Mazda CX30

Mazda’s new SUV, sits between the CX-3 and CX-5 for size. (Why is it not called the CX-4? The number 4 is considered unlucky in Japan) Powered by their excellent turboless 2.0 litre petrol front wheel drive engine producing 120bhp (badged Skyactiv-G) or 178bhp (Skyactiv-X). The larger engine delivering improved fuel economy, 47.7 combined mpg compared to 45.6 for the lower powered car and an improved 0-62 time of 9.0 seconds compared to 10.2 seconds, The CX30 also incorporates a mild hybrid system but it is so mild Mazda do not make reference to it in their literature. Trim lines are SE-L , SE-L Lux, Sport Lux and GT Sport. Even the entry level car has 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, rear parking sensors, a head-up display, air-conditioning, adaptive cruise control and an 8.8-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, SE-L Lux adds adds front parking sensors, electric tailgate, reversing camera, heated front seats and keyless entry.
