I read somewhere that the CX-30 was made in Japan only, but mine was made in Mexico. How about yours?

Salamanca is Mazda’s first production facility outside Japan and was chosen because Mexico has commercial agreements with 45 countries, plus and a suitable location from which to send vehicles to Central and South America, Europe, the United States and Canada.

In Australia they are made in Thailand which at first I thought “ no way “ until I investigated the manufacturing plant and l can assure you made in Thailand is fine and they have a huge car building industry with quality cars being built, Australia no longer has a car industry and we have no choice, l personally would have preferred made in Japan but some models from Japan have had more recalls than Thailand

Mine is also Mexican - to be honest, this circumstance worries me a lot.
Bought in Europe.

My '20 3 hatch was assembled in Japan, but it was not without some as delivered quality issues. Not as solid or well made as my '17 CX5 ( also Japan made).

My Aussie one is made in Japan. I bought a Japanese car so I'd like it made in Japan.

I haven't checked, but I would assume Singapore CX-30s are made in Thailand, since they can easily road-car them over the borders

You'd better double-check. Despite sharing borders with Thailand, Malaysian CX-30s are made in Japan and are consequently more expensive than the CX-5, which is locally assembled.

Mine is from Mexico, but the interesting thing was that I got to choose whether I wanted one from Japan or Mexico. Having considered Kia Xceed as the other option and disliked it because of the obvious very low build quality for the part of Europe where I reside (you can tell by the videos of the same model elsewhere in Europe) I opted for Mexico. The reasoning was that they probably have the same quality control as for the North America and I should be fine. We will see whether I outplayed myself 🤣

Where is the Kia made?
