The Mazda CX-30 made an appearance this year at the Geneva Motor Show and last week, Adrian had a walkaround with it at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

The CX-30 slots in the gap between the CX-3 and CX-5 (CX-4 already taken) and is based on the new Mazda 3, which explains the pretty much identical interior.

As seen in the video, interior space is not vast, a common Mazda trait but adequate for most Asian-sized adults. Materials and build quality is top notch.

On the outside, the car rides on 18-inch alloys and there are hints of Mazda 3 and CX-5 influence on the front, with the grille trim stretching below the headlamps. On the other end, the rear taillamps have a resemblance to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

Powertrain option is likely to be a 2.0-litre engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission though exact specifications for our market are yet to be confirmed.



The quest for automotive knowledge began as soon as the earliest memories. Various sources information, even questionable ones, have been explored including video games, television, magazines, or even internet forums. Still stuck in that rabbit hole.
