I can only assume it’s partly gearing.

Choked to death by emissions bullshit.

I read somewhere that Mazda was also in trouble for something emissions related recently. However, it was something along the lines of accuracy rather than straight up deception like with VW. Whatever Mazda did made them look bad in some ways.

Could have been a Hyundai type of issue where they overstated MPG.

If those are the real numbers, I don't know why anyone would ever opt for the diesel - that's why folks opt for diesel (either subsidized fuel (many parts of Europe) or a 20% mileage boost over gas equivalent)

I’m shocked the numbers are that bad. Especially if they are bringing a turbo to the gas engine too. I could see where the diesel provides better performance at no mpg penalty and that being the selling point. But not with a 2.5t also available.

The European Nissan Qashqai (roughly the size of a CX-5), with a 1.6l diesel (130 HP, 236 lb ft torque), gets 50 MPG.

If I had the money, I’d trade my current one in for either. This thing needs more than 190lb-ft of torque.

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 is getting Mazda's 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine if this supposed internal document from Reddit is correct. The user claims a salesperson showed him the document in question. In addition to the availability of the turbo engine, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto appear to be added onto every trim level. Do take note that the document says it's from Mazda Canada at the bottom, so that's why the trim levels don't have the same names as they do in the U.S.

Another interesting mention in there is G-Vectoring Control Plus. We've had Mazda's G-Vectoring Control technology for a little while, but never has a car come out with the Plus moniker on there. Our best bet is Mazda has revised its original G-Vectoring system for 2019; we'll have to wait for official information to see what exactly changed though.

At the top of the page Mazda lists "substantial visual changes to the interior" as one of the highlights. The biggest change we can find related to that is a seven-inch LCD display added to the gauge cluster on what would equate to the Grand Touring trim in the U.S. At least Canada — and maybe we too — seems to be getting a fourth trim level called "Signature." This will probably consist of more expensive materials used throughout and maybe a few bonus tech features over the Grand Touring.

The page shared looks plenty legitimate, but it's still best to maintain some healthy skepticism. It's also from Canada, so there could be some slight variations between how those cars are equipped versus those coming stateside. We're excited to see the 2.5-liter turbo in the smaller CX-5, though. It should give that car the extra punch it needs to fend off faster rivals in the ever-expanding crossover segment.

that engine is great in my CX-9, I bet it would be a hoot in a smaller/lighter vehicle.

Son of a bench ... Well, at least I know what I’ll replace this car with in a couple years. Just bad timing as I had to buy something.

Having driven the CX9 & M6, this engine in the CX5 should be exactly what it needs. The lack of power was about the only complaint I had in the 2-3 CX5 I've test driven over the years.

https://www.motorauthority.com/news/...-plus-handling

Mazda has introduced a round of updates for its CX-5 small crossover SUV including the addition of a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-4.

The updates were announced Thursday for the Japanese market and should be announced for more markets shortly.

Mazda's 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 is a punchy unit already found in the Mazda 6 and CX-9, where it delivers a peak 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers should provide plenty of poke in the smaller CX-5, especially lower in the rev range.

The other big piece of news is the introduction of the G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) handling feature. This is an enhancement of the G-Vectoring Control system that debuted in 2016 which is designed to improve traction during cornering by controlling the vertical load on each axle by varying engine torque. GVC Plus goes a step further by adding braking function into the mix.

As the driver steers out of a corner by returning the steering wheel to the center position, GVC Plus applies a light braking force to the outer wheels, providing a stabilizing moment that helps restore the vehicle to straight line running. This is particularly helpful during sudden maneuvers like swerving to avoid an object. Mazda said the system also provides a reassuring feeling of control when changing lanes on the highway and when driving on snow or other slippery road surfaces.

The design of the updated CX-5 remains unchanged, which is a good thing considering the SUV is one of the best lookers on the market. There are new colors for some of the wheels and inside there are new designs for some of the switches, along with new materials and extra speakers in the standard audio system.

Finally, Mazda has also added a CX-5 Exclusive Mode special edition that comes standard with high-quality materials such as Nappa leather and real woodgrain decorative panels. The special edition also gets some extra tech including a surround-view camera monitoring system and a 7.0-inch display in the instrument cluster.

Mazda is yet to announce availability of the updated CX-5 in the United States. We're also waiting for information on availability of the CX-5's 2.2-liter turbocharged inline-4 diesel currently offered overseas.

Signature is the name of Mazda's awesome trim level, which offers the kind of leather you expect from an Audi or BMW. So far, it's been reserved for the flagship CX-9 SUV and the Mazda6 sedan. However, it was only a matter of time before the most popular Mazda of them all got it too.

One of the best things you get with the new CX-5 Signature is the Caturra Brown Nappa leather interior, covering the seats and so much more. You also receive rear wood veneers, not that fake stuff the Germans give you, and satin chrome.

Equipment is generous and includes LED lights, a 360-degree camera, the latest infotainment which finally has phone connectivity, black headliner and a three-year subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.

When it goes on sale, the Signature trim will be the only one with a 2.5-liter turbo engine under the hood. It's the same one featured in the above-mentioned Mazda models, and it features 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Of course, that only when you're running it on premium gas. You can also get the turbo in the CX-8, which is a +2 version of this SUV that's not available in America.

The automaker also opted to announce that 2019 CX-5s will come equipped with a new G-Vectoring Control Plus which “makes steering response more precise and consistent by using small changes in engine output to shift weight to the front tires whenever the driver turns the wheel.”

Unfortunately, we don't know the price of the CX-5 Signature, but it should fall somewhere between the most expensive trim for the Mazda6 ($34,750) and CX-9 ($44,315).

Think they'll ever bring back the Mazdaspeed versions of the Mazda 3 and/or Mazda 6?

Doubtful. If it happens, I'd think the 3 would be the only one.
AWD on the 6, maybe, but I doubt we'll see a full MS6 anytime soon. Definitely not this generation.

It really surprises me that they aren't doing a Mazdaspeed version of anything. A Mazdaspeed CX5 would make an absolute killing out there and other hot hatches are definitely selling well. For a company that prides and markets itself on performance and driving, it's bizarre that they don't have a performance model lol.

IIRC, part of it came down to finances.
Since the split from Ford, they don't have the $$$ like they used to.

But, with as well as the CX-5 & M3 sell, you'd think some development $$ could work into some new MS products.

The Miata got a power & redline bump for 2019. 2.5T into the CX-5. The 3 is getting the Sky-X engine. Maybe some MS love is in the future.

I feel less grumpy knowing only the signature model gets the 2.5T as I was never going to spend $38-40K on one.

Got my CX-9 Grand Touring for $40,295 (dealer cost) and looking at Mazda's website the Grand Touring CX-5 base is $34,870 with the 2.5L bigger engine.

Figure add a couple K for the Signature trim, the 2.5T Signature may roll in around $38k?

If only we had a way to find out other than speculation...

According to Mazda's website, the Grand Touring Reserve model also gets the 2.5T motor and comes in at $34870 + options + usual fees. The Signature comes in at $36890 + options + usual fees.

My guess is that, after negotiation, you could get either of these for about those prices out the door...or better.
