Mazda’s new CX-30 compact SUV costs from €29,495 to as much as €43,115. The new motor has just arrived in showrooms.
Obviously a 2020 purchase, potential buyers have time to browse and choose. The company says there are 26 different versions in the range – so you’re spoilt for choice.
The new arrival slots in between the smaller CX-3 and larger CX-5. Of note is the inclusion of the Skyactiv-X spark-controlled compression ignition petrol engine in the line-up.

The 122PS 2-litre Skyactiv-G petrol has cylinder-deactivation and is matched to front-wheel drive (auto or manual).
The Skyactiv-X petrol, with 180PS, also comes with every grade. Standard spec includes heads-up display, radar cruise control, LED headlights; 18in wheels are standard (silver metallic on Skyactiv-G and Skyactiv-D with bright silver metallic on Skyactiv-X models).
