The CX-30 Turbo tips the scales in at 1583kg (dry) - 108kg more than the non-turbocharged, 2.5-litre, all-wheel-drive CX-30 now offered in Australia. With the new variant, almost the entire Mazda line-up in the United States will be offered with a turbocharged variant, save for the CX-3 and MX-5. This new powertrain is the Skyactiv-G 2.5T mill, which generates 227hp and 420Nm of torque when running on regular 87-octane fuel, and power jumps to 250hp and 433Nm when fueled with 93-octane.

Mazda in North America has revealed the new CX-30 Turbo, which uses the same 186 kW turbocharged 2,5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine as the hottest Mazda3.

Interestingly, the flagship variant will furthermore gain extra safety kit, such as a "smart city brake support reverse" function with rear cross-traffic braking. The 360° View Monitor with high-definition digital clarity is also available.

In Mexico, the 2.5-litre turbo engine will be offered exclusively with the highly-specified, CX-30 "s Grand Touring" trim level. Also present on the interior is an auto-dimming rearview mirror, black upper dash, and chrome accents. These new features accompany other premium technologies that help the CX-30 2.5 Turbo stand out from its segment, such as Active Driving Display, Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Front-lighting System.

The cabin also reflects the sporty nature of the vehicle, with "human-centric philosophies" applied to the steering wheel controls, Bose 12-speaker audio, the 8.8-inch center display, and the realization of the "ideal seating position".

The Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo gets a few design tweaks, too, with larger tailpipes, gloss black door mirrors, 18-inch black aluminum alloy wheels, and a "TURBO" badge out back on the liftgate. More details about the packaging will be announced in the coming months.
