The 2020 Mazda CX-30 comes in a variety of trim levels that make it easy for you to find the perfect balance between features and your budget. The lineup starts with the base-level CX-30, which is already decently equipped. But if you want an even more equipped SUV, opt for the Select, Preferred, and Premium packages.

Mazda continues to impress us with their keen eye for design. The lines and curves that make up the CX-30’s body make it look like streamlined elegance. The front fascia features a glossy black mesh grille that lends itself to a sporty appearance. The unique S-shaped curvature along the sides and doors play with light and grab attention. LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights make the CX-30 look good even at night. If you’re looking for an SUV that has as much of a personality as you do, the 2020 CX-30 is an excellent choice.


Every 2020 Mazda CX-30 is equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Skyactiv-G engine that delivers best-in-class 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. This engine is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The CX-30’s powertrain design allows it to achieve an estimated 25 mpg rating in the city and 33 on the highway for a combined 28 mpg. Even when equipped with the all-wheel-drive system, the CX-30 gets a 26 combined mpg rating.

Performance Features

Opt for a CX-30 model equipped with the available all-wheel-drive system, which comes with every trim level. Mazda’s i-Activ AWD is predictive, reading road conditions and driving habits to send power to the wheels that need it before they need it. If you find yourself on dirt roads, use the off-road traction assist feature.

Available steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters allow you to take greater control over your Mazda’s automatic transmission. The Premium trim level is equipped with an adaptive front-lighting system that points your headlights in the direction you’re turning to improve your safety and ability to perform at night. Whether your adventures take you through the heart of the city or the great outdoors, these CX-30 performance features equip you for anything the road throws at you.


The new CX-30 seats five passengers in two rows. With the split-folding rear row laid flat, you’ll get up to 45.2 cubic feet of cargo space where you can pack your adventuring gear and luggage. The available rear power liftgate makes loading and unloading your SUV easier than ever. Opt for the Select to take advantage of features such as dual-zone automatic climate control and leatherette upholstery. The CX-30 Preferred adds heated front seats to keep you comfortable all year long. The Premium package offers leather-trimmed upholstery in three distinct color options.

There are many available accessories and add-ons that you can customize your CX-30 with. Whether you’re looking for bike-ready roof rails, premium floor mats, or rear cargo storage solutions, making the CX-30 best suited for your wants and needs is easy.


A modern SUV should come with an array of up-to-date drive-enhancing technologies, and the 2020 Mazda CX-30 has plenty. Every trim level boasts an 8.8-inch screen that you control using buttons and a dial on your center console. This screen performs an impressive number of functions, including connecting to your phone via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These programs — which come standard with the Select trim level — allow you to use many of your favorite phone features and apps without ever having to pick up your device.

Upgrade to the Preferred trim level to add the 12-speaker Bose premium sound system to give your SUV a concert hall-quality listening experience. The Premium adds a head-up display that projects important driving data above the steering wheel to help you keep you your eyes on the road.


To bring safety to a modern level, each CX-30 comes equipped with some of the latest and most impressive driver-assist technologies in Mazda’s i-Activsense suite. Every trim level comes outfitted with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and a lane-keep assist. As you move up trim levels, you’ll also get access to a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and more.

These technologies use sensors mounted around the CX-30’s exterior to sense what other cars on the road around you are up to. These high-tech safety features are more proactive, pairing with the CX-30’s more reactive high-tensile steel body frame and advanced air bag system. Mazda’s driver-assist technologies don’t take control away from their drivers — they simply make more aware and safer drivers out of all of us.


The 2020 Mazda CX-30 has an affordable MSRP range that lets you choose the best model for your budget. As we mentioned above, the base-level model is decently equipped, but the more you move up trim levels, the more exciting the CX-30’s list of features becomes.

  • Base CX-30: $21,900
  • Select Package: $23,900
  • Preferred Package: $26,200
  • Premium Package: $28,200

Keep in mind that these are the lowest starting MSRP estimates. Extra accessories will add to the 2020 Mazda CX-30’s price tag, as well as the dealership you choose. Always use a trusted Mazda dealership to ensure you’re getting the best deals and service for your vehicles.
