names in the business. After all, it has been in the automotive industry for more than 100 years. 

Mazda is known for manufacturing some of the most efficient vehicles on the road today. Moreover, it is popular for its range of Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs), including the Mazda CX5, Mazda CX3, Mazda CX-9, among others. 

So, if you’re looking to invest in your first vehicle or upgrade your ride, you should check out what Brighton Mazda has to offer, including this range of new Mazda CX models and Mazda used cars:

Mazda CX-3

Sleek, modern, and every bit a classic, CX-3 is one of Mazda’s most successful subcompact SUVs that was first released in 2015. Since then, it has been a favourite among those who want a stylish passenger car with good fuel economy and fast acceleration. 

Mazda has released several upgrades of the classic CX-3, including the 2021 version. But you can still opt for a Mazda CX3 second hand, and you’ll guarantee the same level of performance from this small yet power-packed SUV. 

Some of the CX-3’s most prominent features include:

  • Kodo design
    Mazda has always been known for its ability to combine efficiency with standout design. The Mazda CX-3, in particular, is inspired by the Kodo design, which captures the moment when energy becomes motion. Every line and curve of the CX-3 is designed to impress.
  • Space
    The Mazda CX-3 boasts of a five-seat configuration, making it the perfect car for couples, a small family, or even someone who loves to travel with friends. Seating is available in stylish cloth trim, luxurious leather or the Hybrid Maz-tech interior each providing the utmost comfort while on the road and offering a sleek contrast to the black accents throughout the car’s interior.
  • Efficiency
    The CX-3 is powered by a 2.0L petrol engine at 110kW/195Nm and 6.3L/100km combined fuel consumption. You can choose from the front-wheel or all-wheel drive version, depending on your needs and preferences.
  • Technology
    Unlike most subcompact SUVs, the CX-3 offers driver-assist technology that’s second to none. For starters, it has an active driving display that allows you to see your current speed and other essential navigation information within your line of sight. It also gives you four separate cameras around the car, so you see from all angles when driving.

Additionally, the Mazda CX-3 offers a sleek infotainment system where you can access your favourite apps, listen to music, and just enjoy while driving from a 7-inch colour screen.

Mazda CX-30

It’s hard not to notice the effortless elegance of the Mazda CX-30. It’s not like any other SUV in the market, it was designed to stand out. From its unique exterior that reflects both light and shade to its exceptional interior that has everything you need in a car, the CX-30 is in a class of its own and has just won the prestigious 2021 Wheels Magazine Car of the Year.  The CX-30 is available with these fantastic features:

  • Space
    The CX-30 is essentially a crossover between the classic CX-3 and the newer CX-5, and space is one of its biggest advantages. At 4,395mm long and 1,540mm tall, the CX-30 offers the ideal size for an SUV because it’s easier to manoeuvre, but it still has the space for a comfortable drive. The CX-30 was specifically designed for young families, but it doesn’t sacrifice style and convenience in any way.
  • Options
    Being a crossover, the CX-30 contains the same engine as the Mazda3, which means that you can go for the “Skyactiv-X” engine, the 1.8-litre four-cylinder diesel or the 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol. If you want the most out of this model, you should go with the SkyActive-X M hybrid engine that offers 132kW/224Nm and 6.0L/100km combined fuel consumption.
  • Style
    Like Mazda’s other SUVs, the CX-30 features its breakthrough Kodo design, where the exterior is crafted in a way that reflects light and shade, while the interior is designed to make everything within reach.

Mazda CX-5

If you’re looking for a medium sized SUV that ticks all the right boxes without breaking your budget, the Mazda CX-5 is the perfect choice for you. Here are some of its best features:

  • Space
    The CX-5 seats five people, with 31 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 60 cubic feet with the seats folded down.  Just one of the reasons it’s been one of Australia’s most popular family vehicles since it was first released in 2012.
  • Interior
    Riding in the CX-5 will feel like you’re in a luxury vehicle because of its top-quality finishes. Including the option of Nappa leather upholstery for your seats and real wood trim pieces around the interior of the car.
  • Performance
    With the CX-5, you get to choose between a 2.5L engine with 7.4L/100km combined fuel consumption and a 2.2L diesel engine with a 5.7L/100km combined fuel consumption.  Or you can amp up the performance with a 2.5L Turbo engine putting out 170kw!

Mazda CX-8

The Mazda CX-8 is one of the best mid-size crossovers of its kind today. This seven-seater is similar to the CX-9, but it’s a bit shorter and narrower since it is designed to meet Japanese road regulations. Here are some of its features:

With this SUV, you get a 2.5L petrol engine with 8.1L.100km combined fuel consumption or a 2.2 diesel engine with a 5.9L/100km combined fuel consumption.

The CX-8 boasts of a 4+2 or 5+2 seat configuration, depending on your preferences. It can also accommodate up to 775 litres of cargo room with the second-row seats folded down.

This SUV isn’t only spacious enough for the whole family, but it also has features that ensure comfort while on the road. The CX-8 has a power sunroof, a 360-degree view monitor, heated and ventilated seats, and a hands-free power tailgate for extra convenience.

Mazda CX-9

One of Mazda’s most popular SUVs would be the CX-9, which was manufactured in Japan but sold to other countries because it’s too big for Japanese roads. The smaller CX-8 is sold in Japan instead. Here are some of its features:

  • Space
    The CX-9 has the same 4+2 or 5+2 seat configuration but with a much bigger cargo room volume of 810 litres with the rear seats folded down.
  • Efficiency
    This SUV boasts a powerful 2.5L turbo, 4-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC S-VT petrol turbo engine with an 8.4L/100km combined urban fuel consumption.
  • Technology
    The Mazda CX-9 is power-packed with technology features that include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and wireless phone charging. It also has an active driving display and LCD instrument panel, electric parking brake with auto hold, centre armrest storage with USB, and advanced climate control.

Why wait to get your car?

This range of Mazda SUVs will surely want to make you invest in a new car. But you don’t need to wait to afford a brand-new SUV because you can always get a Mazda CX3 second hand or a Mazda CX5 GT. Getting a pre-owned car is just as worthwhile as investing in a new car as long as you buy from the right Mazda centre. 

Buying a pre-owned car means you can save a huge amount of money while getting the same features you would enjoy from a brand-new car. You just need to consider a few things:

Look at mileage
The higher mileage a car has, the more parts would need replacing or fixing in the long run. Try to find a car below the 60,000km mark to ensure that wear isn’t happening anytime soon. When a car hits that mileage, natural wear and tear begin, and you may need to spend more on new brake pads or even a radiator.

Consider pricing
Although you can save from buying a pre-owned car, it’s still best to invest in something that’s well-priced so you can ensure quality.

Find the right seller
Look at Mazda CX5 car sales to see if a car dealer has good sales records. This will help you ensure that you’re buying from the right Mazda service centre.

Check the car thoroughly
Whether you’re choosing the Mazda CX5 GT or the CX-9, it’s crucial to check the car thoroughly to get a feel of what you’re getting. This will help you decide if a model is right for your needs or if you should look for different models. You can also do a test drive to get a better perspective of how a vehicle performs.

You’ll never be disappointed with a Mazda SUV, that’s for sure. Even if you’re buying pre-loved, Mazda has been known to design vehicles that last for many years, even with constant use. You can also guarantee quality with all its parts and finishes so you’ll surely enjoy your car for a long time.
