The BBR kits are available for Mazda’s latest 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine, with the most aggressive offering a maximum of 221bhp

Following the success of its 2016 MX-5 tuning kits, the British tuning company BBR has launched a pair of new performance packages for the 2019 Mazda MX-5. Called the Super 200 and the Super 220, the kits include a range of mechanical and software upgrades capable of extracting up to 221bhp from the car’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G engine.

BBR’s Super 200 package includes a four-into-one stainless steel exhaust manifold, a cold air intake system, a K&N high flow air filter and an engine management system remap. It provides the Mazda MX-5 with 202bhp and 224Nm of torque, or 18bhp and 14Nm more than the engine’s standard tune.

The Super 200 package is available as a “drive-in, drive-out” conversion (which includes a dyno test for verification) at the BBR’s Brackley headquarters. Prices for the service start from £1,445 excluding VAT, although a discount is available for customers wishing to install it themselves bringing the cost down to £1,245.

BBR also offers a more potent tuning kit, called the Super 220. It adds to the Super 200 package, with a set of re-profiled camshafts and uprated valve springs and retainers. It provides an extra 36bhp and 15Nm over the MX-5’s standard tune, with figures of 221bhp and 225Nm of torque.

Like the firm’s lesser-powered tune, the Super 220 package can be installed in a day and comes with a dyno test for validation. It’s priced at £2,895 to have the package fitted by the BBR team, while a self-install package is also available for £2,235. Both prices exclude VAT.

The tuning firm also offers a range of brake and chassis upgrades for the new Mazda MX-5, including a set of own-brand high-performance springs and dampers (£695), a set of Ohlins adjustable coilovers (£1,695), six-piston calipers (£895) and a pair of Eibach anti roll bars (£312.25). All prices exclude VAT and fitting costs.

Hyundai i30 Fastback N vs Skoda Octavia vRS Challenge

2019-06-18 11:40 The Hyundai i30 Fastback N and Skoda Octavia vRS Challenge major on both practicality and performance, but which hot hatch does it best? Hyundai launched its i30 N hot hatch in 2017 and the car immediately made a splash, upsetting the status quo and ruffling the feathers of models such as the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Peugeot 308 GTi. In top Performance spec, however, the Korean hot hatch is undoubtedly a hardcore car, so with the addition of this longer, sleeker i30 Fastback N, the company has softened it off slightly to make it easier to live with. The new bodystyle puts it squarely in the firing line of the Skoda Octavia vRS Challenge – a big hatchback with plenty of performance to rival the Hyundai. Both match up on price, with only £105 difference in the Hyundai’s favour. However, the i30 N also performs a little better on paper. Let’s find out which is the best all-rounder.
