The Mazda CX-30 first made its world premiere earlier this year at the Geneva International Motor Show and will slot between the CX-3 and CX-5 models currently on offer in the lineup.

It will indirectly compete with the Mazda3, providing a unique option for buyers in the somewhat already crowded compact SUV segment.

Set for SA

The model being featured boasts the 2.0-litre SkyActiv-X engine that produces 132kW with a top speed of 204km/h. Fuel consumption comes in at respectable 5.9l/100km. Not bad for a compact SUV.
