2020 Mazda CX-30 Coming To America Through The LA Auto Show

Mazda’s mysterious debut for the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show is the CX-30. The compact crossover has received its U.S. visa and will be presented on November 20, at 1:20 p.m. PT (4:20 p.m. EST / 22:30 CET), at the official press conference that will be live streamed.

Slotting between the CX-3 and CX-5, which start at $20,390 and $24,350, respectively, it’s the second model to adopt the latest evolution of the Japanese brand’s sharp Kodo design language, after the Mazda3.

Production of the CX-30 takes place in Mexico, at the Salamanca plant in Guanajuato. While specs for the U.S. market have yet to be announced, it’s expected to retain the 2.5-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine from its Mexican counterpart (and the Mazda3), where it puts out 186 hp (189 PS / 139 kW) and 186 lb-ft (252 Nm) of torque.

Other powertrains could be offered, as Motortrend recently uncovered a filing on the California Air Resources Board (ARB) website that listed the 2020 CX-30 with two engine options, a 2.0-liter four offered with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission and a 2.5-liter four paired exclusively to the latter. However, the magazine did point out too that it’s very likely that the smaller unit will only be available in Canada with the United States getting the 2.5L unit only.

Unlike the CX-30 sold south of the U.S. border, this one will offer all-wheel drive from launch.

Over in Mexico, the CX-30 can be had from 424,900 pesos, which equals to $22,139 at the current exchange rates. It’s offered in two trim levels named the i Sport and i Grand Touring (454,900 pesos / $23,702), and gets standard 18-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, dual-zone climate control, infotainment system with smartphone integration and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and others.

The 2020 CX-5 goes on sale this month and will be on display at the event in the City of Angels as well, alongside the 2020 CX-9.
