Mazda CX-5 2014 available in UAE with 2.5-litre engine
The 2.5-litre version of the Mazda CX-5 was launched elsewhere a few months ago, and we had assumed that it’d take ages to reach the GCC. However, word is Mazda’s UAE dealer has been quietly offering the bigger-engined version for at least a month now.
The 2014 Mazda CX-5 now comes with two engines, a 153 hp 2.0-litre 4-cylinder with front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, or a 182 hp 2.5-litre 4-cylinder with all-wheel-drive only. Both have a 6-speed automatic.
Each engine variant has two trim levels. All models get a dual-zone auto a/c, keyless entry, fabric upholstery, 40:20:40 plit-folding rear seat, ABS, ESP, front-side airbags, Bluetooth, 17-inch alloys and a 6-speaker CD/MP3 stereo. The top 2.5-litre version additionally comes with smart keyless start, HID headlights, leather upholstery, sunroof, 9-speaker Bose stereo, lane-change monitor, rear camera, 19-inch alloys and a few other knick-knacks for Dhs 115,000 in Dubai. Apparently there’s been a massive price-drop from the last time we checked on it.
