Australian pricing and specifications for the mild-hybrid version of the 2021 Mazda MX-30 have been confirmed ahead of the small SUV's local arrival on 1 April 2021.
The MX-30 M Hybrid will be offered in three specification grades, with pricing kicking off from $33,990 before on-road costs and topping out at $40,990 before on-road costs.
It lands ahead of its all-electric sibling, which is due to touch down in Mazda showrooms before the end of 2021.
Under the bonnet of the MX-30 M Hybrid is a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine paired with Mazda’s own ‘M Hybrid’ mild-hybrid system, sending 114kW and 200Nm to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
According to Mazda, claimed fuel consumption on the combined cycle is rated at 6.4L/100km, with combined CO2 emissions of 150 grams per kilometre.
To improve efficiency, the mild-hybrid system works to recover energy typically 'lost' under deceleration, as well as shutting down the engine as the decelerating car comes to a stop.
The MX-30 debuts a bold new design direction for Mazda, with centre-opening, pillar-less Freestyle doors, an all-new floating centre console with a new secondary 7.0-inch screen used to manage the climate system, and interior trim elements manufactured from recycled materials, including heritage cork.
The entry-level offering in the range, the G20e Evolve, offers 18-inch alloy wheels, auto-folding exterior mirrors, automatic LED headlamps, automatic wipers, an 8.8-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a head-up display, satellite navigation, an eight-speaker sound system, DAB+ digital radio, and dual-zone climate control as standard.
The 8.8-inch central infotainment screen and aforementioned lower climate control screen are also joined by a 7.0-inch TFT driver display in the instrument cluster.
The seats are trimmed in black and grey cloth, while the steering wheel and gear shifter are leather-wrapped.
Standard safety equipment from the base MX-30 up includes 10 airbags, blind-spot monitoring, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, a reverse camera, a turn-across traffic alert and traffic sign recognition.
The next grade up, the G20e Touring, is priced from $36,490 before on-road costs and adds keyless entry, auto-dimming side mirrors with two-position memory, seats finished in Mazda's white 'Maztex' faux leather and grey cloth, a power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar adjustment and two-position memory, and illuminated vanity mirrors.
Finally, the flagship G20e Astina jumps to $40,990 before on-road costs and offers 18-inch 'bright' alloy wheels, heated exterior mirrors, a sunroof, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, brown Maztex seats with black cloth centres, a 360-degree camera, adaptive LED headlamps, driver monitoring, a front cross-traffic alert, Cruising and Traffic Support, and front parking sensors.
If buyers want to add the same safety and driver assistance featured on the Astina to the two lower grades, they can pay $1500 for the optional Vision Technology pack, which adds the 360-degree camera, driver monitoring, Cruising and Traffic Support, a front cross-traffic alert and front parking sensors.
Astina shoppers can opt for the MX-30's unique three-tone colour scheme for an additional cost, while all variants are available with two optional premium exterior colours, Polymetal Grey Metallic or Machine Grey Metallic, for an extra $495.
Standard, no-cost colours include Ceramic Metallic, Jet Black Mica and Arctic White.
Size-wise, the MX-30 closely mirrors Mazda's existing CX-30 small SUV, but with marginal differences.
It measures 4395mm long, 1545mm tall and 1795mm wide (excluding mirrors), with 180mm of ground clearance – slightly taller, and with 5mm more ground clearance than the CX-30.
Meanwhile, the boot offers 311 litres of cargo space with the second row in place, whereas the CX-30 boasts 317 litres.
The MX-30 M Hybrid is covered by Mazda's five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty and scheduled servicing totals $1942 for five years or 50,000km of coverage.
The 2021 Mazda MX-30 M Hybrid will go on sale in Australia on 1 April 2021.
