Earlier in March this year, images of a slide showing the potential price increase of several Mazda models surfaced on social media, and one of the model price increases has become a reality. The 2023 Mazda CX-30 is now RM3,300 more expensive across the range, with a new starting price of RM131,409.
The new prices of the 4 Mazda CX-30 variants are now as such with the RM3,300 price increase for all variants (prices listed are OTR without insurance):
- CX-30 2.0 G 2WD Standard – RM131,409
- CX-30 2.0 G High – RM139,409
- CX-30 2.0G High+ – RM149,409
- CX-30 2.0G High+ Premium – RM159,409
Specification-wise, things remain unchanged for the locally assembled (CKD) Mazda CX-30 which was launched in March this year. During the launch of the CKD CX-30, the diesel and all-wheel drive (AWD) variants were dropped from the lineup. Naturally, the price of the CX-30 dropped significantly by becoming a CKD model, but now prices have gone up slightly.
All 4 variants of the Mazda CX-30 are powered by the same 2.0-litre naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine that outputs a maximum power of 162 hp and a maximum torque of 213 Nm. The transmission in use is a 6-speed automatic and all variants are front-wheel drive (FWD). The CX-30 has a fuel tank capacity of 51 litres and a rated fuel efficiency of 6.4 l/100km.
The unchanged specifications mean we have yet to receive the updated version of the Mazda CX-30 which has just been introduced. The updated Mazda CX-30 gets a new 10.25-inch touchscreen head unit, 2 new colour options, and several other improvements. You can read all about that here.
Premium colour options and warranty packages also remain the same for the Malaysian-spec 2023 Mazda CX-30. It would still cost you an additional RM2,000 for premium body colours and the CX-30 comes with a 5-year/100,000 km manufacturer warranty and a 5-year/100,000 km free maintenance package.
