Here's why the new Mazda CX-30 isn't called the CX

New Mazda CX-30

Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the CX-30 is the third model to join the current SUV range and will sit between the CX-3 and CX-5.

"While the CX-30 slots in nicely between the CX-3 and CX-5 in most dimensions, Mazda gave it a distinctive name because it's an all-new vehicle with features not yet available on others in the line-up and the first of the CX models to adapt the new Kodo design", the Mazda spokesperson told the publication.

But it seems the idea of two different cars with the CX-4 moniker was just too complicated for Mazda, so they've come up with a new moniker - the Mazda CX-30 - for their new SUV.

It does showcase the latest iteration of Mazda's "Kodo" design language. This new compact crossover is the second model in a new generation of Mazda cars that offer refined quality in every area.

It's built on the same underpinnings as the brand new Mazda3 hatchback, which means that the CX-30 will have access to the new Mazda SkyActiv-X petrol engine when it hits the market. This clever technology combines aspects of petrol and diesel engines, aiming to bring the torque and fuel economy of compression ignition engines to a spark ignition auto.

Initially, the CX-30 will go on sale with a 2.0-litre petrol and 1.8-litre diesel - both SkyActiv mild-hybrid units mated to either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearboxes.

The new CX-30 looks like the love child of the CX-3 and Mazda3, with smooth body panels, lots of butch plastic cladding, family grille and a small greenhouse.

The auto also comes with a 24-volt mild hybrid (gasoline-electric) system.
