Walkthrough Review

The 2023 Mazda CX-30 GS showcases its well-crafted interior with its infotainment display that sprouts from the center of the dashboard and comes controlled by a rotary knob on the center console. You can also find a row of climate-control buttons dividing the upper and lower dash panels inside the cabin of the CX-30 GS. Buyers can choose an eight- or twelve-speaker audio system and upgrade to available heated front seats. Going with the top-spec Premium trim adds leather upholstery and a power-operated rear liftgate. The Mazda -30 is for an even quieter ride by significantly reducing the transmission noise generated by tires and wind, especially at highway speeds so that you can appreciate the ambience of a whisper-quiet cabin. Each opulent interior element, from the available Bose sound system to the tremendously helpful centre console to well-appointed materials and finishes, works together to provide a smooth and breathtaking driving experience.


A driver searching for a quick SUV that offers a surprising amount of storage without sacrificing passenger space should consider the Mazda CX-30. The CX-30 creates an exciting environment on every drive and journey by balancing each opulent inside component with its aggressive design and exterior flare. Masterfully carved and fashioned lines smooth the flow of the CX-30's powerful form and sleek dimensions, giving it a sensation of motion while moving or even at a stop. These lines also reflect light and deepen shadows. The optional rear hydraulic liftgate allows simple programmable height adjustment to prevent damage in low clearance locations. Touch sensors make loading and unloading less stressful for anyone juggling parcels, pets, or even children.


A 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with 191 horsepower is the base model for the CX-30. The Skyactiv-G 2.5 T Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine, which is optional, produces 320 lb-ft of torque and up to 250 horsepower for exceptional fuel efficiency, agile handling, and performance that is both energizing and of the finest quality. This engine comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that makes intelligent gear selections dependent on road conditions.
