Highlights from MAZDA CX-30 Reviews

The 2022 Mazda CX-30 represents the next generation of the Mazda SUV, alongside the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9. It’s equal parts powerful, sporty, and sophisticated, boasting an impressive set of performance specs and a long list of innovative amenities. Below, we’ve selected some highlights from four top critical reviews of the 2022 Mazda CX-30:

  • Car and Driver: “Handling is agile and the CX-30’s on-road demeanor is reminiscent of Mazda’s sportier offerings, which we greatly appreciate; so much so, that we gave it an Editors’ Choice award. A generous helping of infotainment and driver-assistance features is standard and, starting this year, so is all-wheel drive.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “Small crossovers aren’t the first, second, or even third choices for people who really like driving. Unless it’s a Mazda CX-30.The same flow, feel, fun, and fleetness that comes in other Mazda vehicles are all here in the CX-30. Anything better than this probably has a BMW badge and a price to match.
  • MotorTrend: “Like several of Mazda’s offerings, the 2022 CX-30 is a looker with handling chops. Its sleek and sexy exterior design language is matched by an interior that is both upscale and thoughtfully laid out. Steering feel is direct and well balanced.”
