The 2022 Mazda CX-30 is a small compact crossover SUV manufactured by Mazda. The Mazda CX-30 will be available in a Premium Plus trim base when it first appears on the market, but its price is higher than its main competitors such as the Chevrolet Bolt and Nissan Leaf. The Premium Plus model includes a wide range of equipment, including active blind assistance, motion warning, 12-channel Bose stereo system, heated steering wheel, 360-degree external camera system. The Mazda 2022 CX-30 has a top view that starts with a multi-sided grille, slim headlights and a large wing grille that leads to a round hood. When we look at the SUV from the side, the coupe-like lines and the athleticism of the rear are visible.
The triangular taillights and two exhaust pipes give the SUV a sporty look from the rear. Unlike its competitors, the 2022 CX-30 has one of the best cabs in its class, and the 2022 model retains everything we like. The SUV’s rich design and first-class materials don’t make it look like a bigger and more expensive car. The traditional Mazda-style dashboard features stunning lines, an irregular center console, and precise dialing. In addition, the CX-30 features genuine leather upholstery, a large 8.8-inch display, and a Bose audio system with a high-speaker 12-speaker.
2022 Mazda CX-30 : Interior
The interior of the 2022 Mazda CX30 is simple but comfortable. The infotainment system is well-organized and basically easy to navigate with the rotary knob. With the exception of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, if the CX-30 has a touch screen, it will be easier to operate. Ahead, individuals 6 feet or less in height should have ample space on all sides. While the CX-30 has a total capacity of five, the comfort in the back seat is really tailored for the average adult.
The CX-30 standard has good technique. Advanced safety and driver tools are one of the best in terms of performance. You can even get a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, but you’ll have to pay for the service once the test is over. Our test CX-30 had two USB and two 12-volt power ports. The updated Bose audio system provides good, clear sound with good bass. The navigation system is easy to use and the 8.8-inch infotainment display is a really bright and clear screen.
2022 Mazda CX-30 : Engine
The all-electric 2022 MX-30 is equipped with a single electric motor with 143 horsepower that drives the front wheels; all-wheel drive is not available. However, we do know that there will be a plug-in-hybrid version that connects the electric motor to a rotating gasoline engine, so the all-wheel drive is still on the table. Apparently, the Mazda MX-30 should deliver better speed at lower speeds than horsepower, but speed seekers can offer more power to competitors like Hyundai Kona Electric and Mini Cooper Electric.
Compared to other electric cars, the MX-30 has a smaller 32.0 kWh battery. Mazda estimates that its driving range is only 100 miles per charge, which is twice less than the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Kona Electric. The battery will be able to charge with standard variable power, as well as with a modern and faster DC charger. The EPA has not announced a fuel-saving price for the MX-30, but similar electric cars like the Kona Electric and Bolt EV have ratings of 120 and 119 MPGe, respectively. We expect the MX-30 to have a similar rating.
