Say Hello to the Mazda CX-30
Mazda Motor Corporation debuted the brand-new Mazda CX-30 compact crossover at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. It’s got sporty styling, a roomy passenger area that can comfortably seat four adults, and 15.2 cubic feet of rear cargo space — enough for a stroller and a large bag.
A Stunning Debut: The Mazda CX-30
When designing this new model, Mazda laid out some ground rules. In typical perfectionistic Mazda fashion, the automaker is dedicated to having the CX-30 deliver on these four key points:
- The vehicle needs to be the perfect size for maximum versatility
- The design should embody the joy of owning something that suits your style
- The cabin ought to be spacious enough to share with friends and family
- The vehicle’s performance should offer comfort and peace of mind
True to these guidelines, the CX-30 is taller and roomier than the CX-3. And while the two models sport a similar profile, the CX-30 distinguishes itself with signature contouring on its side body panels.
In terms of function, the CX-30 is meant to fill the gap between the CX-3 and CX-5. Although you might expect it to be called the CX-4, there may be a reason why Mazda passed on naming it that — four is considered an unlucky number in Japanese culture.
Sleek and bold
This sporty new compact crossover combines the best aesthetic features of a car and an SUV. Its curves suggest the flowing proportions and sloping rear window of a coupe, while its bold black cladding gives it the handsome good looks of an SUV. But don’t just take our word for it — here’s a look at the new Mazda CX-30 in all its sleek and refined glory.
