The Nissan Juke is one of the most ridiculously entertaining compact crossovers on the market, and only one company could give that high-riding insectile freak a run for its money. And that's exactly what Mazda plans to do with the new CX-3.


Set to debut at the LA Auto Show next month, the CX-3 is based on the same platform as the Mazda2 and will likely be powered by the a variant of the 2.0-liter SkyActive engine that's set to motivate the U.S.-spec MX-5.

Mazda is also using the LA show to show off a facelifted Mazda6 and CX-5 for the 2016 model year, both of which will benefit from a new nose, reworked interior, and an upgraded infotainment system pulled from the Mazda3. All three models should go on sale early next year.
