The new 2014 Mazda CX-5 will be powered by 2.0 liter engine that produces power of 155 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. In addition, Mazda will offer optional six-speed automatic gearbox – which can be ordered with AWD model. For all lovers of sports cars, Mazda has to offer Touring and Grand Touring models which will be powered by 2.5 L engine that produces 184 hp. The new 2014 CX-5 is equipped SkyActiv technology, which will significantly reduce fuel consumption. Mazda’s use of lighter materials experts have reduced vehicle weight and improved aerodynamics thus get a more favorable structure with improved vehicle safety, which is certainly very good.

We don’t satisfied with that base versions of the 2014 Mazda CX-5 with the smaller engine still sacrifice power in return for increased fuel economy. And while the 2014 CX-5 has one of the best manual transmissions we’ve tested in an SUV, it’s only available on the base, front-wheel-drive (FWD) version that is the most lacking in features.
