The compact SUV encompasses the Mazda ownership experience, fusing uniquely elegant Kodo styling with human-centric interior design and Jinba Ittai driving pleasure of unrivaled quality.
The new Mazda CX-30 showcases a more mature Kodo design language which retains vitality but now targets greater styling prestige through the elegantly minimalist aesthetic inspired by the purest traditions of Japanese art and the beauty of space between objects. The Mazda CX-30 enters a new market segment for Mazda with dimensions of: 4,395 mm long, 1,795 mm wide, 1,540 mm high and with a 2,655 mm wheelbase. Positioned between the CX-3 and the long-established CX-5, it fulfils the requirements of customers who wish to combine the compact, urban-friendly dimensions of the former with the space and practicality of the latter.
The human-centric interior design combines 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 combined with premium materials and comfortable fit and finish to create a high quality interior ambience and genuine refinement.
The new compact SUV features Mazda’s new-generation Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, which harnesses people’s inherent balance ability. In conjunction with smart technologies such as an evolved i-Activ all-wheel-drive (AWD) system which works in harmony with G-Vectoring Control (GVC) to control torque distribution between the front and rear wheels, this promotes an even more engaging Jinba Ittai driving experience.The powertrain line-up showcases the latest Skyactiv engines, including 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.Lastly, the Mazda CX-30’s comprehensive suite of i-Activsense active safety features now includes a newly added Driver Monitoring system, equipping the compact SUV with a further evolved capacity to provide all occupants with a safe, secure and enjoyable driving experience.
Since the introduction in 2010, Mazda’s Kodo – Soul of Motion design has been a driving force the brand's global success, and Mazda has now made this philosophy deeper and more sophisticated to raise car design to the level of fine art. The goal for this evolution of Kodo design is to express a new form of elegance inspired by and rooted in traditional Japanese aesthetics. The Mazda Vision Coupe concept model introduced in 2017 embodied this design language through finely honed, minimalist styling: its elegantly restrained body form generated a delicate play of light and reflections that change over time to create styling with a natural, dynamic feel. The new Mazda CX-30 is the second production model to adopt this latest evolution of the Kodo design philosophy. The honing every element according to the ‘less is more’ principle has created unprecedentedly clean, beautiful surfaces and brought an entirely original form to the compact crossover SUV segment.
Painstaking attention has been paid to every detail, from choice of materials to improved fit and finish, to create a genuinely refined, premium quality interior space.
