FIRST LOOK: 2020 Mazda CX-30 in M’sia – fr RM143k

As you know, Mazda Malaysia just added the CX-30 to its local line-up of cars, with this slotting between the CX-3 and CX-5 in terms of price and size. Three variants are available, starting with the base 2.0 at RM143k, 2.0 High at RM164k, and the range-topping 1.8D at RM173k. Included is a five-year/100,000 km manufacturer-backed warranty and a five-year free maintenance package.

Powering this car is a 2.0 litre Skyactiv-G powertrain that makes 162 hp at 6,000 rpm and 213 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, driving the front wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox. The range-topping 1.8 litre diesel, on the other hand, produces 116 PS at 4,000 rpm and 270 Nm of torque from 1,600 to 2,700 rpm. Like the Mazda 3, the front gets MacPherson struts, and the rear a torsion beam setup.

Equipment for the 2.0 High includes LED headlights with auto-levelling function (standard for all CX-30s), LED DRLs (mounted lower down as LED strips), keyless entry with push-start button, 18-inch wheels shod with 215/55 tyres, LED combination tail lights, and powered boot. Inside, it’s almost identical to the Mazda 3 hatch, but gains an additional dash trim with brown leather inserts.

There’s also the latest 8.8-inch full-colour infotainment display, complete with the new user interface and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A head-up display is available as well, as are 10-way powered driver seat (front passenger seat is manual), eight-speaker sound system, and reverse camera. Boot volume is rated at 430 litres, which expands to 1,432 litres with the rear seats folded.

For safety, the 2.0 High variant gets seven airbags including driver’s knee airbags, hill start assist, emergency stop signal, ISOFIX child seat mounts, and the usual three-lettered acronyms. There’s several i-ActivSense advanced safety systems here too, with adaptive front lighting, high beam control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, driver attention alert, smart city brake support (autonomous emergency braking) and radar-guided cruise control.

QUICK LOOK: 2020 Honda Accord 1.5L VTEC Turbo and 2.0L i-MMD Sport Hybrid in Thailand – fr RM216k

The 10th-generation Honda Accord, which was just launched in Australia last week, has actually been on sale in Thailand since May this year. The D-segment sedan features an all-new design, and along with it are new powertrains as well.

Let’s start with the 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo engine. This four-cylinder mill puts out 188 hp at 5,500 rpm and 260 Nm of torque from 1,600 to 5,000 rpm, and is paired with a CVT which drives the front wheels. The average fuel consumption is rated at 6.5 litres per 100 km, with C02 emissions rated at 149 grams per km.

More interestingly is the new, third-generation hybrid powertrain developed by Honda, called the Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD). This is a two-motor hybrid system that assist the 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine, which altogether make a combined system output of 212 hp from 5,000 rpm to 6,000 rpm and 315 Nm of torque from zero to 2,000 rpm. The combined fuel economy is 4.3 l/100 km, and CO2 emissions is 98 g/km.

Safety-wise, the Thai-spec Accord gets six airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, stability control, a tyre pressure monitoring system and Honda’s LaneWatch camera as standard. Hybrid models get the full Honda Sensing safety features, such as Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Warning (RDW) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Auto High Beam (AHB), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow (LSF), and Smart Parking Assist.

VIDEO: Nissan Ariya and IMk concepts on display at Tokyo Motor Show – previews new EV styling direction


At this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan presented two interesting concepts, the Ariya and IMk, with both said to preview a new design direction for the Japanese carmaker, which follows the theme of “Timeless Japanese Futurism.”

The Ariya takes the shape of a crossover, and features a more contemporary take on the company’s signature V-motion grille that is flanked by ultra-slim, four-element LED headlamps. Other highlights include a Suisei Blue paint finish, 21-inch aluminium wheels, a rear light blade and a minimalist interior that continues the minimalism approach.

According to Nissan, the Ariya is built on an all-new electric vehicle platform with a dual-motor drive configuration for all-wheel drive. While the company is coy with the specifics, it says that the powertrain provides optimum traction on slippery surfaces thanks to the knowledge gained from the development of the GT-R’s ATTESA E-TS torque split and Patrol’s Intelligent 4×4 systems.

On the other hand, the IMk sports a boxier look that is reminiscent of kei cars that are popular in Japan, with the dimensions to match. Finished in Akagane paint scheme, the EV show car’s numerous lines seen on the grille, bumpers, wheels, tyres, windows, tailights, roof and rear spoiler are a nod to the flowing patterns of mizuhiki, a thin twine made of Japanese rice paper.

Inside, the IMk continues to pay homage to Japanese craftsmanship with wood slats in the lower door section that points towards the wood joinery technique of kigumi. There are also modern touches here like bench-style seats with a dimpled texture and a bezel-less prism display for important driving information.

It’s certainly interesting to see the direction that Nissan is taking with its future models, and if you want to see more of both concepts beyond just static photos, we’ve prepared a brief video with live footage from the floors of this year’s Tokyo Motor Show. Enjoy, and share your thoughts about the two Nissan concepts in the comments below.
