2020 Mazda CX-30 Test-Drive Video: A Better Fun-Size Fit?

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 is an all-new small SUV that gives the automaker an actual subcompact SUV contender. The CX-3 already exists, but even Mazda admitted that it’s too small for American tastes.

The name CX-30 sounds a lot like CX-3, so you’re not alone if you’re confused. Both models are cheaper and smaller than the compact CX-5, but the important thing to remember is that the new CX-30 is substantially roomier than the CX-3. It competes against a growing group of subcompact SUVs including the new Kia Seltos and Chevrolet’s revived Trailblazer.

If you like the redesigned Mazda3 compact sedan and hatchback, then you’re going to like the CX-30, as the two vehicles share a platform. The CX-30 has good power, lots of safety tech and — like many Mazdas — is fun to drive.
