Three weeks a rumour surfaced that Mazda was planning to add a turbo engine to the product offering for the CX-30 model. The automaker has now confirmed that rumour to be fact, as it announced additional details on the turbocharged powertrain that will be available to consumers for the 2021 model-year.
The engine joining the club next year is a Skyactiv-G 2.5 turbo unit.

The engine will deliver the same capacities as it does elsewhere in the Mazda lineup: up to 250 hp and 320 ln-ft of torque, when using 93-octane gasoline. Stick to regular 87-octane gasoline, and those top figures go down to 227 hp and 310 lb-f of torque. The company’s i-Activ all-wheel-drive system is included standard.
