Bermaz Motor has just previewed the Mazda CX-5 2.5L Turbo AWD at their roadshow in Sunway Pyramid. The new CX-5 variant will be officially available at showrooms in the coming weeks and interested parties can catch the car in the metal at the Concourse of Sunway Pyramid this weekend.

Details of the CX-5 2.5L Turbo AWD, including pricing and specifications, are scarce at the moment but the sales personnel have hinted at an estimated price tag of RM 180k. The new SUV variant will be assembled locally (CKD) at Mazda’s Kulim Inokom plant.

Only one variant of the CX-5 will come with the 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and it is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission and i-Activ all-wheel-drive system.

Just like on the CX-9, the engine makes 230 PS and 420 Nm of torque, the latter peaks from 2,000 rpm. Also new is the G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) which adds braking intervention to give the car improved stability and comfort.

Notable features on our local-spec CX-5 2.5L Turbo include LED technology for the headlamps, fog lamps, daytime running lights and taillamps and 19-inch alloys wrapped in 225/55 R19 rubbers.

Inside, the cabin gets updated with a windscreen-projected heads-up display, Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity and a new instrument cluster with a 7.0-inch digital multi-info display.

Other variants of the CX-5 should also receive these updates as well as the redesigned climate control panel for better tactility.
