The Mazda CX-30, a taller Mazda 3 wagon?

The Mazda CX-30, a taller Mazda 3 wagon?

For today, it's the Mazda CX-30!

So, what is the Mazda CX-30? A crossover? A Mazda 3 in taller boots? Let Jon tell you all about it!

In the simplest of terms, this is what the Mazda CX-30 is.

But if you still don't really understand what Jon means.... Yes. The CX-30 is the taller version of the Mazda 3 Hatchback.

Mazda's Kodo design language is arguably one of the best design languages in the car industry, currently, at least to this writer. The Kodo design language carries itself around pretty well, from sedan to SUV, and it almost seems like Mazda can do no wrong with it.

Not the most generous boot capacity, admittedly.

But, the CX-30 has a flat load floor! Perfect if you want to transport bigger or bulkier items like a bicycle or IKEA furniture. No weird hump in the middle of the car floor to give you difficulty.

At Jon's height, he still has a decent amount of legroom. Not to mention, the leather in the CX-30 is quite a lovely colour.

But yes, headroom is a drawback. Especially since there is a sunroof. So, taller people, do take note. Jon still has some headroom but it isn't much.

This writer daresays Mazda is killing it with the design of the dashboard layout. Clean, simple lines with a rectangular screen positioned at an optimal angle, and with physical buttons for the important things like air-conditioning and music control. It's really intuitive.

Took the words right out of this writer's mouth you did, Jon.

Well, with these power levels, you won't be winning many traffic light races. But hey, it's more than enough for overtaking on the expressway, plus Mazda's SkyActiv engines do make their cars feel a little more brisk than what the spec sheet claims to be.

    Is the Audi RS5 Sportback a match for its rivals?

    Looking for a German performance sedan? The Audi RS5 offers plenty of performance with 444bhp and 600Nm of torque. And boy is Idris excited to get behind the wheel in this video review! Wouldn't we all? And as you would expect from a Sportback from Audi, it is quite the looker as well. But this RS5 comes with plenty of practical features as well. Despite offering so much performance, there's space for our usual luggage test in the boot! And being a four-door, you'd expect sufficient space for your passengers as well, and the RS5 delivers. Unfortunately it looks like that touchscreen is a bit of a stretch away when you're seated at the front... And how does it drive? Very impressively it seems! Watch the full video to see and hear more of the Audi RS5 on the road!  You'll want to!

    Driver forgets there's a bicycle on his car, gets stuck at MCP entrance

    Watch this video posted by Singapore incidents, and you find this Skoda Kodiaq who is ferrying his prized offroad bicycle on top of his roof rack got stuck in the carpark gantry in Midview City at Sin Ming. So here's my suggestion for the forgetful driver. 1) Use a rear bicycle mount. Just remember to go to your nearest accessories shop to get an extra car plate to hang after you mount your bicycle. 2) Get air suspension for your ride     MCFers remember your car surrounding when you are driving to avoid an awkward situation like this!

    Young punk knocked out in one punch from older man in parking lot fight!

    Have we found Singapore's 'One-punch-man'? For those who don't know that character, it is a Japanese superhero franchise who features Saitama, a superhero who can defeat any opponent with a single punch and seeks to find a worthy foe after growing bored by a lack of challenge due to his overwhelming strength. Shared among various whatapp chats and from Facebook pages from late last night is this video where by 4 men could be seen fighting in Golden Mile Complex carpark. At around the 27 second mark, this grey singlet dude threw a big one at one of the men, knocking him out clean. Not that we encourage fighting but that is pretty 'One-punch-man' moment.  It is unclear what started the fight. Check out what netizens have to say about this incident!

    Is this guy trying to be police or funny?

    Hello nieces and nephews, this is your uncle Koba here again. Hello. Today, we have this guy who is trying too hard to fulfil his boyhood dream of becoming traffic police. Spotted on Road.sg, this Honda ST1300 - a road touring bike which is kinda familiar to our SPF choice of weapon, the Yamaha XJ900T. Let's have a look. Wait a sec. Fuiyoh! He is a whole package! A long long time ago, there must be young handsome traffic police who gave him a helping and makes him remember how cool traffic police is and since then, he got inspired to becoming one. Alrighty, so nieces and nephews, please take a second look at our traffic police when you spotted one. It may and may not be one.
