Mazda will launch its all-new CX-30 SUV in Australia early next year with a strong line-up that is packed with features, and sneaks in just below its bigger SUV siblings on price.

Sitting between the CX-3 and CX-5 in terms of size, the CX-30 is closer to its mid-size sibling for cost, with an eight-variant line-up starting at just under $30K.

Currently the CX-3 range starts at $22,710 and tops out at $40,350, while the cheapest CX-5 wears a $30,880 sticker price.

In keeping with Mazda’s new naming nomenclature, the G20 variants are powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder SkyActiv-G engine.

The smaller of the two motors on offer, the G20 produces 114kW and 200Nm, which is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Combined fuel consumption is claimed to be 6.5L/100km, while a 0-100km/h sprint takes 10.2 seconds, according to Mazda.

The more expensive G25 variants have a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated engine under the bonnet, good for 139kW and 252Nm via a six-speed automatic transmission. This engine can be configured as an all-wheel drive, but Mazda expects just eight percent of customers to do so.

Thanks to the extra power, Mazda claims the G25 will sprint to 100km/h from a standstill in 8.7 seconds as a FWD (9.1 seconds as a AWD), but fuel economy takes a hit, with the combined cycle efficiency listed as 6.8L/100km.

Starting the CX-30 range is the G20 Pure FWD, which will cost $29,990.

The entry-level variant comes with 16-inch wheels, a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8.8-inch infotainment screen. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and includes keyless start, blindspot monitoring, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, radar cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, forward obstruction warning, LED headlamps and tail-lights, and cloth seat trims as standard.

Next in the range is the G20 Evolve, which starts at $31,490 and adds 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control with rear vents, and a leather-wrapped gearshift knob and steering wheel. Stepping up into a G20 Touring ($34,990) brings advanced keyless entry, front parking sensors, black leather seat trim, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory function. Top of the G20 offerings is the Astina variant at $38,990.

The cheapest G25 variant is the Touring, which costs $36,490 in FWD guise and $38,490 for an AWD. The G25 Touring and G20 Evolve share the same features.

Topping the CX-30 range is the G25 Astina, which costs $41,490 as FWD and $43,490 as AWD. This grade adds a 360-degree camera, cruising and traffic support, driver monitoring, and front cross-traffic alert. Leather trim for the seats is also optional. Unlike its G20 sibling, the G25 Astina comes with a powered glass sunroof.

Mazda expects the 2.0-litre engine to account for 75 percent of CX-30 sales, with 92 percent of all CX-30 buyers opting for a front-drive layout.
