Mazda hits the ball out of the park once again with the all-new CX-30. Sharing the same basic architecture as the Mazda3 Hatchback, this subcompact SUV delights Phoenix Mazda shoppers with beautiful styling that lifts Mazda’s kodo design language to new heights. The 2020 Mazda CX-30 has 6.9-inches of ground clearance, 1.4 inches more than its Mazda3 Hatchback sibling. Like all Mazda models, driving dynamics are superb, and the CX-30’s small size makes it easy to maneuver in and out of tight spaces.
Visit Phoenix area Mazda dealerships, and you’ll notice that Mazda has transformed its lineup to deliver a near-luxury level of sophistication. This is evident when you step into the CX-30’s elegant cabin. You’ll feel like you’re inside a luxury crossover that costs a lot more. Buyers looking for a crossover that’s larger than the CX-3 and smaller than the compact CX-5 should take a close look at the 2020 Mazda CX-30.
The automotive media give the 2020 Mazda CX-30 high marks, with CNET writing: “Frankly, to get anything that handles as well and looks as good as the CX-30, you'd have to jump up to a German luxury crossover. Sure, the BMW X1s and Mercedes-Benz GLAs of this world have more power, but this little Mazda is just as potent, looks better and costs a heck of a lot less.”
Buyers can get the 2020 Mazda CX-30 in one of four trim levels: base, Select, Preferred and Premium.

This engine is shared with the 2020 Mazda3. Front-wheel drive is standard across the CX-30 lineup, and all-wheel drive is available.
