Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv G 192:
Powerhouse in Kuschel mode
Mazda’s flagship SUV CX5 drives with a new top engine, more comfort and more quality in the passenger compartment in front. We have tested the Japanese.

Sports gliding sounds paradoxical, manages the newly face-lifted Mazda CX-5 with a new top engine and revised chassis but loose. Tempo 170 feels with the 192-hp four-cylinder as relaxed 120. Short sprints to 100 km creates the top model still in brisk 8.1 seconds. Just for comparison: A 218-hp BMW X5 takes 8.2 seconds.
