Mazda CX-30 buying guide

What Mazda CX-30 trim levels are there?

Opening the range is SE-L trim, but it’s still very well equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights with auto high-beam assist, adaptive cruise control and rear parking sensors. You also get an 8.8-inch media screen with sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SE-L Lux adds a reversing camera, two-zone air con, keyless entry and heated front seats.

Sport Lux adds 18-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, a powered tailgate and tinted rear windows. GT Sport gets all this plus leather upholstery, a Bose sound system, an electric driver’s seat and a heated steering wheel. Top-spec GT Sport Tech brings extra active safety features.

The 100th Anniversary special edition is limited to 100 UK cars. It gets pearlescent white paint, burgundy leather upholstery and unique badging.

Mazda CX-30 interior and technology

You’re probably thinking that the touchscreen looks really far away. Well, worry not, because it’s not touch-controlled – instead, you control it by using the rotary dial between the front seats. The idea is that you don’t have to take your eyes off the road for so long. And you don’t get smudgey fingerprint marks all over the screen. The infotainment system itself looks really crisp, and has all the features you’d expect.

It’s not a stretch to say that the CX-30 feels like a Japanese BMW inside. The quality is there, with all the materials feeling luxurious and built to last. It’s just as intuitive, as well, with physical controls for nearly everything. It doesn’t feel button-heavy, though, even if there are 18 buttons on the steering wheel alone.

Mazda CX-30 engine range explained

(Most popular) Mazda CX-30 2.0 Skyactiv-G petrol

Mazda’s entry-level 2.0-litre petrol produces 122hp. It favours a relaxed driving style, and on light throttle will shut down half its cylinders to save fuel. The upshot of this system, and its mild-hybrid tech, is that the Skyactiv-G engine returns up to 48mpg – pretty good for a petrol SUV.

Mazda CX-30 2.0 Skyactiv-X petrol

By looking at its diesel engines, Mazda has created a very clever petrol engine that it calls Skyactiv-X. This engine has a very high compression ratio and is surprisingly efficient, offering up to 50mpg if you choose a two-wheel-drive car with a manual gearbox. Yet it’s noticeably more sprightly off the line than the 122hp engine. As is often the case, four-wheel-drive cars will cost slightly more to run than two-wheel-drive ones.

Your Mazda CX-30 questions answered

Replacing the quirky but cramped Mazda CX-3, the CX-30 is a five-door, five-seat crossover based on the Mazda 3 hatchback. It gets chunky black cladding for that SUV style, fused with Mazda’s slim headlights, large grille and body curves that play on light and shade (so says Mazda). The brand also says its design is inspired by “the purest traditions of Japanese art”.

The Mazda CX-30 is a similar length to the SEAT Ateca, at just shy of 4.4 metres long. It’s a little shorter than cars like the Volkswagen Tiguan and Vauxhall Grandland X, and not as practical. The CX-30 is unashamedly style-led, but it’s still more practical than the Mazda 3 and much more spacious than the CX-3. Its 430-litre boot space exactly matches the 2008, Formentor and even the Range Rover Evoque. Rear-seat space is decent, with only really tall people likely to feel cramped.

The CX-30’s engine range is pretty straightforward. There are two versions of a 2.0-litre petrol engine, with both offering either a manual or automatic gearbox. Most CX-30s are front-wheel drive (like its rivals), but you might find examples of the higher-powered engine with all-wheel drive. Both are good engines, but the Skyactiv-X engine has more power and doesn't sacrifice fuel economy.

The Mazda CX-30 is available in nine colours, with Arctic White being the 'free' colour. This is a solid finish, while a selection of metallic paints are available for extra cost if you're ordering a brand-new car – called Snowflake White, Platinum Quartz, Sonic Silver, Polymetal Grey, Deep Crystal Blue, Jet Black, Machine Grey and Soul Red Crystal. The last two are Mazda's 'special' colours and cost a bit extra – but we think they're worth it.

Yes, the Mazda CX-30 is a pretty talented medium-size SUV. It's stylish, drives really nicely, has a premium interior with a driver-centric focus and is practical enough to consider it as a family car.

All Mazda CX-30s have a maximum towing capacity of 1,300kg, meaning a small caravan is manageable. You'll need to look at the larger Mazda CX-5 if you've got a bigger caravan – the CX-5 can tow up to 2,000kg.

Mazda has a fantastic reputation for reliability, and its Skyactiv-G petrol engine is known for its durability, so the CX-30 shouldn't cause you any headaches whatsoever. Extra peace of mind should come with the fact that the CX-30 is one of the safest SUVs on sale.
