Thats a pretty early release for a carryover model. Nice upgrades for Sport and Touring trim as well as those wanting i-Activesense but didn't want to pay the premium for the package. Otherwise, its about what I expected.

2016 CX3 GT w/ i-Activesense. Black on Parchment and lovin it!

I'm wondering if the 18" wheels on the Touring will be the same as the design for the Grand Touring model. Also, I would have gone with the i-Activesense package at that price!

I may have missed something, but the GT top of line model appears to be a carbon copy of the 2016 model that I have been driving since last Fall. So what is new? I would like to see the Canadian version get the Smart braking/adaptive cruise that the American version got in the 2016 model. And I'd really like to see the stop engine braking and i-eloop technology that Europe already has, but these are not mentioned.

I highly doubt a manual transmission option will come to US, the market is just not there for Mazda to invest money in it.
