Review

If you’re after a plush-feeling SUV with tidy handling and low CO2 emissions, the Mazda CX-30 should definitely be on your shortlist. Its real strength lies in its ability to feel as luxurious as premium brands in this class at a much cheaper price. Just remember that rear space is tight and the boot isn’t anything to write home about, either.

get the best price

The most obvious change over SE-L Lux is the addition of 18in alloy wheels and gloss black detailing on the grille and roof pillars. Look closer and you’ll see adaptive LED headlights, a powered tailgate and a sunroof.

Despite being a sizeable 2.0-litres in capacity, this engine produces a meagre 120bhp, not much more than 1.0-litre turbocharged rivals. Performance is alright if you’re prepared to work it hard.
