The upcoming 2022 Mazda MX-30 is the brand’s first all-electric model. This SUV will offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain as well, so you will have a couple of buying options. It is a subcompact SUV with a sharp design and coupe-like roofline. The rear part looks more like a hatchback and it is recognizable by Mazda’s design language. Most of the details are still not available, unfortunately.
However, we know which battery will be in the offer and much more. New MX-30 model will go on sale in the first quarter of 2021. Mazda is returning the rotary engine in the United States, so MX-30 could become an instant hit. Here’s everything you need to know about this arriving SUV.
Mazda MX-30 Design
The forthcoming 2022 Mazda MX-30 is the brand-new model. However, its design won’t be something completely new. Like any other brand’s SUV, the MX-30 model will wear the same design language, which comes as no surprise. The electric SUV will be similarly sized to the CX-30 and CX-3 models. However, the MX nomenclature gives us hope to see something that is closer to MX-5 Miata in terms of styling.
Aerodynamics will be impressive and MX-30 SUV will look sharp and modern. It is a subcompact model with a coupe-like roofline and hatchback-like rear section. The side profile looks sporty, but the front fascia is surprisingly rugged. Still, everything on this model looks upright and modern.
On the inside, the new 2022 Mazda MX-30 will deploy natural materials, including breathable fabric upholstery. Most of the materials are made from recycled plastic bottles. The front passengers will enjoy ample legroom, but rear passengers could find longer trips very unpleasant. The coupe-like roofline provides generous headroom in both rows, which is good.
We like the floating center console and generally, the cabin design is unique and modern. Mazda will offer a new climate-control system, a larger infotainment touchscreen, and plenty of standard equipment. Some interior details are not available yet, so we are waiting for Mazda to make it official.
The all-new 2022 Mazda MX-30 is bringing the rotary engine back to the U.S. The subcompact SUV will offer both plug-in hybrid and all-electric variants. However, exact specs are not revealed yet. In Japan and Europe, MX-30 offers a 35.5-kWh battery pack with a range of 124 miles on a single charge.
Reportedly, a model for the United States will introduce a larger battery. The front-wheel-drive will be offered as standard, so we guess the AWD system is optional. It will be interesting to see how the new MX-30 performs, especially the US-spec model.
2022 Mazda MX-30 Release Date, Price
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 will most likely hit the U.S. dealerships in the first quarter of 2022. This model will also arrive in Japan and Europe. However, its price is not available at the moment. There will be four trim levels, but Mazda could deliver a surprise or two. The Japanese manufacturer will reveal more details in the coming months.
