When a brand decides its mantra is going to be “zoom zoom” the expectation is an exciting and impressive selection of models that have the acceleration that makes the vehicles fun to drive. For many years, the Mazda brand was able to add more fun and active driving with the SkyActiv technology offered in its selection of four-cylinder engines to give us plenty of power. Now, the call is for more power to come from these engines in order to give us the ride we want and more zoom from under the hood.
The CX-5 Adds Better Numbers
We’ve seen the use of turbocharging being offered for many of the models we drive to make them more fun on the roads that we drive every day. Mazda might have been stubborn about not needing to add a turbo for a while, but now it’s time. The 2019 version of the Mazda CX-5 will be powered by an impressive 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will give us 250 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. This power level is reached at only 2,000 rpm, making it one of the most powerful in its class and at a much lower rpm level than most.
More Under the Hood of the CX-5
The base engine of the Mazda CX-5 for 2019 is still a naturally aspirated version of the four-cylinder engine and the transmission is still a six-speed automatic to give you the shifting you’re looking for. Every model of the CX-5 is now offered with G-Vectoring Control Plus which is the torque vectoring system offered and this SUV now has upgrades to the steering and suspension to give you a sportier feeling when you take it on the road for a drive. These upgrades make the CX-5 an easy SUV to choose to drive when you want the right feeling on the road.
More in the Mazda CX-5
The 2019 version of the Mazda CX-5 will be offered with more features as well to give us more of what we’re looking for when it’s time to drive. This SUV is now offered with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as optional items. You can also enjoy the benefits of folding side mirrors, a customizable digital gauge cluster, and ventilated front seats on some of the higher trims of the CX-5 that you want to drive when it’s time for the ride on the road.
