The Mazda MX-30 Mild Hybrid has just launched, which means Mazda’s first ever mild hybrid is finally in showrooms across Australia.
The new-generation MX-30 Mild Hybrid is sleek, stylish and packed to the brim with features never before seen from Mazda. The MX-30 is Mazda’s first venture into the mild hybrid world, with added specs and a design unlike anything else on the market. This car is a worthy introduction to the future of the eco driven auto industry and is undoubtedly designed with the future in mind. But why choose this car over similar powertrains? Here we discuss 5 reasons Australians should put the Mazda MX-30 Mild Hybrid at the top of their list when considering their next vehicle.
Design Driven Interior
The first thing you notice about the new Mazda MX-30 is its design. Rather than the more usual rectangular tail lights, its lights are arranged in a cylindrical shape. This combined with the three-tone exterior colour scheme, and doors give the vehicle a striking presence on the road.
The MX-30 was created with design at the forefront, with the highest quality modern composition and sleek colourways in mind. This is a car for the future, and the contemporary interior supports this in every capacity.
The design language of the MX-30 provides a link to Mazda’s past while still emphasising the story that is being laid for the future of the brand, starting with the “freestyle” rear-hinged doors strongly reminiscent of the RX-8.
It’s simple to get in and out of the cabin thanks to the wide-opening doors, which makes you question why more manufacturers don’t do it. The front doors open at an angle of 82 degrees, or virtually square, while the back doors open to an angle of 80 degrees, giving plenty of room to hop in and out.
The MX-30 features Mazda’s usual entertainment extras and connectivity, with a 7-inch touchscreen for controls and convenience, plus heaps of additional functionalities like a floating centre console.
Comprehensive safety suite
With a 5 star ANCAP safety rating, the Mazda MX-30 has plenty of safety features that come standard across the 2021 Mazda MX-30 M Hybrid range include:
- Ten airbags throughout the cabin
- blind-spot monitoring
- driver attention alert
- lane-keeping assist
- forward collision warning
- auto high beam assist
- active cruise control with Stop & Go function
- rear parking sensors
- reversing camera
- rear cross-traffic alert
- autonomous emergency braking (AEB)
- traffic sign recognition
- tyre pressure monitoring
Mazda has always been committed to safety, and the newest Mazda is no exception. You can feel safe behind the wheel in the new mild hybrid.
Freedom of choice
The price range for the three models of MX-30 range from $33,990 to $40,990, so as to accommodate any budget.
There is a full range of colourways to choose from including:
- Ceramic 3-Tone Metallic
- Polymetal Grey 3-Tone Metallic
- Soul Red Crystal 3-Tone Metallic
- Arctic White
- Polymetal Grey
- Ceramic Metallic
- Machine Grey Metallic
- Jet Black Mica
The hybrid interior features eco-friendly cork trim. This is an exciting and stylish touch, and considering the sustainable nature of this choice, it’s clear that this is a shift forward in the ethos and values of the Mazda brand. Not only this, but the cabin is fully synthetic, with recycled PET materials, giving a very avant-garde feel.
With a willing and competent engine, the engine noise is minimal without the jarring or harsh initial revs. The gearbox is silky smooth at any speed and works instantly, whether you’re on or off the throttle.
The MX-30 is so smooth that you might not notice these subtle changes in any significant way other than how simply and easily it runs. The MX-30 performs as expected with no hassle. It’s a well-balanced and comfy all-arounder with the ability to deliver what purchasers desire from an SUV.
With a 2L engine which includes a six-speed transmission, the MX-30 is a powerful hybrid with a high-tech FWD system.
The Final Word
Built for the young professional, this car thrives in its natural environment of the city, with specs to optimise a busy, inner-city lifestyle. The MX-30 comes with a 5-year unlimited warranty, as well as 5 years of roadside assistance. It is a worthy entry into the sustainable world of the automotive industry and a deserving contender for your next choice in car.
