Headlining the latest updates is the introduction of the GT SP grade, available in both FWD and AWD. Slotting neatly between Touring and flagship Astina specification, GT SP gains a sleeker, more sporty appearance with exterior styling enhancements in the form of black alloy wheels, a black front grill and mirror caps finished in piano black for.

Inside, both the steering wheel and front seats are heated as standard, while the elegant Burgundy leather is complemented with the fitment of a glass sunroof with powered tilt and slide function. Wireless phone charging is joined by wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, both of which are integrated seamlessly into the vibrant 10.25-inch Mazda Connect infotainment screen.

These connectivity enhancements are also fitted as standard to Touring and Astina model grades, while the Vision Technology Pack is available as an option on all variants – Pure, Evolve, Touring and GT SP – with the exception of Astina, which already includes the equipment as standard.

On GT SP the Vision Technology Pack offers 360-degree View Monitor, Driver Monitoring, Front Cross Traffic Alert (FCTA) and Cruising & Traffic Support (CTS). For Pure, Evolve and Touring grades, the pack also includes the 10.25-inch Mazda Connect screen and front parking sensors (Pure and Evolve).

The front-wheel drive G20 models benefit from a new 114 kW, 200Nm 2.0-litre Skyactiv G engine which now returns 6.3 litres per 100km and CO2 emissions of 147g/km – confidently improving upon the efficiency credentials of the 2.0-litre Skyactiv G (6.5l/100km, 152g/km) and e-Skyactiv G 2.0-litre M Hybrid (6.5l/100km, 148g/km) units previously offered*.

The G25 2.5-litre Skyactiv G is unchanged, offering a brawny 139 kW of power and 252Nm, with the option of all-wheel drive in both GT SP and Astina specifications. All models are exclusively paired to the slick-shifting 6-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic transmission.

Two new paint colours also join the line-up, replacing Sonic Silver – Ceramic Metallic and the unique Zircon Sand Metallic hue, which is already available on CX-5 and MX-5. Supple black leather also replaces the white upholstery on Astina models. 

In line with recent updates to the Skyactiv-G servicing, all new Mazda CX-30 models also benefit from a 12-month or 15,000km interval – whichever comes soonest – offering even greater value for money.

Commenting on the updated Mazda CX-30, Vinesh Bhindi, Managing Director of Mazda Australia said: “An enduring hit among Australian buyers, the latest changes to the Mazda CX-30 range make it more appealing, not only in terms of connectivity, but also with an elegant new model grade and efficiency gains that broaden its repertoire as a much-loved, multi-talented compact SUV.”
