It's odd and a little aggravating to me that Mazda doesn't include heated side mirrors on any trim level of the CX-30. In cold climates, this is pretty important and it seems to me that the cost, at least for the upper trims, would have been negligible. Does anyone know why Mazda would exclude them? They do offer them on the upper trims of the CX-5 and (I presume) the CX-9. Not sure about the CX-3.

Heated side mirrors are standard in Canada on the GS and GT (midline and top of line models)

That's odd that they wouldn't have the heated mirrors on any of the trim levels for the American versions

Agreed, particular because it just can't be that expensive. It'll be interesting to see if they add it in 2021 or later, and also whether there will be any after-market options to have it installed. It's a small thing, but when you need it you need it.

I also thought it was odd that it's not included in any of the US models. I'm guessing they leave out some basic features like this so they have something to add as an improvement to next year's model.

Heated mirrors on every trim here in the UK and tilt down on all but the basic model. Strange how the manufacturer decides what should be standard in certain countries. With my 2019 Lexus ES Takumi we get standard auto folding door mirrors (probably standard on every UK Lexus model) but the US doesn’t get them. Why not?

I was shocked to discover my CX-30 premium AWD didn’t have heated mirrors. It’s also odd that Mazda removed the heating steering wheel, wiper de-icer, 360 camera and power folding exterior mirrors from the US CX-30’s. I would have no problem paying extra for those features.

Chances are if Mazda follows its own tradition there will be a premium RESERVE version in 2021 that will include all these features at a hefty price increase.

I am UK based went for a test drive in a CX 30 and even the salesman could not find the switch to heat the mirrors.

Are they linked to the heated rear screen by any chance?

That’s how it is with every car I’ve ever driven. The heated mirrors are always linked to the heated rear window button. The CX-30s heated elements in the windscreen is also linked to the rear window button.

Had my papers ready to go when I discovered the same thing. Here in Michigan I agree bad safety issue. Freezing rain will form ice on those mirrors and make it impossible to change lanes. I very disappointedly canceled my order ..and will buy a seltos instead..almost like they purposely hoped you would miss that for them to save a few hundred bucks. Too bad loved this car.

Too bad, your lost. The Seltos is an Inferiority car IMHO, tested both and the CX-30 wins hands down.

:The CX-30 has standard Whiplash-Reducing Headrests.The Seltos doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

:The CX-30’s 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder produces 40 more horsepower (186 vs. 146) and 54 lbs.-ft. more torque (186 vs. 132) than the Seltos’ standard 2.0 DOHC 4-cylinder. The CX-30’s 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder produces 11 more horsepower (186 vs. 175) than the Seltos S 1.6T/SX’s standard 1.6 turbo 4-cylinder.

:The CX-30 has engine speed sensitive variable-assist power steering, for low-effort parking, better control at highway speeds and during hard cornering, and a better feel of the road. The Seltos doesn’t offer variable-assist power steering.

:The CX-30’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Seltos’ manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

:The CX-30 Select/Preferred/Premium’s standard dual zone air-conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. The Seltos doesn’t offer dual zone air-conditioning

:When two different drivers share the CX-30 Preferred/Premium, the memory seats and mirrors make it convenient for both. Each keyless remote activates different, customized memories for the driver’s seat position and outside mirror angle. The Seltos doesn’t offer a memory system.

:When the CX-30 Preferred/Premium is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Seltos’ mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

Hard to understand why US doesn’t get heated mirrors , in Australia we get all the bells and whistles on top level cx30 plus a choice of 2 or 2.5 ltr engine

Please amend your comparison to cx30 premium to Seltos Sx Turbo ..much closer race..sx has wireless charging and bigger screen along with. A heck of a bigger trunk and better site lines along with fog lights missing on cx30. Cx30 does have power liftgate and I agree nicer cockpit along with sunroof.. But im in michigan would trade sunroof for heated side mirrors. I think in real world southern car Mazda way better up north not so much. Oh yea if you lease Mazda has eliminated what used to be 1000 wear care protection on a new lease where as Kia still offers 500 . Mazda wins over miles though at .15 cents vs .20 for Kia. Oh not to forget seltos sx comes with full nav and cx 30 Costs another 395 for nav SD card. The race is much tighter then you suggest not to mention Kia almost double bumper to bumper warranty at 60k vs 36k ..what else am I missing..o aesthetic are subjective but I do give the nod to cx30 but way more rear seat room and comfort in seltos also. Thank you looking forward to rebuttal
