After our trip to Penang and Kulim for the unveiling of the CX-8, Mazda Malaysia gave Eu Jin a brand-new CX-5 2.5L Turbo for the long drive back home.

However, for the entire trip it seems like every time Eu Jin gets on the throttle pedal, his vocabulary is taken over by Jeremy Clarkson and is reduced to about two words: so powerful.

The 2.5-litre SkyActiv-G turbocharged engine in the Mazda CX-5 2.5G Turbo is capable of pushing out 228 hp and 420 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The 2.5G Turbo is also the only variant in the line-up to come with all-wheel drive. If you’re looking for a powerful SUV that can take you through loose surfaces once in a while, the Mazda CX-5 2.5G Turbo 4WD HIGH might be the one for you at RM181,770.40.
