Lost in all the news of the fancy supercars debuting at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show is the reveal of a new Mazda crossover. Called the Mazda CX-30, this all-new vehicle will sit between the CX-3 subcompact crossover and CX-5 compact crossover.
Simply put, this is a new crossover based on the Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture that underpins the latest Mazda3. It’s bigger than the CX-3 yet smaller than the CX-5, offering just enough space for four adults in a stylish package. With sleek, uninterrupted lines, the new Mazda CX-30 certainly has a clean design, but the body cladding surrounding the wheel arches may seem a bit excessive, making the wheels look relatively small. The Mazda CX-30 will be offered with nine paint finishes including Soul Red Crystal, Machine Gray, and Polymetal Gray, which was originally developed for the new Mazda3.
The interior seems upscale and attractive, with a high-end layout that’s centered around driver engagement. Everything is oriented towards the driver, and you’ll find fancy stitching on a dash, giving the CX-30 a premium flair. There are two special interior color schemes available, one with dark brown accents that are combined with leather interior, and a blue accented interior that is fitted with cloth or leatherette upholstery.
