- Qashqai-rivalling small SUV unveiled at Geneva
- Based on recently released Mazda 3 hatchback
- On sale later in 2019
Coming soon: Mazda CX-30
New SUV based on the latest Mazda 3 hatchback unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
The car will go up against super-popular family cars like the Nissan Qashqai, Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq. Detailed technical specs are still unavailable, but we’d be staggered if it weren’t offered with the same engines as the 3, meaning a 122 horsepower 2.0-litre petrol with a mild hybrid system and a conventional 1.8-litre diesel with 116 horsepower. Like the 3, it’s also likely to get Mazda’s interesting SkyActiv-X engine, which uses compression ignition, effectively merging the way a diesel and petrol engine work. It's supposed to mix the responsiveness of a petrol engine with the economy of a diesel.
