2020 Mazda CX-30

Consumer Guide Automotive

This is a vehicle Goldilocks may have influenced.

While the burgeoning popularity of crossovers has caused some hair-splitting additions to model lineups of late, the new Mazda CX-30 fills a surprisingly large gap between the company’s CX-3 subcompact and CX-5 compact. And it fills that gap nearly dead-center, as its 173-inch length falls almost midway between the 168- and 179-inch spans, respectively, of its stablemates.

It also fills a gap in price.

2020 Mazda CX-30

Los Angeles Auto ShowMazda joins the ranks of automakers offering more crossovers than cars with the addition of the CX-30 shown at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. Slotted between the company’s CX-3 subcompact and CX-5 compact crossovers, this makes the fourth crossover in Mazda’s stable, which also includes the midsize, 3-row CX-9.

Mazda MX-3 GS

Cheap Wheels

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

If our readers were asked to rank Toyota Corolla traits, we’d guess sportiness and enthusiast interest would fall pretty far down the resulting list. Still, there have been Corollas capable of piquing a cheap-wheeler’s curiosity, and we think the 1987-88 FX16 GT-S “hot hatch” is one of the cars from this subset.

2019 Mazda 6

Tom and his family took the 2019 Mazda 6 Signature on a weekend road trip to the Twin Cities. Bayport is one of the first Minnesota towns along Interstate 94 as you head west out of Wisconsin.

Having heard great things about the food and architecture of Minneapolis, my daughter was excited to learn that her college water-polo team would be competing in a tournament at a school just outside of Minnesota’s largest city. As things turned out, that early-spring trip was a whirlwind event that left little time for anything but polo, sleep, and travel.
