714 921 Megtekintés

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 is a fun and enjoyable small crossover. Today I'm reviewing the CX-30 to show you around this compact crossover, and I'm showing you all the features of the CX-30. I'm also going to drive the Mazda CX-30 and show you what it's like on the road.

  • All news Mazda with automatic have hidden switch on the accelator pedal. Power is limited to 90% when you press normally. If you press pass that pressure switch, you unlock the last and actual power of the car. You can feel it with tactile feed back on your feet. Something women are incapable of feeling.

  • Mazda is going to add a rotary range extender to this car in 2022. If it sells well, they might make a new RX model.

  • Bought one in March, here in Austria. So far, great car. Previosly I had VW Passat, and it is totally different experience. Petrol engine is awesome, automatic gearbox with 18" wheels, perfect combo. Good job Mazda 👌

  • all that plastic cladding SMH

  • Doug mocks the off road mode button saying this car has "like 5 inches of ground clearance." Actually it has 8 inches of clearance which is significantly more. Can't believe someone would post a review of a crossover/lifted hatch and not know this. Sorry Doug, you kind of lost me there.

    Paul DenaliPaul DenaliHónapja
  • I own a 07 Mazda 6 with the v6. It is weird seeing the similarities but also the improvements. Mazda is one of the most underrated automaker in my opinion.

  • Sorry Doug. 2 commercials at the beginning, 2 at 3:00 and 2 more at 8:30, none of which I could skip, means I could not finish this review. HUworld has gotten too greedy with its advertising. Hmmm. Guess I’ll have to read reviews and stop watching HUworld.

  • little storage for coins for the toll booth. he living in 2001. who still using coins to pay toll booth? lol js

  • Doug complaining about the infotainment system because of the input feature. Just use the speech command, I constantly use it and it works fine. Even my passengers could say the address and and the car will catch it.

    Roger SmithRoger SmithHónapja
  • I still watch most of Doug’s reviews with fun... But I decided a while ago that I will not proceed to watch Doug’s score segments anymore. It’s a matter of brain balance. Trying to guess what score a reviewer is about to give (on just about anything, really), and- in all fairness - getting good at it is the very essence of the fun I will get when watching YT reviews. The discrepancy between the tone he uses to describe features right up until the score moment and the actual scores he awards just kills me. I keep my fun only if I don’t get to think (or see) that Doug soaks his toes in the spectrum. I got to keep on liking my Doug, after all...

  • Driving one of these as a loaner while waiting for my 6 to get repainted (soul red paint issue). I love driving this car!! Such a nice ride and beautiful interior.

    David CDavid CHónapja
  • Shabby prep for a car review when he makes fun of the "like 5 inches of ground clearance" (in the context of the off-road setting feature) without knowing it's 6.9 inches. Admittedly it's not an off-roader but it's an essential spec that should be known to a "reviewer."

    James MacJames MacHónapja
  • Can't believe you gave this car such a low score considering how much you like it haha. Also, if its so damn quick compared to all other vehicles in this class how the heck did you end up giving it a ONE out of ten?? lol

    Adil CAdil CHónapja
  • No visibility, Turbo engine that will have issues past 5 year mark, cannot rest elbows on long drives (while keeping both hands on steering wheel). Power? Drive a 2010-2012 RAV4 V6 and you have power without the Turbo complications. Also, what's up with the front hood overhang? That's ridiculous looking. As for the name... CX3.0, CX3.1...

    Sorin NicuSorin NicuHónapja
  • Doug I commend you for telling us about things a vehicle does that no other car reviewers do such as the volume control for blinker sound. That's worth knowing and you're the only one I've heard mention it. Well done!

  • Acceleration score is 1/10 comparing to other sub compact? seems like He's comparing to Daytona cars. Anyway, We all know Doug score is .. Doug score so .. just skip the last part of the video on the next video.

  • A person who works as a manager in Mazda told me that, they don't use 4 because it is believed that 4 is a chance destroying number in Japan. Maybe cx-4 was an exception because it is only sold in china

  • I just got back from my local Mazda dealership, the Cx30 looks better in person

    Jonny QJonny Q2 hónapja
  • Appreciate the thoughtful design features and minimalist design. As for the infotainment system, I'd have to try it of course, but I can't stand the touch screens so common today, and for the reasons Mazda explained. And more. All touch screens require that you look at them to press a button. Nothing is by feel. And that is bad while you're driving. I want to be able to control things by touch, without looking at them, or at most a quick glance. As for selecting the destination, yes, scrolling through letters might (might) be tedious, but you shouldn't be setting the destination while you're driving, Dave, so it's not a safety issue. The sub-adult sized back seat could be a fatal flaw for me. While I rarely would need to transport an adult back there, I would want the option to do so, without making that person miserable. I have read elsewhere that the visibility is bad. Dave didn't mention it, but from the video it does look limited. Which is a problem -- visibility is high priority to me. So what does the offroad mode do? As for the plastic wheel arches, two questions: 1. What might they look like in ten years? I would worry they wouldn't age well, if the intent is to keep the car a long time. 2. Might they help a car last longer in snow and ice country? I.e., protecting against rusted out fenders?

    DonTrumanDonTruman2 hónapja
    • I had 9.5 years old subcompact crossover, and the wheel arches are still in good condition. Just clean it regularly and it will last longer. I live in equator area so don't know about in snow.

  • Love the blinkers fade out. I hate bright LED blinkers, the sudden blinking on/off actually feels like a punch to my corneas. Don't know why.

    Noah MayerNoah Mayer2 hónapja
  • Yeah, those BIG black wheel arches AND black plastic wide door sill covers are just not in proportion with the size of the body or EVEN with the size of my 2019 MZZDA CX-5 GT Reserve. But otherwise it is well designed and well thought out inside and out. MAZDA has very high build quality, usually getting the highest marks form Consumer Reports.

  • Looked around for two years while my 2000 honda civic hatch manual finally kicked the bucket. Picked up a CX 30 after looking at all sorts of competitors. Wish it had a manual transmission and there is too much tech for me, but that comes with the territory now. Reasons for getting: Solid feeling, reliable (we shall see), fast (enough), decent ground clearance for CDN winters, AWD, looks good imo. Cons: Would prefer a 'made in Japan' car, an extra inch of ground clearance, the key fob is "too beaucoup" ! Rock n Roll !

  • I think CX-40 would definitely fit better. Starts with 4 which is between 3 and 5 and it wouldn’t be confused with the cx-4.

    VoidVoid3 hónapja
  • Three weeks after my purchase, I got to say: Mazda was right. The media console is safer, you actually take your eyes off the road way less and you get used to it very quickly. A bit difficult at the beginning, that's for sure. But i'd trade it for nothing now that i'm used to it. I never enter a destination on the console anyway. I just use Carplay and it's working like a charm.

    Jérôme Lévesque-BoucherJérôme Lévesque-Boucher3 hónapja
  • I like it, but pointless for me to try and get a new one. I'm not used to buying a car that is this costly. I usually wait and by one I want that is a few years old. On a fixed income, it's a more difficult decision. I've had a Mazda small truck and loved it. So, we'll see.

  • What about just not using the infotainment while driving

    XueqXueq3 hónapja
  • I know this is late but I think they named it CX-30 because they're "phasing" into a new naming system and it's more than likely to replace the CX-3. For ex: the CX-5 will soon be called the CX-50 in a few years.

  • I have had my 2016 Mazda3 since June of 2016. I almost never use the touchscreen. Yes, for location entry. But I use Waze for navigation, not really the Mazda system. You will be used to it in a few days, and memorize it in a few months at most.

  • I test-drove a 2020 CX-30 and it lurched when taking off from a light at a slow speed. I guess that's a thing with Mazda cars, but how can I feel good about buying a new car that has a flaw off right off the showroom floor? I spoke with an Imprenza owner yesterday and he said that jerky launch started happening at 40k miles.

    3aboodation3aboodation4 hónapja
  • The no touch screen argument is valid but in order to input your destination into gps with a wheel your car needs to be stationary (c300) I think Mazda too... correct me if I’m wrong...

  • Another reason to go with this class that folks don’t often talk about is parking. I suppose you can get used to parking anything, but I live in a really congested area where many parking lots are small, the spaces are tight, and the parking area is just a few feet from a busy road. So I appreciate a small vehicle with good packaging and features.

    Liam540Liam5404 hónapja
  • I think you're wrong about touch screens. Putting an infotainment system that you don't have to touch is a good idea, because of fingerprints. As a Mazda owner, the entire infotainment system isn't practical to use unless you are an apple car play user. As an android user, I basically have to use Waze over Bluetooth even though I have the Nav system with hd radio traffic ($500 option). The problem with the Mazda Infotainment system is how badly it's programmed and compares against a smartphone. The nav with traffic still sends you the longest route, despite telling you how much traffic there is. It only really integrates with iPhones.

  • The most powerful crossover in this segment. Acceleration: 1/10....

    Randy ChavezRandy Chavez4 hónapja
    • The Acceleration score comes from an objective scale based on 0-60 time, and anything that takes longer than 7 seconds gets a "1". Also, "most powerful in the segment" isn't the same as being as powerful as exotic high-performance sports cars, as the DougScore compares every car to every other car.

  • It makes perfect sense to make the turn-signal volume configurable, at least to people considerably older than Doug. When I was young, it was a joke that old people would drive down the road in their land-yacht Cadillacs and Lincolns with the turn signal happily flashing away. It was because the luxo-barges were trying to be quiet and hushed inside, and the clicking of the turn signal was too soft for many old people to hear. Of course, nowadays hearing aids are better and turn signals turn themselves off, so you don't see that old problem as much. But Mazda's way, if you're older and a little hard of hearing, you can make the turn signal louder so you're more comfortable with it. Makes sense to me.
