As such, there are now four variants for the all-new Mazda CX-30 launched earlier this year – including the 2.0G, 2.0G High, as well as a diesel-powered 1.8D High. As for the new 2.0G High AWD, it will sit at the top of the CX-30 range.

Under the hood, you get the 162 hp and 213 Nm from the same 2.0-litre engine that powers the 2.0G and 2.0G High. Those two however are only front-wheel drive so it would be interesting to see how the CX-30 AWD would perform; given that it’s 69 kg heavier with the additional components from the i-Activ AWD system.

You get a 6-speed automatic gearbox and like the other models, this one is also equipped with Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) system.

As it is now the most expensive CX-30 you can buy, at RM176,059 on-the-road without insurance, it comes with all the bells and whistles fitted in the 2.0G High and 1.8D High models. They include a powered tailgate, keyless entry, 10 parking sensors, a head up display, auto brake hold and a 10-way powered seat with memory function for the driver.

It also comes with the i-Activsense driver assistance system that comes with adaptive headlights with high beam control, Smart City Brake Support (front and rear), Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and a blind spot monitoring system.

The new 2.0-litre SkyActiv-G AWD comes with a 5-year/100,000 km manufacturer warranty and a 5-year free maintenance package. Prices for the other variants of the CX-30 are as follows:
1.8D High – RM172,943.60
2.0G High – RM164,059.00
2.0G – RM145,759.00 (RM2,700 increase)

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
