2017 Mazda CX-3 Technology Highlights


The 2017 Mazda CX-3 has earned a reputation for itself as an agile subcompact crossover with head-turning looks and an adaptable cabin. While all of that is certainly true, the five-passenger interior of this model is also impressively equipped with a full lineup of high-tech features. From the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system to the Bose® sound system and Active Driving Display, there’s a lot worth exploring inside the newest rendition of this crossover vehicle. Before coming in and seeing the new Mazda CX-3 in person here at Mazda of Manchester, take a closer look at the kinds of advanced technology it promises.


Served up on a high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen interface, the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system puts all the technology features you could hope for right at your fingertips. In addition to standard features like Bluetooth® phone and audio, Internet radio, and a USB port and auxiliary input, higher trim levels add features like HD Radio, satellite radio, and an integrated navigation system to the mix.

Commander Control Knob

Sure, you can control the MAZDA CONNECT™ system via the touchscreen. But inside the new Mazda CX-3, you’ll also have access to the many features on the display via the Commander control knob, which is located between the center console and center stack and gives you shortcut access and back button capabilities, making navigating to the feature of your choice easier than ever!

Bose® Sound System

Available on the Touring trim and standard on the Grand Touring model, the Bose® sound system allows you to enjoy all your favorite media sources and music with genuinely premium sound. This seven-speaker surround-sound stereo system offers all five passengers pristine sound quality that leaves a true impression.

Active Driving Display

With all that media at your disposal, you need an easy way to keep track of everything without taking your eyes off the wheel. The available Active Driving Display does just that by projecting important information like your speed, the speed limit, and navigation directions above the gauge cluster right in the driver’s line of vision.
