Is the 2020 Mazda CX-30 Leading its Class?


The 2020 Mazda CX-30 is playing its role well as a small crossover that is rightly sized and has enough feature count to carry out all the purposes of a crossover with dignity. It is not only its good looks that might have given the 2020 Mazda CX-30 an extra edge over its competitors, but also its fun to drive dynamics that attracted a large number of buyers who are also good drivers.

Who it Competes With

From a known source from the Phoenix Mazda dealership, we got to know that the 2020 Mazda CX-30, has given the Subaru Crosstrek and Honda HR-V a tougher challenge, which share almost the same specs as the Mazda crossover this year.

Design Inspirations

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 though named after its older sibling CX-3 has very little to share in common. Rather it has adopted many attributes from the 3 series of Mazda, especially in the exterior design format. The rear end of the 2020 CX-30 measures a few inch shorter than the Mazda 3 series hatchbacks. It has also removed the rear roof pillar that causes some hindrance to the outward visibility in the Mazda 3. The 2020 CX-30 on the contrary stands with a little more height to achieve about 8.0 inches of ground clearance, and that’s a clear sign of conforming to its crossover pedigree, that anybody will appreciate.

Convenient and Comfortable to Ride

Carrying out its duties as a crossover, the 2020 Mazda CX-30 provides more than enough space for each of the passengers in its comfort zone. The interior cabin of the 2020 Mazda CX-30 creates an instant connection with the passengers with its choice of good quality materials that are wisely spread and used in the intuitively laid out interior. Rides in the 2020 Mazda CX-30 is both comfortable and convenient because of the active noise cancellation system that keeps the interior cabin much more calm and quiet than most of its close competitors while its 8.8-inch center infotainment display keeps the passengers entertained throughout the journeys.

Pleasure to Drive

If the 2020 Mazda CX-30 is a good crossover to ride, it is a better crossover to drive. It’s fun to drive mechanisms include the 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that provides 182 horsepower usually to the rear wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. This is the standard powertrain found across the entire range of the 2020 Mazda CX-30. There’s no reason to undermine the drive capacity of the CX-30, just because it is smaller in size. Rather the engine engaged for this small crossover is the clever trick played by the manufacturer to make it rev more willingly while that also takes good care of the curb weight around the hairpin turns.

From the test drivers we met at the showroom premise of the Mazda Phoenix dealership, we came to know, how responsive are the steering and the brakes, as they almost listened to the driver’s inputs intuitionally. With all this we could conclude without a doubt that the 2020 Mazda CX-30 is leading its class so far in many aspects.
