Mazda distributors Bermaz Motors officially launch the all-new Mazda CX-30 earlier today. The firm had opened up the order books for the new model as early as November last year, followed by an early preview right around the Christmas holidays.
Whilst the specifications and variant count we reported earlier remain unchanged, prices have, albeit slightly. As reported prior, we're given two engines across three model variants.
Things start with the familiar two-litre SkyActiv-G engine delivering 163bhp and 213Nm in the base-spec 2.0G and mid-spec 2.0G High variants. The range-topping CX-30 1.8D High variant, on the other hand, gets a 1.8-litre version of Mazda’s torque-rich Skyactiv-D diesel engine instead, good for 114bhp and 270Nm of twist.
All powertrain options are paired with 6-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission to drive the front wheels – there is no AWD option at the present moment.
Offered as a fully imported (CBU) model for now, the CX-30 is brimmed with plenty of features and amenities on board, a number of which standing as premiums in its size – and price – category.
Highlights include a sunroof, automated tailgate, full-LED lighting, as well as a dual-zone climate control, reverse camera and the latest Mazda Connect infotainment suite that boasts both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Naturally, the availability of these features differ from spec-to-spec.
On the more technical front, all variants are brimmed with Mazda's i-Stop engine idling system and G-Vectoring Control (GVC) Plus suites. Active safety features available in higher end variants will include Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM).
As for prices, there seems to be a slight reduction from the previously reported figures – likely caused by fluctuating currency exchange rates. Again, the keyword here is ‘slight’.
Things start from RM143,059 for the entry-level CX-30 2.0G, from RM164,059 for the mid-range CX-30 2.0G High, and from RM172,943.60 for the range-topping CX-30 1.8D High (Peninsula Malaysia prices excluding insurance).
Of course, like the bulk of its current offerings, Bermaz Motor will bundle in both a 5-year or 100,000km warranty and free maintenance coverage for added peace of mind.
