Mazda CX-30 2024: price and specs

Olek Novak

The popular small SUV is about to get a suite of updates to its lineup for 2024

Mazda’s CX-30 small SUV – which is about to undergo several updates to its lineup for 2024 – has become an integral part of the Japanese brand’s product slate since launching in Australia in 2020.

Slotted between the smaller CX-3 small SUV and the midsize CX-5, the CX-30 has developed its own niche in Mazda’s lineup and has quickly overtaken the once dominant Mazda 3 small car – with which it shares a platform and powertrains – in sales. 

The CX-30 has emerged as a popular choice among buyers who have praised its stylish design, fun driving dynamics and reasonably practical interior, making it a great all-rounder for many Aussies.

The CX-30 has fast cemented itself as a key part of Mazda’s local lineup

As of September this year, some 9581 CX-30s have been sold, which is less than the segment dominating MG ZS (23,152) but ahead of the likes of the GWM Haval Jolion (8327) and Kia Seltos (8240).

Within this article you’ll find out what the updated 2024 Mazda CX-30 costs in each grade, what equipment you get for the money, and how the lineup will look for the year ahead.

November 2023: Mazda announced updated CX-30 range 

Mazda Australia has announced a suite of updates for its CX-30 which will see the small SUV lose manual and mild-hybrid options but gain connectivity improvements, improved fuel efficiency – according to Mazda – and a corresponding increase in price.

The loss of the manual option and mild-hybrids means the model will remain automatic only, unsurprising news which follows the same update for the Mazda 3 earlier this year. 

As well as this, Mazda is headlining its update with the addition of a new model grade, the ‘GT SP’, set to replace the Touring SP which has also been dropped from the lineup which has also seen individual grades rise in price by between $1000 and $2000.

What does the new GT SP grade include?

The new GT SP grade will be available with both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive and will slot in between the Touring and top-spec Astina grades.

New to the CX-30 lineup is the GT SP variant, which replaces the Touring SP

As with Mazda’s other ‘SP’ branded models, the GT SP gains a more sporty appearance featuring black alloy wheels and front grille, as well as piano black mirror caps.

Inside, the grade also scores heating for its steering wheel and front seats, which come trimmed exclusively with the grade’s burgundy leather interior. 

In addition, the GT SP also receives a glass sunroof with power tilt and slide functionality.

Connectivity & Technology Updates

As well as the styling tweaks and interior updates, the new GT SP trim also receives wireless phone charging as well as wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, integrated with a new 10.25-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system. These connectivity changes are also standard on the Touring and Astina.

A number of tech and connectivity updates will debut in the CX-30 for 2024

A ‘Vision Tech Pack’ is also available as an option on every grade, except for the Astina which includes the full suite as standard. However, the package inclusions vary depending on the trim.

On the GT SP the pack includes a 360-degree camera,,driver monitoring, front cross traffic alert, cruising and traffic support. However, on Pure, Evolve and Touring grades, the pack also adds the 10.25-inch Mazda Connect screen, and front parking sensors for the Pure and Evolve.

A ‘Vision Tech Package’ will be optional on all variants except the top spec Astina

The package costs an additional $2000 for the Pure and Evolve grades, an additional $1800 in Touring trim, or an additional $1300 for the GT SP.

What engines are available for the CX-30?

Mazda says they have made updates to the 2.0-litre Skyactiv G engine which powers the front-wheel-drive G20 models.

Power outputs are unchanged at 114kW and 200Nm, however the engine is now claimed to deliver 6.3 litres per 100km, with CO2 emissions of 147g/km.

While the powertrain is unchanged, Mazda claims there are slight gains in efficiency for the 2.0-litre engine

Mazda says this is an improvement on both the previous iteration of the same engine (6.5L/100km), and also the e-Skyactiv G 2.0-litre mild hybrid engine paired with a 24-volt system (also 6.5L/100km), which is longer offered.

The 2.5-litre Skyactiv G powertrain – available on the Touring, GT SP and Astina – remains the same, delivering 139kW and 252Nm. This engine option comes with front-wheel-drive for the Touring, a choice of front- or all-wheel-drive for the GT SP, or all-wheel-drive only for the Astina. 

All models are now mated exclusively with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

What else is changing for the 2024 CX-30?

The updated lineup will also debut two new colours – Ceramic Metallic and Zircon Sand Metallic – with Sonic Silver discontinued.

With the manual discontinued, the CX-30 is now offered exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission

As well as this, the Astina is now only available with black leather, having previously had the option of white leather.

Servicing intervals are at  12-months or 15,000km (whichever comes first), compared to previous 10,000km intervals.

The CX-30 will follow most of Mazda’s range in now offering 15,000 or 12-month service intervals
