Mazda CX-30 G25 Astina SUV 2023 Review

Mazda CX-30 – I have just driven the stylish and comfortable Mazda CX-30. It’s an ideal sized, urban SUV and comes in a range of models and engine options.

The model I drove was the G25 Astina in both front wheel and all wheel drive.

The Astina comes packed with almost every luxury, comfort, and safety feature you could want.

Inside its typically Mazda quality and layout.

Little luxuries like heated front leather seats and steering wheel, dual zone air conditioning with rear vents, multiple USB ports and the vision technology pack are all included as standard.

The G25 comes with a 2.5 litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that has maximum power of 139 kilowatts and maximum torque of 252 newton metres. It comes a six speed sports automatic transmission.

This combination is smooth and easy to drive around town or on longer trips. Its also relatively economical as well. I would choose the all wheel drive version for the extra grip in wet conditions.

Its one of those cars that you slip into easily and just feels right.

The Mazda CX-30 G25 Astina is priced from $47,729 plus the usual costs.

Also look at:

Small to Mid sized AWD SUVs are everywhere. The Urban segment is even more competitive. It’s a matter of choosing one that suits you best. Almost every manufacturer has one.

Buyers could look at Toyota Corolla Cross, Kia Seltos, Subaru Crosstrek, Haval Jolion HEV, Audi Q2, Citroen C4, Peugeot 2008 GT, and Nissan QASHQAI.
