The MX-30's seats have a Mazda-unique structure that supports the lower pelvis, upper pelvis and thighs to hold the pelvis in an upright position whilst simultaneously supporting the body's centre of gravity with the upper section of the seatback. This ergonomic design helps the spine maintain a natural S-shaped curve even when seated.
The seats on Prime-Line cars feature light grey cloth with dark grey trim, while Exclusive-Line and Makoto cars have light grey cloth with stone leatherette as standard. On the range-topping Makoto, you can specify optional dark grey cloth with brown leatherette or new for 2022, customers can opt for a dark grey cloth with black leatherette. From Exclusive-Line onwards the driver’s seat features 8-way power adjustment and memory functionality linked to the door mirror and the head up display. Heated front seats are also standard on Exclusive-Line and Makoto cars.
Delivering the sort of high-quality look and feel expected of Mazda’s latest interiors, from Exclusive-Line onwards the MX-30 features chrome detailing on the steering wheel, power button surround and the glovebox handle, while the interior equipment tally on Makoto includes a heated steering wheel, a 12-speaker Bose surround-sound system and a handy 11kW socket for charging devices.
All Mazda MX-30s feature a 7-inch colour touch screen for climate control settings, which for easy use also features physical buttons for key functions. All cars have a 8.8-inch colour centre display screen with Mazda Connect infotainment and navigation as standard. The intuitive Multimedia Commander control dial features a separate volume dial. All models have a windscreen projected colour head up display with traffic sign recognition.
The MX-30 features the latest version of Mazda Connect, which includes enhancements such as a quicker start up, improved image and sound quality, a built-in 3D gyro sensor, and a free word search function that lets users search for destinations by entering a combination of keywords. As in all new Mazda models, the system supports Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to ensure a convenient user experience with smart phone integration.
With its stylish floating centre console, the shift lever and commander control are positioned toward the front of the console and the centre armrest is high so these controls can be operated with the arm at a natural angle. The centre armrest also adopts a slide mechanism, affording all drivers a comfortable posture, regardless of build.
Stylish and a product with low environmental impact, the MX-30’s cabin features cork on the centre console tray section as well as on the door grips. To ensure the high level of durability required for use as car parts, Mazda developed a dedicated coating and a special technique to process the cork and its base material at the same time. Cork also pays tribute to Mazda’s heritage, harking back to the company foundation in 1920 as the Toyo Cork Kogyo Corporation.
