2018 Mazda CX 5 Turbo Diesel Redesign and Release Date
The current version of CX-5 is designed as the first Mazda with the new Kodo design language. It was released in 2012. It is important to keep its life and the only solution is to give mild refresh in the new 2018 Mazda CX 5. It will go with different exterior design such as redesigned platform and new interior look.
No official announcement at this point, but the prototype of 2018 Mazda CX 5 is incredible that is close to the CX-4 with identical look. It has new grille with new pair of headlights to give better integration to its 3D-grille design. The back has the same shape as the current model with the slight change around the curves for its update. It is expected to have more color options with the new designs to complete the wheels and to make it as the sportier model. It also has sportier exhaust, larger wheels, higher performance tires and others.
2018 Mazda CX 5 will not use the cabin of the new CX-4. It will take the current CX-5’s. It is possible to get new navigation and infotainment system with better build quality, better equipment of safety details as well as supportive seats. There are some more such as frontal collision warning, parking sensors front and back, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control and more.
2018 Mazda CX 5 Engine
There is a big possibility for 2018 Mazda CX 5 to use the same engine as the current model. It means that the base will use 2.0 liter naturally aspirated engine to provide 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. There is also larger 2.5 liter inline four to work for 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque power. These are designed with both FWD and AWD with the use of six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic. For the higher model, there will be 2.5 liter turbocharged inline four and direct injected engine borrowed from the CX-9 to create 230 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. It uses FWD as standard and it only available with six-sped auto.
Among other section, this one is the hardest part to tell. We do hope that the cost shouldn’t be too far from the current model that is only about $28,000 to get the basic version. 2018 Mazda CX 5 is possible to launch in the early of 2017. Its arrival will be a great rival for the Nissan Qashqai and Honda CR-V.
