If you can keep your foot off the gas, the CX-30 Turbo's engine produces terrific torque and reasonable fuel efficiency

 but it's not the most exciting powertrain. Even then, it doesn't want to go above 5,000 rpm 

because the revs cut off at about 6,200 rpm.

Then, when you can hear it, it doesn't sound particularly pleasant.

 This isn't a criticism of its turbo-four design, as the Hyundai Elantra N and Veloster N both make excellent rackets

The driver-centric driving posture in this car also felt a little bit smaller than I'm used to in cars this size.

 Why can't more drivetrains that aren't ZF shift this well?
