The engine line-up for the European specification CX-5 will include Mazda's SkyActiv-G 2.0 gasoline engine and SkyActiv-D 2.2 diesel engine, which will be available in Standard Power and High Power versions. Each engine has a compression ratio of 14:1 for ideal efficiency. Mazda's engineers focused on achieving exceptional environmental performance for a compact SUV and targeted CO2 emissions of less than 120g/km for the Skyactiv-D 2.2 engined model (with front-wheel-drive, manual transmission and i-stop fuel-saving technology).
The CX-5 is also the first production model to showcase Mazda's new design theme, 'Kodo - Soul of Motion', which was previewed with the Shinari and Minagi concept cars. Unique themes of the Kodo design theme include a prominent new frontal treatment with a bolder Mazda family face and more dynamic styling that conveys a strong sense of vitality and agility.
