The new 2022 Mazda CX-30: It's priced like a VW but looks like a BMW

That take on the 2022 Mazda CX-30's remarkable dual personality is not just our opinion here at Southtowne Mazda in Sandy UT. That's the kind of praise given by the demanding editors at Car & Driver in describing the CX-30. We happen to agree. Buyers from Orem and Bountiful, UT will find this compact SUV has the looks and the personality to compete with Audi Q3 and the BMW X1 but the price puts it in a more affordable neighborhood.

Trim levels and pricing ballparks

For 2022, the Mazda CX-30 comes in a hefty total of eight trims: The Base, the Select (Car & Driver's favorite for overall value), the Preferred, the Carbon Edition, the Turbo, the Premium, the Turbo Premium and the Turbo Premium Plus. Prices start in the low $20K area while the higher trims stay in the mid-$30K range. All-wheel drive is standard across all trims and a new Carbon Edition features red leather upholstery and 18-inch black wheels.

For those who move up to the high-level Premium trim, buyers from communities like Murray and Salt Lake City, UT will find themselves sitting in luxurious genuine leather upholstery. They will also get the rewarding convenience of a power-operated liftgate and other upscale features that Car & Driver says put the 2022 Mazda CX-30 in the lofty company of a premium crossover like the 2022 Lexus UX.


Engines for the Mazda CX-30 get off to a good start with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder generating 186 horsepower. You can choose to move up to 2.5-liter engine that's turbocharged and your horsepower level would immediately move up to 250. The Car & Driver editor added more praise on the new CX-30 by noting it's "just as nimble…and fun to drive" as the Mazda 3 hatchback, also extolling the CX-30's "crisp steering and fluid body movements."

Fuel economy

The mileage mavens at the EPA estimate that the new Mazda CX-30 can sip gasoline slowly enough to give you 24 miles with every city gallon and 31 miles with every gallon on the highway. That's if you're driving the non-turbo versions. Get a little more power and yes, you get a little less fuel efficiency, but the difference isn't much. Figure you'll still be driving with gas mileage of 22 per city gallon and about 30 with every gallon on the highway.


Just because the newest Mazda CX-30 accelerates well and efficiently doesn't mean it doesn't have strong interior virtues. Car & Driver called the CX-30's interior "handsome…(and) well-crafted" like the Mazda 30 "…which we love." An easy-to-use infotainment display is planted firmly on the dash featuring a simple rotary dial. Climate control buttons enhance the ease-of-use even more. Mazda CX-30 can upgrade to eight- or 12-speaker audio.


The standard screen in the 2022 Mazda CX-30 is a generously-sized 8.8 inches. Mazda Connected Services lets you start remotely and lock or unlock your car using the MyMazda app. Blue tooth comes standard and so does a Wi-Fi hotspot along with two USB inputs up front. Available connectivity features include Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration as well as Sirius XM satellite radio.


The new 2022 Mazda CX-30 comes with an extra-smart cruise control safety system that can measure the distance between your Mazda and the car in front of you as you're driving. If things get too close between the two vehicles, the cruise system can adjust your speed to keep a safe following distance.
