The Mazda CX-30 has curved surfaces on the body panels that create changing reflections.

Mazda had Europe in mind
when making the CX-30
M

azda developed the CX-30 with Europe in mind as a key market and
will launch the SUV in the region before
it is rolled out globally. Naohito Saga, the
CX-30's program manager, said Mazda
carried out extensive research on urban
driving in Europe to tailor the car to local
tastes and needs. In Mazda's crossover
and SUV range, the CX-30 slots between
the CX-5 midsize SUV and the CX-3
small SUV, which are the company's two
biggest sellers in Europe.
At 4395mm, the CX-30 is 120mm longer
than the CX-3 and 155mm shorter than
the CX-5. The SUV has been designed to
be just the right size for city driving and
parking, Saga said.
Its features have also been designed
with a global customer base in mind. The
height of the body and seat positioning

allow people of all sizes to get in and out
easily, Saga said. Mazda has put a lot of
effort in optimizing the driving position
to enhance comfort and reduce fatigue,
taking inspiration from the effortless
body movements we make when walking, he said.
Mazda Europe's design chief, Jo Stenuit,
said the CX-30 is mainly aimed at parents with young children. These customers need more room than the space offered in the smaller CX-3 SUV or Mazda3
car, with which the CX-30 shares its
platform, he said.
The CX-30 will get a Skyactiv-X engine
with spark-controlled compression ignition technology that debuted on the
Mazda3. Skyactiv-X combines the best
traits of diesel and gasoline engines to
improve performance and fuel economy,

Fast Facts
❚ Cargo space: The trunk's 430-

liter capacity can accommodate a
large baby carriage and a carry-on
bag at the same time.
❚ All-wheel drive: The i-Active
all-wheel drive is an option with
all powertrains. Its fuel consumption is only 3 percent higher
than the equivalent 2wd versions.
❚ Safety: Mazda's new driver-monitoring system is also an option. It
uses an infrared camera to check
for driver fatigue.
Mazda says. Other engines in Europe will
be a 122-hp, 2.0-liter gasoline unit and a
116-hp, 1.8-liter diesel.
The gasoline engine and the Skyactiv-X
unit are mild hybrids, with a belt-driven
starter-generator allowing energy recovery during braking. The generator helps to
restart the engine after an idling stop and
smooths gear changes by slowing the engine speed in the transition phase.
The CX-30 will be sold in 130 countries,
including the U.S. Mazda builds the SUV in
Hiroshima, Japan. Other production locations will follow.
