Mazda Malaysia has just launch the CKD (Complete Knock-Down) unit of the Mazda 3. For those who don’t know, this means that Mazda 3 will be assemble locally in their plant in Kedah. With most of the import tax being eliminated, Mazda Malaysia is able to bring down the Mazda 3 price lower which to us a huge differences about +- RM10,000.
The local assemble Mazda 3 Malaysia will also wear a badge either GL or GLS on the right side of the boot, depending on the model variant.
