Review: The Mazda CX-30 is a smaller (Yes), better value Mazda 3 but is it for you?

The oddly named Mazda CX-30 slots between the B-segment CX-3 and the C-segment CX-5. Why is called the CX-30 instead of a more logical CX-4 then? Thats because the CX-4 already exists as a totally unrelated China-only model (based on the previous generation CX-5).This 2020 Mazda CX-30 that you see here is Mazdas latest global product. Its a C-segment SUV, similar to the CX-5 but this one sits closer to the smaller Toyota C-HR than the larger CX-5.Just as its little brother the CX-3 is based on t
