2019 Mazda CX-5 Finally Gets a Turbo Engine

2019 Mazda CX-5 Finally Gets a Turbo Engine

https://www.autoguide.com/?p=740358


The 2019 Mazda CX-5 has finally debuted with a new turbo engine, addressing one of the common complaints about the crossover.

The refreshed CX-5 gains the option of a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque from just 2,000 rpm (using premium fuel), which is a lot for its class. This engine was first offered in the CX-9 and can also be found in the Mazda6. The naturally aspirated engine will continue to be offered as a base engine, and it’s still pretty good, but the CX-5 has been begging for a turbo to really compliment its fun driving dynamics.

Mazda is still proudly not offering a CVT — a six-speed automatic is still the transmission of choice for the CX-5. G-Vectoring Control Plus (the company’s unique torque vectoring system) is also now standard on all CX-5s. In addition, Mazda has made tweaks to the suspension and steering to further enhance the sportiness and luxury vibe the Japanese brand is so well known for.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now available, which addresses another one of our complaints with the CX-5. Other new features include folding side mirrors, a customizable digital gauge cluster, and ventilated front seats.

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 goes on sale this fall and will also be available in a new Signature trim. The Mazda CX-5 was AutoGuide.com‘s Utility Vehicle of the Year for 2018.
