The updated dash of the CX-3 comes with a bigger centre display.
TOKYO: It has been a long time coming but Mazda Japan is finally giving the Mazda2 and CX-3 a bigger infotainment screen than the 7-inch they have been having for ages.
The new 8.8-inch system providing connected services remains affixed to the top of the dashboard.
The updated Mazda2 is slated to go on sale in late December, while the CX-3 would hit the domestic showrooms in February 2024.
It would be reasonable to expect the change to cascade to the same models sold outside Japan. Apart from the bigger centre display, the models also come with some cosmetic tweaks.
The current generation Mazda2 will be marking its 10th anniversary next year, while the CX-3 is also an ageing model, having been around since 2014.
In Japan the two models are available in diesel and petrol forms as well as manual and automatic transmissions. Customers can also choose from front- or all-wheel drive specifications.
In the United States, the CX-3 has been replaced by the bigger CX-30.
