Out of the three trim choices available for the Mazda CX-3, the GX is the base offering, giving you the features you need in the compact SUV at an affordable price. As the base trim, there are limited options available for this particular model, but you can still customize the GX in a few important ways.


Mazda CX-3 GX Engine, Transmission, and Drivetrain


The CX-3 GX comes with the SkyActiv-G 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine which is the only one available for the model. This model has 16 valves and a DOHC style. It generates 146 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 146 pound-feet of torque at 2,800 rpm and has an impressive compression ratio of 13.0:1. The transmission in the GX trim is the SkyActiv-Drive 6-speed automatic with a Drive Selection switch and SPORT mode. Although it comes standard with front-wheel drive, you can opt for the i-ACTIV AWD system. Front-wheel drive gives you 8.2 L/100km in the city and 6.7 on the highway while AWD only does slightly worse at 8.8 city/7.3 highway.


Standard engineering features include a front independent MacPherson strut suspension featuring coil springs, a rear torsion beam suspension, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, an Anti-lock Brake System, front stabilizer bars, Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control, and Hill Launch Assist.


Mazda CX-3 GX Comfort and Convenience


The driver in the GX trim gets to relax in a 6-way manually adjustable set while the passenger’s seat is 4-way manually adjustable. The rear seatback splits 60/40 and folds and there is cloth upholstery throughout. Other standard features for comfort and convenience in the Mazda CX-3 GX include power windows, cruise controls on the steering wheel, air conditioning, Push Button Start, a remote keyless entry system, and a 12-volt power outlet.


GX Exterior


The 16-inch steel wheels on the Mazda CX-3 GX have covers and come with 215/60R16 all-season tires as well as a tire pressure monitoring system. The power operated door mirrors and door handles are both body-colored, as is the rear roof spoiler. The door locks are speed-sensing and have double action while the halogen headlights have an automatic shutoff. You also get variable intermittent windshield wipers in front and an intermittent washer and wiper in the rear.


GX Technology


The Mazda CX-3 GX is ready for navigation so you just have to add the appropriate navigation SD-card accessory. There is also a rearview camera and HMI commander. In addition to the warning lights, tachometer, and trip computer, the GX also gets MAZDA Connect, a 7-inch color touch-screen, AM/FM/CD player with MP3 functionality, 6 speakers, an auxiliary audio input jack, 2 USB ports, and steering wheel controls for Bluetooth and audio.


GX Safety


To keep you safe at all times in your CX-3 GX, there are dual side air curtains, front side airbags, and dual front airbags as well as height-adjustable head restraints throughout, seatbelt pretensioners in the front, and child-seat anchors integrated into the SUV.
