Mazda’s CX-30 didn't make an appearance in the 2023 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, but the larger CX-5 SUV managed to finish 9th on the list of best cars to own. Mazda itself was also performed well, and was rated as the seventh-best manufacturer (out of 32), ahead of Hyundai, Toyota and Volkswagen.

Perhaps most impressive is the CX-30’s Euro NCAP crash test score. It not only achieved a full five stars out of five, but it set a new record for adult occupant protection, scoring 99 per cent. 

In child occupant protection the Mazda scored 86 per cent, in vulnerable road users it scored 80 per cent and in safety assist it was rated at 77 per cent. Part of the reason for such high scores is the number of airbags and the safety equipment which is standard across the range. Examples of safety tech include autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist and speed assistance. 

Warranty

As standard, all Mazdas come with a three-year/60,000-mile warranty. This is on par with rivals such as Volkswagen, but behind the seven-year/100,000-mile warranty Kia provides. 

Servicing 

The maximum service interval for a Mazda CX-30 is 12 months or 12,500 miles, whichever comes sooner. Mazda offers fixed-price servicing for its CX-30 and cost varies depending on the engine. Skyactiv-G models are the most affordable, whereas Skyactiv-X models cost a little more.
