The design of the CX-30 follows Mazda’s award-winning Kodo Design Language, using a next-generation platform architecture to make the impossible possible. The CX-30 sits size-wise between the current CX-3 and CX-5 SUVs. Woven into the Kodo styling’s flowing, captivating curves, is a rough-and-ready off-roader look thanks to black, rugged wheel-arches and bumpers.
The interior of the CX-30 is spacious and supremely comfortable, with similar styling to the also-recently announced New Mazda 3. The minimalist-approach to styling results in a high-quality, clean-cut look and feel to the interior dashboard. There is space for 4 adults, a 430-litre boot, the same 8.8” infotainment screen as the New 3, and an optional 12-speaker Bose sound system.
The CX-30’s interior has been designed with Mazda’s advanced human-centric design; rewarding the driver with a snug, symmetrical and distraction-free cockpit, where it’s easy to focus and feel in total control. On busy city streets, driving feels stress-free. Passengers can also immediately relax in the airy, refined and quiet space, and feel refreshed on even the longest of drives.
The CX-30 will be powered by the same range of Mazda SKYACTIV petrol and diesel engines, which will be paired with Mazda’s new M-Hybrid system. This new system mates the internal-combustion engines with a small electric motor and battery to assist the engines and improve fuel economy. SKYACTIV engines deliver exhilarating performance, outstanding fuel economy and low emissions.
Announced alongside the New Mazda3 in early-2019, Mazda’s brand new SKYACTIV-X petrol-engine technology will also be available as an option on the CX-30. SKYACTIV-X technology offers petrol-engine performance and smoothness, with diesel-engine levels of fuel efficiency.
Entry-level CX-30 models will be available with 2-wheel drive and a manual gearbox; while top-spec models will be available with 4-Wheel drive and either manual or automatic gearboxes.
