It adds more power to the lineup with Mazda's terrific turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo engine that delivers an impressive 250-horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque if you use premium fuel. (It delivers 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque with regular.) The 2020 Premium model we test drove delivers 186-horsepower and matching torque so both of those numbers are quite a jump up. The Turbo also comes with standard i-Active all-wheel drive which Mazda says helps extend the CX-30's Turbo's capabilities.
Several exterior features set the 2.5 Turbo apart, including 18-inch black aluminum alloy wheels, larger tailpipes, gloss black door mirrors and a "TURBO" badge on the liftgate.

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.
InteriorThe CX-30 2.5 Turbo features a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror, black upper dash and chrome finishes, along with a Bose 12-speaker audio and 8.8-inch large center display and support to help achieve the ideal seating position.
