The all-new Mazda 3 is arguably one of the prettier cars we’ve seen in recent years and now, the company has taken that design language and penned a new compact crossover, the Mazda CX-30.
Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS), the CX-30 is not a concept car (although it does look like one) and is scheduled to roll out to global markets later in the year. It is an all-new model in Mazda’s new-generation line up of cars and slots in-between the current CX-3 and CX-5.
It rides on the same platform as the Mazda 3 and measures 4,395 mm in length, 1,795 mm in width, 1,540 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,655 mm. Dimensions of the CX-30 are closer to the CX-3 than it is to the CX-5.
Mazda promises that the CX-30 has a user-friendly packaging that can comfortably seat four adults on long journeys – a task that the CX-3 couldn’t really manage. The SkyActiv-Vehicle Architecture have also been enhanced for better sense of Jinba Ittai (horse and rider as one).
Technical details of the new CX-30 is scarce but Mazda claims that it will be available with the latest range of SkyActiv engines including the yet-to-be-launched SkyActiv-X petrol engine.
