We contacted the dealer ourselves to verify the listing, and yes, make no mistake about what you’re seeing here, this one’s for real.

For now, the SA we spoke to says that only the sole, top-spec variant is being listed, presumably while Bermaz Motor sorts out if or not there will be further lower-spec variants. So far, we’ve seen the CX-3’s sibling, the Mazda 2, only offered as one variant, albeit for the two body styles (sedan, hatchback).
Still, going off what highlights this dealer has outlined, it looks like a very competitive kit is being offered, a list that could very well challenge the steam-rolling Honda HR-V.
The estimated price for the CX-3 lines up accurately to what we reported on earlier as well, which was a Bermaz in-house magazine (Zoom Zoom, 2015 Volume 1).
The magazine depicted similar specifications to this listing, showing a SkyActiv-G 2.0-litre petrol engine option paired with a SkyActiv-DRIVE six-speed torque converter automatic.
Total output for the vehicle is rated at 150hp and 204Nm of torque. Although, this listing rates the output at 155hp and 200Nm of torque – let’s wait on Bermaz before finalising that point.
Other key highlights of the fully-imported (CBU Japan) top-spec CX-3 include an MZD Connect infotainment system, Head-Up Display, leather seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic Stability Control and Traction Control System, Hill-Launch Assist, six airbags and more.
Officially, we also hear that the 2015 Mazda CX-3 is due for a local launch come November, this year.
