    The 2020 Mazda CX-30 will be coming to Malaysia soon as the official distributor, Bermaz Motor is now accepting bookings for their latest Mazda CX-30.Pricing was not in the CX-30’s favour it will be fully imported rather than assembled locally at Mazda Malaysia’s plant. This positioning places it in the league of the Toyota C-HR and not the Honda HR-V.Naturally so, as the 2020 Mazda CX-30 is a direct competitor to the C-HR and not the HR-V. Mazda has the CX-3 for that.The CX-30
