Mazda Canada announced trims and packaging for the 2023 Mazda CX-30.
For 2023, the available naturally aspirated Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre engine has been improved in both performance and efficiency. Compared to the previous model year, this engine has an increase of five horsepower and a combined fuel economy rating that is 0.7 L/100km lower. These performance and efficiency figures are achieved with any fuel grade. The 2023 CX-30 will continue to feature standard i-Activ all-wheel drive, which enhances the crossover’s dynamic performance.
The recipient of an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award the previous model year (with optional front crash prevention), all 2023 CX-30 models have been updated to be compliant with IIHS’ newest safety protocols. These enhancements include the addition of rear side airbags, rear seat belt pre-tensioners, B and C-pillar improvements, and a shin pad to front and rear door trims.
CX-30 comes with the latest i-Activ AWD system as standard, which enhances performance by focusing on improved driving dynamics, handling, and vehicle control that help the driver enjoy the experience on most terrains or in most conditions. Engaging driving dynamics are engineered into every aspect of vehicle development to help create a connection between car and driver. Mazda’s unique i-Activ AWD system continuously monitors weight distribution and shifts power to the appropriate wheels, providing drivers a near instant response to inputs. In addition, all CX-30 models are equipped with G-Vectoring Control Plus and Off-Road Traction Assist as standard.
The CX-30 GX features Mazda’s efficient Skyactiv-G 2.0L engine, producing 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, paired with a quick-shifting six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode and sport mode.
CX-30 GX models come standard with essential i-Activsense safety features to support everyday driving, including Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Every CX-30 model also includes complimentary Mazda Connected Services for two years, providing the ability for the owner to monitor and control the state of the vehicle remotely by logging into the MyMazda app, with features such as remote start, locking/unlocking the doors remotely, and sending directions to the Mazda Navigation system (if equipped).
The well-appointed interior features an 8.8-inch center display with the latest Mazda Connect infotainment system that can be controlled with the multi-function commander knob and is integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other amenities include a Mazda Harmonic Acoustics sound system with 8-speakers, dual USB inputs, seven-inch LCD multi-information gauge display, push button start, remote keyless illuminated entry system, black cloth seats, heated front seats, rear armrest with cup holders, rearview camera, climate control, and electronic parking brake.

Moving into the CX-30 GS brings the updated Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine into the mix. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, this efficient powertrain is now capable of 191 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, and with updated cylinder-deactivation technology, provides a rating of 9.0 L/100km in the city, 7.1 L/100km on the highway, and 8.2 L/100km combined.
