The CX-30 is capable of 53.3 mpgs according to early reports of the 2.0-liter gasoline engine version.

According to Mazda what we can expect is "diesel-like fuel economy" thanks to their use of innovative technology found in the two engine options available at launch: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed automatic transmission, or a 2.0-liter four with either an automatic or a six-speed manual! Those engine options were confirmed in a CARB (California Air Resources Board) document that you can find attached below.

Also quoted from Mazda are these important expectations of both engines:
  • "The latest Skyactiv-G 2.0 gasoline engine delivers enhanced driving performance, fuel efficiency and eco-friendliness. It adopts a cylinder deactivation system that shuts down cylinders 1 and 4 in light-load situations such as constant-speed cruising. This contributes to greatly reduced pumping loss and lowered mechanical resistance."
  • "The new Skyactiv-X engine features Mazda’s innovative Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) combustion to bring compression ignition to a gasoline engine. As a result, it features both the superior initial response and powerful torque of diesel engines, as well as the linear response to even sudden driver inputs and the smooth revving up to the higher rpms typical of a gasoline engine."
  • "The Skyactiv-G 2.0 and Skyactiv-X engines are equipped with Mazda’s M Hybrid system for both greater gains in fuel economy, and higher levels of driving pleasure and real-world environmental friendliness."
And if you're concerned about how optioning for i-ACTIV AWD might impact your range, it wont:
  • "Thanks to a newly developed control system and new technologies to reduce friction, i-Activ AWD delivers a refined and stable ride in any situation and real-world fuel economy almost as good as a front-wheel drive vehicle."
Where the CX-30's mpg rating starts to drop off will be with the manual transmission, as is the case with most vehicles these days.

Once real-world fuel consumption numbers are available, what should we expect?

official CX-30 fuel economy numbers are in and its much more realistic but still VERY good for a ICE setup

Fuel Economy - EPA-estimated MPG (city/highway)
SKYACTIV-G 2.5L
  • FWD: 25/33 mpg
  • AWD: 24/31 mpg
SKYACTIV-G 2.5L with CDA:
  • FWD: 25/33 mpg
  • AWD: 25/32 mpg
Still, i'm interested in seeing what real world mpg numbers are like. EPA MPG rating is reliable but nothing beats actual testing under conditions we'll be throwing it at on a daily basis.

Also to note is the fuel tank capacity.

Fuel Tank Capacity
  • FWD: 13.5 U.S. gallons
  • RWD: 12.7 U.S. gallons

Agreed, a very solid fuel economy rating! Now all that's left is to see what averages people are getting when it comes out.
