2019 Euro-Spec Mazda CX-3 Debuts New Diesel Engine And Sport Black+ Special Edition

The updated Mazda CX-3 is already on sale in the United States and Japan, and will finally arrive in showrooms across Europe later this month.

The brand’s rival to the likes of the Peugeot 2008, Renault Captur and other subcompact SUVs debuts not only these modest updates, but a new diesel engine too, with 1.8 liters in displacement, said to meet the WLTP emissions requirements.

Moreover, from October 1, the automaker will launch the Mazda CX-3 Sport Black+. The special edition model is limited to 500 units, all of them getting standard metallic paint, black roof spoiler and side mirror caps, and a black leather interior, in addition to a host of gear that has yet to be detailed.
