Mazda MX-30 Astina Mild Hybrid 2021 Review

Mazda MX-30 was launched earlier this year as a mild hybrid with a fully electric version coming later and available now by order.

The first thing you notice is the unusual design that either people seemed to like or dislike. Its neither SUV, Wagon nor hatchback. It is a four door design but with rear suicide doors, and a large boot and long bonnet and distinctive grill and front lighting area.


Initially there are three mild hybrid models with one engine and transmission

MX-30 M Hybrid range combines a 114kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with Mazda’s own M Hybrid system. This system sends drive to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. There is no electric only drive in this version.

It is typical of all Mazda cars in that it is put together well, quiet, rides well and does nothing wrong.

It is however very confusing as to why it was actually designed. It appears to be very different for difference sake.

Priced from just under $34,000 plus the usual costs it will be interesting to see buyers appetite for something so different. I wonder why Mazda didn’t simply introduce all electric versions of their existing models.
