The SUV shares the same 2.5-litre Skyactiv-G unit with the new Mazda6 2.5. The engine boasts 184 hp at 5,700 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, which is well over the 2.0’s 153 hp and 200 Nm of torque.
Like the CKD CX-5, the CX-5 2.5 comes equipped with High Spec equipment, which comprises of an i-Stop start/stop system, sunroof as well as Bose sound system with nine speakers. Wheels are 225/65 R17.
According to Dato’ Seri Ben Yeoh, Managing Director of Bermaz Motor, the decision to bring in the CBU version is basically due to the present production constraints and the long delivery period. The CX-5 2.5 will be locally produced once the production capacity is increased following the commissioning of a new assembly line.
The new CX-5 2.5 starts at RM166,594 for the 2WD variant and RM176,797 for the 4WD version. Both prices are OTR with insurance. Four colour choices are available – Sky Blue Mica, Meteor Grey, Arctic White and Aluminium Metallic.
