The new Mazda CX-30 was launched earlier this year and almost immediately, we were treated to a drive up to Bukit Tinggi on a day trip for a quick review. The Mazda CX-30 is a bit of an interesting propositon; it sits between the CX-3 and CX-5 but is priced somewhere between the CX-5 and CX-8.

At launch, the CX-30 was introduced with three variants; a 2.0G, 2.0G High as well as a diesel-powered 1.8D High. In May of this year, Bermaz Motor, distributors of Mazda vehicles in Malaysia, added another variant – a 2.0-litre High AWD variant that sits right at the top of the CX-30 range.

Aside from that, Mazda also added a few more features to the base model 2.0G variant. They include keyless entry and walk away lock feature for a more “atas” feel to the overall ownership experience.

To recap, the front wheel driven 2.0G base model and 2.0G High along with the highest spec 2.0G High AWD is powered by the same 2.0-litre engine with 162 hp and 213 Nm. As for the 1.8-litre SkyActiv-D turbodiesel engine, that makes 114 hp and a healthy dose of 270 Nm.

Following the Sales Tax Exemption, here’s the latest price of the CX-30 we reviewed and other Mazda vehicle’s in Malaysia.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
