According to the wizard, the interior of the CX-5 signature is lined with high-quality materials, including a cocoa leather leather Nappa leather cover and Abachi lining. The Signature also features a seven-digit digital display for the driver, heated and ventilated front seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, heated steering wheel, Bose sound system with 10 speakers, head-up display and electric folding mirrors, among others.
Under the hood, the CX-5 Signature will feature a four-stroke turbocharged SKYACTIV-2.5T engine that develops 227 hp with conventional gasoline and 250 hp with super. There is also a revised version of Mazda Dynamics Control software, G-Vectoring Control Plus.
There are no details regarding other CX-5 variants to continue using SKYACTIV-G atmospheric engines. A four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox produces 156 horsepower, while a 2.5-liter engine in other versions, with the exception of a signature, generates 187 hp. Besides, we are still waiting for the diesel engine promised by Mazda when the CX-5 was revised to the year 2017.
