These days, there is a range of subcategories when it comes to SUVs. While some are designed for families constantly on the go, others are great if you need the convenience and comfort of extra space while still prioritizing efficiency.

One model we have here at Mazda of Abington for drivers in Willow Grove, Willow Manor, and Glenside, PA, that offers this balance of space and performance is the 2021 Mazda CX-30. If you specifically want to find out about the MPG of the Mazda CX-30 and how it can save fuel during each trip to work, the grocery store, or your favorite restaurants, keep on reading!

MAZDA CX-30 Engine Specs and Fuel Economy

Many of its trim levels are powered by a standard Skyactiv®-G 2.5 4-cylinder engine. This engine not only creates a good deal of power but also gives the Mazda CX-30 great gas mileage.

With its standard front-wheel drive (FWD) system, the Mazda CX-30 gets an EPA-estimated 25 city and 33 highway MPG.1 On top of that, it also holds up to 13.5 gallons of gas in its fuel tank, meaning you can drive for hundreds of miles between stops at the gas station.

When equipped with the available i-ACTIV AWD® (all-wheel drive) system, which helps provide better traction through the rain and snow, it still achieves an EPA-estimated 24 city and 31 highway MPG.1

The higher trims of the Mazda CX-30 come standard with a more powerful turbo engine. With these trims, you’ll get the Skyactiv®-G 2.5 Turbo engine that puts out up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque.

The Mazda CX-30 trims with the Skyactiv®-G 2.5 Turbo engine come standard with the i-ACTIV AWD® system. These trims focus on power, traction, and performance. Since this is a different engine, you will end up with a slightly different fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 22 city and 30 highway MPG.1

An Engine and Transmission Designed To Maximize Efficiency

How does a vehicle like the Mazda CX-30, with over 94 cubic feet of passenger volume and powerful performance, able to get such great gas mileage? It has a lot to do with the engines we mentioned.

The Mazda CX-30 is powered by a Skyactiv®-G engine. Its Advanced Direct Injection fuel system, expertly engineered by Mazda, achieves a very high compression ratio. While this may sound technical, this system reduces the amount of fuel needed each time you step on the gas pedal. This results in a 15% increase in fuel efficiency as well as torque. Simply put, you’ll get more power while using less fuel.

The Mazda CX-30’s engines work with a Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed electronically controlled sport automatic transmission. This transmission is also focused on improving performance and fuel economy.2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbo gray driving on highway

The Skyactiv®-Drive transmission combines the advantages of multiple types of transmissions, including:

  • Continuously variable transmissions
  • Dual-clutch transmissions
  • Step automatic transmissions

To improve torque efficiency, which turns into better fuel economy, the Skyactiv®-Drive transmission uses a wider lock-up range that feels like a manual transmission but drives like an automatic.

Ways To Improve Your Gas Mileage

Now that we’ve learned how the Mazda CX-30 makes the most of each gallon of gas, it’s time to review some ways you can ensure you’re getting the best possible gas mileage. There are many factors that can affect your gas mileage, which includes:Car balancing out money

  • Vehicle condition
  • Driving habits
  • Daily driving conditions

First, it’s important to make sure various parts of the vehicle are in great condition. Having the oil changed regularly will keep the engine performing at its best. Having tires that are properly inflated can also maximize your fuel efficiency along with providing you with a smooth and stable driving experience.

Luckily, the Mazda CX-30 is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System that will let you know the moment any of its tires become underinflated. That way, you can fill them up immediately and continue to enjoy an efficient performance.

The second tip we have to improve fuel efficiency is also a safety tip: follow the speed limit. Many vehicles decrease in fuel economy when driving over a specific speed limit, typically above 50 miles per hour. When you follow the speed limit, you’re not only keeping yourself and other drivers safe but also saving some gas along the way.

Are you someone who keeps a lot of stuff in your car? That also might affect your fuel efficiency. Extra weight in your vehicle from unnecessary objects makes your vehicle use more gas to get up to speed than your car would need without the excess weight.

Safety Technology To Improve Your Drives

While you can enjoy your drives knowing your Mazda CX-30 will take you far with its impressive fuel economy, you can also get peace of mind knowing the SUV will keep you safe. The i-Activesense® suite of driver-assistive systems uses tech to improve safety to help you avoid or mitigate collisions and make driving a bit easier. With the 2021 Mazda CX-30, you will get standard features, such as:

  • Smart Brake Support
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane-keep Assist
  • Driver Attention Alert
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go

One system that will lend a hand while you’re on the highway is the standard Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go. This feature uses radar to judge the speed and distance of the vehicle in front of you. You set the speed range, and the Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go maintains it while ensuring a safe following distance from the car in front.

Using this system also has the added benefit of improving your fuel efficiency. When you use cruise control, you accelerate less often because your Mazda CX-30 keeps you at a consistent speed, saving you gas.

Another helpful standard feature on the Mazda CX-30 is Driver Attention Alert. This is particularly helpful when you’re driving late at night or on a long road trip. Your Mazda CX-30 will monitor your driving patterns, and when your driving patterns appear to be distracted or tired, the Mazda CX-30 will alert you. This can help you refocus your attention or decide it’s time for a break.

Enjoy Fun and Confident Handling in the MAZDA CX-30

It’s not just efficiency that the Mazda CX-30 excels at when it comes to its performance. That is because, with G-Vectoring Control Plus, the Mazda CX-30 gives you enhanced confidence as you drive. This is able to adjust the power delivery and braking to subtly shift vehicle weight as you navigate your way around the roads. Due to this, you’ll feel more effortless turning, no matter how tight the turn is, and enjoy an even smoother and engaging driving experience.

The available AWD system that we mentioned above also has a feature that is useful when you are looking to take your Mazda CX-30 out for a camping trip with friends or family. With its off-road traction assist, you will have the stability needed when you have to turn off the paved road onto an uneven path to get to your campground.

A Practical Ride for All Your Road Tripping

Since you can go for long stretches between stopping at a gas station to refuel, the Mazda CX-30 is an ideal ride for any longer trips you want to make. Along with its efficiency, it is set to provide you with enough room when you and the family are heading out to visit relatives or you and your friends are taking a trip to another city for the weekend.

You can also pack up supplies and luggage you need for the weekend, since there are 20.2 feet of cargo volume behind both rows of seating. Before you take your car out of Neutral and start your trip too, simply plug in your phone for a more personalized and connected ride.

That way, you can put on the playlist you made for the trip, pull up directions on the 8.8-inch display to your destination to see when you will be arriving, and even make hands-free calls as you go. This is all thanks to the seamless smartphone integration that you’ll get with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
