After months of teasing, Bermaz Auto has finally launched the all-new Mazda CX-30 on our shores. The Mazda CX-30 is a brand-new product from the Japanese brand, sitting between the CX-3 and CX-5 in the sizing chart.

At launch, the Mazda CX-30 will be available in three variants – 2.0G, 2.0G HIGH, as well as a diesel-powered 1.8D HIGH, with prices starting from RM143,059.

EXTERIOR

The Mazda CX-30 is the second model in the brand’s new-generation product line-up to feature the latest evolution of the Kodo design concept, after the Mazda 3.

Based on the concept of “Sleek and Bold”, the CX-30 is designed to combine the toughness of an SUV, with supple and flowing body lines.

Just like the Mazda 3, the CX-30 also utilises the curved body panels for the “interplay between light and shadow”, although there is a more apparent character line along the side on the CX-30.

Exterior features of the all-new Mazda CX-30 include:
– Full LED headlights and taillights
– slim integrated LED daytime running lights design (entry-level variant gets bulb DRLs)
– all-round black plastic cladding
– 18-inch alloy wheels (entry-level variant gets 16-inch items)
– Dual exhaust tailpipes

The High and diesel variants get some additional goodies, including keyless entry, powered sunroof with sliding and tilt glass, front and rear Signature Illumination lighting graphics, as well as a powered tailgate.

INTERIOR

The cabin of the Mazda CX-30 is seemingly lifted from the Mazda 3. As standard, all variants get a 8.8-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, reverse camera with guide lines, as well as voice command, paired to eight speakers.

Also standard is the new instrument cluster design, featuring a seven-inch TFT LCD display in the centre, flanked by analog dials at the side. All variants also get a coloured heads-up display. 

Sitting in between the CX-3 and CX-5, the all-new Mazda CX-30 also comes with a slightly roomier interior space, as well as a larger boot, coming in at 430 litres – 80 litres more than the CX-3.

In terms of kit, the entry-level 2.0G variant is equipped with fabric seats with manual adjustments, and manual air-conditioning. The two higher-specification models come included with:
– Black leather upholstery
– 10-way power adjustable driver seats with memory function
– Paddle shifters
– Dual-zone automatic air-conditioning
– Rear air-conditioning vents
– Auto-dimming rear-view mirrors

POWERTRAIN

The CX-30 is available with two powertrain options. The 2.0G and 2.0G High variants get a SkyActiv-G 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, generating 162 hp and 213 Nm of torque. 

As for the diesel variant, a 1.8-litre SkyActiv-D turbodiesel engine pushes out 114 hp and 270 Nm of torque.

Both engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode, with power sent to the front wheels.

Mazda has equipped the CX-30 with a generous amount of safety features. As standard, all variants get:
– seven airbags
– ABS with EBD
– Emergency Brake Assist
– Traction Control System
– Emergency stop signal
