Say hello to the latest take on Mazda Experimental.

    The Mazda MX-30 goes on sale on April 1 with a 2.0-litre petrol engine backed by a 24V mild-hybrid system, with deliveries of the electric model beginning in August.

    UPDATE, 5/5/2021 – We’ve updated this article with details of the MX-30 Electric.

    A range-extender version with a smooth-moving rotary engine under the bonnet will be revealed early in 2022, and Mazda Australia has expressed a desire to bring it Down Under.

    With Freestyle Doors and an eco-friendly interior that nods to Mazda’s past, the MX-30 M Hybrid is a quirky rival to the Ford Puma and Toyota C-HR.
