Mazda CX-30 and 3 models receives upgrades and mild-hybrid engines for 2021 update.
Mazda is introducing updates to the CX-30 SUV and 3 small hatch and sedan for the end of 2021, bringing mild hybrid engine technology and increased specification for most models.
The biggest update is the new G20e M Hybrid variants, which essentially uses the same 2.0-litre mild hybrid engine as the new MX-30. The motor produces 114kW and 200Nm of torque via a six-speed auto to the front wheels just like the existing G20 engine but the 24v mild hybrid system is claimed to bring improved efficiency.
The new M Hybrid variants kick off from the Evolve grade but pricing is yet to be announced. A Vision Technology package is available, adding adaptive cruise control with stop and go function, driver monitoring, 360-degree camera, and front cross-traffic alert.
SP Vision Technology is also available on the existing CX-30 Touring grade, bringing burgundy leather seats and trims, black 18-inch alloy wheels and matching black side mirror caps, and black interior accents.
Lower in the pecking order is the G25 Evolve SP that replaces the Evolve. It now comes with black 18-inch alloys and mirror caps, a black grille up front, and black fabric trim interior with red highlights.
Other additions are a leather-wrapped steering wheel and matching gear shifter for the Pure, an electric sunroof for the Astina G20, and Skyactiv-X badges for the X20 Astina. The colour palette has also widened, with Platinum Quartz Metallic (a silver-gold paint) and white leather optional on all colours.
