Will you be comparing it to anything else you might be test driving as well? Toyota? Honda? Nissan?

Cx30 ordered. GT sport in soul red. Arrives week beginning 6th January.
Could not justify the 'X' engine as the extra money is better spent on spec.
One thing I would of liked was the chrome roof trim ... But not available in the UK..
Roll on the new year...??

Tell me about it. I myself am going for a more budget friendly spec CX30.

Haven't decided yet but i'll post it here once I have!

Did you include any accessories/add-on's during the order process?

Hi, we stretched our budget to get the GT SPORT. so nearly top spec just missing 360 camera , driver awareness camera and forward cross crash detection thingy...but added the soul red paint as the only extra ..this worked for us.
the car came in at just under £28000. but haggled discount, free mat and fuel , but as we know nothning is free lol

uk spec attached.

I get miffed from time to time that we do not get some of the European choices. This time you guys get the short end of the stick. Either the unacceptably slow 2 liter or the unacceptably expensive sky x. Those engine options would be a deal killer for me. The 2.5 is barely adequate.
Were I over there, I would be looking at the better packaged, better looking, faster 1.6 Xceed, not available in the U.S. I do not need awd in Oklahoma.

I agree we have the sh*t end of the stick this time..but the drive and interior is Great. For our style of driving it suits us and the Mazda dealer is extremely good ..better than others we have used in the past.
