New Powertrain And Look For Mazda CX-30 And Mazda 3

Mazda boosts customer choice with a new powertrain, new grades and added features to strengthen appeal of its award-winning Mazda CX-30 and Mazda3. 

Building on the already feature-packed offering that has won both models praise and accolades, this update will see Mazda CX-30, 2021 Wheels Car of the Year, and Mazda3, 2020 World Car Design of the Year, add the G20e M Hybrid engine and a stylish SP grade to their respective line-ups.

Mazda Australia Marketing Director, Alastair Doak, explains the update is key in delivering customers the latest and best technologies, and more choice to tailor to their lifestyle needs.

“Constant evolution and improvement is fundamental to Mazda’s ethos; it’s so important to pass on the benefits of new technologies to our customers as soon and as often as we can,” said Doak.

“These updates expand our range and product offering further, giving our customers more opportunity to find their perfect fit.”

Headlining updates to both models, Mazda CX-30 and Mazda3 will offer enhanced efficiency, adding a new powertrain and advanced safety technology in G20e Evolve M Hybrid Vision Technology.

Debuted in Mazda MX-30, e-Skyactiv G combines the virtues of Skyactiv G with the M Hybrid system to provide improved fuel efficiency, a smoother transition from idling stops and a more refined driving feel.

Each model line will bolster safety and style, adding a new SP Vision Technology grade that pairs Mazda’s most advanced i-Activsense features with interior and exterior visual highlights to define a stylish new grade

Mazda CX-30 Touring is more customisable than ever; the SP Vision Technology variant is available with a choice of 2.0-litre, 2.5-litre or 2.5-litre AWD. It adds Burgundy leather trim, black dash and door card accents, black metallic 18-alloy wheels and black side mirror caps.

Mazda3’s most popular Evolve grade will be renewed as G25 Evolve SP. Adding a sporty flair to hatch or sedan, the new SP variant adds black exterior mirrors, black 18-inch alloy wheels, black grille and black cloth seats with red accents.

Further changes across the nameplates have been made to boost equipment levels and customisation, including the addition of Platinum Quartz paint.

The updated Mazda CX-30 and Mazda3 are currently available for pre-order.
