Mazda CX-30 Gets A Skyactiv-G Turbo Petrol Engine
This model should arrive in Mazda showrooms this year.
This all new Mazda Crossover first arrived in Malaysia in late 2019 with a price tag of RM141,649 and carrying the fuel efficient Skyactiv 2.0L engine. In September 2020, this fast selling CX-30 got an equipment upgrade with the addition of a power tailgate and its selling price moved up a little to just RM144,759.
Able to deliver an impressive 250bhp, this hot hatch crossover will give its immediate rivals from Germany a run for their premium pricing. The current Mazda CX-5 Turbo sells in Malaysia for RM176,000 so you expect a price tag for this CX-30 Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo to be around RM170,000 or so which is much lower than the asking price of BMW X2, Lexus UX, Mercedes GLA, Mini Clubman and Audi Q2.
Press Release: The 2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo will help uplift itself in its class with elevated performance and capability, new advanced technologies and superb craftsmanship and design. The Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo engine will deliver an impressive 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque with premium (93 octane) fuel or 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque with regular (87 octane) fuel. The combination of the turbo engine and standard i-Activ all-wheel drive system with off-road traction assist help expand the capabilities of the CX-30 to offer fans the freedom to explore life in style, from the city to the outdoors.
Advanced technologies available on the 2021 CX-30 2.5 Turbo will complement the modern, sophisticated design while also providing occupants with peace of mind. New i-Activsense safety features include Smart City Brake Support Reverse with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking, which can help a driver by automatically applying the brakes when the vehicle is reversing at speeds between 2 to 4 mph if an obstacle or when backing out of a parking space a crossing vehicle is detected. A new support feature, Traffic Jam Assist, enhances Mazda Radar Cruise Control in certain situations by providing steering inputs that can help assist the driver stay within lane markers at speeds under 40 mph. The 360° View Monitor with high-definition digital clarity is also available.

With more power and agile performance, the turbo engine is fulfilling the sense of passion invoked by the sleek and bold styling of the CX-30. Through Mazda’s Kodo design, the CX-30 2.5 Turbo’s silhouette reflects the driving pleasure of the engine while continuing to accentuate the engaging experience of a Mazda.
The level of craftsmanship of the interior is elegant with its seamless blending of materials, such as a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror, black upper dash and chrome finishes. Every aspect of the interior is purposely laid out to be intuitive for the driver and its occupants. From the steering wheel controls, the location of the Bose 12-speaker audio, the proportions of the 8.8-inch large center display and support to help achieve the ideal seating position, Mazda focuses on human-centric philosophies to help offer a natural feeling while driving.
The subtle enhancements to the exterior of the CX-30 Turbo highlight the new performance and capabilities with 18-inch black aluminum alloy wheels, larger tailpipes, gloss black door mirrors and a “TURBO” badge on the lift-gate.
