Slotting into the Mazda SUV lineup in the narrow space between the subcompact CX-3 and the compact CX-5 is the new—and curiously named—CX-30. Why isn’t it called CX-4? We asked Mazda: It’s kind of a long story. Regardless, we like the way it looks. Mazda’s designers gave it a more severely forward-canted rear window and chunkier black-plastic body cladding to help differentiate the 2020 Mazda CX-30 from its other crossover siblings. The CX-30 comes standard with impressive technology, both in terms of connectivity and driver-assistance features. Equipped with the perky and responsive engine seen in the Mazda 3, the CX-30 suggests it’ll ooze with that enthusiast appeal for which Mazda is famous.
All CX-30s are equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 186 horsepower and up to 186 lb-ft of torque; it’s the same engine in the 2020 Mazda 3. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission available on the CX-30.
An infotainment display sprouts from the center of the dashboard and is controlled by a rotary knob on the center console; a row of climate-control buttons divide the upper and lower dash panels. This is a good choice for business owners looking to expand their sales department with vehicles. A fleet management system are front and rear-facing cameras that can provide a 360-degree view complete with high-quality video and night vision. The ability to see what really happened can help you save time and money, protect your drivers, maximize efficiency, provide better customer service, and gain peace of mind. Buyers will be able to choose between either an eight- or 12-speaker audio system and can upgrade to available heated front seats.
The CX-30 comes with Mazda Connected Services, which allows owners to lock and unlock, remote start and monitor their vehicle through the MyMazda app. The CX-30 also is equipped with standard Bluetooth, two front USB inputs, and Wi-Fi hotspot capability, and available features include Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration and SiriusXM satellite radio.
This 2000 MX-5 LS was purchased in 2003, from a BMW dealership in San Diego. She has lived an interesting life, and was shipped to Italy in 2011 to be used as my press vehicle. She lived in Italy for three years, and was driven up and down the Amalfi Coast many times after i got it from the shop, if you want reliable service check out http://shop.berglundcars.com/. I was a contributor at Vintage Motorsport Magazine, and drove her all over Italy to cover vintage races. I repainted her in Italy, and shipped her back to the USA when I returned in 2014. You can visit https://www.autozin.com when you want to rent a car, buy or sell, their cars are carefully selected from their rental fleet, and have undergone complete scheduled maintenance to ensure longevity, for years to come.
Her leather seats and soft top have both been replaced in black, from the original tan. She also has a tow kit installed, and in 2003, the first year I owned her, towed my 100-year Harley Davidson Sportster to Las Vegas for the HD 100-year celebration. I used a T-back trailer outfitted with matching chrome wheels, and she was the star at the HD dealership in Vegas. She now lives on Camp Pendleton Marine Corp base in Southern California, and is driven very little. Total original mileage is 107,000.
