In all the years of Mazda’s history, there hasn’t been a time when one of its models wasn’t hot property. The Japanese carmaker has always been in the news for its path-breaking technology or superior design. Over the years, it has added versatility to its portfolio by introducing crossover compacts and hybrid models.
When Mazda introduced the CX-9, automakers and car fanatics the world over took notice. What fascinated them was the CX-9’s 2.5L turbo-four engine. Its 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft torque is enough to pull buyers in the thousands. The engine can also be used in other Mazda models such as the 3, 6, and CX-5 because they are all products of the same make.
It is highly unlikely that the engine will find itself under the hood of a Mazda 3 or 6 in the near future, primarily because the MazdaSpeed program has been put on hiatus. Therefore, what’s left is the CX-5. There isn’t much tweaking required from the engine of the CX-9, just a little fine-tuning of the output. It will enable the crossover to handle beautifully and ensure a far smoother ride.
Mazda’s average efficiency can also experience a lift which will allow the automaker to include it in its brand new technology offering – the SkyActiv 2. With this new generation of SkyActiv engines, Mazda hopes to take a step forward in delivering powerful machines. It is only a matter of time when such a car will actually see the light of day.
