The 2020 Mazda CX-30 joined the segment of small crossovers with a proportionate dimension of every aspect. In other words it is a rightly-sized vehicle that will first catch your attention with its good looks. Then once you sit behind its wheels, it can make you experience what a fun to drive vehicle should behave like. As commented by a recent user of the 2020 Mazda CX-30, whom we met at the Schertz Mazda dealership showroom, it is a vehicle that now stands ahead of its competitors in many respects.
The Sporty Look
The place that the 2020 Mazda CX-30 has secured for itself in its own segment can be largely because of its catchy sporty look that shows, how the brand is still pursuing the concept of design following their KODO concept.
The 2020 edition of Mazda CX-30 can be seen as mechanically similar to the Mazda 3 series and has also borrowed some styling cues but in better proportions. The first noticeable difference is the rear hatch which isn’t stretched that long behind the second row. In that comparison, the structure of the 2020 CX-30 stands a little taller with a higher ground clearance measuring 8.0 inches.
The interior cabin of the2020 Mazda CX-30 is laid out in a thoughtful manner utilizing every bit of space with intelligence and intuition. From the creature comfort perspective, Mazda has shown its capacity in quality control with the choice of materials, while the cabin atmosphere is hushed up with the most advanced noise isolation technology. For infotainment, there is an 8.8-inch center display that comes as standard on all trim models.
When it is a Mazda vehicle, that too from the crossover SUV segment, we can expect substantial amount of horsepower to be working under the hood. Mazda keeps our expectation by engaging a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that makes 182 horsepower when paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. As a small size crossover, this engine can rev willingly on any road surface with an excellent grip on the road.Thetransmission is perfectly tuned to release only the right amount of engine power to the front wheels, if you take the standard configuration. But Mazda allows you to switch to all-wheel drive, as the computer controls automatically keepmaintaining thebodyweight of the vehicle at the right places, attaining excellent body balance even when taking sharp turns.
Four adults will fit comfortably in the CX-30 with room for tall legs in back. The cargo area swallows 20 cubic feet of cargo with the seats up, and the rear opening is bigger this year for better use of its available space (although it’s a little too tall).
Level of Safety
Every 2020 edition model of Mazda CX-30 is equipped with a series of advanced safety technologies that counts automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitors as standard, except for the base model. So, the sales staff of the Mazda dealer Schertz suggest to go for the Select trim that will beget you with a synthetic leather upholstered cabin, rear climate vents, 18-inch wheels, and blind-spot monitors.
