Mazda has a great reputation among owners

Carbuyer Rating

4.0 out of 5

Reliability & safety Rating

4.5 out of 5

The Mazda CX-30 is an all-new model so there’s no direct evidence of its reliability but Mazda has a great reputation in that department, and the car is expected to receive a five-star Euro NCAP result.

Mazda CX-30 reliability

Along with the Mazda3, the CX-30 sits on an entirely new platform for Mazda, but we have seen some key components like engines in other models before. Reassuringly, the Japanese manufacturer also came fourth out of 30 brands in our 2020 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, with praise for build quality, running costs and the price of servicing.

Safety

The Mazda CX-30 achieved an impressive five-star rating when tested by Euro NCAP, scoring an excellent 99% safety rating for adult occupant protection - the highest score ever achieved by any car tested. It also scored well for child occupant protection, with 86% overall, plus it received 77% in the safety assist category.

Standard fit accident-prevention kit includes lane keeping assist and autonomous emergency braking (AEB) capable of detecting pedestrians, cyclists and other drivers, along with a system to warn the driver to take regular breaks on long trips.
