More to Love: New 2022 Mazda CX-30

Now in its third model year, the new Mazda CX-30 is gaining a reputation for being the subcompact SUV for those who like to drive. And J.D. Power gave the 2022 Mazda CX-30 the 2022 U.S. ALG Residual Value award for the best residual value in the subcompact utility category! That means that the Mazda CX-30 retains the highest amount of retail value (MSRP) after three years compared to other subcompact SUVs. Besides being safe, reliable, fun to drive and stylish to boot, purchasing a new Mazda CX-30 is an investment you can count on when it comes time to sell or trade-in.

Standard i-Activ AWD

Starting in the 2022 model year, all new Mazda CX models now come with standard Mazda i-Activ All-Wheel-Drive (AWD). And for the 2022 Mazda CX-30, that makes the base Mazda CX-30 2.5 S about $1,200 cheaper than the outgoing 2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 S with AWD!

Mazda i-Activ AWD is no ordinary AWD system. i-Activ AWD monitors weight distribution between the wheels continuously and nearly instantly adjusts the amount of power going to each wheel to optimize driving performance and safety. The new Mazda CX-30 also pairs the AWD system with Off-Road Traction Assist and the signature Mazda G-Vectoring Control Plus.

New Carbon Edition

Following the popularity of the 2021 Mazda Carbon Edition models, Mazda adds that stylish option to the 2022 Mazda CX-30 lineup. Featuring the exclusive Polymetal Gray exterior color and striking red leather interior, the new Mazda CX-30 Carbon Edition gets 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, gloss-black exterior accents, and all the features of the Mazda CX-30 2.5 S Preferred trim. The 2022 Mazda CX-5 2.5 S Preferred and Mazda CX-30 Carbon Edition include:

  • Leatherette seats
  • Heated front seats
  • 8-way power driver’s seat with lumbar and memory
  • Power moonroof
  • Gloss black grille
  • Memory and tilt for the door mirrors

Turbocharged Power and Performance

Upgrade to the new Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo, Turbo Premium, or Turbo Premium Plus to get the extra oomph and driving excitement that comes with the Mazda Skyactiv-G® 2.5 Turbo engine with up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. The 2022 Mazda CX-30 Turbo models feature enhanced performance and top-of-the-line amenities – and the option to buy the exclusive Polymetal Gray exterior color. The new 2022 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo includes all features of the new Mazda CX-30 Preferred, plus:

  • TURBO badging
  • Chrome interior accents
  • Frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Gloss black heated door mirrors

Add all of these features with the 2022 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo Premium package:

  • Heated steering wheel with paddle shifters
  • Leather seats
  • LED head- and taillights
