2020/21 Mazda CX-30
The new Mazda SUV for the Geneva Auto Show is not the cool Chinese Market CX-4, like many predicted.
And it is not the all new redesigned CX-3 either.
Instead, this is an all new model, confusingly called “CX-30”.
Which is basically is a new Mazda3 hatchback on stilts.
Which is what Subaru has done for years with the Outback or Crosstrek
You can see here how close the new CX-30 is related to the new Mazda 3.
At least they did make quite an efford. Unlike Subaru.
Since everything behind the front door seems new and redesigned. The front fenders as well.
Same story inside Where things are very similar but actually quite different. (The CX-30 is the bottom picture)
Mazda claims there is room for this between the $20 500 CX-3 and the $24 500 CX-5.
Of course there is. So far.
But they have already mentioned the next CX-3 would also be based on the new CX-3 and therefore be larger than the current one. Which is also code for “more expensive”.
I mean why not… If a small brand like Mazda can find an inexpensive way to come up with another poular SUV so they can make a bit more emoney, really, why not.
Although their design do start looking a bit generic to me now. That “Mazda DNA” design needs something new…
