2019 Machine Grey CX-3 GT

Hey all,

Just wanted to post some pictures of the 2019 Mazda CX-3 GT I picked up almost 2 weeks ago. My leased 2016 CX-3 was traded for this one, so I'm very familiar with the differences between the two -- in case you have any questions! I decided to post pictures as a reference for others since I found it difficult to find images of this colour combination and accessories.

Model: Mazda CX-3 GT
Year: 2019
Exterior Colour: Machine Grey
Interior Colour: Pure White
Ext Accessories: Mazda OEM Roof Rack, 20% tint

Very nice! Look at all that console storage space (not-to-mention the HR-V style electric brake ;-)

I really like what Mazda has done with the center console. The infotainment system controls no longer look like they were squeezed-into their space.

It's possible I will be getting a 2019 Mazda CX3 GT on Monday.
Do you find that HUD on the dash infront of you a nuisance?
I haven't actually seen the vehicle yet, as they are getting it from another dealership.
I'm short lol 5'2.
Thanks!

I saw one in the flesh at my dealership last week. Bastards finally added a real armrest.

Might it be possible to retrofit the armrest?

Hi there! I don’t find it’s a nuisance at all and I think you’ll really enjoy the HUD once you get used to it. It’s height adjustable so you should be able to raise or lower the display to fit your height. My partner is also 5’2” and she loves it!

I find it so helpful, that it’s missed it when I’m in other cars...I find that it helps to keep your eyes on the road by providing all nessessary info at a glance.

Enjoy your new cx3!

Welcome to the forum and congratulations of your potential purchase of the 2019 CX-3 GT.

As regards the HUD, I find it very useful and always use it for checking speed and some other information as it is in line of sight. You can adjust the display to take account of your eyesight line. Assuming the US model is the same for the HUD as that in Europe, you should find the following extract from the 2016 owner manual is of use as a guide :-

Each setting/adjustment for the active driving display can be performed on the centre display

1. Select the icon on the home screen and display the Settings screen.
2. Select the AD-Disp tab.
3. Select the desired item and perform the setting/adjustment.

Height : Active driving display position
Brightness Control : Method for adjusting screen brightness (Automatically/Manually)
Calibration : Brightness initialization setting (when selecting automatic adjustment)
Brightness : Brightness adjustment (when selecting manual adjustment)
Navigation : On/Off
Active Driving Display : On/Off
Reset

So if you do find the HUD either a nuisance or useless from your viewpoint, you have the option to turn it off which I'm assuming would mean the plastic display screen stays folded down out of the way. I'd recommend you give it a try and adjust it till you can view it easily and see how you get on with it. I gather the latest HUD now shows speed limit signs so there would be additional settings to those shown above.

Thank you for your time. One last question if u also have the GT. I was told that with the 18Ē wheels the ride isnít as smooth. I guess I will find out Monday when I take it for a spin. My main concern is winter driving. But I will be buying snow tires too.
