Its official The Mazda CX-30 will be introduced to the South African market in February 2021. This comes after plans to bring the car to the local market in the first quarter of 2020 fell through following the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CX-30 range consists of three derivatives, Active, Dynamic, and Individual which are all offered in front-wheel drive and automatic transmission configurations. Every variant in the line-up will be powered by Mazda’s 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine, which produces a peak output of 121kW and 213Nm.
The CX-30 offers more legroom and boot space than the CX-3 but still has a very sleek/compact SUV appearance. The Mazda CX-30 is 120mm longer than the Mazda 3 but is the same height as the CX-3, offering a more spacious interior than the Mazda 3 sedan.
Over the past eight years, Mazda has excelled at building solid and uncluttered interior cabins, and the CX-30 is a prime example of this. The CX-30 has a similar design to the Mazda 3 but is noticeably bigger and slightly more refined. Even though the CX-30 is technically a compact SUV, the driving position feels sporty and well-built with a very modern, yet simplistic design.
Soft-touch materials are placed in all the correct spots that your legs, arms and hands come in touch with. ISO fix child anchor points are standard on the CX-30’s rear seats, 430 litres of boot space is the capacity the CX-30 has to offer and it’s plenty for a small family. The range is sold with a standard 3-year/unlimited kilometre service plan, 3-year factory warranty, 3-year roadside assistance, and 5-year corrosion warranty.
The Mazda CX-30 has plenty to offer as a small family vehicle, the ride quality and build quality are incomparable with other compact SUVs in its category. The new CX-30 is almost guaranteed to be one of the best-selling SUVs in South Africa for 2021.
