Picked up my Premium/Blue/Black/FWD CX-30 two days ago. All I can say is that it exceeds my expectations in every way. I drove a Lexus RX330 for 16 years and loved that car, but the CX-30 is so much more fun to drive. The back seat is definitely tight, but I am alone in the car 99% of the time and the other 1% of the time my wife is with me, so no big deal for me. The rear visibility is not great, but I removed the center headrest in back and that fixed the problem. What a great car!

My kids are grown and gone, so I don't need to haul around 4 or 5 people any more. 99% of the time in my vehicle it's just me or me and my wife. I wanted something a little more sporty than a Lexus RX, but I like SUVs/CUVs. The funny thing is that when I began considering replacing my RX I couldn't find what I really wanted -- a small SUV that was fun, sporty, reliable, fuel efficient, and a good value (i.e., not too expensive to buy and own). When the CX-30 was announced it was exactly what I had in mind and when I went to test drive it I liked it even more than I thought I would. Now that I've owned it for a little more than a week, I am totally in love with this vehicle. It is very well designed and a joy to drive. And after about 500 miles of driving, I am averaging 36.5 MPG. The only thing I wish it has is heated side mirrors, but that is a small sacrifice for an otherwise great vehicle.

Thank you for the tip about removing the rear seat headrests. I'll ask my wife if she thinks that will help her rear visibility. We've only had the car a few days and she hasn't complained but it definitely should help.

We added the rear tonneau cover and the rear cargo mat today and have the high wall floor mats, sunshade, and rear bumper protection applique on order.
