You’ve probably noticed more and more electric vehicles on the roads of Surrey, Burnaby, Langley, Richmond, and the Vancouver area recently. However, it’s easy to get put off the idea of getting one yourself, as many EVs can appear prohibitively expensive. But if you like the idea of a stylish, comfortable, and high-quality compact crossover SUV with a fully electric powertrain that’s cheap to run, look no further than the 2023 Mazda MX-30.
Some shoppers like their vehicle’s exterior styling to shout about their environmentally friendly credentials, while others wouldn’t consider a vehicle that looks like it’s making a big statement. The 2023 Mazda MX-30 has some styling elements you might see as individual or unique, but it’s hard to imagine anyone finding the aesthetics of the Mazda polarizing or off-putting. The exterior of the MX-30 is sleek, sporty, perfectly proportioned, and not as tall as some small crossovers that can look a bit dumpy.
One design element you can’t fail to notice about the MX-30 is what the manufacturer refers to as “Freestyle Doors.” Of course, the MX-30 isn’t the first vehicle to have what many would call “suicide doors,” but they are unique in this class. Rather than the conventional front and rear doors that open out the same way and have a pillar separating the front and rear openings, the front and rear doors of the MX-30 open in opposite directions to create a single, large open space that makes getting in and out a breeze.
The 2023 Mazda MX-30 is a relatively straightforward model with few choices for buyers to make beyond whether to purchase or not. There are two trim levels and one drivetrain, and there’s a noticeable price difference between the GS and GT versions of the compact Mazda EV. It makes sense to closely examine the details of the two specifications to help you decide which model is suitable for you and your budget.
The same electric powertrain features in both models. The unit in question pairs an 80.9-kW electric motor with a 35.5-kWh battery pack to produce a healthy 143 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque that goes exclusively to the front wheels. The substantial battery pack is under the floor, lowering the MX-30’s center of gravity. That makes the MX-30 stable at any speed and promotes an enjoyable driving experience with good handling and a comfortable ride. When DC fast charging is available, the 35.5-kW battery can be charged to 80% of a full charge in around 36 minutes.
If your budget allows, it could be tough to decide between GS and GT versions of the 2023 Mazda MX-30. However, it’s hard to imagine too many shoppers being disappointed by the standard specification of the more affordable of the two models. The MX-30 GS gets standard 18-inch alloys, LED lights, paddle shifters, air conditioning, black/grey combination cloth upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, rear parking sensors, and i-Activsense safety features. The GT also gets an infotainment system with an 8.8-inch display, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and navigation.
If you’d like an even more impressive specification, the GT adds to that with adaptive headlights with automatic levelling, front wiper de-icers, a power-operated glass moonroof, and a 12-speaker Bose premium audio system. That’s not all, though, as the GT also features two-tone leatherette and cloth-trimmed upholstery, a walk-in power seat switch, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a 360-degree View Monitor, front parking sensors, and more.
The 2023 Mazda MX-30 is a stylish, high-quality, and desirable compact crossover SUV that would attract plenty of attention regardless of what it uses for fuel. But it’s also a model that will entirely change your thinking about driving if you’re not an EV driver already.
