With the reveal of the Mazda MX-30, that was the point where I figured Mazda have given up on their naming schemes. The CX-30, was unfortunate, and I still don’t know why it wasn’t called the CX-4, when it’s not going to be sold alongside the Chinese CX-4 that already exists but whatever. Here’s a better name, CX-35, which implies the Cx-3 is the CX-30 and etc. But now they besmirch the great MX- name?!
Ok, Mazda have never been good at names, their naming scheme for passenger cars is just a single number. The 3. Or more accurately the model is the Mazda3, making it the Mazda Mazda3, but obviously you just say the model name. And before that it was the x2x naming scheme, which makes sense in theory, but from the outside it just looks like a bunch of random forgettable numbers. The 323. And while they’re At least all their other models have much simpler prefixes. And I’ve derailed into talking about Mazda’s naming scheme (I’ve got more where that came from), but back on topic.
I was interested in looking at what other vehicles have used the MX- name, an turns out, its been used on all sorts of different concepts of different varieties.
