Mazda CX-3 inches closer

A new sub-compact Mazda CX-3 SUV has already been penned and appears very close to making its debut. CarAdvice exclusively reported the Japanese brand’s plans for a new baby SUV to sit below the CX-5 in 2012, but it appears the new model could be closer than first anticipated. The company hasn’t confirmed it will build a CX-3 model to rival the likes of the Holden Trax, Peugeot 2008, Ford EcoSport and Nissan Juke, according to Mazda Australia public relations manager, Steve Maciver.

Speaking to the media at yesterday’s Geneva Motor Show, Sergio Marchionne said the project with Mazda is still on going, but hinted that it’s unlikely to be used as an Alfa Romeo model.
