Mazda’s compact CX-5 finished 2018 with three consecutive years of record sales, and with 2018 sales higher than the combined sales of all other Mazda models. The CX-5 was redesigned for 2017, adopting the styling of the larger CX-9, and for 2019 adds the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels, both powered by a turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine producing 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque with standard i-ACTIV all-wheel drive. The new SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine is rated at 168 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm, achieving an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined. The new CX-5 is the first Mazda to feature G-Vectoring Control, which enhances vehicle responsiveness and stability while reducing the sideways sliding of occupants during cornering.
