The big news is the addition of a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 as the range-topping powertrain. The punchy unit is already found in the Mazda 6 and CX-9 and delivers a peak 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, on 93-octane fuel (227 hp with 87-octane fuel). Those numbers should provide plenty of poke in the smaller CX-5, especially lower in the rev range. Still available for 2019 is the previous year's naturally aspirated...
