The compact CX-3 crossover will see the introduction of G-Vectoring as well as a new Individual Plus model added to the range.
Mazda’s popular crossover, the CX-3 is set to acquire a few neat upgrades come 2017. The major update will be the introduction of G-Vectoring across the lineup. G-Vectoring was first introduced on the updated Mazda3 we tested earlier this year. G-Vectoring uses the engine’s torque to momentarily shift weight to work in the vehicle’s favour in order to improve the handling. It also reduces driver fatigue, with fewer adjustments having to be made to the steering in order to keep it straight.
The new model being introduced in 2017 will sit right at the top of the range. The Individual Plus Auto offers some neat safety additions as well as some different visual cues to help it stand out. Safety introductions include adaptive headlights, lane departure warning, Smart City Brake Support (visual and audible warnings are issued if the risk of a collision is detected), driver attention alert and blind-spot monitoring. Silver strips have been added to the door sides as a visual upgrade from the rest of the range.
