Mazda CX-30 in Malaysian showrooms right now
Order taking has started this weekend and at all major Mazda showrooms
Yes, it is already December and Malaysians rarely buy new cars in this month as they prefer to wait and get a new year, 2020 registration date and number but there is nothing wrong in visiting a Mazda showroom as soon as possible to see in person the all new Mazda CX-30 crossover that has just arrived from Japan. Yes, this CX-30 is fully imported from Japan and yet its asking price is not that high.
So, you might be asking what happens with the Mazda CX3 Crossover? Well, Mazda will continue to develop and sell the CX3 as it sits in a segment lower than the CX-30 and as the global demand for Crossovers and SUV’s rise against sedans and hatchbacks, Mazda in Japan is thinking ahead and keeping abreast of market needs and wants.
In November this year, the Mazda CX-30 won a 2019 Golden Steering Wheel award from BILD am SONNTAG, Germany’s biggest Sunday newspaper, and the European AUTO-BILD group triumphing in the competition’s SUV/crossover category for vehicles up to 4.4m in length.
The prize was presented to Mazda Motor Europe President Yasuhiro Aoyama on yesterday evening in Berlin. It is Mazda’s fifth Golden Steering Wheel to date: The Mazda 323 won in 1985 and 1989 followed by the Mazda 626 in 1992 and the Mazda2 in 2014.
Buyers with families make up a significant portion of the Crossover market. Crossovers are perceived to be bigger, generally allowing more interior room for kids, pets and all the accessories that come with them. They are also higher off the ground, allowing owners an added sense of safety and security.
Additionally, Crossovers don’t generally have the ‘soccer mom’ or ‘auntie’ stigma attached to them. Avoiding this label is priceless to many female auto buyers.
Besides families, Crossovers are also popular among single adults, “early-nesters” (couples without children) and “empty-nesters” (couples who have grown-up adult children).
The added space and utility are primary reasons why the childless demographic buys Crossovers. People with large dogs may buy a Crossover for the cargo room behind the seats. Many people without children have relatively active lifestyles, and a Crossover is one of the best types of vehicles to support their “always on the go” way of life.
Certainly, other reasons exist that can justify the added cost of Crossover ownership. Buyers must consider their personal situation to determine if a Crossover is the right type of vehicle for them.
What ever the reasons are, the demand for Crossovers will continues to rise and you can sure that auto manufacturers will have more variants to offer in coming years.
