Some things are just too good to change, which is why Mazda continued with the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine for 2020. In the base model, the same engine returns and grinds out a respectable 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. For drivers who want a bigger boost under the hood, the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims should suffice. They have a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which gets a whopping 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque (the torque has been upgraded from 310 lb-ft in the 2019 model). Both engine options come with a seamless 6-speed automatic transmission as well.

One interesting option for the 2020 CX-5 is the i-ACTIV AWD® drivetrain. Unlike other all-wheel drive systems, this one can sense the road conditions and will automatically switch back and forth between all-wheel drive and two-wheel drive as needed, allowing for greater fuel efficiency than the conventional all-wheel drive systems. Another excellent performance feature is SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. This system offers drivers a smoother, less fatiguing ride. The system works by shifting weight ever so slightly around curves and bumps to reduce the impact they have on you.
