Mazda CX-30 Towing & Performance Specs

The 2024 Mazda CX-30 towing capacity is, according to the manufacturer, zero pounds. The model is not rated for towing, and both we and the manufacturer recommend that you do not tow with your Mazda CX-30.

The Mazda CX-30 is a subcompact crossover SUV designed to be fun, agile, and efficient. Its engineering prioritizes driving dynamics and premium appointments, and in place of the Mazda CX-30 towing capacity, the model’s cargo capacity is quite impressive when considering the exterior size.

The Mazda CX-30 can sneak into extra-tight city parking spots with its 173-inch-long, 61.7-inch-tall, and 70.7-inch-wide body. On the inside, it’ll let you bring both family and things along with seating for five and 20.2 cubic feet of cargo volume when all seats are upright. Even in those rear seats, the Mazda CX-30 offers plenty of room – 36.3 inches of legroom and 38.3 inches of headroom, to be precise. With standard i-Activ AWD® with Off-road Traction Assist and 8 inches of ground clearance for adventure-ready capability, a Mazda CX-30 treats you to immense versatility.

While they do not translate to Mazda CX-30 towing power, the performance specs for this model will still impress.

The standard 2.5-liter Skyactiv®-G four-cylinder engine delivers 191 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 26/33 MPG (City/Highway).1 Upgrading to the available 2.5-liter Skyactiv®-G turbocharged engine changes the performance specs to 250 horsepower, an EPA-estimated 22/30 MPG (City/Highway),1 and a 0-60 mph time of 5.8 seconds.2

With standard features like Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a remote keyless entry system, and a rich sound system with Mazda Harmonic Acoustics, the lack of Mazda CX-30 tow capacity is more than balanced by the other benefits you get for the price.
