Hello Everyone, since last friday I'm the proud owner of a Jet Black Mica CX-30 (skyactive-X, FWD, automatic and all the options). So far it's been a smooth drive and I've really been enjoying the calming and luxurious interior. I'm interested to see what I can learn from these here forums.

Thanks everybody!

Welcome to the forum @Sloeberjong! What were you driving before the CX-30?
An Audi Q2. Pretty combarable in size and engine, but not in price or gadgets! I have no regrets so far. A small exception is the colour, my Audi was bright metallic orange and it really stood out. Personally I think it's a shame that Mazda offers no special colours. Except for red the colours are pretty "reserved" and even the red is very common for Mazda's (I get it, it's beautiful, a colleague drives a red CX-5). As for the colours, they look nice on the indiviual cars (I love my black CX-30), but I think the road looks better with more varied coloured cars filling it and I prefer to drive a bit more "excentric" coloured cars. Not that it's a big deal or anything, the black looks really classy, but it would be cool in a green or turquoise hue as well.

Oh, and I would prefer the Audi sport seats, but that's purely personal of course. The Mazda seats are good enough, but the Audi seats were better for me personally. I drove a lot before Corona (55k kms a year or so) so I'm critical about that stuff.

So far I'm almost 1500 kms in and I've disabled the LKA and I'm sometimes struggling with the ACC (that's not Mazda's fault, that's a general ACC thing I've heard from others). The ACC breaks pretty heavily when coming close to the next car. I just have to get used to it some more, otherwise it's a great cruising car. It's quiet, comfortable, more than quick enough, so yeah, I'm happy with it! I'm sure I'll have some good 140k kms to go (it's a company car).

It's true, Mazda really went the conservative route with the CX-30's colors. But you can't go wrong with black. I wonder if they did that because they weren't sure how it would sell. Maybe they'll start adding more colors for future versions.
