Fuel Capacities and Curb Weight for the MAZDA CX-30

When considering fuel economy, the engine and drivetrain are often focused on primarily. However, there are other vital traits that determine how efficient any model is going to be. Fuel tank capacities and the overall curb weight of a vehicle are two other factors that come into play. For the new Mazda CX-30, you can expect a modest curb weight with a large fuel tank.

The curb weight can check in as low as 3,234 pounds, meaning the engine doesn’t have to waste fuel trying to move an excessive amount of weight. For the fuel tank capacity, FWD models offer a 13.5-gallon tank. Alternatively, models with i-Activ AWD® will give you a respectable 12.7 gallons!

The MPG rating of the new Mazda CX-30 is a clear benefit for the model, but there are other appealing performance features in play, too. For example, the base engine is punchy and delivers 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.

All of the transitions between gears will be smooth thanks to the efforts of a Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed electronically controlled sport automatic transmission.
