The Mazda CX-30 is a compact crossover produced by Mazda. Based on the fourth generation Mazda Axela/Mazda3, it first debuted at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show to slot in between the CX-3 and the CX-5. The CX-30 has a four-wheel-drive system on the highest trim level and lightweight construction to improve performance and economy. It will be available for sale in late 2019.[2][1][3]

According to Naohito Saga, the CX-30's program manager, the new model is targeted to drivers who are still single or are married and starting a family in the U.S. Mazda chief designer Ryo Yanagisawa said that it will be more acceptable as a family car in Europe and Japan.[3] Saga also noted that Mazda named the vehicle CX-30 to avoid confusion with the China-only CX-4.[4][5][3]
