With 230 PS at its disposal, the CX-5 2.5 Turbo is the most SUV in the segment. Being a Mazda, it also has unrivaled handling prowess but at the slight tradeoff of ride comfort. NVH levels in this latest generation CX-5 is comparable to rivals of the segment.
Being the range-topping variant, the CX-5 2.5 Turbo comes with all the bells and whistles as well as partial ADAS. While the build quality and cabin materials are exceptional, when compared to the new-generation Mazda 3, the CX-5's interior feels a little underwhelming.
Not the most spacious nor practical interior in the segment, but the seats are very supportive for long journeys.
The results are nothing impressive however remember that this is a 2.5-litre turbocharged SUV with 230 PS and all-wheel-drive.
The 2.5 Turbo is the most expensive CX-5 variant on sale, retailing at RM 181,660 (OTR without insurance). Road tax is not cheap either at RM 830.40 (peninsular Malaysia) for its 2.5-litre capacity engine. However, the plus side is that Bermaz Motors offers a 5-Years Free Maintenance package inclusive of parts and labour cost.
