Fontana Mazda Shoppers Get To Preview The 2020 Mazda CX-30
The CX-30 is Mazda’s new small crossover that slots between the CX-3 and CX-5. For those wondering why Mazda didn’t name the new vehicle the CX-4, the answer is there’s already a Mazda CX-4, although it’s only available in China. Fontana Mazda shoppers are sure to enjoy the 2020 Mazda CX-30, thanks to its bold styling and ample cargo space. The CX-30 comes with a nice array of technology and driver-assistance features that come standard. Meanwhile, the interior is even more luxurious than competitors like the Nissan Rogue Sport and the Subaru Crosstrek.
Automotive reviewers have commented that the CX-30 is intended for younger car buyers who are looking for a small SUV that looks and feels like a luxury model but doesn’t carry a luxury price tag at dealerships like the Mazda dealer near Fontana. Buyers who are looking for a crossover that’s easy to park, easy to look at and provides nimble handling will want to add the 2020 Mazda CX-30 to the top of their shopping list.

Automotive Press Praise for The Mazda CX-30
CNET praised the 2020 CX-30, writing: “Affordable crossovers have to be a lot of things to a lot of people. Some focus on excellent cargo space (Honda HR-V), while others make their mark with flashy style (Toyota C-HR). Still, it's rare that one of these subcompact SUVs actually gets me excited to go driving. But that's where the Mazda CX-30 comes in.”
Under the hood, the 2020 Mazda CX-30 has the same engine as its Mazda3 stablemate: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder powerplant that produces 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, connected to a six-speed automatic gearbox. We expect the same level of performance as the Mazda3, since the CX-30 uses the same torsion-beam rear suspension. Buyers can get the CX-30 with front- or all-wheel drive.
As of the date of this writing, the fuel-economy specs are unavailable. Look for similar figures as the Mazda3, which delivers an EPA-rated 27/36 mpg with front-wheel drive and 25/33 mpg with all-wheel drive.*
Inside, there’s a sophisticated interior on par with what you’ll find in the Mazda3. The excellent infotainment system is controlled with an easy-to-use rotary knob. There’s a choice of two audio systems, one with eight speakers and the other with 12. Available heated front seats will keep the driver and passengers warm during cold winter months.
Standard features include Mazda Connected Services, a set of features that can be controlled with an app. Mazda Connected Services includes remote locking and unlocking, remote start and the ability to monitor the vehicle remotely. Bluetooth and two front USB ports are also standard. Available features include Apple CarPlay and Android Audio, Sirius XM satellite radio and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Standard driver-assistance features include lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology. A head-up display and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert are optional.
