Friendship club marks 30 years

• By Jess Gibson

THE SUMNER-Redcliffs

Friendship Club tucked

into cake for breakfast as its

members celebrated 30 years

since the group formed.

It was the first time the club

for retired or semi-retired

women had met back at Our

Lady Star of the Sea in Sumner

following the Covid-19 lockdown.

Honorary life member Robyn

Gosset, 89, said it was great

to get back with old friends

during the commemoration on

July 6.

Since 1990, women in the

area have been able to connect

and discuss a range of intellectual

and cultural interests

on the first Monday of every

month.

“We still have several early

members in their 90s,” Mrs

Gosset said.

She said the club has always

followed the same programme

of having a mini-speaker and

morning tea, before listening to

an invited guest speaker.

There are also monthly trips

to “interesting spots around

Canterbury.”

Calls for

parking

restrictions

near wharf

at Diamond

Harbour

• By Jess Gibson

PARKING PROBLEMS near the

Diamond Harbour wharf have

sparked a proposal for restrictions

in two areas.

There are currently no restrictions

at the car parks beside the wharf

and at the Stoddart Point main

parking area.

It has attracted freedom campers,

and others using the spaces all day,

which creates problems for people

needing to park their cars and

commute across Lyttelton Harbour

on Black Cat Cruises’ ferry.

Black Cat Cruises chief executive

Paul Milligan said parking has been

an issue for “quite some time.”

“It is an area that needs to be

managed and controlled to make

it fair for everyone. Obviously, for

our customers, we’d like to see as

much parking available as possible.”

The city council is asking for

feedback on a consultation to

change the area beside the wharf to

have six parking spaces with P180

restrictions, keep eight unrestricted

parking spaces and retain two

mobility parking spaces.

Maori place names reinstated

• By Jess Gibson

DYERS PASS will now be known

as Pukeatua/Dyers Pass – the te

reo name translating to “hills of

the gods.”

The popular route used to

travel between Lyttelton Harbour

and the central city is one of

13 place names across Banks

Peninsula to have its Maori

history restored as requested by

Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke.

portfolio chairman Donald

Couch, who has worked with Te

Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and the

New Zealand Geographic Board

on the proposals said a lot of

work had gone into getting the

names formally recognised.

“Puke” means hill, and Mr

Couch said the word “atua” is

a general term for gods which

could be used generally to cover

different Maori figures.

Historically the location was

known as Pukeatua, it then

became Dyers Pass in 1942 after

well-known farmer John Dyer.

From all parts of the globe to Sumner,

Lee Barraclough’s

business Skydiving Kiwis

is set to launch a new

attraction later this month

or in August, which will

allow people to skydive

out of a helicopter onto

Sumner Beach. Matt

Slaughter talked to

him about this and the

experiences he has

had in his 17 years as a

skydiver

Tell me about your job and

how you make a living?

I’ve been a skydiving

instructor now for 17 years.

Basically, at the moment I’ve

been living in Sumner. In 2003, I

learnt to skydive and then I spent

12 years travelling around the

world chasing the sun.

I came back to New Zealand

in 2011, just after the earthquake

and set up Skydiving Kiwis and

since then, we’ve been doing

commercial skydiving with

tandem skydiving and also

student training and advanced

sports skydiving training as well.

Where did the idea of jumping

out of a helicopter onto Sumner

Beach come from and what will

people experience?

What I looked at doing

THE 2020 GENERAL ELECTION

AND REFERENDUMS

What does it feel like to

skydive?

For a first-time skydiver, it

can be one of the most scariest

things that you ever do, I guess,

and I never try to tell anybody

otherwise, but then the feeling

once you actually leave the plane

and step into the wind, or you

drop into the wind, is one of

the most freeing, exhilarating

feelings that you can ever

experience in your life.

Once you jump out, you’re

flying, man. There’s not a word

in the dictionary for that feeling.

How did your passion for

skydiving develop?

In 2001, I did my first tandem

and then in 2003 I did my first

solo and for me, at the time,

like, I hadn’t really been an

aircraft before, so I was a bit

unsure of what all the dials in

the aircraft meant and that was

the only thing that really kind

of confused me a little bit and

then as soon as that door opened

and that entrance to kind of the

world of the bird was before me,

then the feeling was inside me

that I was actually at home. It

was something that I saw on TV

when I was about nine-years-old

and since that moment I said to

my mum that as soon as I get the

spare money, mum, what I want

to do is go skydiving.

boyhood skydiving dream comes true

Where are some of the best

places in the world that you

have skydived?

Without being biased, New

Zealand has got the best

scenery on the planet and then

Christchurch and Canterbury,

it’s in me just like it is in every

Cantabrian. When I was

travelling around the world

though, I guess, California

because it never ever rains, it’s

about 40 deg C all the time,

so enabling you to be able to

go skydiving every single day

was something that was pretty

awesome there.

I’ve skydived on some paradise

islands like Mauritius, the

Canary Islands, and that is part

of the reason why I really like

jumping onto the beach and

around the ocean because the

views are so spectacular.

Have you had any close calls

skydiving in the past?

I guess I’ve probably used my

reserve parachute in my high

performance jumps probably

nine or 10 times and it’s

something that we’re trained to

do since the day that we begin

skydiving.

I remember one time at the

Australian nationals when I was

leading the competition, and

then I had a malfunction on

my competition jump and then,

unfortunately, because of the

upper winds, my parachute flew

seven miles away. Luckily for me,

what happened after that was the

winds became too over the limit

to carry on the competition, so

we went flying in the little Cessna

[plane] and we actually managed

to find my parachute, but it also

meant that the competition went

on hold and I was able to actually

get all my gear back together

and, once the winds died down,

then I was able to carry on the

competition and I remember

coming home with a gold medal,

which was pretty nice.

Have you had any injuries

skydiving?

The only injury that I’ve really

had was at the Copenhagen

World Freestyle Challenge and

that was in 2016.

We would fly our parachutes

down and there was a 25m by 6m

inflatable raft and then what we

PASSION: Lee

Barraclough

has been

skydiving for 17

years with the

sport taking

him all over the

world.

would do is, for about 100m prior

to the raft, we would perform

freestyle tricks on the water and

then try to land on the raft. So,

what I did was actually do a trick

that had never been done before,

and it was my own personal trick,

which involved sliding on the

water, letting go of my controls

and then just popping up a little,

grabbing both my feet behind

my back and then [getting] back

onto the controls and landing on

the raft. It wasn’t really a crash

landing, it was just more of an

awkward landing with the

speed I had onto the raft and

I ended up tearing my labrum

inside of my shoulder and that

meant shoulder surgery at the

start of 2017 and a three-year

recovery, but I did end up

coming fifth in the world for that

competition.

Have you taken any famous

or memorable people skydiving?

There were a couple of famous

people overseas, like, I took one

of the most famous Bollywood

actresses one time and that was

in Mauritius.

In New Zealand, I wouldn’t

really say famous. Some of the

things that stick out though was

one time I took a 94-year-old

blind lady on Christmas Eve and

she came and wore a Santa suit. It

was pretty cool. Other than that,

I’ve taken the Bachelorette in

New Zealand.

Who will be the first person

to skydive onto Sumner Beach?

That’s a bit of a secret. It’s

somebody from the local

[Sumner] area that has lived

there for nearly 50 years and he

actually got hold of us and he

himself is actually around the

90-year-old-mark and that’s

about all I’m allowed to say.

What are your

hobbies outside of

skydiving?

I really love surfing and,

these days, I spend a lot of

time working a lot more

with the tourism board

and actually pushing a

little bit outside of just

skydiving and working

more with Christchurch as

a whole.

What are the best

results you have had at

the competitions you have

competed at?

At the end of last year at

the World Cup in South

Africa, it was my first

competition back after

three years from

my shoulder recovery

and I came back with

two records, the

Oceanic record

and the New Zealand

record for distance in

canopy piloting. That

would be the pinnacle

so far. My personal

goal is to get the gold

medal next year at

the Russian world

championships for

distance for canopy

piloting.

What does your family

think of your skydiving

and what you do for a

living?

I’ve got family, mum

and dad and a brother

and sister here in New

Zealand and since day one

they’ve just pushed me to

be whoever it is that I want

to be. So, although the

first time I rang my mum

and told her about my first

ever malfunction, it was a

is the thing that has made

Questions over freedom campers raised

• From page 1

At the Stoddart Point car

park there is a proposal to

make 16 unrestricted parks become

6am to 6pm parks from

Monday to Friday, mainly for

commuters.

Fourteen unrestricted

parking spaces and one mobility

parking space would be

retained at this area.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Scott

“But you can’t please everyone,”

future.

EQC and insurance

claims – still relevant

to property purchases

Charlotte Grimshaw,

Associate at Saunders & Co reports:

Conveyancing in Christchurch and

Canterbury can be a trickier task than in other

parts of New Zealand due to the Canterbury

Earthquakes and their effect on the process.

Unless you are buying a property that was built

post quakes, you need to be aware of what

damage occurred from the quake events, and

whether it has been repaired.

To assist the sale process, a seller should be

able to provide a prospective purchaser with

information on all claims including scope(s)

of damage and evidence of repairs such as

sign offs by EQC/ Fletcher Building and their

contractors for a managed repair, or payout

letters and invoices for repairs completed

(where cash settled and the seller organized

the repairs). The same should be provided for

land and insurance claims.

If any repairs are outstanding, it is important

for purchasers to be informed of what

remains unrepaired and whether the vendor

will be crediting the funds paid out for the

repairs on settlement or not. Providing

such information is also helpful for aiding

purchasers in being able to obtain satisfactory

insurance cover and finance.

If buying or selling an “as is where is

property” (where no repairs have been

completed and all benefits under the

claims are being retained by the seller), it is

especially important for both parties to seek

legal advice on the contents of any Agreement

for Sale and Purchase before entering it, and

the implications of the uncompleted repairs.

It is also now the standard process for non

“as is where is” property sales for remaining

rights in EQC claims to be assigned by

the seller to purchaser on settlement via a

document called a Deed of Assignment.

This Deed informs EQC about the transfer

of the property and who is taking over

any remaining benefit in the EQC claims

lodged for the property from the settlement

date. Having rights assigned then allows

purchasers to deal with EQC regarding such

claims in the future, such as settling unsettled

claims or dealing with further quake damage

if found.

when I was 16, it came out when

I was 17, which was Jezebel. It was

released and three weeks later it

was No 1 and all of a sudden, I

was famous in New Zealand.

“It [music] was something

that I didn’t pursue at all, it

was like a happy accident

actually because it wasn’t

something I was actually into

doing,” he said.

But Stevens, who is entertainer

Frankie Stevens’ brother, couldn’t

stay away from music, and more

than four decades later, he is set

to headline Selwyn Sounds on

March 6 at Lincoln Domain.

Jon Stevens is best known

for being the lead singer of

Noiseworks. He was also lead

singer of legendary Australian

band INXS for four years after

former frontman Michael

Hutchence died.

The Selwyn Sounds crowd can

expect Stevens to belt out a set

of hits from both of these bands

when he takes the stage.

Said Stevens: “I’ve got a

pretty good setlist going with,

obviously, both bands’ songs.

ROCKING OUT: Jon

Stevens will be performing

a set including songs from

Noiseworks and INXS at

Selwyn Sounds on March 6.

You can’t please everybody, but

nobody’s disappointed ever.

“It’s just hit after hit, you

know,” he said.

Stevens said these hits will

include INXS songs Need You

Tonight, Don’t Change and

Suicide Blonde and Noiseworks’

Hot Chilli Woman.

Stevens fronted INXS in the

early 2000s after Hutchence’s

death in 1997 and toured with

the band for four years.

“When I joined INXS, it was

just one of those things where it

seemed like a perfectly natural

fit and it was, and it’s something

that I know, and we all knew,

Michael would have been more

than happy for me to do because

we were compadres.”

Stevens said he and Hutchence

had “mutual admiration” for

each other.

“He [Hutchence] was a very

warm and engaging fellow. He

was a lovely bloke [with] charisma

to burn. One thing people didn’t

realise about Michael was he had

a really, really big voice, it was

really so loud.

“Because his subtlety in his

lower register was just incredible

and his tone was incredible,

when he jumped up an octave

and started belting it out, it was

just like, man, so full-on, and

that’s probably a big part of his

magic,” he said.

Stevens is looking forward

to the Selwyn Sounds crowd

hearing his spin on the INXS

songs and said he has the band’s

blessing to perform them.

He also said he is looking

forward to seeing the huge

Kiwi lineup set to take the

stage at Selwyn Sounds and his

highlights will be seeing Stan

Walker, The Jordan Luck Band,

The Lady Killers and Annie

Crummer.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit

organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of

New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands.

Each week she introduces a new bird found

in the estuary. Her column aims to raise the

understanding of the values and uniqueness of the area.

Help save swamp harrier

THE SWAMP harrier is New

Zealand’s largest native bird

of prey – a stunning creature

with a wingspan of 1m. It is an

awesome sight when you see it

soaring above the estuary and

nearby paddocks.

We don’t have a lot of them

here but 16 were counted last

summer. They do actually get

chased out of the area by the

bossy and territorial magpies

and spur-winged plover who are

much smaller, but not afraid to

dive bomb the harrier.

The harrier has a good and

varied appetite and its prey

includes rats, mice, lizards, insects,

small birds, frogs but also

carrion (roadkill), particularly

during winter when other prey is

harder to find.

No doubt you have all seen a

harrier feeding on carrion such

as hedgehogs, rabbit, possum

or even pukeko. Unfortunately,

though, this is the main cause of

death of our harriers.

What we can do to help in

this case is when you see a dead

animal on the road; pull over

when it is safe to do so, and if

you are brave enough, use a

stick, a branch, gloves, a plastic

bag or piece of paper to pick

up the dead animal and place

far enough away from the road

where it is safe for the harrier to

eat.

The harrier nests on the

ground or low scrub, flax bushes

or raupo where the female will

incubate eggs on her own as well

as having to feed her chicks. But

wait . . . the male will help here

by finding food for the female to

save her leaving the nest for too

long.

This all happens during

an awesome aerial display

where she flies upside down

underneath the male for him to

pass on his catch of the day to

her to be passed on to the chicks

and to feed herself.

In with

the New!

Well-known furniture retailer Target Furniture has taken

the opportunity to open their latest store in central

Christchurch – and it is certainly different from anything

Christchurch shoppers have seen before.

Target Furniture has had a long-term presence in

Christchurch and has now relocated and reinvented

the shopping experience for customers with this new

concept store.

The large, open store has gone and been replaced with

a showroom that encourages customers to explore and

discover more as they stroll through rooms that have

been created to showcase the furniture. Target has

partnered with Resene to illustrate the types of colours

that are proving popular in New Zealand homes, and

these are incorporated into the displays.

“Furniture shopping should be fun, easy, inspirational

and a highlight of the customer’s shopping year,” says

Rob.

“The new store is a result of significant local and

international research, a considerable amount of recent

experimentation in existing stores and feedback from

customers,” says company director Rob Bielby.

Technology is another innovative feature of the new

store. Unlike traditional ticketing and signage, most of

the signage is now digital, creating a more personalised

message for customers and telling more about the

Target story and the services they offer.

Target is one of the first major retailers to use QR

(Quick Response) labels. This allows customers to scan

the ticket on their phone to get immediate access to

detailed information on the furniture, including sizes,

materials, guarantees, availability, and other items in the

range.

Brochures are also available with details of the different

furniture ranges for customers not wanting to go digital,

Rob says, while staff are always on hand to answer

questions and offer advice.

There is also a digital kiosk equipped with computers

where customers can log onto the Target website and

view the 2500-plus products online, with images also

displayed on Facebook and Instagram.

“We aim to highlight all the shopping options we offer

– digital and instore. Our point of difference is the

experience and we cater for all our customers’ shopping

preferences – from totally digital to totally bricks and

mortar.”

Prompt delivery is an important part of the customer

experience, Rob adds.

“We have invested in our own fleet of trucks and are

committed to regular weekly deliveries in Christchurch. Our

goal is to have furniture delivered into Christchurch within

10 days of being ordered, if it is available in our Auckland

distribution centre.”

Target Furniture is located on the ground-floor level of the

Spotlight building on the corner of Moorhouse Avenue and

Durham Street, with several other furniture outlets in the

vicinity.

“This encourages customers to the area as they have more

options to look at,” Rob says, “and while customers do

have a choice, we believe we know how to buy for Kiwi

homes, and offer furniture that gives people the chance to

add a dash of luxury to their home without it costing an arm

and a leg.

“Target is determined to shake up the traditional furniture

retail landscape making fashionable, practical and

affordable furniture available to everyone in a shopping

environment that surprises and delights.”

Target Moorhouse is the first of the new-generation stores

and the concept will be rolled out to all existing stores and

new stores that are planned.

Tasty Bites

Kiwifruit and lime - a match made in heaven

This kiwifruit lime pie is

a delicious gluten and

dairy-free frozen dessert.

It’s sweetened with

maple syrup and naturally

flavoured with fresh lime

juice, coconut and kiwifruit.

Pure decadence

Kiwifruit and lime pie

Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Grain-

Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Vegan,

Paleo

Ingredients

Gluten-free pecan crust

1 cup dates (pits removed)

1 cup raw pecans

½ cup coconut flakes

1 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of sea salt

Filling and topping

2 cups raw unsalted cashews,

soaked

⅔ cups fresh squeezed lime juice

(about 4 limes)

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup maple syrup

½ cup full-fat coconut milk

(canned)

¼ cup avocado

¼ cup coconut oil

5-6 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced

Directions

Place the cashews in a large

bowl and pour hot water over top.

Let them to soak for 1 hour prior

to making the pie filling.

To make the crust: Add all of

the crust ingredients to a food

processor and process until quite

finely and evenly ground.

Add the crust mixture to either

a pie pan or a 20cm round cake

pan. If using a pie pan you do

not need to grease the pan or use

baking paper, and can simply

press the crust mixture down to

form a flat crust.

If using a round cake pan

instead you should line the pan

with baking paper that has been

cut in a circle to fit the bottom of

the pan.

You will also want to cut

two strips of baking paper to

approximately 5 x 35cm and

lie them criss-cross across the

bottom of the pan.

This will make the pie easy to

remove to serve from another

platter once frozen for a more

impressive presentation.

Add the crust mixture on top

of the paper layers and compress

it firmly to create a solid crust

by pressing firmly down using

your hands over another piece of

baking paper to prevent sticking.

To make the filling: Drain the

water from the cashews and place

them in a blender along with all

of the other ingredients for the

filling except for the kiwifruit.

Blend on high until smooth,

scraping the sides of the blender

with a spatula as needed.

Pour the filling over top of the

crust and freeze for 1-2 hours

until the pie is partially set.

Remove the pie from the

freezer and layer the sliced

kiwifruit in a decorative

arrangement on top of the pie.

Place the pie back into the

freezer and let set another 1-2

hours prior to serving. Store the

pie in the freezer and remove to

thaw for 30min to soften prior

to serving. Cut any leftovers into

individual portions so they can

easily be enjoyed as a single serve

dessert later instead of repeatedly

thawing out the entire pie.

Master jeweller in Lyttelton

AWARD

winning

master

jeweller

Julian

Harding

(Jules) has

recently

opened a

new studio

in Lyttelton.

Jules has been involved in Canterbury’s

jewellery industry for over 40 years

with latter years spent running his own

business.

During this time he has earned a strong

reputation as a skilled craftsman. He is

not only a renowned designer and creator

of fine jewellery, but he also repairs,

alters and remodels any jewellery.

“I enjoy designing and hand-making

unique pieces of jewellery that capture

the true essence of my customers,” said

Jules. “I also love the challenge of remodelling,

restoration and repair work.”

It’s this work that Jules says keeps him

up to date with trends and appeals to his

creative mind.

But it’s not just jewellery. Jules is

willing to look at repair and restoration

of any precious keepsake - from a teapot

to a tiara!

Located at 8 London St, Jules’ studio

reflects his dynamic personality.

Filled with a menagerie of eclectic

treasures, including caged budgies,

canaries and finches, the studio is

warm and welcoming as Jules works

from his station. Comfy armchairs

offer a relaxed area for consultation

and there is an interesting array of

jewellery and trinkets on display for

sale.

There is no middle man. You deal

directly with Jules, so you can get

an honest appraisal for repairs and

restoration on the spot. And if you’re

wanting something made, you’ll

get an exclusive, handmade and

unique creation designed and crafted

exclusively for you. Jules is a specialist

in engagement and wedding ring

design.

“I guarantee your piece will cost no

more than a mass produced item from a

retail jewellery shop. In fact you will save

money.”

Jules is usually on site, but recommends

phoning to book consultations. He is

also open Saturdays during the Lyttelton

Market.

Mazda expands its SUV line-up

MAZDA COULDN’T put it more

simply, its new crossover sport

utility vehicle – the CX-30 – is

bigger than a CX-3 and smaller

than a CX-5.

I once wrote that the CX-3 was

my favourite car in the whole

Mazda line-up, but that feeling

wasn’t shared by everyone, it took

a lot of criticism for a lack of space

in the rear seating compartment.

My argument was that if you were

mostly driving with one or two-up,

then that became irrelevant.

Whichever way you look at it,

those who were captured by the

CX-3’s dynamics everywhere else

will find the CX-30 a fabulous

driving vehicle, and it gets the

benefit of extra space in the rear

seats, along with increased load

space. Of course, the CX-30

also shares the DNA of its other

stablemates that span a wide crosssection

of the SUV market, there’s

a size for all families depending on

how many travel in the vehicle on a

daily basis.

The CX-30 is also priced midway

between CX-3 and CX-5, there

are three variants – GSX, GTX

and Limited – the range starts at

$41,490 for a 2-litre model, the

other two are 2.5-litre powered

and list at $44,990 and $50,990

respectively. Factor in the 2.5-litre

The World’s Worst Parents

by David Walliams, Tony Ross

Millions of young readers have loved the World’s Worst Children tales

and revelled in the World’s Worst Teachers with their delightfully dreadful

deeds – now prepare for…THE WORLD’S WORST PARENTS! From the

phenomenally bestselling David Walliams and illustrated in glorious

colour by the artistic genius, Tony Ross.

Are you ready to meet the worst parents ever?

Sure, some parents are embarrassing – but they’re NOTHING on this

lot. These ten tales of the world’s most spectacularly silly mums and

deliriously daft dads will leave you rocking with laughter.

Pinch your nose for Peter Pong, the man with the stinkiest feet in the

world… jump out of the way of Harriet Hurry, the fastest mum on two

WIN THIS BOOK

variants are four-wheel-drive, the

2-litre engine drives out the front

wheels only.

I’m scheduled into all three

variants, and I’m really looking

forward to the two remaining drives

– the CX-30 is a smart piece of kit,

and if you have read any of my recent

Mazda evaluations you’ll notice that a

pattern has developed, I’m constantly

saying the product that is coming

out of the Mazda factories is high on

quality and desire.

My first drive was the mid-spec

model, and even though it doesn’t

get all the bells and whistles it will

still satisfy, I particularly like it for its

cloth trim, I don’t need leather. It took

me many years to fully relate to the

traditional sport utility vehicle, and

now I can see their appeal through

functionality and practicality, and

you can’t help but being impressed

with the way the CX-30 drives and

handles, it has form and function

built into every aspect.

Under the bonnet sits the fourcylinder

2488cc engine, there are

no surprises here, it is an engine

that has been utilised by Mazda

for several years in this form. It’s

part of a SkyActive range that has

been constantly upgraded and

engineered for maximum efficiency

both in terms of power outputs and

fuel efficiency.

CX-30: Comprehensive series that fits seamlessly into Mazda’s

range of SUVs.

It is rated with 139kW and

252Nm, both outputs realised at

traditional points in the rev band –

6000 and 4000rpm respectively. The

engine is coupled to a six-speed

automatic transmission, also very

traditional. But the reality of this is

that over time and development the

two main engineering pieces work

perfectly together, the electronic

mapping between the two is fluid

and, of course, very smooth.

This engine works well in the

CX-30, of course it feels more

responsive than what it does in

the CX-5 because of the weight

difference between the two models,

the CX-30 feels feisty and vibrant,

responding willingly to throttle

application and is always hooked

into the right gearing.

The norm these days is to

incorporate driver-selectable

engine management modes and

the CX-30 is no exception,

although there is just a choice of

two, the default mode being

a normal setting which I use

almost always. There is also a

sport mode which is selfexplanatory,

it is there for when

overtaking opportunities present

themselves and it is also useful

for that long hill climb through

to Akaroa, it keeps the engine

working in the point of strength

and maximum delivery.

Mazda claim fuel usage figures

of 6.8-litres per 100km for the

2.5 engine on a combined cycle

average. I tried reaching that figure

as a target but couldn’t quite get

there. When I took the evaluation

vehicle back to the dealership it

was listing at around 7.4l/100km,

which was promisingly close.

At 100km/h on the highway the

engine is quite relaxed working

away at 1900rpm, at that speed

it sips fuel instantaneously at the

• Price – Mazda CX-30 GTX,

$44,990

• Dimensions – Length,

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

six-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.3sec

• Fuel usage – 6.8l/100km

rate of 6l/100km. That translates to

economical motoring if you are on

that long road trip.

As you would expect from a

company that has long had a

history of sports car development,

the CX-30 also handles with a

feel that is most unlike a tall sport

utility vehicle. Sure, at 1.54m there

is a bit of body movement, even

with moderate spring and damper

firming there is going to be some

gravitational transition, but it

is well arrested and occupants

aren’t lurched through directional

changes.

It must also be pointed out that

four-wheel-drive also has on-seal

grip and handling benefits, the

CX-30 feels well attached to the

road surface and that is a key safety

ingredient. It works alongside the

suite of safety features that Mazda

has long developed in all of its

product range.

The CX-30 is far more than a

stretched CX-3, it draws on all the

fundamentals sport utility vehicles

require, and packages them in a

comprehensive range.
