KOTA KINABALU: Maxspeed Automart Sdn Bhd has launched the all-new Mazda CX-3, a freestyle crossover SUV (sport utility vehicle) yesterday by offering three years warranty and maintenance.
Its 3S branch manager Victoria Chong Ing Ing said the Mazda CX3 is equipped with 154- horsepower in a 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine which is the biggest in the market for this SUV segment compared to other brands which only offer either 1.3-litre or 1.5-litre.
“The CX-3 is a fully imported Japanese car and it is the scaled down version of Mazda’s best-selling CX-5, a fifth model in Mazda’s line-up of new generation vehicles to adopt the full range of skyactiv technology,” said Victoria during the unveiling ceremony of the sporty car at Maxspeed’s Donggongon branch.
“The car was launched in Malaysia in mid-December last year and so far for the Donggongon branch we have received 11 bookings and we hope to get 30 bookings before the end of this month,” disclosed Victoria.
Maxspeed’s managing director Philip Lau said the dynamic eye-catching design of the car has created a lot of excitement among its customers and this had contributed to the high numbers of pre-bookings. But, at the moment there are only 2,000 units available throughout Malaysia.- Sayangsabah
