The perfect crossover especially for the price

I recently purchased a 2022 CX-30 Premium Trim with metal grey metallic exterior. Things that I really like: engine not too big not too small, leather interior, gauges and buttons for everything, Bose 12 speaker sound system, heads up display, plus dozen’s of other features. Things that I do not like: nothing - absolutely nothing.

A Surprising High Tech AWD Driving Machine

Recently purchased a new 2022 CX-30 Select and have 200 miles on it so far. First the dislikes: Poor placement of cup holders and USB ports; cabin noise (I do have Mazda roof racks and I am coming from a very quiet prius); poorly indexed user manual; annoying safety alarms; odd location of valet key access point in door handle and small buttons on the key fob; poor gas mileage for a small car; slight hesitation on moving from stop; cannot tow anything (per user manual); only 1.25 “ trailer hitch available. What I do Like: Drivability- feels like a sports car on windy country roads; love the styling inside and out - exterior sets it a bit apart from all the others while the inside feels luxurious; the entertainment center is NOT touch screen which I like and well organized/easy to navigate with two large knobs. While driving home I could not get my phone to connect via apple car play - could not find anything in the user manual index to walk me through this. I also was freaked out a bit as headlights switched between high and low beams on their own. Several buttons labeled with icons that I could not decipher. So I decided to read the manual starting on page one. Glad I did as I learned the headlight system includes a feature that automatically adjusts to the lighting conditions - that you can easily turn off (I decided that I like it). To connect my phone the first time I had to tap the start engine button once to get into ACC mode and set it up - connection now not an issue. Learned how to adjust the driver seat and steering wheel for proper fit - first time I have ever done that and it really makes a difference (did the same procedure on my other cars as well). Automatic windshield wipers work to perfection as it has rained all week and I have not had to touch the wiper knob since leaving the dealership. Well-designed infant seat attachment points in the rear. I downloaded the Mazda App that allows you to start, shut off, open/close windows remotely (three year free trial) and get some info like fuel, mpg, and other info remotely from your car. In summary, a fun car to drive, practical hatchback with AWD, and stylish enough inside and out to stand apart from the other CUVs out there at one of the few under $30K in today’s market. **Update - I noticed the ride was a bit rough. Thanks to the Mazda app I easily checked the tire pressure and was surprised to see all tires were well above 40 psi - much higher than the recommended tire pressure of 36 psi. Lowered down to 36 and that did the trick.

I'm not a Mazda fan but I have been looking and testing cars everyday for two weeks. I had to replace my moms car, a 1995 BMW 12 cylinder 850Ci, and I have test driven BMW, Kia, Hyundai, Buick, Honda, Lexus, Nissan....etc basically everything out there. Today I bought the Mazda CX 30 Turbo Premium after all. It was priced at 34.5k. A little more than I wanted to spend but jeez the ride is smooth. The interior is well appointed and very comfy. The turbo seems to have enough power to pass easily. It's a four cylinder turbo what do you seriously expect? If you want a racey SUV get the Mercedes V8 Bi turbo. If you're looking for a modestly priced, very well appointed, great commuter, mini SUV then at least test drive this Crossover. It came with a power tail gate as well. The bang for the buck is by far better than any other 2022 in it's class that I test drove in my two week quest. I'm impressed and happy when I drive it.

Claustrophobic ride

Liked the way it handles and rides but really dislike having to duck my head to look to see if the light is green. If you are small this car may be for you. The car is chalk full of blind spots. Not fun to drive when you are constantly worried about proper visibility. Functionality is sacrificed for style. For example the back window should be about twice the size.
