Mazda CX-30 Subcompact SUV Leverages Sporting Cred & Practicality

Mazda has always had a lovable side with the Miata roadster and those years of the 3 Series smiley face grille. Recent design departures favor the sporting side of the Mazda persona.

The latest CX-30 subcompact SUV, replacing the earlier quite popular CX-3, has a more competitive look, a bit larger, with a much leaner profile. This is a tech intensive sporty, utilitarian and stylish combo that really works.

The overall look is still distinctively Mazda, a relatively small company in the automotive pantheon which has been acclaimed by notable competitors and strategic partners for its really breakthrough design and engineering achievements.

For performance, Mazda is distinguished as a premiere club and pro competition nameplate, with more daily racing starts across the US than any other brand.

This new CX-30 leverages that acclaim with the celebrated mileage and power boosting Skyactiv®-G 2.5 Turbo 4 cylinder engine pumping 250 horsepower with 0 – 60 times of about 7 seconds. Combined with the companion AWD system the Mazda CX-30 is clearly performance enhanced for a top tier $30,000 price tag … about $7K more than the base CX-30.
