Mazda has introduced a turbocharged 2.5-liter petrol engine for its facelifted 2019 CX-5, allowing customers to choose from a total of 3 engine choices.

The retail pricing of the 2019 CX-5, which is imported from Malaysia, has been raised by Bt10,000, but it comes with some equipment upgrades along with 5-year/150,000km warranty, 5-year/100,000km free maintenance labor cost and Mazda Premium Insurance. Mazda is also offering a low 1.99-per cent interest rate for buyers too.


The top CX-5 now comes with a beefy SKYACTIV-G 2.5 turbo engine capable of producing 231hp at 5,000rpm and 420Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. The new powerplant is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and has SKYACTIV-DRIVE AWD.

Meanwhile, the 2.2-liter diesel engine has been improved and now has 190hp at 4,500rpm and 450Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. Both front-wheel-drive and AWD versions are available.

The 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G with 165hp at 6,000rpm and 210Nm of torque at 4,000rpm is still available as well, Mazda confirmed.

The 2019 CX-5 comes with added features such as GVC (G-Vectoring Control) Plus, and a “Less is More” interior design with real wood fittings and deep red Nappa leather. There is Apple CarPlay and i-Activsense all-round safety.
