A slightly different name and a significantly improved product.
Verdict 6.7 / 10
If you scratched your head at the purpose of the Mazda CX-30, you aren’t alone. Not only did this subcompact crossover break away from Mazda’s established crossover nomenclature – the letters “CX” and a single digit – it arrives in a segment where Mazda is already well established with the CX-3.
But after a week behind the wheel, it turns out adding a zero changes the equation entirely. The CX-30 still suffers from some of the same ills as the similar CX-3, but it’s more powerful, features a cleaner interior design, a marginally better infotainment system, and wears a more grown-up design. It’s pricey, though, and that makes it a tough choice in this segment.
