An Overview of the 2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 S Engine Specifications
With the release of the 2021 Mazda CX-30 just recently, many of us have been wondering what the powertrain will look like. In its second model year, the CX-30 will offer the same engine from last year, which ranked as one of the strongest base engines in the extra-small crossover market. But how are the engine specifications? At Kelly Mazda, we look into the engine specifications and some powertrain rumors on the model. Check it out!
2.5-Liter SKYACTIV®-G Engine
Under the hood, the 2021 Mazda CX-30 possesses the 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G engine from the previous year. The engine receives up to 186 horsepower and 186 ft-lbs of torque. On top of the specifications, those interested can receive the model with either Front-Wheel Drive or the Available i-ACTIV® AWD, which also includes Off-Road Traction Assist. Said feature provides models with a button that can help increase the brake force on wheels that aren’t receiving traction while decreasing engine torque. The distribution helps the CX-30 continue moving in rough off-road conditions.
Will There Be a Possible 2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbo Engine?
Currently, the 2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 S comes with the lone engine option. However, rumors have recently surfaced that the 2021 Mazda CX-30 may have a turbocharged engine option in the future. The engine would likely be the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter Turbocharged engine, which has been added to the 2021 Mazda3. That engine would add up to 250 horsepower and 320 ft-lbs of torque when using premium unleaded fuel. However, no official announcement has been made by Mazda yet, so take said rumor with a grain of salt.
