There is a caveat, though. The turbocharged CX-30 is expected to start at $29,900, excluding the destination charge of $1,100 that takes the price to past the $30k mark. That's nearly $10,000 more expensive than the base CX-30 with the naturally aspirated engine.
Of course, it should be more generously equipped than cheaper CX-30s, but for the top-spec Premium Plus, expect to pay $35,000 with the destination charge included. At least this includes features like a head-up display, a surround-view monitor, and parking sensors. Just below this, the Premium will go for $33,400. It's not cheap, but it does eliminate the one notable gripe we had with the CX-30, which should have rivals like the Subaru Crosstrek even more worried than before.
