Its first four-cylinder turbo E5T appeared in 1983, after which they began to equip the Mazda Familia and Ford Laser models of the first half of the 1980s.
And how not to recall the iconic sports car Mazda RX-7 , which was equipped with a rotary engine with one or even two turbochargers. In modern history there were “charged” cars of the MPS series , after which Hiroshima forgot about gasoline turbomotors (if it’s not about kay-cars).
The silence was violated by the Skyactiv-G 2.5T. First they were equipped with a crossover Mazda CX-9 , then it got a restyling Mazda 6. And soon this engine will find itself under the hood of the five-door CX-5 .
Last year, the US sold 127,563 crossover Mazda CX-5, but this is not the best result in the US segment of compact SUVs. For comparison, the first three places in 2017 were occupied by Toyota RAV4 (407 594 pieces), Nissan Rogue (403 465 pieces) and Honda CR-V (377 895 pieces).
The publication of The truth about cars was the certification document of the Council for the Protection of California Air Resources. It follows that for the USA Mazda X-5 was prepared for the 2019 model year with the Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine combined with a six-speed automatic transmission.
While there is no data, how much power and thrust will be produced by the “four” on the CX-5, but it is known that on the models of the Mazda 6 and CX-9, the return reaches 254 hp. and 420 N • m.
It is also unclear whether such a modification of the X-5 SUV will appear in Europe, although in the Old World customers have a choice of a pair of petrol and a couple of diesel units. But in the States are sold so far only versions with a 194-strong engine 2.5 Skyactiv-G.
