The next Mazda CX-5 crossover may share its platform with the new Mazda6.

Mazda’s move into the premium market has not been without sacrifices. The Mazdaspeed brand, which is responsible for high-performance products, has practically outlived its usefulness, and the company’s move towards the elite is likely to bring price increases. The repositioning of the Japanese brand could pay dividends, however, as the company readies the next-generation Mazda CX-5, which will ride on a new rear-wheel drive platform and six-cylinder engines.

According to preliminary information, the next generation CX-5, which can go on a par with the Mercedes GLC and BMW X5, will share a new rear-wheel drive platform Mazda with a new generation Mazda6 sedan, and, as it became known earlier, the company is developing new in-line six-cylinder engines. … These units, possibly with 3.0 and 3.3 liters displacement, should find their place under the new CX-5 bonnet.

As reported by AutoTImesNews this summer, there was information that Mazda may abandon the CX-5 nameplate in favor of the CX-50. At the same time, some sources are inclined to believe that the CX-50 will become a coupe version of the CX-5 and may join it in the lineup on the principle of the recently introduced CX-30. It is known that new products will not be presented until March 2022.
