I wonder which trim level gets the large speedo, and which gets the large tachometer? Or maybe one is for manual transmission, and the other is for automatic? Pics are from Australian website:
That is what I was thinking too, but I couldn't tell if the display was a screen or if it was a physical gauge.If I had to say for sure... you can probaably switch between the two in a menu somewhere...
notice how the speedo has a tach on the left side...
but then again the door ajar and seatbelt light move positions...
The interior is also handsome. The design and layout are similar to the Mazda 2 and even the Mazda 3, with an instrument panel dominated by a center-mounted tachometer.
Same thing I was thinking too.. Kinda like the 3 series here in the US... The higher trims get the head up display with tachIf one has the Heads Up Display one gets the tach, and if you get the entry level without the Heads Up Display than you get the Speedo. Makes sense
Navigation directional arrows on the display was one of my favorite things, no need to look over at an entire map!A friend has a mazda 3 with HUD. He tells me he never looks at the instrument cluster.
This picture from the CX3 Mazda site shows the speed in the middle of the cluster. Its hard to tell if its a screen or a gauge with a needle from the picture though.
Seen the CX-3 GT-M this morning. Very nice and compact car! I will not be surprised if the CX-3 is going to be a hit for Mazda.
The Dial Cluster was not illuminated (batt. connection removed) but the cluster was the same as the picture above. The needle is a real needle.
