Mazda CX-5 Due Out Next Year

Mazda CX-5 Due Out Next Year

Mazda‘s new CX-5 crossover will arrive at dealers next year, expanding the brand’s crossover range to three models.

With a spate of auto shows between now and then, the brand’s smallest ‘ute could debut at any venue from Frankfurt in September all the way to the New York Auto Show the following March.

The car is expected to change little in terms of design from the Minagi concept (above) which was first shown at Geneva this year. It will get the brand’s new 2.0-liter SkyActiv gasoline engine that is expected to be rated at around 150-hp, while Mazda has said the same engine in the Mazda3 will get 40-mpg highway.

In addition, Mazda could offer a new 2.2-liter diesel in the car, as it has made known plans to sell diesel-powered vehicles in North America.

    I bet it will be under powered with the 2.0L. I would have thought Mazda would have a SkyActiv version of the 2.5L ready for the CX-5 intro. Maybe they are holding off until a refesh of the Mazda 6.
