Besides the 4 traditional jacking points by each wheel, I was unable to locate a designated front and back jacking point. The goal is to lift both front or back wheels off the ground vs each individual wheel. Has anyone tried doing this or know what can be used as central jacking points?

I haven’t checked but there should be center jacking points.
The Mazda’s my brother has owned, had them.

There is one in the front... I saw it on a Mazda Guru video. Not sure of the exact location was a while ago. They did not mention one in the rear which I found upsetting. I am not recommending or going to try... but I assume you could use the rear diff maybe? Have seen many car people jack up the rear with the differential.

The images on this look cutoff. Can you take a look and repost or publish the link where you got this?

I found the front jacking point and it's quite far back, but there isn't a designated one for the rear that I can see. I was trying to avoid lifting each wheel for the winter tires swap but I guess that might be the most straightforward option. I'd recommend a pinch weld protector if using a floor jack so as not to bend any metal.

The PDF does not specify for the CX-30 but it looks close enough. And according to this you CAN use the rear differential as a jacking point. Great information to know. Thanks PeterK.

My Quick Lift works well on my CX30----lifts all 4 wheels simultaneously----just the things for oil/filter and tire rotation.

Unless I am missing it, this PDF does not even specify that it is a Mazda vehicle. Seems a bit risky to reference without verification.

One thing tho ... Careful not to cause a hairline crack on the differential casing... Iv seen it happen before in my days as a service advisor.. Mazda's i-active AWD differential only has a styrofoam cup worth of fluid in it .. not much and it leaked out on this clients CX 5 and fried it.. just a thing to watch out for 😊 it's made from aluminum and not thick as say found in a 4x4 truck.
