The 2021 Mazda CX-30 largely unchanged compared to 2020 model.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now standard in the United States.
Automatic on/off headlights and rain-sensing wipers now standard in Canada.
The Japanese brand’s newest family member is off to a good start this year, trailing only behind the popular Mazda CX-5 on the sales charts in the United States and Canada, and actually outselling the Mazda3 in the U.S. A few changes have just been announced for the 2021 Mazda CX-30.
Although the trim level structure is unchanged, the crossover is oddly renamed CX-30 2.5 S in the United States, while the Select, Preferred and Premium packages remain. In Canada, the vehicle is once again available in GX, GS and GT trims. Competitors include the Kia Seltos, the Chevrolet Trailblazer, the Buick Encore GX, the Ford EcoSport, the Nissan Rogue Sport/Qashqai, the Subaru Crosstrek and the Honda HR-V, among others.
The 2021 Mazda CX-30 is equipped with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that develops 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque, managed by a six-speed automatic that feeds power to the front or all four wheels. However, the Canadian-market CX-30 GX offers the brand’s 2.0L four that produces 155 hp and 150 lb.-ft.
In the U.S., the CX-30 now includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration across the board, a feature that was previously unavailable in the base trim level. CarPlay and AA were already standard on every model sold in Canada.
Meanwhile, automatic on/off headlights as well as rain-sensing windshield wipers are now standard for the Canadian-market 2021 Mazda CX-30. These items weren’t offered on the previous model year GX, but were included on every CX-30 sold in the United States.
Other available comfort and convenience features include a power sunroof, a power tailgate, a Bose 12-speaker sound system, navigation, dual-zone climate control, a proximity key, head-up display, leather upholstery, a power driver’s seat and a heated steering wheel. Advanced driving assist systems including adaptive cruise control with stop & go function, high-speed emergency autonomous braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring are all offered as well.
