    Talking Is Mazda's upcoming CX-30 on your shopping list?

    First post and thread in our newest forum!

    I know a discussion has already started in the CX-5 forum on this new model...Let's keep it going over here...Who's interested in picking up a CX-30?

    For those unfamiliar with the announcement...You can check it out here... https://www.mazdausa.com/cx-30

    Hi! Cool! Happy to hear your CX-5 is treating you well and that you're thinking of going for the CX-9 next time...Got to say the CX-8 is quite popular here in Japan despite its larger size (larger tends to be less convenient for parking etc).

    Let us know your thoughts on the CX-30 if you see one!

    I hear ya...Yeah perhaps that's what Mazda is aiming for with the CX-30...People without kids, couples, singles who desire more space than the CX-3 offers...Who also like the CX-30 styling more as well...

    I like the look of the front and the rear, but the thick plastic cladding around the wheel arches isn't for me. Maybe if they made it half as thick around the arches, it might be more appealing (to me).

    Kind of a dealbreaker for me too. Rear looks good, but the cladding looks cheapo and awful.

    Honestly, if they put the Miata engine into the CX-3, I would buy that as a commuter car. I moved from a CX-5 to a CX-9 and love it but miss the smaller car. For just me driving to work and around town, I could see a CX-3, the CX-30 or the Mazda 3 all working.

    Yeah not a fan of too much plastic cladding as well...That said, depending on the angle, it seems to blend in with the overall design nicely...I do like the CX-30's sleek lines.

    I'm not an expert obviously but it seems like this use of plastic cladding is a cost saving / production efficiency strategy...Hopefully it turns into a "Win Win" for Mazda...The more success they have the more likely we might see a powerful flagship model someday or at least the return of MAZDASPEED to the lineup!

    Ya, I think the cladding is a design element as well, also good for protection from road debris. I donít care for it, but everyone is doing it. I think MAZDASPEED is dead, unfortunately!

    The wife and I like the CX-30 but a big factor, for us, will be the actual release in the U.S. Her lease is up August 6th so if it is after that date, then it will not be a serious contender.

    As for the cladding, the CX-5 has it but it is not as prominent. Another thought is that they are using it to give the vehicle that 4x4 look.

    CX-5 cladding is tasteful...though the gaudy front end does ruin that for me a bit.

    Agreed, the cladding is so wide/prominent on the 30. When reviewer thought it made the vehicle look taller like it had big wheels and tires...so ya, the 4x4 look!

    Aloha from Hawaii! It's been ages since I wrote, but my Protege recently turned 18 and my 2011 Mazda2 is my daily driver and is 8 years old. I will be considering the CX-30 since the CX3 is off my Mazda2 and I've noticed the tight room all around when I looked at it at the car show. IMO the Mazda CX30 would fit my needs, but only if a nicely equipped one doesn't come close price wise to a CX5. Otherwise one would think to go with the CX-5, but here in traffic filled Hawaii the CX30 would be a good size.

    My lease on my "other" car runs out in a few months.

    Considering Mazda-3 or CX-30. It will depend on 3 variables, compared to the others on my short-list.

    1) Total Cost of Lease (Money @ Signing + Total of monthly payments + Disposition Fee)
    2) Gas Mileage (compared to others on my short list)
    3) Feeling during Test-Drive.

    I haven't seen any definitive numbers on American Gas MPG??
