With the 2020 Mazda CX-30 CUV, Mazda seeks to expand its lineup of crossovers and SUVs. This new Mazda CUV takes the open space slotted between the subcompact CX-3 and the compact CX-5. The philosophy behind the new CX-30 is "charge and release." A resulting form that energizes the driver before they ever get behind the wheel. Let's get a closer look at what to expect from the all-new Mazda CX-30 at Bob Penkhus Mazda in Colorado Springs.

Watch the CX-30 Reveal

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 CUV is engineered with a forward-canted rear window, thin wide-set headlights, smooth body panels, and a simple honeycomb grille. This sets it apart from the other crossovers in the lineup. You can catch the full reveal on Mazda's website.

CX-30 Release Date

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 is set to arrive soon. It's unclear of an exact date but since the CX-30 is dubbed with the 2020 production year, at the very latest we should see this vehicle release in early 2020. Otherwise, it would make more sense to include the CX-30 in the 2021 lineup. Once the CX-30 actually does release, drivers throughout Colorado will be flocking to Bob Penkhus Mazda Motor City to find the best possible deal.

Mazda CX-30 vs. CX-3: The Difference

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 CUV is longer, wider and sportier than the CX-3 model. It holds that perfect spot between the CX-3 and the CX-5.

Starting Price

The exact pricing of the 2020 Mazda CX-30 CUV has not been revealed to the public yet. We expect that it should start in the low $20,000 range, so it stays between the price range of the CX-3 and the CX-5.

Mazda CX-30 Fuel Economy

We don't have specific mpg numbers on the 2020 Mazda CX-30 CUV fuel economy yet, but we can assume it will be similar to other models. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 achieves up to 29 city / 34 highway while the 2019 Mazda CX-5 gets up to 25 city / 31 highway. Expect the CX-30 mpg ratings to fall between the fuel economy numbers of the CX-3 and CX-5.
