Thailand has just gotten ahold of the Mazda CX-5 Turbo, which was officially launched here last month. 

The range topping CX-5 is priced at 1.85m Baht, translating to just over RM 250k. Lucky for us Malaysians as ours are priced at just RM 181k.

To reiterate, 2.5-litre turbocharged engine came straight from its larger sibling - the CX-9. It makes 230 PS and torque output peaks at 420 Nm. Transmission duty is handled by a 6-speed automatic that drives all four wheels. 

It might be pricey but the Thai spec CX-5 Turbo gets black headlining, radar cruise control, sunroof, brown Nappa leather seats, and a 10-speaker Bose sound system.

Unlike a few Toyota models that are imported from Thailand, it is the reverse for Mazda as the CX-5 is assembled at the Kulim plant here in Malaysia and gets exported to Thailand.

The quest for automotive knowledge began as soon as the earliest memories. Various sources information, even questionable ones, have been explored including video games, television, magazines, or even internet forums. Still stuck in that rabbit hole.
