Recently, a test mule of CX-5 crossover was caught testing in Gurgaon.

Being a five seater Sports Utility Vehicle, the CX-5 model is inspired by the crouching cheetah design. The SUV is blessed with Mazda’s Kodo design language. In the global market, CX-5 is available in both petrol and diesel versions.

The petrol version of the car is powered by a 2.0L engine which is capable of delivering a peak power of 155 bhp. On the other hand, the diesel version is loaded with a 2.2 L engine that generates a peak power of 147 bhp.

The major attraction of the CX-5 model is Mazda’s new SKYACTIV technology which not only combines the car with new efficient engine series and transmission, but also offers a rigid and lightweight platform. The new technology makes the SUV highly fuel efficient as well as reduces the carbon emission level.
