Our first impressions of the 2020 Mazda CX-30 are pretty positive. It’s an excellent SUV, and one that makes a lot more sense for most buyers than a regular sedan or hatch of the same size. Pricing for Australia remains to be confirmed, but we suspect it will be priced roughly $2000 more than the equivalent Mazda 3, and if you ask us, it’s worth the money.

      Can't wait to testdrive the CX-30. I really like the plastic cadding as it protects the lower side profile (I hate when the sides get dirty and scratched)...you negative nancy haters need to get a freakin life...You obviously have no taste in a vehicle (I'm entitled to my opinion as you are as well so bite me). This with AWD is going to be great for my adventures to Las Vegas. Can't wait!

      The black around it is not that attractive and it's still cramped in the back.

      How about the rigidity o the body sheet metal ?
      Most mazda models have very soft sheet metal that can be banged easily...
      The car looks very bad after 2 or 3 years of usage ...

      Why is no one showing the backseats? With three kids, that's critical to me.

      Mazda always made a good car, but why the number of selling is not like Honda or Toyota??

      Destiny tran In reply to Fajar

      Fajar because people keep telling others to buy Toyota and Honda. They tell people not to buy Mazda. When I first decided to buy a Mazda. My mom said “NO! Very bad car”. She told me to either buy a Honda, Toyota or Nissan. My friend told me to buy Hundei. I don’t like model of those brands. I do like Mazda’s model. So, I bought a Mazda3 hatchback against my mom’s wish. And I love it. Now, my mom wants me to give my Mazda to her. Lol. I plan to give her my Mazda3, then I will buy a Mazda CX-5 early next year.

      I like mazda design but due to very long bonnet, back leg-room is limited when you compare competitors.

      It's not a mainstream car. Mainstream people can't afford it. And I love the plastics on the exterior, it makes the car look less unibody, less uniform, so because of it it's not blunt and boring.

      Beautiful and classy design but if it drives like a Mazda 3, then it's too bumpy for my taste.
