Does anyone know if this is an option on the new CX30? On some other Mazdas when you activate the rear defroster it also heats up the rear view mirrors, I find this very useful when the mirrors are iced up or raining.
For the US version, its not listed in the brochure or online. Another forum says heated mirrors are not included on any trim level of the US CX-30, and I seem to recall a youtube reviewer saying the same thing.
I find that incredibly difficult to believe.
Heated side mirrors that are activated when turning on the rear window defroster has been standard fare across the industry for years.
I don't know of any modern vehicle that does not have this feature.
Why on earth would Mazda eliminate it? Doesn't make sense.
I see the same "Mirror Defogger (Some Models)" language in an online .pdf version of the manual from the mazdausa.com site. This manual seems to apply to U.S. and Canada both.
So far, I've not seen the feature listed on Mazda's site, on a dealer's site, or on either of two Premium trim window stickers - one from a 2020 and one from a 2021.
The rumors I mentioned were from a youtube dealer video which described the upcoming CX-30 Turbo models with changes that are expected.
If someone here can say they've seen the ice melt or the fog vanish on their mirrors on a U.S. CX-30, I'd be glad to hear it. I'm not surprised Canada has heated mirrors, though. Mazda wouldn't be able to sell many cars there without that feature.
My gut says that this feature has been standard across the industry long enough that it doesn't really need to be listed on an option sheet anymore.
I was looking at the specs on a BMW X1 that my son just bought.
No mention anywhere on BMW sites about rear defrost or heated mirrors. It's a given.
Sort of like power windows and intermittent wipers. No need to list that kind of stuff anymore.
Going with my gut again, but if the CX-30 has body-coloured, power folding, with memory positioning mirrors, I just can't see that they wouldn't be heated as well.
If you find out for sure, let us know.
