Mazda has revealed its full pricing and specification structure for the new CX-30.

The new compact SUV, which slots in between the smaller CX-3 and larger CX-5 in the firm’s line-up, goes on sale priced from £22,895.

Available with the choice of two petrol engines, the Mazda CX-30 also arrives with a five-strong range of trim levels beginning at SE-L and ending with GT Sport Tech.

Jeremy Thomson, managing director of Mazda UK, said: “Like the all-new Mazda 3, this is a car that demonstrates the new standards of style, quality and technology found in our next–generation models.

“It’s also great that the groundbreaking Skyactiv-X engine is available from launch, as its low CO2, excellent fuel economy and performance, delivers a superb combination of benefits to our customers”.

The CX-30 is only available with all-wheel-drive from the Sport Lux trim level – third in line from base-spec SE-L – and above.

The first engine available is a 2.0-litre unit driving the CX-30’s front wheels and sending power through either an automatic or manual transmission. Featuring cylinder-deactivation technology, it should return up to 45.6mpg when utilising the six-speed manual.

The other powertrain available utilises Mazda’s innovative new Skyactiv-X engine. Featuring spark-controlled compression ignition, it mirrors the economy usually found with a diesel, but with the response of a petrol. Combined, Mazda says it’ll return 47.9mpg while emitting 105g/km of CO2.

All cars get a good standard of equipment included as standard, with even SE-L cars benefitting from 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors and LED headlights.

As yet, the CX-30 has not yet been crash tested by Euro NCAP, but recent Mazda products have all performed very well and there’s no reason to expect this one will be any different.

The Mazda CX-30 is available to order now, and first deliveries are expected to commence in January next year.
