We’ve already run through the new hybrid offerings in Mazda Philippines’ lineup, so it’s time to get the lowdown on the gasoline-powered models that just received new faces.

First up is the updated Mazda CX-3. This new crossover is different from the one launched in Japan in 2020 with the new 1.5-liter SkyActiv-G engine. Our version retains its 2.0-liter gasoline powertrain that churns out 148hp and 195Nm and is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The new CX-3 also retains its exterior look.

The majority of the changes can be seen inside the cabin, where it sports new black leatherette seats in the Sport variant and white leatherette seats with tan Grand Luxe cushions in the Elegance trim.

Apart from the addition of a second variant, the CX-3 also gets a new Mazda Connect infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and a seven-speaker Bose audio setup. The 2022 models also boast a smart keyless entry system and a reversing camera with rear parking sensors.

Capping off the list of new introductions is the refreshed Mazda 2, which is now only available as a five-door. The Mazda 2 Hatchback sports new LED daytime running lights up front and sits on 16-inch black alloy wheels. Inside, it gets leather seats with a dark blue finish.

The 2 retains its 1.5-liter SkyActiv-G gasoline mill that’s capable of 108hp and 142Nm. It receives several tech upgrades, including wireless Apple CarPlay, smartphone mirroring, and a wireless charging pad. It is also equipped with i-Activsense features such as lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

The refreshed CX-3 comes with a P1,490,000 price tag for both variants, while the Mazda 2 Hatchback stickers for P1,195,000. These complete the 2022 Mazda Premium Collection.

“Mazda’s journey to premium continues into 2022.
