21st November, 2012

Mazda Australia has confirmed that the new SKYACTIV-G 2.5 litre petrol engine will be added to the CX-5 SUV range.

The 2.5 litre petrol engine will replace the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre petrol engine on All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Maxx, Maxx Sport and GT models.

Performance is improved with the new SKYACTIV-G 2.5 litre engine targeted to deliver 138 kW of power and 250 Nm of torque (final figures to be confirmed). This represents a 15 per cent increase in power over the superseded 2.5 litre engine that powered the front-drive CX-7 Classic, while torque is up by 22 per cent.

CX-5 models equipped with the new SKYACTIV-G 2.5 litre petrol engine will deliver fuel economy figures better than 8.0 litres per 100 km on the 'combined cycle'.

Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) models will continue to be specified with the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre petrol engine and AWD CX-5 models with the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 litre diesel engine are expected to continue making up the range.

Mazda CX-5 will be available with the new SKYACTIV-G 2.5L petrol engine in the first quarter of 2013.


E&OE.
