Mazda releases “class-leading fuel economy” results for CX-3

On June 8, Mazda North American Operations released its official fuel economy results for the CX-3.

The North American CX-3 is powered by a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine and not the 1.5-liter system on the Japanese model. Just like the all-new Roadster (MX-5), the decision to go with a more powerful engine is in response to customer preferences and the driving environment in the US.

This 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G engine generates 146hp of maximum output and 20.2kgm of maximum torque.

The EPA-estimated fuel economy (for the front-wheel-drive models) was 12.3km/liter city, 14.9km/liter highway, and 13.2km/liter combined.

Mazda North American Operations described its results as “class-leading fuel economy amongst subcompact crossover utility vehicles”.
