The Geneva Motor Show is where we saw a large number of new vehicles presented that might be the ones we take to the roads and enjoy driving in the future. Many of the SUVs offered at this show came in as plug-in hybrid models to show us how the brands that we’ve admired and trusted are making strides forward. One model that showed up to be an SUV that fits in the middle of the lineup is the new Mazda CX-30. While we know it will be in between the CX-3 and CX-5 and wonder why it wasn’t named the CX-4, this SUV is certainly ready to be a success on the road.
Excellence Awaits in the new Mazda CX-30
The Size for the Drive
Compact and subcompact SUVs have become the most popular models on the market for driving to and from the city on a daily basis. This has happened because these models are sized right to fit on the roads easily and park in nearly every location. The Mazda CX-30 is the right size with a 104-inch wheelbase that makes it right for the drive on the roads in the city. We’re going to love the way this SUV handles itself and can be right on the roads we drive.
An Option for the Drive
There are some SUVs in this class that offer only FWD for the ride you need to make. The automakers didn’t equip these models to handle foul weather or to head out on the trails, no matter how light the trail. The new Mazda CX-30 offers you the option of AWD to make sure you can head out for a ride and drive around on some of the lighter trails that you’re going to find in your area.
Excellence in the Materials
Where do you spend your time when you drive your vehicle? Simple, you spend it in the cabin. The cabin of the new Mazda CX-30 is covered in luxury materials that feel great and offer you a higher level of design that you want to enjoy. We already see these upgraded materials in the new Mazda3. These items make their way into this SUV and make it one of the more comfortable choices you can find in this class.
Active Safety Tech Included
Mazda has created its own suite of safety features and technology called the i-Activesense suite of systems. This available tech gives you items that include lane control and active braking to make sure you can easily have the confidence you need when you take the Mazda CX-30 out for a drive on the roads in your area. You’ll be glad you have this package of items included.
The Right Balance of Style
Mazda didn’t make the CX-30 to look overly stylish and pristine, but they did keep a sleek profile with this SUV to give you the look you want to enjoy. The addition of plastic arch cladding and lower door panels allows this SUV to look more rugged than nearly every other SUV in its class. You’re going to be amazed by the style and enjoy the fact that this model looks like you should be able to take it on the trails and know you’re going to have a lot of fun.
a New Powertrain Offering
The new Mazda CX-30 will be the first of the Mazda vehicles to make use of the new and more efficiency SkyActiv-X engine for the drive you want to experience when you head out on the road. This new engine is one that brings you the benefits of turbocharging to give you more efficiency and power in the package that you’re going to be ready to enjoy when you take this SUV out for a drive.
A Manual Could be Offered
There’s a huge number of vehicles on the market today that don’t even offer a manual transmission anymore. Thankfully, there are still a few that make sure we can have the benefit of rowing our own gear when we want to. The option of a manual transmission for the Mazda CX-30 is an exciting thing to think about when it’s time to drive this SUV on the roads in the US.
