Mazda has revealed the new CX-30 SUV, which sits between the CX-3 and CX-5, at the Geneva motor show.
The Nissan Qashqai rival is based on the recently launched Mazda 3 hatch and is described as a new "core model" in the Japanese firm’s line-up. It will go on sale in the UK later this year powered by a range of petrol hybrid and diesel engines.
The compact crossover features Mazda’s distinctive Kodo design language and will also use the firm’s latest-generation engines, including the Skyactiv-X compression ignition powertrain. The firm says the CX-30 will be a global model that will be "made at key global plants".
All of the petrol engines offered in the machine will be mild-hybrid units, featuring a motor driven by a 24V battery. The CX-30 will also be offered with Mazda's Skyactiv-D diesel engine. The exact powertrain line-up for the UK has yet to be confirmed. All models will feature all-wheel drive balanced by a central torque distribution system and six-speed petrol and automatic gearboxes will be available.
