Next generation Mazda CX-5 (engines)

Mazda has already mentioned, a few months ago, they will have no new models for a couple of years.
So this info is probably regarding the next-generation CX-5. Also rumored to be called "CX-50" by then.
It looks like the all-new RWD Mazda 6 sedan might be the first new model to come out. Followed shortly after by the new "CX-50". Which means, they could very well be sharing platform. And that would mean a RWD CX-50...

The engine line-up above shows versions of the current base 2.5 Liter, but with a mild-hybrid system and a nice power boost to 190HP.
The 2.5 Liter Turbo looks like it could get a tiny power boost to 230HP.

There seem to be 2 diesel options, for overseas markets.
the big news is the all-new 3.0 Liter milf hybrid. Which must be the all-new inline 6 cylinder engine that has been rumored for a while (The all-new Mazda 6 will get is as well)
With 285HP, this Mazda CX-5 or CX-50 will be quite competitive.
Even against some much more expensive competition.

2 years is just a very long time in this business. And the competition is not waiting around...

My current drive is a 2018 CX-5 with the 2.5 L motor greatly needs a power bump. It might be good idea to see how the turbo unit drives when my car is due in the next year.

Burlapp, will you get your hands on the new CX-30?

I can't wait to see the new rwd platform, and the new 3.0 hybrid powertrain. Hopefully the hybrid tech will be borrowed from the partnership with Toyota. 285hp, combined with the instant torque of the hybrid addition will inject a degree of zoom zoom back into Mazda that they haven't had in years. With the exception of the Miata of course.

I have not been able to get Mazda cars for a while. But yes, I would love to drive the CX-30.
As it is now, the CX-5 is so much more refined than the CX-3. And I do hear good things about the CX-3-...
