Before the Mazda CX-5 was announced, there were already talks about Mazda thinking about releasing the Mazda CX-5 as a premium model to compete in the premium market. It is said that Mazda was looking to move some of their models into the premium market and the Mazda CX-5 was one of them.
However, with the price of the CX-5 was out, we know that Mazda is not ready to make the jump yet. Mazda has not revealed the price of the Mazda CX-5 here in the US but they have already announced the price for the Japan model.
The Mazda CX-5 will be sold for about $20,800. The price will most likely change when it comes over to the US but at least we know that this is not a premium model.
The Mazda CX-5 will be powered by a 2.- liter SkyActiv-G engine that will be mated to a six-speed auto transmission and will be delivering about 155PS and 196Nm of torque. There is also a 2.5-liter engine as well as a new 2.2-liter diesel engine.
