Standard kit is similar to that of higher-spec, Australian-delivered CX-30 variants, with equipment highlights including leather trim, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, paddle shifters and a sunroof.

The engine produces 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS) and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm) of torque with premium fuel, but that figure drops to 227 hp (169 kW / 230 PS) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) on regular.

The Mazda CX-30 is the next model to benefit from turbocharging in the United States for the 2021 model year, so say hello to the new CX-30 Turbo. This includes the smart city brake support reverse with rear cross-traffic braking-a function that automatically applies the brakes when an obstacle or a crossing vehicle is detected while going in reverse.

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbo will become available for "presale" in Mexico on September 24, with keen buyers able to place a reservation on that date. 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 level of craftsmanship of the interior is elegant with its seamless blending of materials, such as a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror, black upper dash and chrome finishes.

In Mexico, the 2.5-litre turbo engine will be offered exclusively with the highly-specified, CX-30 "s Grand Touring" trim level. The latter builds on the adaptive cruise control system by providing steering inputs that help to keep the vehicle centered in its lane at speeds under 40 miles per hour (64 km/h).

The 2021 CX-30 2.5 Turbo is scheduled to go on sale by the end of 2020. More details about the packaging will be announced in the coming months.
