Positioned as Mazda’s entry-level crossover, the CX-30 has been around since 2020. After debuting with standard FWD, all models now get AWD in Canada. Customers can choose between a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 155 horsepower, a 2.5-litre variant rated at 186 horsepower, or a turbocharged 2.5-litre mill putting out as much as 250 horsepower. The CX-30 is not as generous as the competition when it comes to cargo capacity and rear-seat space.
