First drive: 2020 Mazda CX-30 launch review
Tim Nicholson gets behind the wheel of Mazda’s latest SUV offering – the CX-30.
Mazda’s SUV line-up kicks off with the very compact CX-3 light SUV, but it’s a pretty big leap up to the next model in its arsenal – the family-focused mid-size CX-5. The Japanese car-maker has decided to fill that gap with the all-new CX-30, a small SUV that sits smack bang in the middle of the CX-3 and CX-5 dimensionally. Buyers might also consider other larger small SUVs like Australia’s Best Cars small SUVs under $40,000 - winning Kia Seltos, Nissan’s Qashqai, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross or the Honda HR-V. The CX-30 is similar in size to the Mazda3 hatch but has a higher ride height, more boot space and a slightly different take on Mazda’s ‘Kodo’ design language.
