Does the Mazda MX-30 have four-wheel drive?
Nope. It is front wheel drive only, and doesn't have any off-road capabilities.
Is there a hybrid version of the Mazda MX-30?
No - it is purely electric for now. However there is a huge space under the bonnet and this will house a a range-extender engine. That MX-30 R-EV version will have a small petrol engine to generate a bit of extra electricity to get you home when the battery is tired, and will be on sale from summer 2023.
How big is the Mazda MX-30?
Surprisingly long - it is 4,395mm which is about the same as a Nissan Leaf. That means you get a bigger boot than its city car rivals, but the rear seat space is nothing to write home about.
Is the Mazda MX-30 a safe car?
Yes, according to the independent testers at EuroNCAP. In fact it got the highest score ever under the new 2020 test rules. That's great news if you are in an accident, but be warned - the gadgets which are designed to stop you having an accident can seem irritatingly nannying.
What's with the cork inside the Mazda MX-30?
There's cork trim dotted about the cabin. It makes a nice change from wood or 'piano black' but might not be to everyone's taste. It's a nod to Mazda's heritage, as the company started out as a cork maker 100 years ago.
