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

This fancy trim gets leather seats with electric adjustment for the driver, brown interior accents, a heated steering wheel and a Bose stereo. It starts to get rather pricey, though.

You won’t find a turbocharger on this 2.0-litre engine, so you really have to thrash it before it feels as strong as its 183bhp would suggest. CO2 emissions are good, but you’ll have to drive very sedately to get much more than 35mpg in the real world.
