The 2021 Mazda CX-30 will receive an optional 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-four, the company said Thursday. It’s the same 250 horsepower engine found in the CX-9, CX-5, and Mazda 6, and it’s probably powerful enough to turn a few heads in a CX-30.
To get full power, Mazda says you need to use premium gasoline, otherwise the horsepower drops to 227 horsepower, but it’s still 41 horsepower more than what the non-turbo engine produces. The turbo will be standard in all-wheel-drive CX-30s, Mazda said; he did not publish a price.
The company also hasn’t specified which trim sets the turbo will be offered in, but you can guess those will be the most expensive. The CX-30 starts at $ 21,900, with the most expensive trim package starting at $ 28,550; it wouldn’t be too surprising if the turbo pushes the price over $ 30,000.
Mazda he told me there would also be a few other less interesting additions:
New i-Activsense safety features include Smart City Brake Support with Reverse with Rear Cross Traffic Braking, which can assist the driver by automatically applying the brakes when the vehicle is backing up at speeds between 2 and 4 mi / h in the event of an obstacle or when backing up from a parking space, a passing vehicle is detected. A new assist feature, Traffic Jam Assist, improves Mazda’s radar cruise control in certain situations by providing steering inputs that can help the driver stay in lane markers at speeds below 40 mph. The 360 ° view monitor with high definition digital clarity is also available. These new features accompany other high-end technologies that set the CX-30 2.5 Turbo apart from its segment, such as active driving display, traffic sign recognition and adaptive front lighting system.
Mazda likes to remind people that it is a small automaker compared to some of its competition and cannot do everything at the same time and even if it is true it is still a little weird that the turbo was not offered from the start in a car. which debuted last year. Either way, it’s good that he finally got there.
