New generation Mazda CX-5 may change name

New generation Mazda CX-5 may change name

July 30, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

In July last year, Mazda received patents for several new names at once, and this happened after the company introduced the CX-30 crossover. It has now become known that one of those patent applications, for the CX-50, could mean a successor to the CX-5, which could appear in a couple of years.

Citing its sources, the Mazda CX-50 crossover will switch to the new Mazda rear-wheel drive platform, which will also form the basis of the new upgraded Mazda6 sedan. This means the crossover could receive a host of new hybrid powertrains. The best configurations will receive 3- and 3.3-liter inline six-cylinder engines. 2.5- and 2.2-liter engines will also be available.

Spyder7 notes that the design of the crossover will change, and Mazda will succumb to modern trends, giving the crossover a coupe-like look. However, the CX-50 will get the Mazda Kodo design language at the front with a wide grille and slim headlights, although some styling changes are expected for the younger CX-30 crossover.

It is worth emphasizing that all information is unofficial. The company has not yet commented on its plans for the future. There are no other details about the new generation of Mazda crossover yet. We hope that the presentation of the novelty will take place next year.
