Mazda renewed the CX-5 for 2020 with the most significant new feature being an update of the 2.0 Skyactiv-G 165 hp engine. This evolution of the 2.0-liter petrol block, which improves emissions and consumption compared to the previous version, was the starting point for a renewal of the model presented on Tuesday in Lisbon.
The great innovation of this 2.0 Skyactiv-G engine of 165 hp is the deactivation of the cylinders improving the efficiency of the vehicle. This evolution still exists only in the version with the manual gearbox. The deactivation of 2 cylinders happens in ‘coasting’, that is, running with little load on the accelerator at constant speed. Without any acceleration, the 4 cylinders are cut.
The cylinders are cut according to the acceleration load. The three modes – using the 4 cylinders, deactivating 2 or cutting the 4 – are shown on the screen – increased to 8 ” – in the ‘Fuel Economy Motor’ menu. Compared to the previous version, the new 165 hp CX-5 2.0 petrol (with manual transmission, repeat) goes from combined emissions (WLTP) from 168 g / km to 160 g / km; while in consumption (WLTP) combined, the evolution is from 7.4 l / 100 km to 7.1 l / 100 km.
With Skyactiv 6-speed manual (6MT) and 6-speed automatic (6AT) transmissions, the Mazda CX-5 offers a range of engines with two petrol and two diesel versions:
- 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G with 165 hp – front-wheel drive (6MT and 6AT)
- 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G with 194 hp – all-wheel drive (6AT only)
- 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D with 150 hp – front-wheel drive (6MT and 6AT)
- 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D with 184 hp – all-wheel drive (6AT only)
The exterior design on the revamped CX-5 remains unchanged, but in addition to new letters and emblems, the new 10-color palette features the new ‘polymetal gray metallic’ color with aluminum pigment to give more light to the SUV’s shapes. Inside, the standard LED lighting stands out, as well as the comfort resulting from Mazda’s investment in reducing noise, vibrations and harshness and the introduction of a steering damper. In versions with automatic transmission, the steering wheel levers are also standard.
Driving assistants are reinforced with the ‘off-road track assist’ in all-wheel-drive (AWD) versions, avoiding wheel spin and working together with the hill launch assist, which prevents slopes. The updating of safety systems for automatic braking in the city is already done with nighttime pedestrian detection – vehicle detection is done at speeds between 4 and 80 km / h and for pedestrians between 10 and 80 km / h.
The new Mazda SUV – with a luggage compartment with a capacity of 506 to 1,620 liters – will be presented in 2020 with three levels of equipment: the Evolve features 17 “alloy wheels, automatic air conditioning or the platform Apple CarPlay; in Excellence, the 19 ‘wheels or the Bose sound system; in the Special Edition, the ‘bright’ wheels or the black roof.
With about 30% of sales of the Japanese brand in the world (2.87 million units in 130 countries), the Mazda CX-5 is already on sale in Portugal.
