The 2018-2019 Mazda CX-5 crossover was introduced in Japan on October 11, 2018. The Mazda CX-5 SUV in a new car received a 230-horsepower gasoline turbo engine Skyactiv-G 2.5T, a modified G-Vectoring Control system, an upgraded and improved interior, as well as a luxury package bundle Exclusive Mode.
2019 Mazda CX-5 price range
In the Japanese market, sales of the modified 2019 Mazda CX-5 SUV was started in early November 2018 at a price of $ 2,36,000. For the initial version of the crossover with a 156-horsepower atmospheric engine Skyactiv-G 2.0, the cost of the updated crossover with the new 230- a powerful turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine ranges from $3.5k for a front-wheel-drive crossover with a 6-speed automatic in the L Package configuration to $36k for an elegant complete set of Exclusive Mode (6 automatic transmissions, full 4WD drive).
Of course, the most important upgrade of the 2019 Mazda CX-5 crossover is boldly considering the new 2.5-liter gasoline turbo engine Skyactiv-G 2.5T (230 hp 420 Nm), aggregating by default with 6 automatic transmissions and offered in the local market for a crossover with front and all-wheel drive. This engine is also installed on the Mazda CX-9 large crossover and the upgraded Mazda 6.
The Skyactiv-G 2.5T gasoline turbo engine is equipped with a Dynamic Pressure Turbo system (simulates the presence of a variable geometry turbine) and sports two paths at the entrance to the turbocharger.
One truck with movable damper closing at low engine speeds. At medium and high revolutions, the flap opens and both intake tracts are open (at low revolutions, the boost pressure and the impeller rotation speed are higher than at high revolutions). The new turbocharged engine, on average, is content with just 7.93 liters of fuel (front-wheel drive) and 8.2 liters with all-wheel drive transmission.
In addition to the new turbocharged 2.5-liter gasoline engine under the hood of the updated Mazda CX-5 crossover, atmospheric gasoline engines and a turbo diesel engine from the pre-reform model are installed. So, the choice of engines now consists of as many as 4 engines.

In the technical stuffing of the updated 2019 Mazda CX-5 crossover, an upgraded G-Vectoring Control system appeared, which was called G-Vectoring Control Plus. The system comes into operation a bit earlier than on pre-reform cars, allowing to drive more safely.
Among other innovations, we would like to note the presence of the Advanced Smart City Braking Support electronic braking system, which allows able to see pedestrians not only during the day but also at night, as well as the all-around viewing system available as an option for all versions of the crossover.
