Under the hood, the CX-5 Signature will boast the company’s turbocharged SKYACTIV-2.5T four, which develops 227 horsepower with regular fuel and 250 hp with super unleaded. A revised version of Mazda’s driving dynamics software, called G-Vectoring Control Plus, is also on board.
No word yet on the CX-5’s other trim levels, which should continue to use the naturally aspirated SKYACTIV-G engines. The 2.0-litre four matched to a six-speed manual transmission produces 156 hp, while the 2.5-litre four in all other trims except the Signature generates 187 horsepower. In addition, we’re still waiting for the diesel engine Mazda promised when the CX-5 was redesigned for the 2017 model year.
Pricing for the 2019 Mazda CX-5 will be announced at a later date.
