Mazda Planning Product Onslaught For Los Angeles Auto Show

Mazda will debut an all-new crossover, and facelifted versions of two of its most popular models at next month’s Los Angeles Auto Show.

The CX-3 crossover, shown above, will be unveiled, alongside revised versions of the larger CX-5 crossover and the Mazda6 sedan. The CX-3 will be based on the Mazda2’s underpinnings, and compete with the Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V and other small crossovers.

The CX-3 is expected to get a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, but will likely only be offered with all-wheel drive. The CX-5 and Mazda6 will get styling updates both inside and out, as well as a new infotainment system currently used on the Mazda3.

    2.0L for the CX-3 sounds good, although I'd like to see it as an option on the new Mazda2 as well. If Mazda is serious about pushing the brand upmarket, they're going to have to offer some upmarket powertrains pretty soon. I'm very interested in seeing what they equip the next CX-9 with, because an NA 2.5L obviously won't cut it in that application.

    I'm waiting for a Mazdaspeed CX-5, something along the lines of the original CX-5 concept, along with more power...

    Only one of three of my comments have been posted! Still problems here?

      @Lorenzo I think you've done half their work for them by isolating the suspect character combination.

    If this is a "product onslaught" I'd hate to see a mild reshuffle.
