September 16th, 2021 by

For years, Mazda has designed quality vehicles made to efficiently drive on a variety of terrains, provide a superior performance, and consume less fuel than the competition.  

The new 2021 Mazda CX-30 subcompact crossover SUV is no exception. 

Released this year, the 2021 Mazda CX-30 contains everything consumers loved about past model years and elevated it with new additional trims and specs. 

Ranked number one in subcompact SUVs by US News, the new 2021 Mazda CX-30 expands upon the previous model-year with a total of seven trim levels that offer the best of its class.

Some features, such as Mazda Connect™, can be found in each of the trim levels, while others, like select i-Activisense® safety features, are exclusive to certain trims.

With its top-performing utility and efficiency, the CX-30 can only be compared to itself.

Exterior Features

Each of the trim levels for the all-new Mazda CX-30 boasts compact, contemporary exteriors that are completely void of the traditional bulkiness associated with other subcompact SUVs on the market.

While each trim level offers quality exterior factors, including LED headlights, which last much longer and are brighter than traditional incandescent lights, there are some differences.

Color Options

The new CX-30 comes in a rainbow of colors and shades, including:

  • CX-30 2.5 S: Snowflake White Pearl Mica, Jet Black Mica, and Deep Crystal Blue Mica.
  • Select and Preferred: Snowflake White Pearl Mica, Machine Gray Metallic, Soul Red Crystal Metallic, Sonic Silver Metallic, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, and Jet Black Mica.
  • Premium, 2.5 Turbo, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus: Snowflake White Pearl Mica, Machine Gray Metallic, Soul Red Crystal Metallic, Sonic Silver Metallic, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, Jet Black Mica, and Polymetal Gray Metallic.

Lighting, Utilities & Tires

All trim levels come with LED exterior lights and rain-sensing windshield wipers. LEDs are superior to traditional lights as they are brighter, last longer, and generate less heat.

The rain-sensing windshield wipers contain sensors that detect infrared reflections created from rain drops on the windshield.

With the wiper lever engaged, the rain sensors can detect the amount of rainfall hitting the windshield and turn the wipers on or off automatically.

Using the information collected from the infrared reflections, rain-sensing windshield wipers can automatically set the wiping speed to expertly maintain a clear view for the driver.

This allows the driver to focus on the road and have optimal visibility in inclement weather.

The Premium, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trim levels include Mazda’s signature LED headlights and taillights, providing additional illumination in the front and rear of the vehicle.

All trim levels, except for the CX-30 2.5 S and the Select, include side mirrors with integrated technology. Drivers will enjoy the addition of turn signals, memory positioning, and tilt-in-reverse functions incorporated in the side mirrors.

The CX-30 2.5 S and the Select Mazda CX-30 both have matte finished front grilles. The other trim levels offer front grilles in a gloss-black finish, rear privacy glass, and automatic moonroofs with interior sunshades.

Rear power liftgates and shark-fin antennas are included for the Premium, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trims.

Aside from the CX-30 2.5 S, which offers 16-inch wheels, drivers will find 18-inch wheels on the remaining CX-30 trim levels.

All seven trim levels come complete with all-season tires, helping to ensure stability while navigating the roads during each season.

Interior Features

The Mazda CX-30’s exterior is compact and sleek, but its interior cabin is spacious and comfortable with an array of features like Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, USB ports, and standard Bluetooth.

Each feature found in the subcompact SUV helps to optimize the driving experience.

Internal Utilities & Features

Each of the 2021 Mazda CX-30 trim levels contain electronic parking brakes and a 12-volt power outlet.

Drivers will find heated front seats in each of the trim levels, except for the Select and CX-30 2.5 S. The 2.5 Turbo Premium and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trim levels also offer drivers the luxury of a heated steering wheel.

The Select, Preferred, Premium, 2.5 Turbo, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trims all have dual-zone automatic climate controls and rear air-conditioning vents.

The CX-30 2.5 S, Select, Preferred, and Premium trim levels offer a choice between front-wheel drive (FWD) and i-ACTIV AWD® (all-wheel drive).

i-ACTIV AWD® is an enhanced predictive system that uses over 27 sensors to monitor the vehicle’s performance and reactions to its environment.

In response, the i-ACTIV® technology will regulate the vehicle’s wheel spin and engine power, augmenting the Mazda’s driving performance depending on its surroundings.

Consumers will find that the 2.5 Turbo, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trim levels come only with i-ACTIV AWD®.

The CX-30 runs on regular unleaded fuel with an 87-octane level, which can be found at any gas station. The model can be refilled via advanced direct injection into the fuel system.

The direct injection fuel system makes the vehicle more fuel-efficient while also lowering emissions.

Engine & Power

The engineering of the Mazda CX-30 brandishes a power that makes it an authority on the road.

Drivers can expect a high-powered performance from each of the CX-30 trim levels.

The 2.5 Turbo, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trims have an impressive 227 hp at 5,000 rpm.

No matter which trim level is chosen, the model is sure to turn heads around every corner.

The 2.5 Turbo, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trims boast especially powerful engines thanks to the six-speed transmission which offers a torque of 320 pounds-per-feet (lb-ft) at 2,500 rpm.

The CX-30 2.5 S, Select, and Preferred all have a six-speed transmission paired with a commendable torque of 186 lb-ft at 4,000 rpm.

The Mazda-exclusive technology assists in maintaining the security of those in the vehicle and on the road.
