Mazda has announced a new engine option for its CX-5 soft roader, which should make this model more appealing for buyers of novated lease vehicles looking for a performance oriented car.
2.5-litre petrol engine confirmed
Mazda’s vice president of European research and development, Ichiro Hirose, revealed at the 2012 Paris motor show that the CX-5 will benefit from a 2.5-litre petrol engine to deliver improved power and performance, responding to feedback from the motoring community. This fuel efficient SkyActiv engine could also help to reduce emissions and improve engine efficiency. Mazda Australia is expected to follow suit and include the engine option in its own upcoming CX-5.
Other engine options
The CX-5 is already available with a 2.0-litre petrol engine, delivering 114 kW of power and 200 Nm of torque, and 2.2-litre diesel engine, with 129 kW and 420 Nm. The new 2.5-litre petrol engine promises up to 138 kW and 250 Nm and will also be present in other vehicles from the manufacturer, including the new Mazda6. The CX-5 has already proven a popular model in Australia, outselling other vehicles in its class including the Nissan X-Trail, Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4.
