Mazda’s answer to mid-size SUVs like the Honda CR-V, Nissan X-Trail, Subaru XV, Kia Sportage, Mitsubishi ASX, Hyundai Tucson and Suzuki Grand Vitara, is the CX-5 that features the carmaker’s signature Kodo design inspired looks and various Skyactiv technologies.
Bermaz Motors, the distributor of Mazda models in Malaysia offers the Japanese SUV in four variants with prices starting at RM125,765 (OTR without insurance) for the entry level 2.0 2WD GL version. The range topping 2.5 4WD variant on the other hand carries a price tag of RM177,610.
Petrol engine choices include – a 153hp Skyactiv-G 2.0 and 185hp Skyactiv-G 2.5. Both the 2.0 and 2.5 petrol CX-5 variants are available in two- and all-wheel drive guise.
For those who prefer diesel, the CX-5 can be had with a 2.2-litre Skyactiv-D four-cylinder turbodiesel mill that churns out 175hp at 4,500rpm and 420Nm of torque. The Skyactiv-D CX-5 only comes in front wheel drive form. All engines are coupled to Mazda’s six-speed torque converter type automatic transmission.
