The all-new Mazda CX-30 is starting to show up at dealerships all over the country and we’re happy to finally have our hands on it. With so much excitement surrounding its release, Mazda has released a virtual tour of its interior. This video is 360-degree controllable, meaning that you can view the whole interior. All you have to do is click and drag the video to move the view in the direction of the cursor (which will turn from a pointer into a small hand).
