The 2020 Mazda CX-30 Hits The Los Angeles Auto Show

The all-new 2020 Mazda CX-30 made its North American debut today at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Part coupe, part SUV, the CX-30 is coming in to ride the wave of compact utility vehicles that keep gaining in popularity. Offered in GX, GS and GT trims, the CX-30 uses a four-cylinder Skyactiv-G 2.0L engine in its GX variant. It is paired with a Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission. This engine produces 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque.

As for the GS and GT trims, they are both powered by a four-cylinder Skyactiv-G 2.5 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This engine provides 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. GX and GS variants are available in both FWD and AWD configurations, whereas the GT model is only sold in AWD. The Mazda CX-30 is outfitted with G-Vectoring Control Plus.

Inside, the base CX-30 GX gets a standard 8.8-inch display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free, LED taillights, LED daytime running lights, a matte finish front grille and other goodies.

Going up to the CX-30 GT will add a Bose 12-speaker stereo, a windshield-projected Active Driving Display, leather seats, power liftgate and LED headlights and taillights, among other things.

Pricing Front-Wheel Drive GX starts at $23,950 and the AWD-only GT starts at $33,850.
