Lowered CX-3 Air Runner on Lowenhart LV5 Wheels



Here's an example of what can be done after market with the CX-3. Air suspension manufacturers ACC worked on the CX-3 and did a number of mods. The new ACC Airrunner suspension system can lower the vehicle by 100mm, and the cool thing about air suspension is that the CX-3 can go from riding low to high in just a moment. So its still quite versatile. An air tank is under the trunk floor for the air suspension.

The only other mod is a set of 19-inch LV5 wheels from Japanese specialist company Lowenhart.

Anyone inspired?

Looks great but would hurt performance.Added weight especially unsprung is bad.

Seeing someone has finally gone this far with the CX-3 is great to see but i'm not a fan of the wheels at all, doesn't complement the CX-3 one bit.

Those mods doesn't represent a 146 HP/146 TQ car.
Seems fakey to roll around in that & be called a ricer no less.

For some reason the word "Poser" comes to mind.
I actually prefer the style and color over the Mazda wheels but the size appears impractical ,likely to deliver a harsh ride ,increased road noise and diminished acceleration.

At least it's one of the better ricers out there, expensive setup.
I'd like it if wheels that actually looked good were used.

Wheels are take them or leave them but its cool to see it in a nice low stance. Now if they put a faster engine in it I'll take it.
