New CX-3 owner in Austin

Took delivery tonight of a FWD Grand Touring model in Deep Crystal Blue Mica. Vehicle was scheduled to arrive next week, but showed up this afternoon way ahead of schedule. Waiting for daylight to put it through its paces, spending tonight going over the "quick start" guide and paging through the manual.

No iActiveSense package, no extras. Easy trade-in and easy sale. Looking forward to learning the bells and whistles, but initial impression is that it handles great and is a very comfy ride.

Interior is black with black suede inserts.

The Crystal Blue Mica shows subtle changes in different light; after a rainy morning, the sun is blazing, and this is a mediocre image of the vehicle in bright light.

Thankfully that interior is not leather since black interiors during warm weather isn't a nice combination although there are ways to manage it.

Good choice!

Good choice!

Actually, on the GT,the seats are mostly leather with Alcantara inserts in the central seat and door panels. Alcantara being a high quality synthetic that mimics suede, found in the likes of Lambos and McClarens.

Not sure what the material is on the lower door arm rests and the knee contact patches on the central tunnel, you know, the red stuff.

The red stuff may be black only with the 2 blue (dark and light) exteriors, unless someone knows better.

The red stuff is indeed red on the Deep Crystal Blue Mica version of the GT.
