Mazda CX-30 (2019–)

Model History

March 2019

Mazda CX-30 revealed

The CX-30 will slot in between the CX-3 and CX-5 in Mazda's range and be priced from around £22,000 when it goes on sale in the UK later in 2019.

4,395 mm long x 1,795 mm wide x 1,540 mm high on a 2,655 mm wheelbase

The CX-30 was originally expected to be badged the CX-4, but 4 is an unluckly number to Cantonese Chinese, synonomous with "death".

Full details of Mazda CX-30 revealed

Features latest developments in Mazda's new-generation Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, which not only harnesses people's inherent balance ability for greater on-board comfort, but also affords a reduction in, and control of, NVH facilitating a unique 'quality of quietness' in the cabin.

This is conjunction with smart technologies such as an evolved i-Activ all-wheel-drive (AWD) system which works in harmony with G-Vectoring Control (GVC) to control torque distribution between the front and rear wheels, this promotes an even more engaging 'Jinba Ittai 'driving experience.

Powertrains feature the latest Skyactiv petrol and diesel engines, including Mazda's revolutionary Spark Plug Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) technology, which adopts a unique combustion method to combine the free-revving performance of a petrol engine with the superior response of a diesel.

Luggage capacity seats up is 430L (VDA), enough to simultaneously accommodate a large, global-standard baby buggy and a carry-on bag. Lift gate opening width is 1030mm, while the height of the loading lip is just 731mm, for easy loading and unloading of heavy or bulky cargo.

The Skyactiv-D 1.8 develops 116 PS at 4,000 rpm and maximum torque of 270 Nm at 1,600-2,600 rpm.

The Mazda CX-30 Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre has the Mazda M Hybrid system to support greater gains in fuel economy. The cylinder deactivation system shuts down two of the engine’s four cylinders in light-load situations, such as when cruising at a constant speed.

The unit develops 122 PS at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 213 Nm at 4,000 rpm. It combines an average fuel consumption of 5.3-9.7 l/100 km (WLTP) with CO2 emissions of 141-165 g/km (WLTP). This clean and efficient engine comes with a choice of six-speed Skyactiv-MT manual or six-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic transmissions

Both Mazda CX-30 petrol engines adopt the intelligent Mazda M Hybrid system as standard. This mild hybrid technology helps improve fuel economy by regenerating energy recovered during deceleration and via an electric motor that assists the engine. A belt-driven integrated starter generator (ISG) converts the kinetic energy recovered during deceleration into electric power and stores that power in a 24V lithium-ion battery. The system then uses a DC-DC converter to convert that power to the appropriate voltage and supplies it to the car’s electrical equipment.

Mazda CX-30 priced from £22,895

Mazda has announced the price and specification of its new CX-30 compact SUV, which will arrive in the UK in January 2020. Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the CX-30 enters a new market segment for Mazda, slotting into the firm’s SUV range between the CX-3 and CX-5.

Following the launch of the all-new Mazda3 earlier this year, the Mazda CX-30 is the second model in the company’s next generation line-up and the second to feature the ground-breaking Skyactiv-X spark-controlled compression ignition engine. Combining the bold stance of an SUV with the sleek profile of a coupe, its styling is a sophisticated evolution of Mazda’s KODO design philosophy, while it’s spacious and versatile cabin ensures it has the practicality and comfort demanded by customers in this popular sector.

Available in five trim levels – SE-L, SE-L Lux, Sport Lux, GT Sport and GT Sport Tech - the new CX-30 features Mazda’s characteristic generous standard equipment across the entire range, and is offered in the UK with a choice of two petrol engines, both of which feature the 24v Mazda M Hybrid mild-hybrid system.

Familiar from the recently launched all-new Mazda3, the 122ps 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine features cylinder-deactivation and is exclusively matched to front-wheel drive with a choice of automatic or manual transmission across all five trim levels. Likewise, the ground-breaking Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) Skyactiv-X petrol engine is also offered across all grades with a choice of transmission. Additionally from Sport Lux upwards, the Skyactiv-X CX-30 is available with Mazda’s latest advanced i-Activ all-wheel drive system.

Thanks to its unique combustion method in which spark plug ignition is used to control compression ignition, the resulting efficiencies mean this 180ps petrol SPCCI engine delivers diesel rivalling economy combined with low CO2 emissions and flexible performance. With emissions as low as 105g/km and WLTP combined economy as high as 47.9mpg, the Skyactiv-X engine is the perfect solution for private and fleet customers, offering the ideal alternative to diesel in a segment that has seen demand for diesel powered cars dramatically reduce.

While Mazda is committed to diesel and the development of next-generation clean diesel engines for appropriate sectors, the abilities of Skyactiv-X and diminishing consumer demand for diesel engines in the compact SUV segment mean that in the UK the Mazda CX-30 will be exclusively petrol.

As with the all-new Mazda3, the CX-30 features a generous standard equipment tally across the whole range with every car featuring a colour windscreen projecting head-up display, radar cruise control and LED headlights to name just a few of the high-grade items found on every model. Visually, the CX-30’s sleek upper body hints at the streamlined silhouette of a coupe, while the black cladding lower down, and the CX-30’s dimensions deliver the sense of rugged stability you’d expect of an SUV.

With a choice of eight exterior colours, SE-L and SE-L Lux cars feature 16-inch grey metallic wheels, while from Sport Lux onwards 18-inch wheels are standard: silver metallic on Skyactiv-G and bright silver metallic on Skyactiv-X models.

Inside, premium dark grey cloth with navy blue accents is standard, while GT Sport and GT Sport Tech models feature black leather with rich brown accents or for £200 stone coloured leather. With a high-quality, stylish and practical cabin, the Mazda CX-30’s interior sets new standards for a Mazda SUV, while the 430-litre boot ensures it’s as practical as it is desirable.

Priced from £22,895 to £33,495 the 26 model Mazda CX-30 range will arrive in UK dealers in January 2020, but is available to order now.
