US-bound 2019 Mazda CX-5 is here

Mazda’s nip and tuck of the CX-5 makes the SUV even more desirable

Mazda has announced the introduction of the updated 2019 Mazda CX-5 at the Seattle International Auto Show.

The US-spec 2019 Mazda CX-5 comes with a revamped interior and a refreshed engine lineup.

Cabin-wise, customers can now get the Caturra Brown Nappa leather seats and a new genuine wood trim for the dashboard. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and Mazda didn’t forget about applying the finishing touches via ambient interior LEDs and a frameless rearview mirror.

As for what’s under the hood, Mazda tells us a new engine is available for the 2019 CX-5. The powerplant is a 2.5-liter turbocharged unit going by the name of SKYACTIV-G 2.5T that’s been recently adopted by the 2018 Mazda 6.

It delivers 250 hp on 93-octane fuel (227 on 87-octane gasoline) and 310 lb-ft of torque available from 2,000 rpm. Paired to the powerplant is a six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic gearbox with a torque converter.

Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control Plus setup is available on all 2019 CX-5 trim levels in the States, says Mazda, together with a retuned suspension setup and tweaked steering geometry.

The tech chapter includes a 360-degree View Monitor that eases going in and out of a parking slot as well as a 7-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system that is now compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Optionally, customers can request the likes of a 7-inch TFT instrument cluster, ventilated front seats, and power-folding mirrors.
