All-new Mazda CX-30 SUV: Pricing and specs revealed
Slotting between the CX-3 and CX-5, Mazda has announced the pricing and specification of its new CX-30 compact SUV.
Priced from £22,895 for the Skyactiv-G SE-L manual, up to £33,495 for the range topping 177hp Skyactiv-X GT Sport Tech, the Mazda CX-30 range will arrive in UK dealers in January 2020.
With ‘Sleek and Bold’ as its design concept, the Mazda CX-30’s styling follows current trends in combining a coupe styling and the bold practicality of an SUV.
At 4,395 mm long, 1,795 mm wide, 1,540 mm high and with a 2,655 mm wheelbase, the Mazda CX-30 will be built on the same Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture as the recently revealed Mazda 3 and enters a new market segment for the company.
Available in five trim levels – SE-L, SE-L Lux, Sport Lux, GT Sport and GT Sport Tech - the new CX-30 features generous standard equipment across the entire range, with 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.
Entry-level SE-L trim (£22,895) also comes with 16in alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, electrically adjustable wing mirrors, chrome exhaust tips and automatic windscreen wipers.
Moving up to the SE-L Lux trim, available from £24,195, front parking sensors, heated front seats, a reversing camera and electrically assisted boot are added to the kit. Sport Lux (£25,295) includes 18in alloy wheels, a black front grille and adaptive LED headlights.
At the top of the range, GT Sport (£27,095) and GT Sport Tech (£27,995) add automatically tilting wing mirrors, black leather interior, heated steering wheel and 360 degree camera to the mix.
The CX-30 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 Mazda 3, the 120hp 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.
The powertrain line-up will also include the company'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.
Additionally from Sport Lux upwards, the Skyactiv-X CX-30 is available with Mazda’s latest advanced i-Activ all-wheel drive system to promote an even more engaging driving experience.
The interior has been designed to combine a snug, focused driver's cockpit area with a clean, airy and open cabin space for passengers. Newly developed technologies such as 8-speaker Mazda or 12-speaker Bose audio systems have been carefully integrated with premium materials to create an interior ambience of high quality and genuine refinement.
An 8.8in wide-screen infotainment is angled toward the driver and will offer an intuitive guidance system for simplified operation.
Commenting on the new Mazda CX-30, Jeremy Thomson, managing director of Mazda UK, said: “We’re very excited about this stunning compact SUV joining our range. This sector of the market is hugely competitive and vibrant in the UK, and we now have a class-leading contender that slots perfectly into the space between the CX-3 and CX-5.”
