All-new Mazda CX-30 Review - It's certainly pretty, but is it worth it?

Mazda has recently launched the CX-30 locally. As the brand looks to move upmarket and compete with the premium German manufacturers (Audi, BMW, Merc etc.) it's likely to hit some resistance from those brands. Does the CX-30 have enough going for it to push aside those naysayers and carve out a slice of the Premium Crossover segment?

The Mazda CX-30 has arrived on the South African market and is gunning for a slice of the stylish crossover pie, which now that I think about it sounds like a fusion dish at a hipster Asian restaurant.

Anyway, it's a space that VW recently entered with the T-Roc, but the CX-30's pricing is very curious indeed. For instance, you can buy a Mazda CX-5 for less money, a substantially larger and more practical car. You can also buy a Mazda3 for significantly less money.

So, why would you buy a CX-30? Well, we sent our video guy Ciro De Siena to find out.'s Youtube channel is powered by Budget Insurance. For an instant quote, click here.
