2022 Mazda CX-30 Price Increase Is Totally Worth It

Pricing / Comments

There's one key reason why.

The Mazda CX-30 returns for the 2022 model year (unlike the smaller CX-3) and interested buyers need to know a few things. For starters, there's a price increase for all trim levels. But the bump in price seems justified as Mazda has made all-wheel drive standard across the board.

The base CX-30 2.5 S is $150 more than last year's FWD model, now beginning at $22,200. The slight price bump is actually a bargain as buyers will save $1,250 compared to last year's AWD-equipped base model. Moving up the trim ladder, the S Select ($24,600) and S Preferred ($27,650) trims also see savings of $850 and $200, respectively, compared to last year.

The CX-30 S Premium, however, costs $400 more than in 2021, now starting at $30,500. S Select customers can also now select a new paint color, Platinum Quartz Metallic, which can be had on the pricier Preferred, Premium, and Turbo trims, though not the base S. There's also the new CX-30 2.5 S Carbon Edition, featuring Polymetal Gray body paint, gloss black mirrors, and 18-inch black aluminum wheels.

The interior features trim-exclusive red leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power moonroof, and an eight-way power driver's seat. Dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.8-inch infotainment system and a 7-inch driver's gauge display are also standard fare.

Nothing has changed under the hood. The base engine remains the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. A turbocharged version sees output increased to 227 hp and 310 lb-ft. Using premium octane fuel boosts power to 250 hp and 320 lb-ft. Those turbo models cme standard with AWD last year and they too receive price increases, though only as high as $350. The 2022 CX-30 Turbo starts at $30,200, Turbo Premium from $32,800, and Turbo Premium Plus at $34,400.

Mazda says the 2022 CX-30 lineup will begin arriving in dealerships across the country early next month.
