Mazda CX-3 Akari Oz 03

A Mazda dealer has announced on its Facebook page that the Mazda CX-3 is open for booking, and in response to a user comment, has revealed an estimated RM120k-130k price range.

We rang the dealer, who told us the cars are arriving in July, ahead of deliveries expected in August. This tallies with what Bermaz sources revealed to us in February.

At the time, we were told only one “very-highly-specced” front-wheel drive variant would be offered, with six airbags and a head-up display.

Fully-imported (CBU) from Japan, our car should have a 2.0 litre SkyActiv-G petrol engine and a six-speed auto. Do you think our Honda HR-V will have cause for worry?
