2014 LA Auto Show Video: Mazda's Jim O'Sullivan On New 2016 CX-3

The all-new 2016 Mazda CX-3 (above) compact crossover SUV will be powered by a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine in North America mated to an automatic transmission with either front- or all-wheel-drive. Output details and specifications will be revealed closer to launch in summer 2015.

The 2016 MX-5 Miata (right), with a curb weight approximately 200 pounds lighter than the outgoing model, is also powered by a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine.

Mazda6 and CX-5 receive revised front and rear lights, LED lighting on certain trim levels, Mazda Connect, an electric parking brake and newly designed alloy wheels. Exclusive to Mazda6 is the addition of the edge-lit five-point grille on certain trim levels.

Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations discusses the new introductions.
