2019 CX-5: does it turbo?

Quote:
2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 227 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, just like the Japanese model. This engine will arrive on the top two trims, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature
https://www.motortrend.com/news/2019...new-trims-u-s/

would you pay 50k for one?

I wouldn't say it'll be 50k as it doesn't directly correlate with the currency exchange.

The Current CX-5 is 38k cad, which means the Signature should be 45k or so.
considering the cx-9 signature is 53k vs the GT at 50k + the engine option

And the cx-5 has a better, more luxurious interior.

Top 30 Best-Selling Vehicles In Canada ? September 2018 | GCBC

The CX-5 is a big ass seller in Canada relative to the size of Mazda though not quite up there with the CR-V or Rav4.

Re: Pricing - $45-46K for a loaded seems pretty steep but a CR-V Touring is $40.6K and the CX-5 Signature is more luxurious, has more features and is going to be a good bit faster. Seems like a reasonable price bump though it's getting into RDX territory for pricing.

dang didnt' realize CR-V tops out at 40k now
I think it's priced right and they're trying to move up-class as a marque...but still seems like a fair bit for a compact crossover that isn't badged Acura or Lexus

The badge is only one thing, I would say the interior of the Mazda is closer to Acura / Infiniti than other non-premium brands

agreed, but it's just a mindset
you review cars so you know what you're talking about
I just feel the line between regular brands and luxury divisions are really starting to blur (FCA vehicles aside)
that said, Mazda seems to be built pretty cut-throat (you get more for your dollar)…so they still have to cut corners somehow...the little things still feel flimsy like the control dial and visors; and their paint seems to be quite thin (PPF almost mandatory)
otherwise I think they have the best styling and best driving characteristics, almost every model is still assembled in Japan (Mexico-built Mazda3 ), and just overall good value

I totally agree, Mazda I would say is the best of the bunch but Honda has been really good as well. Currently driving the Honda Insight, very surprised how good this interior is.

I mean the interiors of the Insight of signature models of the Mazdas are better than 3-series BMW.

We've looked at and test driven nearly every competitor in that class, including the CX-5. CR-V. Rav4. Rogue. Forester. And probably one or two more, I honestly can't remember. The top trim models all cost near $40k now.

2019 CX5 spec sheet

227hp on reg gas, 250 hp on premium
310tq @ 2k rpm

Impressive numbers. Looks like the same numbers as the 6 and the CX9?

Starting to think I should've just waited it out for the 2019 models before pulling the trigger on our '18 Forester XT.

Prefer the styling of the first gen CX5 over the current model with the squished head and tail lights.

^This.

Mazda lacks a premium brand, so they are making the higher trim models premium instead to make up for it.

I test drove a Mazda 6 2.5T GT for a friend recently. The styling is elegant, the interior is nice and comfy, transmission is pretty responsive, and the engine doesn't turbo lag much. Very good package IMO.

TBF, the 6AT is pretty responsive. Granted, I'd prefer a manual(so something like the Honda Accord 2.0T Sport), but it's also nowhere nearly as bad as the 15 Ecoboost Mustang 6AT I test drove the same day. That thing is so laggy with the turbo, you can finish watching the Godfather trilogy by the time the boost finally decides to kick in. I know I will still be calling it "wild donkey." Sure, it's faster than my torqueless rotary, but the driving experience just doesn't particularly please me, just like riding a donkey.

The Ecoboost Mustang are using a 10AT now, though, so I am not sure how well that works.

If that includes freight and PDI that’s really reasonable. If not how much more with freight and PDI?

Edit: Mazda.ca has freight and PDI of $1,895 plus A/C and tire fees of $125 so that would make the GT $41,470 and the Signature $42,970. Considering a loaded CR-V Touring goes for $40,810 those look like pretty good/great pricing.
