After its recent preview, Mazda Malaysia has added the CX–5 Turbo to the CX-5 line-up. The range now include the base 2.0l, GL, 2.0l GLS, 2.5l GLS and 2.2l GLS SkyActiv-D . The CX-5 Turbo is the top of the range. Official prices start from RM 137K to 181K.
As bookings are already made available at the recent roadtour in Sunway where the CX-5 Turbo was the highlight. The CX-5 SKyActiv-G 2.5L Turbocharged AWD or CX-5 Turbo in short has minor exterior updates.
The interior has plenty of new features including a fresh instrument cluster, an electric adjustable seat for the front passenger, a card holder on sunvisor, a Rear seat belt indicator, Heads-up display, a 360-degree camera, and the multimedia connectivity for Android Auto and CarPlay, which works with the MZD Connect.
The updated, 2019 Mazda CX-5 Turbo builds on the many and diverse strengths of the second generation model. But the main highlight of the CX-5 is a 2.5l turbocharged engine, boosted by all-wheel drive, for a very able output of 228 hp at 5,000 rpm and max torque of 420 Nm at 2,000 rpm. These figures put the 2.5 Turbo at the top of the range in terms of power output, however the CX-5 2.2l D still has a higher torque of 450Nm.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Turbo offers better handling stability and ride comfort. It achieves an even higher level of balance between linear response to driver inputs and ride comfort, through suspension refinements i.e. the front’s MacPherson struts and the rear’s multilink. The turbo driven CX-5 takes up 17-inch wheels and 185/80R17 tyres.
