The CX-30 was the second best-selling vehicle produced by Mazda in 2022 with over 50,000 units sold. The subcompact crossover SUV is based on the extremely popular Mazda3, and it is built to stand in between the CX-3 and CX-5 in terms of size.

The CX-30, like the Mazda3 it is based on, has received near-perfect reviews from critics due to its great list of standard and available features at an extremely enticing price point. Are you looking to put one of these subcompact crossovers in your driveway this year?

2023 Mazda CX-30 2.5 S

The base model of this car is the CX-30 2.5 S. This base model is priced extremely competitively with a starting MSRP of $22,950. For that price, you get a 2.5L four-cylinder engine capable of producing 191 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.

What really makes this base model stand out from the crowd is its standard all-wheel drive. According to Mazda, this all-wheel drive setup doesn’t harm any fuel economy numbers either, with this CX-30 getting an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway out of a standard, non-hybrid engine.

The CX-30 2.5 S is full of great standard features including, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic power windows, remote keyless entry, push-button start, cruise control, and Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto integration.

This smartphone connectivity is made possible through an 8.8-inch infotainment system display. Safety features for the base CX-30 are great as well, with adaptive cruise control, lane keeps assist, high beam control, driver attention alert, and dynamic stability control all listed as standard features.

Just like the base model, this CX-30 is only available with all-wheel drive, and the turbo hardly touches fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

As far as standard features, this model of CX-30 is fully loaded with front and rear parking sensors, 360 view monitor, traffic jam assist, heated steering wheel, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a rear power liftgate, leather-trimmed sport seats, and a blind spot monitoring system.
