The new model will be based on Mazda’s new “small” platform, which also underpins the Mazda3 and CX-30.
It will use the CX-5 engines, a 2.5L naturally-aspirated four-cylinder, making 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque; or a turbocharged 2.5L, making 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque if you spring for premium fuel (it’s 227 hp and 310 lb-ft on regular-grade). Both will be using a six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive will be standard.
