Mazda is improving a lot on its turbo’s planted in its cars. CarsDirect reports that the 2021 Mazda CX-30 will surface with a turbocharged engine called the CX-30 2.5 Turbo. We have confidence that this intel obtained “via an early order guide” is legit.
2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbocharge Review
Mazda CX-30 is essentially a lifted and crossover-ized Mazda 3. and the Turbo variant of that car was announced by Mazda a short time ago.
Just like the Mazda3, CarsDirect reports that this car will be equipped with Mazda’s 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It is said to make 250 hp and a torque of 320 pound-feet when running on 93 octanes. If you use regular gas, the numbers will drop down to 227 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.
Mazda CX-30 is currently available only with the natural aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that gives an output of 186 horsepower and torque of 186 pound-feet.
You can only get the Mazda CX-30 with all-wheel drive. However, it will come with a turbo badging, larger tailpipes. And also it will be available in a top of the line Premium Plus Trim. The trim will add a number of features that are exclusive in the Mazda3 Turbo. Meanwhile, we expect the same for the CX-30.
Pricing will reportedly begin at $31,000 for the CX-30 Turbo and rise all the way up to $35,000 in its highest trim level. These prices are clearly encroaching on CX-5 territory. However, the cheapest CX-5 with that same Turbo engine is $36,235.
Meanwhile, just as the Mazda3 Turbo, it can guarantee the CX-30 Turbo won’t be available with a manual transmission. This vividly means that Mazda’s six-speed auto transmission will be doing the shifting.
CarsDirect also claims that Mazda intends to start the production of the CX-30 Turbo in the month of November this year. So if you really want to experience the speed of this awesome car with this kind of horsepower, you won’t have to wait terribly long.
