2018 Mazda CX-5 Concept And Rumour
After the incredible success of the full range of Mazda, SKYACTIV technology and Kodo, everyone looks forward to the new 2018 Mazda CX-5 to arrive. Everything will change to some extent. We expect improvements in design, improve interior and capabilities of the propulsion system revised and improved fuel economy. If all goes as planned, we expect the new 2018 Mazda CX-5 in the streets at the end of 2017. Things do not often not turn out as we like, so the beginning of the year 2018 would be a more accurate estimate. Given the success of the previous model, the new model will have a difficult task to follow, because the competition never sleeps. We cannot wait to see how it will happen.
Although there is nothing official at this point, 2018 Mazda CX-5 prototype looked incredibly close to the Chinese market CX-4. At the front, this appears to be identical to what is not a bad average. This means that a new grill can be used in the car and a new pair of headlights resulting in a better integration in the design of the 3D grid. In addition, the back seems to have more or less the same as the current model, but the car’s curves seem to have slightly changed to something a little more updated. We also hope that it may offer new color options, new designs for wheels and a sportier model. The latter could make use of a sports body kit, larger wheels, high performance tires and even a sports escape.
The next 2018 Mazda CX-5 will certainly continue the cabin which is loosely based on the CX-5 during the new CX-4. Expect a new navigation and infotainment, better build quality, more support of seats and a higher level of equipment in terms of safety features. Warning, rear collision alert cross traffic, parking sensors front and rear and an adaptive cruise control everyone should be added as an option in the car.
2018 Mazda CX-5 not comes with modifications engines, revisions or updates. Engine choices will be transferred to the new generation. From the base engine will be a 4-cylinder in-line 2.0 liter capable of delivering 155 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, with a maximum output torque of 150 foot pounds at 4,000 rpm. Transmission that goes with this engine is a 6-speed manual with the drive configuration of the front wheel. The estimated fuel economy of this configuration is 26 mpg city, 35 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined. This result is quite impressive, considering the class of the car. Cruising range on the road has a power of 518 miles while in the city is 385 miles. The second most powerful variant, include a line 4-cylinder 2.5-liter gasoline direct injection, capable of delivering 184 horsepower at 5700 rpm and a maximum torque output of 185 lb-ft at 3250 rpm. The transmission associated with this unit is an automatic 6-speed transmission. The estimated EPA fuel economy is slightly worse compared to the smaller engine, but not by much. The notes are: 32 mpg on the highway, 25 mpg city and 27 mpg combined. Again, the impressive results. Two diesel variants of the same engine will also be offered. It is the 2.2-liter diesel, which is capable of producing 148 horsepower, either manual or 6-speed automatic.
The main competitors in 2018 Mazda CX-5 will have on the Jeep Cherokee, Nissan Rogue and Chevy Equinox. However, the cross from Ford, GMC and Hyundai should not be forgotten. While the release date are not yet clear, the new generation of the CX-5 crossover that his predecessor should cost around $ 23,000.
