2014 Mazda CX-5 2.5-liter First Drive Review
2014 Mazda CX-5 2.5-liter: The same stylish wrapper but with a new heart
When Mazda launched the CX-5 in 2012, the world was given its first production-grade taste of the KODO design language. Brisk production, great sales figures, and industry accolades soon followed. The CX-5 is an appealing machine that appeals to many a customer in the U.S. market thanks to its fuel efficiency, quality interior, stylish exterior, and attractive price points.
For 2014, Mazda is providing the CX-5 with a brand new source of motivation that should grab even more interested parties and turn them into happy shoppers. The 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G four-cylinder gasoline engine is now offered alongside the already-available 2.0-liter mill. This means buyers can opt for more horsepower and torque without facing a heavy fuel economy hit.
