The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is supposed to come with three engine options. The base choice is the 2.0-liter I4 unit while the second gasoline unit that is offered is the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder powerplant. Another option that should be available for the US market is a 2.2-liter Skyactiv diesel good for 173 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque.
If you want to get most capable, performance vise version, you should opt for the 2017 Mazda CX-5 MPS model that is going to sport a 2.5-liter turbocharged unit under the hood. It is the same engine which can be found on the 2016 Mazda CX-9. According to the Daily Sun, this one delivers 250 hp and 310 pound-feet of torque.
The car with a 2.5-liter unit will feature a Dynamic Pressure Turbo that has the purpose to direct the air via two channels to the turbocharger. This will improve fuel efficiency, and the engine should offer more power.

The MPS variant is definitely better than the standard Mazda CX-5 and it could further improve sale results of an already great vehicle.
