2023 Mazda CX-30 Review: Above-and-beyond the mainstream choices
Mazda's midcompact crossover aims high and hits the mark

Pros: Fun to drive; wonderful interior; standard all-wheel drive; class-leading turbo power
Cons: Average fuel economy from base engine; expensive relative to mainstream competitors; smartphone integration is only so-so
Mazda’s ongoing push to be an upscale brand is perhaps best exemplified by one of its least-expensive models. The 2023 CX-30 goes above and beyond the typical mainstream midcompact with a segment-busting turbocharged engine, standard all-wheel drive and an interior that belongs in a class above most of Mazda’s traditional competitors.

As impressive as it may be in that context, Mazda’s advantages come at a price — literally. It’s expensive for the segment and a bit shy when it comes to passenger and cargo space; a Kia Seltos or VW Taos would serve you better in that regard. And although it’s based on the traditionally athletic and nimble Mazda3, its AWD and taller profile add mass higher than where you’d ideally want it. Gone are the days of Mazda chasing lap times with its turbocharged Mazdaspeed models, but the CX-30 is nonetheless an excellent driving companion with near-luxury bona fides to boot.

What's new for 2023?
In short, not much. The standard 2.5-liter engine was massaged slightly, freeing up an additional 5 horsepower and simultaneously improving fuel economy, albeit slightly. Mazda also made some updates to the CX-30’s safety systems and crash structure that should improve performance for rear passengers. The only bad news is that Mazda quietly discontinued the base turbo trim, so you’ll have to spend a bit more to get that extra power for 2023.

What are the CX-30 interior and in-car technology like?
Like the Mazda3 with which it shares so much, the CX-30's cabin makes you go "wow" considering its price and the vehicles with which it competes. Whatever trim level you're considering, the key to this wow factor is how Mazda's current interior design scheme removes visual clutter by reducing switchgear and effectively hiding air vents and door handles. Lower trim levels are sadly no longer available with two-tone color treatments (we suppose most people just want plain-old black), but upper trims can still get white or black leather accented with reddish brown simulated leather trim. No matter the trim level, though, for a car in the $20,000-$35,000 range, CX-30 interior looks and feels special.

It's also of a high quality and quite functional. The steering wheel, which looks sensational, is an absolute treat to hold and has intelligently designed buttons/switches for the infotainment and cruise controls. There's considerable center console space, including a configurable under-armrest bin, and a decently sized forward bin for a smartphone.

Mazda's tech interface is a bit love-it-or-hate-it. The dashtop screen is large and easy to see. The knob that controls it is large, not unlike BMW's iDrive, and ergonomically placed on the center console. It's not a touchscreen, though, as Mazda engineers determined that hunting for touch-operating icons can be distracting. They're not wrong, and the higher-mounted screen is certainly easier to read at a glance. That said, there are a lot of people who don't not care for this setup and specifically prefer a touchscreen like the ones offered in all the Mazda's competitors. Specifically, the lack of a touchscreen can make it harder to select icons in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which were designed to be controlled by touch. There's a reason the Mazda CX-50 now allows touch operation when using CarPlay and Android Auto, but that advancement unfortunately hasn't made it to the CX-30 yet.

How big is the CX-30?
Although it was originally an unusual size, the CX-30 now finds itself among a growing number of midcompact SUVs that slot in between subcompacts like the Hyundai Kona and compacts like Mazda's own CX-5. Others include the Ford Bronco Sport, Kia Seltos, and Volkswagen Taos. In terms of space, the CX-30 is the smallest of that group and is definitely the least family-friendly. Two tall passengers will be able to sit front-to-back on the passenger side, but not on the driver side. Fitting a rear-facing child seat in the middle will be a squeeze.

Cargo space with the rear seat raised is 20.2 cubic feet, which is only a bit better than subcompact models and considerably less than the midcompacts mentioned above. That number is virtually identical to the Mazda3 hatchback, but in our testing, we found the CX-30's extra height allowed it to swallow an additional suitcase (surprisingly, the Mazda3 sedan can carry more than them both). Although its suitcase count trailed its midcompact competitors, it was superior to a pair of small luxury models, the BMW X2 and Audi Q3. We could also fit a golf bag diagonally across the cargo area.

What are the CX-30 fuel economy and performance specs?
For 2023, every CX-30 comes with all-wheel drive, plus a six-speed automatic. There are then two choices of engine. Cars dubbed CX-30 2.5 S have a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four that produces 191 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. That's more than the base engines of most competitors, plus some of their engine upgrades. It now returns 26 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined. Those figures remain low compared to other base engines, but again, the competition generally has less power.

As for the CX-30's upgrade engine, nothing in the segment can touch it. The turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four produces 227 hp and 310 lb-ft on regular gas. It'll do 250 hp and 320 lb-ft if you feel like filling it with 93 octane. Fuel economy is basically the same as the base engine at 22/30/25 mpg.

What's the CX-30 like to drive?
If you want to feel what a car is doing through the steering wheel, throttle pedal and through the seat of your pants, the Mazda CX-30 is exactly the type of small crossover you're looking for. Its taller stature means it loses some of the agility provided by the lower Mazda3, but the primary control efforts and feedback are just as exceptional. When it comes to providing an engaging driving experience, no SUV comes remotely close in the CX-30's price range. There's even a case to be made that it provides more driving fun than a BMW X2.

Along those lines, the available turbo engine is there to make the CX-30 feel luxurious and effortless, rather than burn rubber and set lap times like some turbocharged Mazdaspeed of old. On paper and in practice, none of its non-luxury competitors can touch it in a straight line – it obviously costs more, but it's the engine we'd certainly want.

Nevertheless, the base engine is still a peach. It's more powerful than most competitors, boasts terrific throttle response and is paired with one of the smartest transmissions around. It always knows exactly which of its six gears to select at any given time, and when Sport mode is selected, it quickly downshifts when braking into a corner like the sport-tuned transmissions of luxury brands do. It also doesn't clumsily hang onto revs when accelerating thereafter. As a bonus, the Premium trim adds paddle shifters then let you have some extra fun if you're so inclined.

What other Mazda CX-30 reviews can I read?
2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo First Drive A lifted, almost-hot hatch
The turbo engine was a new addition last year. It makes an already fun little SUV, even better, though certainly not to hot hatch levels.

2020 Mazda CX-30 Luggage Test Can it fit more than the Mazda3?
Taking an in-depth look at the CX-30's cargo capacity to see how much luggage it can fit inside and how that compares to the Mazda3 as well as other small crossovers. We also compared it to both the Mazda3 hatch and sedan with surprising results.

2020 Mazda CX-30 First Drive The middle way
Our first taste of the CX-30 features more in-depth information about its design and engineering.

What is the 2023 CX-30 price?
The base CX-30 2.5 S comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, automatic wipers, adaptive cruise control, a full suite of accident avoidance tech (see Safety section below), cloth upholstery, two USB ports, an eight-speaker sound system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the Mazda Connect interface that includes an 8.8-inch display and center console controller.

From there, you have a choice of three "packages" that are pretty much what other brands refer to as trim levels. We think the Select is best place to start your CX-30 shopping as for an extra $2,300 you gain 18-inch wheels, blind-sport warning, proximity entry, dual-zone climate control, rear air vents, a rear armrest, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leatherette upholstery versus the standard cloth. The Preferred, new Carbon Edition (pictured below) and Premium packages add further luxuries, most notably a heated power driver seat with memory (Preferred) and leather upholstery (Premium).

All new prices are below and include the $1,275 destination charge (add another $45 if you’re shopping in Alaska).

S: $24,225
S Select: $26,525
S Preferred: $29,495
S Carbon Edition: $30,565
S Premium: $32,775
Turbo Premium: $35,075
Turbo Premium Plus: $36,675
What are the CX-30 safety ratings and driver assistance features?
Every CX-30 comes with a comprehensive array of standard safety features beyond the usual airbags and stability aids. These include forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking (Smart Brake Support), lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and a driver inattention warning system. Blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning are included on all but the base trim.

Beyond their simple inclusion, these features are also among the best-executed on the market. Most appreciably, they aren't prone to false alarms or constantly beep at you like a scolding nanny.

The government awarded the CX-30 a perfect five stars in every crash test even before the updates Mazda made for 2023. The Institute for Highway Safety named the CX-30 a Top Safety Pick. It received the best-possible ratings in all crash tests and for its front-crash prevention system (both for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian accidents). Unusually, its base LED headlights got the best possible rating of "Good," while the curve-adaptive upgrade headlights found on the range-topping Premium (photographed above) actually got a "Poor" rating due to excessive glare. The CX-30 also received top marks for the ease of use of its child seat LATCH anchors.

2023.05.25 20:10 iFunny-Refugee 1956 Chevy 210 (265 SBC) Build

 Hello, so honestly, I'm not sure where to even start with this but I'll explain it like this. I am very much a novice at understanding the mechanics of an engine, so a lot of what I'll be saying might be coming from a lot of ignorance and lack of experience. (I'm 20 years old) I have a 1956 Chevy 210 with a 265 SBC that has been bored over .030, has a mild cam, and has hydraulic lifters. That is the extent of what I know, it was rebuilt like that from my grandfather near about a decade or two ago. He's since passed, so I am not able to ask him anything about it, my dad remembers a few things here and there. I've been driving it occasionally this past year and just a couple weeks ago my friends and I have taken on the challenge of taking out the engine for work to be done on it. I plan on undertaking a minor restoration of the engine bay. Originally, I wanted to convert it to its stock form but after several months of consideration I realized I wanted it to be something I enjoy driving. To be more adequate to modern standards with the flavor of 50s aesthetic. Now I want to improve upon it and make an interesting powerplant out of it. If I can get from 0-60 in at least 8-9 seconds, I would be super happy with that result. So my target would maybe be 300 HP and 300 ft/lbs (If that is even possible) to get that desired acceleration. I know I can somewhat get to that target because a 283 from a corvette in 1961 could get about 315 HP. Which is pretty impressive for the time. Money-wise I understand a 350 or 327 would be a much easier route for torque and power but I really like this engine because it's the first generation of chevy small block, no one runs them usually (Unless it's a restoration) because they were honestly a piece of crap compared to its children. Having one for the sake nostalgia and being period correct is fascinating to me but also having it be on par with a low-end 350 is kinda cool and unique. I would like to hear y'alls thoughts and opinions on what is possible and what could be done. What I have in mind so far with my limited knowledge is this, I'll label it in alphabetical order to make it easy on the eyes. 
A: Holley EFI to make it more reliable and efficient. Has that vintage gold/bronze color, which is similar to the stock carb.
B: Potential new heads or just have the current power-pack heads ported (If new heads I'd use some Chevelle valve covers to keep it looking like the old staggered ones.)
C: New intake manifold with the oil fill tube. Probably a Edelbrock
D: 4.11 Rear end
E: New transmission (I just picked up a '57 manual overdrive transmission from a fella, its in great shape), I plan to convert it to a 3-on-the-tree instead of the powerglide it has currently. ​
F: Ram Horn manifolds, most likely just the 2" variants, unless 2.5" is needed to make a good amount of torque. I need manifolds that have the provisions to bolt on the stock power steering/alternator to them. ​
G: H-pipe installed before the mufflers to get a small improvement of torque. ​
H: Any sort of internal improvements a machine shop recommends or whatever you folks recommend. Like a camshaft for example. ​
I: I do not want it to be bored anymore over, but if I had to I'd be okay with boring it over to the size of a 283. I don't think the block can be bored much more than that. I don't think it can even have a longer stroke because of just how they were built. But I'd be okay with more stroke too if that's even possible. ​
J: PCV system with the valves being located behind the valve covers to mask the modification. The current road draft tube makes quite a mess on the underside.
That is just the basic rundown of what I'd like to do.
 If it needs boost to get that much horsepower and torque in a reliable fashion, I wouldn't mind installing a centrifugal supercharger on the passenger side. Along with a proper "hat" on the EFI to make it look kind of like an old-fashioned oil bath air filter. I don't think it needs to be super big considering it's only like a 4.3L engine. But that'd probably be the most nonstock looking thing in the engine bay. 
Non engine related question: Can a transmission have a synchromesh gear added to its 1st gear to make it fully synchronized? I'm pretty sure it's not possible but I just thought to ask. Also, can a transmission's gears be strengthened through some sort of metallurgy process? I am a tad worried about the transmission breaking on me because of age, I wouldn't run it hard because that's not how I drive but if I had to accelerate from a dead stop I wouldn't want the thing exploding on me because of high torque. I think the transmissions at this time were pretty durable and could handle a decent amount of torque, I'm just not familiar with them and their capabilities.
 A lot of this is new to me so an explanation of why something can or cannot work would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance everyone (:

2023.05.25 15:38 jrustica Rented a Tesla Plaid … Received a Long Range Instead

“Thanks for the effort you put into letting us know about your issues with Akila’s Model S.
I’ve refunded the amount of 371.35. You should see the funds back in your account in up to 10 business days, but often within three to five business days.
I know this was an unexpected inconvenience, and hope your next trip is a better one. We will also take necessary action to make sure that the host is aware of what happened to prevent the same from happening again in the future.
Again, we appreciate your patience on this matter and we hope that we've been able to improve your overall experience.
Lucky Customer Support Supervisor”
To reiterate the situation, I rented a 2021 Tesla Model S “Plaid” from host, Akila B. This vehicle is marketed and listed specifically as a “Plaid” model. A Tesla Model S “Plaid” is a vehicle that boasts 1020 horsepower and is the quickest accelerating production sedan in the world. The price in 2021 was approximately in the $130,000 range. As an avid car enthusiast, I have wanted to test this cars performance for quite some time. I finally received the opportunity when I came across Akila’s Turo advertisement. I rented this vehicle for 1 day in Las Vegas from May 18 - May 19 directly through the Turo App.
During my trip, I noticed that the acceleration, although fast, was nothing as dramatic as the 1020 horsepower would cause you to believe. It felt more in line with the Tesla Model 3 performance, which I have driven before. During launch control, it is a well documented fact, that the Tesla Plaid produces a “rocket taking off” animation that displays on the dashboard as you launch from 0 mph to whichever speed you desire. After multiple attempts, I could never get this occur. Something just felt off. I trusted Turo as a company that screens their hosts and cars before listing them, so I did not think much further of the subject.
Moments after I returned the car, and went to upload the final car inspection photos of the trip, is when I noticed the screenshot Akila sent me of my starting mileage “24,349” miles. Also on this screenshot lists the Vehicle Identification Number (Vin) and the model type of the Tesla. The model type listed was a Tesla Model S “Long Range”. The Long Range, while almost nearly identical physically, is a much lesser performing car. It only has 670 horsepower and even started at a price in 2021 of almost $40,000 less than the “Plaid” version. To the average renter, they may have not picked up on this deception, but I did. The host even put a false badge on the rear bumper that displays “Plaid”. Under careful investigation, I determined it was not placed in the right position either.
I confirmed Akila sent me the correct Vin by asking him to send my “Ending Mileage” as well in which he sent me the same info, only this time displaying “24,372” miles. Still showing “Long Range” as the model.
I have associates in the car dealership business and forwarded them the VIN. They confirmed that it was NOT a Plaid, and it was just a Long Range. I even plugged the VIN into my own CarFax search and found the same information, a “2021 Tesla Model S Long Range”. I called Akila out on this deception, and he basically made 2 excuses before no longer responding to my messages. This is when I began reaching out to Turo, starting on May 19th. Then twice again on May 22nd. Then lastly on May 24th. Each time I am told it will be escalated or investigated.
Just want to give a heads up to people to double check everything as there are many deceptive hosts on Turo. Oh, and Turo customer service is absolutely useless.

2023.05.25 04:50 agedvermouth [Event] Iran Plans Naval Expansion

Iran Plans Naval Expansion

Office of Commodore Shahram Irani; Islamic Republic of Iran Navy - June 20, 2024

Caspian Fleet Buildup

With the growing relations between Iran and the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Defense has begun to revisit its naval policy. For the last twenty years, Iran has largely neglected doing anything significant in terms of naval development. However in 2016, it claimed Iran's goal was to operate in the Atlantic Ocean. In 2021 that dream became a reality when Iranian naval vessels reached the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. Although Iran's real capabilities are not combat operable in the Atlantic, it showed Iran could achieve what it set its mind to. Commodore Irani believes that with Russia's willingness to work with Iran in military, economic, and diplomatic terms, Iran should revisit its policy of fleet strength in the Caspian. As the Northern Fleet) is quite small, it will become increasingly important as trade increases between Iran and Russia, and securing that trade route is imperative. Commodore Irani has sought to "establish total superiority in the Caspian Sea to ensure the protection of Iran's trade, if necessary."
For expansion of the Caspian Fleet, Iran has shown interest in acquiring Russian-made Gepard 5.3 class frigates, and Buyan class corvettes, of the Project 21635 Sarsar variant. In reality, the Caspian navies are not particularly large, Iran's Caspian fleet has no need to be large, however, Iran needs to modernize what it has currently in the Caspian, and Russian-built vessels are the best way to meet these requirements.

Expanding Operational Capabilities to the Indian Ocean

While Iran will be developing some capabilities in the Caspian Sea, its primary focus in terms of naval policy will be on expanding its combat operation capabilities further into the Indian Ocean. As Russia has showed interest in building a surface and submarine fleet for Iran, the Commodore has officially put in a request with the Islamic Consultative to work with the Russians to commission a modern attack submarine fleet, and a modern surface strike group that can contribute to Iranian air and ground operations in the areas around the Indian Ocean. To do so, Commodore Irani has begun looking into Improved Kilo class submarines, which Iran's submariners will already be familiar with. Regarding surface vessels, Iran has been looking into Gremyashchiy class corvettes, and potentially Admiral Gorshkov class frigates to replace Iran's very aged frigates.
For the most part, any significant upgrade of Iran's fleet will be a replacement of its aging ships. For example, half of Iran's frigates have been commissioned since the early 70s, her corvettes since the 60s, and some ships even earlier than that. Iran has never exactly prioritized its navy, and this has not changed in any of the Ministry of Defense's rhetoric towards the navy, as all indications are clear that the Army and Air Force will continue to be the Islamic Republic's bread and butter. The expansion of the navy occurring in 2024, is rather an inevitable upgrade that was far long overdue so that Iran may maintain and nominally expand its capabilities out into the Indian Ocean further through technological upgrades.

2023.05.25 00:46 vatavaran Would I be crazy to trade-in my 10.2" iPad for an 11" MBA?

I'm a fun-sized university student: a skinny and short twink. As the main computer in my dorm, I use the 13-inch MacBook Air M1, which does everything I need. I seriously love the horsepower this device offers for my writing and content creation needs, but bringing it to university in a ruggedized Thule sleeve has been killing my back. It takes the largest amount of weight in my backpack and it's becoming cumbersome to lug around.
I kept my Mac at home and brought my 2021 10.2-inch iPad with Smart Keyboard to university. The problem: I keep buying and selling this particular iPad model (and now I'm considering to sell it, again). Even with it's ultra-portability, there's no way the iPad with it's software limitations and touch interface can replace a full-fledged computer for me. I don't know how students are using this device, but it doesn't fit my multitasking needs. There are times I have to skim through twenty PDF sources with multiple instances of Safari running next to each other and my lectures are too fast-paced to take handwritten notes. Besides that, I'm an amateur screenwriter and the iPad versions of Scrivener and Final Draft are not as feature-packed as their Mac counterparts.
Seeking the ultimate university computing device is driving me crazy. I tried a Windows convertible with a vast array of ports, but I was far too deep into the Apple ecosystem to combine it with my Mac, even when my university offers working in the cloud with a Microsoft 365 subscription. So I narrowed down my search to the now obsolete 11-inch MacBook Air models as a secondary computer. I can sell my iPad set-up for 300 EUR, and buy the Mac I want in like-new condition for the same price. I'm aware it's a severely outdated and underpowered notebook, but this particular model is still popular across office workers and writers for it's portability and feature-set - and I think I can get even more use out of it, when compared to my iPad, which has been sitting in my drawer ever since I worked my ass off to buy it two months ago.
Would this be a crazy decision? With a patcher, the 11-inch MacBook Air will probably outlast the iPad. There are no alternatives for those who seek MacOS on an affordable, ultra-portable machine. The 12-inch MacBook is still too expensive on the used market and is plagued with issues and the iPads with Stage Manager are nearing 600 EUR. And I cannot stress how tired I am of all the additional, expensive accessories I need to convert a tablet into a half-decent computer.
