The 2021 Mazda CX-30  has successfully created a sophisticated design language through finely honed, minimalist styling. It has flowing elegance of a coupe combined with the toughness of an SUV.

CX-30’s elegantly restrained body form generates a delicate play of light and reflections that change over time to create styling with a natural, dynamic feel.

There is a significant amount of focus on space and comfort in the CX-30. This has resulted in a notably well packaged and versatile interior. With its combination of quality, premium materials, smart design and practicality this modern crossover SUV has definitely set new standards for vehicles in its class.

With decent amount of ground clearance and an all wheel drive system, the CX-30 can take on a variety of terrains in addition to bossing the tarmac. Deep sand is a big no no, but it is right at home on rocky or muddy trails.

This exceptional crossover SUV from Mazda offers decent acceleration for a 2.0 liter naturally aspirated engine and clocks a top speed of 192 Km per hour. The fuel economy on the highway is measured around 16 kilometers per liter but inside the city, you can expect it to be between 10 and 12 liters. There is minimal wind noise but when you really push the pedal to the metal, you can hear a bit engine and road noise inside the cabin.

Engine: 2.0 Liter – 4 Cylinders Inline
Horsepower: 153 Bhp
Torque: 200 Nm

Exterior:

The front styling conveys a refined, yet bold personality. Mazda’s signature wing takes on a sharper and deeper form that combines with the solid, sculpted contours of the front bumper to achieve a composition strongly suggestive of forward motion.

The size and pattern of the radiator grille’s triangular motif are tightly controlled to show rich variations according to the viewing angle and changes in light.

The thickness and shape of the A-pillars have been optimized to reduce blind spots; the C-pillar is shaped to provide optimal visibility out of the rear quarter window, while the rear door and quarter windows allow drivers to easily see vehicles positioned diagonally behind the car.

The Mazda CX-30 is currently offered with 18-inch alloy wheels. From the back, the rear wings stand proud from the tapered rear cabin and the tailgate has a correspondingly narrowed arch shape.

In combination, this creates a sensuously powerful rear form akin to the wide, dynamic stance of a sports car.

Interior:

The basic cabin layout combines a snug and condensed cockpit area for the driver, and a clean, airy open space around the front passenger. The Head-Up Display system, driving dials and central display screen have all been designed to present information in a clear, simple fashion, while the fonts used have been unified to create a pleasing and consistent look.

The spacing of the front seats allows for a wide floor console with a refined layout and a large centre armrest. Equally spacious rear seat separation facilitates big rear centre armrest and door armrests, allowing rear seat occupants to enjoy a comfortable, relaxed seating posture.

The Mazda CX-30 features the very latest version of Mazda Connect, which combines an 8.8-inch color centre screen controlled by the centrally mounted Multimedia Commander Control. This allows for easy control of all infotainment, settings and connectivity applications, and features significantly improved safety and user-friendliness.

There is enough head and leg room for the rear passengers. The seats are comfortable and even on longer drives, three passengers can sit in comfortably.

Luggage capacity is a generous 430 litres, enough to simultaneously accommodate a large, global-standard baby buggy and a carry-on bag. The power operated tailgate features one touch opening and closing for more convenience.
