Slotting into the Mazda SUV lineup in the narrow space between the subcompact CX-3 and the compact CX-5 is the new—and curiously named—CX-30. Why isn't it called CX-4? We asked Mazda: It's kind of a long story. Regardless, we like the way it looks. Mazda's designers gave it a more severely forward-canted rear window and chunkier black-plastic body cladding to help differentiate the 2020 Mazda CX-30 from its other crossover siblings.The 2020 CX-30 shares much of its mechanicals and platform with the all-new Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback, so we expect it to have a 186-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. It's possible that Mazda's new gasoline-powered compression-ignition engine—which the company calls Skyactiv-X—is likely to be available in the CX-30 at some point down the road.

“Wilfully odd-looking small SUV is actually fun to drive. It's the Nissan Juke's worthy heir ”

PROS
Refined mild-hybrid powertrain,
and handles better than it strictly needs to

CONS
Hybrid gets expensive.
Looks weird (even weirder than before) but then you might like that

By:

The hybrid version has low CO2 emissions on its side, but otherwise the Kona is outclassed by the many other small SUVs available to choose from at this price. The Ford Puma is more fun, the T-Roc more comfortable and the Skoda Kamiq more practical.

PROS
Low CO2 emissions (Hybrid)
Generous standard kit
Good infotainment system

CONS
Bumpy ride
Not very practical
So-so performance of the 1.0 T-GDi
