2020 Mazda CX-30 Unveiled in Geneva

Mazda chose the Geneva Auto Show to debut their latest model: The 2020 Mazda CX-30. Using the 2019 Mazda 3's architecture, the CX-30 will be positioned between the subcompact CX-3 and the CX-5 models. The CX-30's styling is more in line with the CX-5's cues, albeit with lower body cladding.

Fantastic looks. Stupid name.

It should be a CX-4, based on their current, logical naming scheme.

Naming it CX-30 reminds me of the confusing, less-intelligent names that Infiniti uses for their crossovers.

Yeah the name is stupid. But this thing is going to sell like hotcakes IMO. Between the beautiful interior and exterior, any small premium crossover over is going to be shaking in its boots. Makes me wonder if Mazda named it similarly to the one car it has its sights set on, i.e. the QX30.

Dave Tracy at Jalopnik nailed when he said, "Now Mazda is joining the club with its CX-30, giving the brand its own trio of small SUVs that can fit just inside one another like Russian Matryoshka dolls."

Pretty sure we've seen the last iteration of the 6.....for awhile at least.

Link to Mazda's site for the CX-30.
https://insidemazda.mazdausa.com/pre...n-mazda-cx-30/

Check out the Mild Hybrid System that will be available in the CX-30 with either the Skyactiv-G 2.0 or Skyactiv-X.

Last iteration? Doubt it. The 6 isn't a big seller, but isn't any worse than most of their other vehicles. Heck, the 6 outsold the CX-9 last year and has double sales of the CX-3. The Mazda 3 sells quite well, though.

Mazda's only real leader is the CX-5 which sells 5x as much as the CX-9 and 6.

The fact that Mazda opted to extensively refresh the 6 versus put it on the new platform certainly has me curious.(for all intent and purposes, the 2018 pretty much is a next-gen 6. You don't see things like new suspensions, powertrains, NVH improvements, and completely new interiors on typical mid-cycle refreshes.)

The CX30 looks great inside and out. Love how Mazda’s design language is evolving.

As for the next 6, I think Mazda is biding their time until they can introduce it on next gen architecture. The last 2 updates were pretty substantial and were significant upgrades. Had they done a FMC - most likely on a reworked version of the current platform - it would be been years behind the new 3 and now CX30. On the extreme end of the rumor scale, if the next 6 is on a shared RWD/AWD with Toyota, it could be a baby Lexus GS. One can dream... Mazda has been charging full steam ahead. It wouldn’t surprise me if they introduce a huge step into luxo territory with the next 6.

I hope not.

I get the attraction -- if you sell a $50k car with a 20% margin, you made $10 large. If you sell a $20k car with the same 20% margin, you only made $4 large.

But from the consumer point of view if you buy a $50k car with a 20% margin, you GOT a $40k car in terms of value (the rest went into the manufacturer's pocket.) If you buy the $20k car with the same margin you got a $16k car in terms of value. You lost a LOT less.

If the $20k car does everything you want it to do then the other $30 large is simply bragging. I have no quarrel with that provided I can opt out.

Sadly, that's getting harder to do. If Mazda makes it impossible I'll buy something else, even if it's used, and they lose the business entirely.

$20k with a $4k margin is better than zero.

^^^^

I don’t disagree with that. The margins are what’s important. If Mazda can balance the “near luxury equation” (making vehicles that feel like they compete with Acura, Volvo, lower end German marques at “mid class prices”) ... it’s a win-win for us. Maybe throw in a limited run flagship car just to screw with the Tier 1 guys and keep them nervous.
