Mazda MX-30

The Mazda MX-30 not only looks good, it’s also as kind to bank balances as it is to the environment. Indeed, plug-in hybrid models are very cost-effective to run while producing significantly fewer emissions than their conventional equivalents – and all-electric variants produce none at all.

The entry-level Prime-Line grade ensures that the Mazda MX-30 comes well-specified as standard. However, if you want even more from your ride, there are always the Exclusive-Line and Makoto trims to choose from.

    Prime-Line This baseline grade gets the MX-30 off to a fine start with 18-alloy wheels, LED lights, an eight-speaker sound system, satellite navigation and a host of driver-assist systems.
    Exclusive-Line Exclusivity is a key part of this well-named trim’s appeal, with dark-tinted rear glass that offers greater privacy, for instance.
    Strapline This top-tier grade comes with all the bells and whistles, including front, rear and side-mounted cameras that provide you with a 360-degree monitor-assisted view.
    Interior An SUV with a sporty coupé-like bearing, the five-seat Mazda MX-30 is nonetheless reassuringly practical. For instance, it features ‘hidden’ rear doors that open in an unconventional way – rearwards rather than forwards.
      Split-folding flexibility A minimum-capacity 332-litre boot can quickly be expanded to a minimum 1,155-litre capacity – and thanks to standard-issue 60/40 split-folding seats, it’s easy to strike the perfect passenger-luggage balance.
      That’s entertainment An eight-speaker sound system is included as standard, featuring DAB radio, an FM tuner and USB inputs – and Bluetooth connectivity which enables audio streaming. Offering an enhanced audiophile experience is the Makoto grade which is equipped with a 12-speaker Bose surround system.
      Smartphone integration and navigation Thanks to the inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you can safely and easily access your smartphone via the car’s touchscreen display. You can also intuitively plan each journey thanks to a standard-issue Mazda Navigation system that features European mapping and five years’ worth of free updates.
      PHEV and electric efficiency Plug-in hybrid MX-30 models return up to 282.5mpg while producing CO2 emissions as low as 21g/km. If you opt for a pure-electric variant, you’ll enjoy even greater efficiency and zero-emissions driving. Either way, this SUV is fully ULEZ compliant.
      Exterior A super-contemporary body style perfectly reflects this SUV’s eco-friendly, forward-thinking sensibilities – and a swooping roofline provides it with a distinctly sporty attitude.
        Attractive alloys The MX-30 is equipped with minimum-size 18-inch alloy wheels that are in perfect harmony with the car’s appealing exterior aesthetics. What’s more, their lightweight yet durable design helps to deliver enhanced efficiency and performance.
        Light up your life Dusk-sensing LED headlights automatically switch from high to low beams (and vice versa) to perfectly match the brightness of your surrounding area. While optimising illumination, they minimise the dazzle experienced by oncoming vehicles.
        Clever features Electrically adjustable, heated and auto-powered door mirrors, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and front and rear parking sensors are just some of the standard-issue features that make the MX-30 driving experience a stress-free one.
        Five-star protection Awarded a maximum five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP, the Mazda MX-30 is super safe and loaded with standard-issue driver aids. For instance, Blind-spot Monitoring detects vehicles as they approach from behind (or from an adjacent lane) while automatically alerting you to their presence.
