Mazda CX-30 First Drive: A Subcompact Fit for Micro Adventure

马自达的最新微型vwin徳赢真人视讯SUV的迎合活跃festyles’ of young couples who live in cities. We got behind the wheel of the 2020 Mazda CX-30 to find out what this new little crossover is all about.

本周早些时候,我得到了一个每天花费在南加州2020年的马自达CX-30高级方向盘后面。I experienced the vehicle in a wide range of driving conditions. I talked to the engineers and executives at Mazda about all the details of this all-new vehicle in its lineup.

在CX-30属于超微型CX-3和超人气CX-5中型的SUV马自达阵容之间。它适合于微型SUV车型类别,这20万左右激增至超过过去5年,每年销往美国近80万辆。

There are about 10 current vehicles in this class, including vehicles like the Subaru Crosstrek, Jeep Renegade, and Hyundai Kona. About 31 percent of inflow into this vehicle class is from sedans, with 24 percent from bigger SUVs.

With fuel economy, looks, and driving dynamics becoming more and more similar to sedans, and with a taller seating position and more cargo room, this vehicle category is sure to continue to expand.

虽然世界在法兰克福车展在九月拿到CX-30在偷看,它的美国首演只有几个星期前,在洛杉矶车展。马自达将在同一条生产线为Mazda 3在墨西哥的美国车。

The vehicle hits U.S. Mazda dealer lots this week. So you could probably go buy one today.

Mazda CX-30 Exterior Styling

The Mazda CX-30 is a “sleek crossover that has the flowing beauty of a coupe and the bold proportions of an SUV.” The reality is that this little SUV looks uniquely Mazda, while at the same time looking like every other Japanese subcompact SUV.

I find the design pretty beautiful, excluding the excessive plastic body cladding when looked at on its own. When lined up with its competitors, I think the CX-30 fares very well but is too similar to truly stand out.

科多兽的设计理念,“运动的灵魂,”马自达用于其所有车辆产生了独特的,干净的,尖的鼻子和flowy两侧。我喜欢超级简单干净的鼻子上的CX-30,包括匀称,复杂的进气格栅和LED雾灯集成在保险杠下部。

Besides a few distinct lines, however, the overall shape and rear of the vehicle are very similar to the competition.

CX-30 Interior

Inside the all-new Mazda CX-30, you’ll find a well-appointed and upscale-looking interior. You get an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, a lot of buttons and dials, and optional rich leather dash and seats.

这也是对这么小的车辆相当宽敞。在CX-30提供高达94.1立方英尺客运量和货运量的20.2,这使它在正视后面竞争对手之间的中间。

The relatively big infotainment screen is not a touchscreen. It’s controlled by two dials and a variety of buttons behind the shifter, along with several buttons on the steering wheel. This system is not very intuitive, but once you’re accustomed to it, it works quite well. Mazda even admitted that research has shown that it takes about 3 weeks to learn the system.

Mazda stands by the decision to go this way, however, as research has also shown that 80 percent of collisions are due to distracted driving, and touchscreens are a major cause. Their research has shown that you must watch your finger when using a touchscreen.

By removing the touch requirement from the screen, the automaker is also able to mount it much farther forward and higher on the dash. This makes the screen require much less glance time, keeping your eyes focused on the road.

在任何一个时间马自达还提供了屏幕上少于七个东西。基于短期记忆的理论,这样的设计,让你集中在道路上,而不是车内屏幕上。

信息娱乐系统,当然,苹果提供CarPlay和Android汽车,但是这两个系统现在可以通过你的手机和车辆同时被控制。在CX-30提供了一个很好的,柔软的手感和清晰的点击最佳触觉反馈的每个按钮。

The seats in the CX-30 are a new design that creates a slightly more upright seating position. This is accomplished with a shorter, lower seat cushion and thigh support angle adjustment.

These features move your pelvis back in the seat and rotated more upright. I found this setup to be extremely comfortable in the driver’s seat, but not so much in the passenger seat. This is because the lower seat cushion angle isn’t adjustable on the passenger seat.

Mazda is really proud of the new audio system in the CX-30. The system has moved the tweeters from the dash to the doors for a direct angle on your ears and moved the subs out of the doors and up under the dash on the sides of the car for more amplification.

Both of these small changes should improve the sound, but I wasn’t impressed. I only got to experience the top-of-the-line 12-speaker Bose sound system. The sound the system produced was front-heavy and a bit hollow. I have a bit of an ear for these things, as I used to sell and install home theater systems.

No matter how I adjusted the audio settings, I couldn’t produce more than a mediocre audio experience.

Performance

The headline on all the marketing materials for the CX-30 is “class-leading standard horsepower.” The CX-30 offers up the same 2.5L four-cylinder backed by a six-speed transmission found in the Mazda 3, Mazda CX- 5, and Mazda 6. In the CX-30, this engine puts out 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet torque, which is good for a top speed of 126 mph.

With a curb weight over 3,000 pounds, I wouldn’t call the CX-30 quick, but it has plenty of power to get you where you need to go. Highway speeds and passing are more than competent, but off the line, speed is not very impressive.

有运动模式为好,但它只是改变了电子控制的换挡点。我想我最难分辨标准模式的差异。老实说,排气,使多一点的噪音往往是由于稍高的RPM。否则,在性能上没有真正明显的区别。

车辆我花了一天了全轮驱动系统,这是适用于所有的装饰水平,并提供真正的50/50配电。该系统通过车辆动力学模型实时地计算各个轮胎的负荷。

它现在所有的工作时间与检测只是当车轮打滑。这使得编程为更加步履稳健的驾驶在所有条件下,包括在干燥路面上,当你在角落里很难推动车辆。

在CX-30是在大部分的时间为最佳燃料效率前轮驱动。在路上,如果你地板瘦踏板,车辆假定你想要最大加速度与全轮牵引。

当在越野模式下,CX-30假设你是在一个宽松的表面,并立即获得最佳的牵引力发送功率到后轮。此外,在越野模式,牵引力控制系统,可实现全面的发动机扭矩和制动侵略性任何纺车。

While the CX-30 has the same super-competent chassis as the Mazda 3, it offers up a lot more ground clearance, at 7.9 inches. The CX-30 also only gets less mpg than its chassis mate, an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined for the base front-wheel-drive model and 27 mpg combined for the top-of-the-line AWD with cylinder deactivation.

马自达表示,它关注的是“以人为中心的该文g” to develop the CX-30 passenger experience. This means it looked into things like ways to use the big calf muscle versus the weaker shin muscle when depressing the brake pedal.

It claims to have created a “short stroke high effort brake pedal feel.” While that might sound like a lot of marketing fluff, I can say that the brakes are really responsive and powerful on the CX-30.

The CX-30 also gets a softer sidewall tire, softer springs, and stiffer bushings than other Mazda SUVs. These changes are said to create a simpler impact profile, simplifying the motion transferred to the vehicle occupants. This less complex impact motion transfer keeps the vehicle balanced and makes the ride more comfortable.

Again, maybe marketing fluff, but I can verify that the CX-30 is an easy, comfortable vehicle to drive that I wouldn’t hesitate to take on a long road trip.

技术-Packed Vehicle

消费者希望在汽车的最新技术,在所有价格点和vwin徳赢真人视讯马自达与CX-30提供。

The vehicle introduces Mazda Connected Services with a 3-year complimentary trial, which connects the car for free infotainment updates. It also includes in-car Wi-Fi, with a 6-month or 2GB data plan included and paid subscription after.

下周,MyMazda应用程序也将可用。该应用提供的锁定/解锁,开始/停止,以及车辆定位功能。它也可以让你从你的手机发送导航到车辆上。

Mazda has also included all the safety equipment you’d expect from a modern vehicle in the CX-30. While the safety features are all there, Mazda also has an Active Safety Philosophy.

For example, the vehicle respects the driver enough to limit the amount of torque the lane-departure-prevention system can send to the wheels. This lets the driver have more control in variable road conditions and disable the main driver aid/safety systems with a touch of a single button on the dash.

Mazda CX-30 Pricing

The Mazda CX-30 comes in four trim levels: standard, Select, Preferred, and Premium. A front-wheel-drive standard CX-30 will start at $21,900. For $1,400 more, you can upgrade to all-wheel drive across all trim levels.

I spent time in the top-of-the-line CX-30 Premium AWD on the press drive. This top-spec has a starting price of $29,600. The Premium package gets you a windshield-projected Active Driving Display, leather seats, a power liftgate, a power moonroof, an Adaptive Front Lighting system, roof rails, paddle shifters, cylinder deactivation, and LED Signature illumination headlights and taillights.

This pricing range, from $22,945 to $30,645, is about the middle of the pack in the subcompact SUV category. It’s also pretty much identical to the Subaru Crosstrek pricing structure, although the Crosstrek is AWD in all trim levels.

Mazda CX-30 Review: First Drive Impressions

Mazda thought out nearly everything well on the all-new CX-30. It’s a good vehicle at an economically competitive price. The driving experience of the CX-30 isn’t what I’d call inspiring, but I would say it’s more than competitive with anything else in its category and price point.

我喜欢舒适的驾驶座。我不喜欢在乘客座位为多​​,虽然两者都是加热。薄,大的方向盘和相对较重的转向是伟大的,因为他们使车辆手感种植和响应。方向盘上的换挡拨片是一个有趣的补充。坐的是越野相当苛刻;但在公路上,乘坐舒适,灵活。对于这类车辆,内部很安静。

There is great visibility in all directions out of the CX-30. I love the large optional heads-up display and 7-inch digital gauge display. I particularly like the speed-limit indicator, shown by a little red line on the digital speedometer gauge. But I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of the infotainment system. Of course, I also didn’t have 3 weeks to get comfortable with it.

The excessive plastic body cladding on the sides of the CX-30 cheapens what is otherwise a really beautiful, high-quality, flowy form. The quality deep paint on the CX-30 also helps show off the beautiful lines of the vehicle. Sadly, if you parked the CX-30 next to all its similar Japanese competitors, it would blend into the crowd way too easily.

To Buy or Not to Buy?

TheMazda CX-30is a worthy entry into the already-crowded U.S. subcompact SUV market. Although it doesn’t have any one thing that truly elevates it above the competition, it’s holistically a compelling vehicle. But will the quality package be enough for Mazda to attract more young active lifestyle buyers?

此外,一定要留意了类似Mazda MX-30。这是马自达首款全电动产品,该产品在今年早些时候在东京车展上首次亮相。这是有可能找到其对美国的方式在某些时候,虽然没有正式的公告来了呢。
