2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo engine horsepower and torque
Under the hood of the 2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo is a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo engine capable of hammering out 250 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft of torque when using premium (93 octane) fuel or 227 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft of torque on regular (87 octane) fuel. This engine is paired with the standard i-ACTIV AWD® with off-road traction assist to provide a dynamic ride on your typical paved roads as well as some of the more rugged terrain you may encounter on your journeys.
Design elements and other features
That powerful engine is complemented by a confident design inside and out that makes the 2021 Mazda CX-30 a sight to behold. It uses Mazda’s Kodo design language and blends elegance and confidence, which is typical of a Mazda vehicle. The 18-inch black aluminum alloy wheels, larger tailpipes, gloss black door mirrors, and an all-caps “TURBO” badge on the liftgate proudly display the unique nature of this crossover SUV. Inside, you’ll find a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror, a black upper dashboard, and chrome finishes for added sheen.
Notable new features in the 2021 Mazda CX-30 include a new i-Activsense® safety technology system called Smart City Brake Support Reverse with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking. This can help with brake application when reversing while going between 2 mph and 4 mph if it senses an obstacle in the way or an approaching vehicle is detected. Another new feature is Traffic Jam Assist, which supports Mazda Radar Cruise Control under certain circumstances by helping with the steering to try to keep you within lane markers at speeds below 40 mph.
The 2021 Mazda CX-30 is expected to arrive at dealerships toward the end of 2020.
