Colin-on-Cars – Mazda adds compact SUV to its range

Mazda Southern Africa has slotted a new derivative SUV into its line up – the CX-30 fitting between the CX-3 and CX-5.

This new compact is the second model in Mazda’s next generation line-up. Combining the proportions of an SUV with the profile of a coupé, its styling is an evolution of Mazda’s KODO design philosophy.  

The model line-up consists of three derivatives, offered in front-wheel drive (FWD) and automatic transmission: Active, Dynamic and Individual.

The Mazda CX-30 range will be powered by a 2,0-litre SKYACTIV-G engine, which puts out 121 kW of power (at 6 000 r/min) and 213 Nm of torque (at 4 000 r/min).

Every car across the range comes standard with LED Headlamps with auto levelling, driver, passenger, knee (Driver), side and curtain crash bags, Head-Up Display (HUD), MZD Connect infotainment system with an 8,8-Inch Display Screen, Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

The Mazda CX-30 offers a choice of nine exterior colours. Active and Dynamic grades feature 16-inch grey metallic alloy wheels, whereas the Individual grade features 18-inch silver metallic alloy wheels.

The Active and Dynamic grades have a dark grey cloth seat trim with black and navy blue accents on the dashboard. The Dynamic grade will be available with an optional greige cloth seat trim. The Individual is equipped with black perforated leather seats and will feature black and brown accents on the dashboard.

Craig Roberts, Managing Director Mazda Southern Africa says: “We are excited we are now able to offer our customers this superb new contender in the compact SUV category.
