Mazda CX-3 Spied Testing Just Ahead of LA Debut

Just a few days ahead of its debut, our spy photographers have grabbed some shots of the new Mazda CX-3 out testing. 

The CX-3 will sit in between the CX-5 crossover and the Mazda2 subcompact, the car on which it will be based. The most likely candidate for powering the new small crossover is the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 155 hp.

Although it is still fully camouflaged, we can see that CX-3 shares much of its rear-end styling with the larger CX-5, while the front is more like the new smaller Mazda2.

While we have heard that the CX-3 will debut at the LA Auto Show later this week in production form, some conflicting reports say it will only be a concept version. AutoGuide will be live from the LA Auto Show, so check back for more info later this week.

    The back end looks pretty good. The nose makes it look like a mouse. Weird.

    The CX-5 was huge for Mazda. I hope this does the same. Mazda is a brand more people should be buying.

    Too bad their reliability sucks compared to other Japanese brands.
