Mazda Australia has handed down new details for its coming CX-3 compact SUV, ahead of a late March showroom debut.

The CX-3’s market launch will also introduce two new trim-grade names for the Mazda brand: sTouring and Akari.

Akari, a Japanese name meaning “light” or “glimmer”, will sit at the top of the CX-3 range, while sTouring is likely to be a high-spec sports trim above the Touring grade.

Mazda has also confirmed fuel figures for the local CX-3 range, which will be driven by a choice of 109kW/192Nm 2.0 litre petrol and 77kW/270Nm 1.5 diesel engines.

In front-wheel-drive 2.0 petrol and six-speed auto form, the CX-3 will list fuel consumption numbers starting from 6.1 l/100km.

With the front-wheel-drive 1.5 diesel and six-speed auto, fuel use starts from a low 4.8 l/100km.

Figures for the wider CX-3 range, including the all-wheel-drive and six-speed manual models, are still to be confirmed. Likewise, pricing and features will be confirmed closer to next month’s launch.
