In conjunction with Mazda’s 100th anniversary, Bermaz Motor Sdn Bhd, the authorised distributor of Mazda vehicles in Malaysia has introduced the CX-3 Limited Edition to commemorate the occasion.
Developed by Bermaz’s MazdaSports Division, the limited edition CX-3 features various enhancements such as a unique bodykit which comprises two-tone body paint with a Piano Black roof, a front lip spoiler, a rear spoiler, Gunmetal design 18-inch alloy wheels, brushed aluminium exhaust tips, and Mazda 100th Anniversary Badges.
Inside, the theme extends to the seats, steering wheel, armrest, and the gear knob that feature a unique dark gray suede finish to match the dashboard and door trims.
Complementing the package is the Black limited edition carpet mats, and a JBL Basspro Hub 11-inch subwoofer.
Other functional enhancements include a front strut tower brace that covers the engine as well as lower front, mid and rear chassis bars for a sportier driving experience.
Power still comes courtesy of the same naturally aspirated 2.0-litre 4-cylinder SkyActiv-G petrol engine that produces 156 PSand 206 Nm of torque, which is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Limited to just 25 units, the Limited Edition package costs RM 14,500 on top of the stock CX-3 which now asks for RM126,829 (minus SST).
According to Bermaz, the Limited Edition package also comes with a 1-Year Mazda Genuine Accessory Warranty based on the period of fitment at the time of new vehicle purchase.
The limited edition CX-3 is now open for reservation and orders can be placed at any of the Mazda outlets.
As this a unique production build model, expected delivery is by the end July 2020 and will come exclusively in the Snowflake White Pearl colour.
