New 2020 Mazda CX-30 Revealed At The Geneva Motor Show

The new CX-30 will be become a core model among Mazda’s increasingly SUV line-up. If we’re to believe Mazda, it won’t be like the others.


While we may talk about other manufacturers and their SUV-laden product portfolio, Mazda is well on its way to offering only the compact Mazda3 and fabulous MX-5 in North America. The new Mazda CX-30 blends Mazda’s Kodo design language with the utilitarian styling of an SUV and the result is nothing short of exceptional.

Mazda’s goal with the new 2020 CX-30 was to “create a car that would enrich customers’ lives by helping them and their loved ones make new and stimulating discoveries within their daily lives.” We’re not entirely sure what this means but the CX-30 was designed to accommodate four adult occupants in comfort and hold a fair amount of gear in the boot.

In true Mazda form, the CX-30 was also conceived for the driver and be easy to drive. The CX-30 is built upon Mazda’s latest SKYACTIV Vehicle Architecture and will feature the latest SKYACTIV engines, including SKYACTIV-X compression-ignition engine technology.

That means we can expect to see the 2.0-liter developing 155 horsepower and the 2.5-liter developing 186 horsepower. The SKYACTIV-X specs haven’t been confirmed yet, but expect roughly 178 horsepower. The new CX-30 also gets Mazda’s mild 24-volt hybrid system to help reduce fuel economy by using electricity to power various functions of the car.

Mazda’s i-ACTIV all-wheel drive system will be available. A six-speed manual will be standard with a six-speed automatic being optional.

Size-wise, it looks as though it will take on the Nissan Qashqai and Toyota C-HR but will have the advantage of Mazda’s far more upscale looking designs. Think new Mazda3 sedan compared to just about any other compact sedan.
