Mazda CX-30 2020 Radio Review


Mazda CX-30 4 exteriorMazda has a number of SUVs and the latest is the CX-30 yet its name is confusing. Rob Fraser  tells us more.

Mazda’s model naming system has caught up with them in the new, Mazda3-based CX-30. It should be called a CX-3 but there’s already one of those… based on a Mazda 2.

There was always going to be an SUV born of Mazda3 small car and the CX-30 is a worthy development. Its a Mazda3 hatch on plumped out a touch and with a more practical nature.

It has 5 seats and sits tightly between CX-3 and CX-5 size-wise with two naturally aspirated petrol engines, a 2.0-litre and a 2.5-litre.

All models get a six speed auto and all the 2-0-litre models are front wheel drive with AWD only available with the larger 2.5.

Advanced driver assist technology is fitted to all models.

Priced from just under $30,000 to about $43,500 plus the usual costs it’s a worth addition to the growing rank’s of medium sized SUVs.
