The new Mazda CX-3 will be priced from £17,595 when it goes on sale in the UK this June.  It will be offered in five model grades with three engines.

The CX-3 range starts with a 120PS 2.0-litre petrol engine that’s mated to either a six-speed manual or an optional automatic transmission, both of which drive the front wheels.

It’s a respectable performer, completing the 0-62mph sprint in 9.0 seconds dead, while emitting 137 g/km of CO2 and achieving up to 47.8 mpg.

A four-wheel-drive model arrives in the guise of a 150PS version of the same engine, available exclusively in Sport Nav trim.

It’s marginally quicker at 8.7 seconds 0-62mph, with emissions of 150 g/km and economy up to 44.1 mpg.

Likely to account for 50% of UK sales, however, is the new 1.5-litre diesel model.  Its modest-sounding 105PS is matched by 270Nm of torque available from 1,600 to 2,500 rpm, enough to yield a 0-62mph time of 10.1 seconds.

It only just misses out on being free of road tax, with CO2 emissions of 105 g/km and economy up to 70.6 mpg.

Five grades will be available – SE, SE Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav and Sport Nav.

All models feature alloy wheels – 16″ on the SE, 18″ on the Sport Nav – as well as heated power-folding door mirrors, air conditioning, cruise control, DAB digital radio, and Bluetooth connectivity.

SE-L models add LED running lights, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and wipers, heated front seats, climate control, rear privacy glass, and a pair of electronic safety aids in the form of lane departure warning and Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support.

Top-of-the range Sport Nav models go on to add LED headlights and tail-lights, a reversing camera, half-leather seats, keyless entry, head-up display, and a seven-speaker Bose stereo.

All Nav models include three years of free European map updates, built in to the company’s excellent MZD Connect infotainment system.

The new Mazda CX-3 arrives in UK showrooms on 19th June 2015.
