Introduction

The CX-30 is essentially a Mazda 3 on stilts, sitting between the CX-3 and CX-5 and rivalling the likes of the Skoda Karoq.

It'll be available with a range of Skyactive petrol and diesel engines, including the company's Spark Plug Controlled Compression Ignition technology - said to combine the free-revving performance of a petrol engine with the fuel economy of a diesel. All engines will feature mild hybrid technology using an electric motor and a 24V lithium-ion battery mounted between the wheels.

Technology includes Mazda's Driver Monitoring system, which uses an infrared camera and infrared LED to identify when the driver needs to take a break. Front Cross Traffic Alert is available on the CX-30, as is Mazda's Cruising and Traffic Support. The latter assists with accelerator, brake pedal and steering operations when stuck in traffic.

Mazda claims that four full-sized passengers will be able to comfortably fit in the CX-30, while 430 litres of luggage space puts it on a par with the Nissan Qashqai.

The Mazda CX-30 will go on sale around the world late in 2019 - but it's yet to be confirmed whether it's coming to the UK market.
