The crossover can move to a new architecture, and under its hood there will be a row “six”.
The bestcarweb edition reports that the Mazda CX-5 crossover can get a rear-wheel drive after a generational change. The new architecture with a longitudinal engine location, which is being developed for the new generation Mazda6 sedan, will also be used in the creation of the CX-5 crossover. Together with the platform, the CX-5 will also inherit the engine range, which consists of gasoline and diesel engines with a volume of 3.0 and 3.3 liters, respectively. Also, some data indicate that the new product will be called the CX-50, instead of the usual CX-5, although some insiders emphasize that both names will be used simultaneously.
The newly patented name CX-50 can be assigned to a coupe-like modification, or it is intended for an entirely new model that will fill a niche between the CX-5 and CX-9. The new generation of the CX-5 will not debut until 2022.
The current CX-5 in Ukraine can be purchased with engines of 2.0 or 2.5 liters, front or all-wheel drive. Prices start at $ 28,300.
