2021 Mazda CX-30: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - March 31, 2020

Model Preview

Mazda introduced the CX-30 in the 2020 model year as a bridge between the subcompact CX-3 and the compact CX-5. With this niche crossover still fresh, we expect the 2021 CX-30 to be a carryover vehicle.

Despite having a name and proportions similar to the CX-3, the CX-30 is not a replacement for or a refinement of the CX-3. It is its own model with its own design cues that include wider, slitlike headlights, dark mesh grille, sleeker front fascia, additional body cladding, and more. It is larger than the CX-3 by 4.7 inches in length and 1.1 inches in width. Its wheelbase is also 3.3 inches longer. We expect the design and proportions to remain the same when the 2021 CX-30 arrives.

Inside, the CX-30 boasts a cleaner cabin that features smaller knobs and buttons, less metallic trim, a unique tri-post steering wheel, an infotainment screen placed higher on the dash and lots of soft-touch materials. This cabin is almost more like a downsized CX-9 than an upsized CX-3. We expect the 2021 CX-30 to arrive with no changes.

Mazda CX-30

Under its hood, the current CX-30 rolls in with Mazda's ubiquitous 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that injects 186 horsepower into a six-speed automatic transmission. This powerheads to the front wheels or all four wheels with optional all-wheel drive. We expect this powertrain to remain the same in the 2021 CX-30.

Mazda has put a lot of focus on safety lately, and the CX-30 is no exception. The current model earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick award thanks to its "Good" crash test scores across the board, "Good"-rated optional headlights, and "Superior"-rated standard automatic emergency braking system. Other standard safety and convenience features include adaptive cruise control and active lane control. Buyers can opt for blind-spot monitoring.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date set for the 2021 Mazda CX-30, but based on last year's debut, we're expecting a late-2020 arrival.

Pricing is also still in the wind, but with no changes coming, we expect nothing more than a small move from the current CX-30 MSRP range of $23,000 to $30,700 (destination fees included).

This larger subcompact crossover will battle the Chevy Trax, Ford Ecosport, and Honda HR-V.
