Mazda has followed up its new compact hatchback Mazda 3 with the second model in its new-generation lineup, the Maxda CX-30 compact crossover SUV.
The new model will slot in between the CX-3 and the CX5, and will be longer and wider than the current CX-3 model.
The new model is being unveiled at this week's Geneva Motor Show, and will go on sale in Europe later this year. It is likely to arrive here next year.
Mazda says the new model combines the bold proportions of an SUV with elegant styling that embodies the company's Kodo design language.
"Relaxed and user-friendly packaging and a cabin that comfortably seats four adults mean customers can easily enjoy trips to any destination with family and friends," it said.
Basic performance attributes such as accelerating, turning and braking are said to have been dramatically enhanced. Mazda's Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture enables people to make the most of their natural sense of balance and the latest Skyactiv engines, including Skyactiv-X, allow responsive control of vehicle speed in any driving situation.
“We designed the CX-30 to be an essential partner in the customer's daily life,” said Akira Marumoto, Mazda's Representative Director, President and CEO.
“It will be made at key global plants so we can deliver Mazda's renowned driving pleasure and matured Kodo design to customers all over the world."
