- the 2021 mazda cx-30 gains a new 2.5 turbo trim level with a more powerful engine.
- the turbocharged version starts at $31,000 and ranges up to $35,000.
- the cx-30 2.5 turbo will arrive at dealerships by the end of the year.
the latest mazda to gain the company's turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four is the cx-30 crossover, which adds a 2.5 turbo model for the 2021 model year. this 250-horsepower version of the cx-30 will start at $31,000 and comes standard with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. that base price represents a significant $7700 bump over the least expensive awd cx-30 with its base engine, a 186-hp nonturbo 2.5-liter inline-four.
upgrading to the cx-30 2.5 turbo's better-equipped trim levels will cost you, too. the 2.5 turbo premium starts at $33,400 and adds extra stuff including a bose audio system, a heated steering wheel, navigation, a head-up display, and a power liftgate. the premium plus is fully loaded at $35,000 and includes features such as a 360-degree camera system and more advanced driver-assistance technologies.
we anticipate the cx-30 2.5 turbo to be significantly quicker than the standard version, which recorded a zero-to-60-mph time of 8.1 seconds in our testing. the related 2021 mazda 3 2.5 turbo got to 60 mph in a swift 5.6 seconds, so we look forward to testing a cx-30 to see how it performs.
mazda says the 2021 cx-30 2.5 turbo will be going on sale by the end of this year.
