Mazda Australia has confirmed local pricing and specs for its 2021 MX-30 M Hybrid range before going on sale next month, with an all-electric variant due to join showrooms later this year.
The three MX-30 M Hybrid variants adopt familiar Mazda naming convention, with Evolve opening at $33,990, mid-spec Touring coming in at $36,490, and flagship Astina trim closing the lineup at $40,990. All prices exclude on-road costs.
Featuring a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and mild-hybrid system, the 2021 Mazda MX-30 M Hybrid sends 114kW to its front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Regenerative braking and stop-start technology result in a claimed 6.4L/100km fuel consumption for the small SUV. A full-electric MX-30 will join the mild-hybrid later this year.
Standard kit includes 18-inch alloys, LED headlights, an 8.8-inch touchscreen and 7.0-inch cluster display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB+ radio with Bluetooth connectivity, and leather appointed steering wheel and gear shifter across all variants.
Moving up to Touring gains advanced keyless entry, 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat, illuminated front vanity mirror and auto-dimming exterior driver’s side mirror, while Astina scores heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats and steering wheel, and a sunroof with tilt and slide.
The 2021 Mazda MX-30 has received a five-star ANCAP safety rating (with a child occupant protection score of 87 per cent and adult occupant protection score of 93 per cent), which applies to M Hybrid and upcoming all-electric versions.
Standard safety across the range includes 10 airbags, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and assist with lane departure and rear cross-traffic alerts, lane-keep assist, rear parking sensors and reverse camera, traffic sign recognition and tyre pressure monitoring.
Adding to these, the top-spec Astina gains front cross-traffic alert, front parking sensors, a 360-degree camera and adaptive LED headlights. Excluding the headlights, these features can all be had on lower variants for $1500 with the Vision Technology option pack.
‘Polymetal Grey Metallic’ and ‘Machine Gray Metallic’ paint colours can be optioned on all trims for an additional $495, while three-tone ‘Ceramic Metallic’ ($995), ‘Soul Red Crystral Metallic’ and ‘Polymetal Grey Metallic’ ($1490) – featuring black roofs and grey pillars – are offered exclusively for Astina.
