1. Mazda CX-30 2020 Philippines: What we think about it

Despite the very quiet interior, there’s just enough engine sound and steering feedback to “feel the road.” To further emphasize that, Mazda thankfully doesn’t use those godawful CVTs that most of us car guys outright abhor. Instead, they utilize the butter smooth SKYACTIV drive which regardless of being on automatic mode or manual mode, can shift through the gears like a hot knife through butter.

The SKYACTIV 2.0 liter gasoline engine has seen improvements too. It now makes more horsepower at 152, and more torque at 200 Nm. The top of the line spec now also comes with all-wheel-drive which of course means more grip.

And yes, the brilliant G-vectoring is available on the CX-30.
