2020 Mazda CX-5 follows the market demands but also improves itself for faithful buyers. When the first model was made, in 2012, buyers were attracted by simplicity but in combination with the strong engine and economical power. This time, this compact crossover went further. It has many novelties in design, but most importantly, in engine strength and economy.
- The model gets a new economical but strong engine
- The manufacturer changes colors that comes with the model
- The price of the model is still below average
- There is no clear information about the cabin equipment and improvements
We used to see this crossover similar to Honda CR-V or Hyundai Tucson and according to photos, the manufacturer will not change it much in 2020 Mazda CX-5 either. Knowing that this type of the crossovers attract attention and has a large group of buyers, they will not change it much. However, there should be changes in design, as the manufacturer announced that they will follow famous KODO design like in other models in this factory, so we expect changes in that field. Besides that, they will also change colors offered with the model and maybe details on the bumpers and lights.
There should not be many changes inside of 2020 Mazda CX-5 if we take the manufacturer seriously. According to the photos, there are a few interesting details, but the overall look should be the same. The dashboard remained the same shape, size and design, fulfilled with the wide lines in chrome. On the other hand, the size of the cabin is also the same, but has new materials in there and surely changed color pallet. The manufacturer also has promised new equipment and improvements.
The most excitement in the new 2020 Mazda CX-5 will surely be the engines. The manufacturer will surely go with the well-known old versions like 2.0-liter petrol unit with 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. There will be found another option, 2.5-liter that produces 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque, too. For diesel engines fans there is a perfect 2.2-liter with 173 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. All of these engines are controlled by six-speed automatic transmission as before. However, these engines are not what we meant when said “most exciting”. The real surprise will be a new Sky Active engine model, that manufacturer already used in Mazda 3. This engine should be a 2.0-liter petrol model, but with the strength of 185 horsepower (instead of currently 155) and much less fuel consumption. Stronger, and more economical – a perfect combination!
2020 Mazda CX-5 Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Mazda CX-5 should be on the market in late 2019. The price, according to the manufacturer, should not be much different from the last model. That means $25,000 for the base model. We are sure that this version worth to be mentioned in comparison with the other models in the class as the competition.
