Before the start of the Geneva motor show, Mazda has kept the interest of the society to the new crossover, keeping most information secret. I must say that the brand was able to achieve this success. If everyone expected to see cross-coupe Mazda CX-4 or maybe the new generation CX-3, the manufacturer of Hiroshima surprised everyone and introduced the world to a crossover Mazda CX-30, which is the cross version of the new “Troika”.
The length of the new car is 4395 mm, and the wheelbase 2655 mm (85 mm longer than the Mazda CX-3), provides significantly more space for rear passengers. Overall shape of the body and used design solutions have much in common with hastbacka Mazda 3, and the changes were minimal. Overall, got another SUV for the city, with a slightly increased clearance underneath and protection of unpainted plastic.
About the technical part of the model representatives of the Japanese brand, limited only by the words about the availability of versions of “mild hybrid” and the installation of the latest 2.0-liter engine Skyactiv-X. But we can assume that there will not be without heavy borrowing from the “Troika”. Get Mazda CX-30 and branded all-wheel drive system i-Activ, well proven on other models.
European sales of the crossover is scheduled for mid-2019, so more detailed information about the model will appear in two to three months. It is not excluded that there will be Mazda CX-30 on the Russian market, but much later.
