I'm getting sick of this Copy & Paste design we're getting lately.

Live a little and change things up. Remove the badges and from a distance you can't tell if it's a CX-5 or CX-9. Even the OEM wheels IIRC the CX-3 are identical and ugly as ****!! It's the reason why the CX-3 turned me off when shopping to trade my Father's Nissan Rogue.

Anyways...

At least Honda made changes not just the between the Coupe, Sedan & Hatchback but in TRIMS too. I love that the Sport & Sport Touring (can't wait for it) Hatchbacks are different than the base/lower trims by ADDING/CHANGING with Color options, Aero Kit, Exhaust and Wheels.
I've just noticed you really love using capital letters.

I figured it's easier than dealing with the BOLD or UNDERLINE tool.

In this interview with Mazda engineer, the Diesel output will be ~170hp and 310lb/ft. They are also removing the base 2.0l and considering offering the 2.5L with a manual.

I am currently looking for new SUV (compact) and CX5 interior space (leg room) was an issue. I am not sure if they did any improvement in this area.
which CX-5 did you try? we own the 2016 and find the leg room amazing, we also tried the 2015 and it felt more cramped.

Agreed. This is another case of selling the same car in three different sizes: small, medium, and large.

That being said, it looks like a big improvement!

My wife loves her 2016.5 CX-5 GT but it's slow...she misses driving manual, if she finds out the 2017 GT is available with manual, she will be pretty upset lol

Canada, Eh!!
We looked at CX-5 but the hump in middle of floor in rear seats was not for us... really liked the way CRV is basically flat in second row floor.

CX-5 leg room ok but not as roomy for three sitting in second row... important to us and not interested in bigger suv.

Made Canadian debut at the Toronto Auto Show

https://www.auto123.com/en/news/2017-ma ... but/63365/

Here are pricing details:
GX $24,900
GS $29,100
GT $34,700
Meh...engines are the same as in Mazda 3. Too under-powered for a car that size these days. Any news on whether they're still bringing Turbo Diesels to Canada? I think they promised something along the lines of 173 horsepower at 4500 rpm and 310 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm. Wonder what it will be priced at

From yesterday's press release.

http://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/20 ... 48853.html

"Later on in 2017, a third engine will join the CX-5 lineup, bringing diesel power to the Mazda showroom for the first time in a passenger vehicle. The SKYACTIV-D 2.2L turbo-diesel engine will bring a new driving dynamic to the CX-5 range with smooth, effortless acceleration as expected from a diesel engine, along with fuel economy rivaling hybrid vehicles."

Emissions laws are stricter here in Canada and the U.S., we can expect the engine’s torque peak to drop by about 20 lb.-ft.

Mazda CX-5 Diesel: We Drove Mazda’s Future Engine
https://www.autogo.ca/en/articles/41725 ... re-engine/
With a displacement of 2.2 litres, this four-cylinder engine is surprisingly powerful. According to emissions regulations in various countries, it produces up to 173 horsepower along with 310 pound-feet of torque. Since our emissions laws are stricter here in Canada and the U.S., we can expect the engine’s torque peak to drop by about 20 lb.-ft.

The diesel mill not only impresses on paper. That generous amount of torque means two things. We get pushed against the seatbacks during launches, and it provides lots of passing power if we feel the need to double a slower-moving vehicle ahead of us. Combined to the CX-5’s remarkable chassis, the dynamic driving characteristics of the vehicle are enhanced by the engine’s performance.

This diesel powertrain isn’t only interesting for its output. After driving nearly 350 km/h on the roads of Japan, shifting from city to countryside, in dense and fluid traffic, the trip computer displayed an average of 6.6 L/100 km. An excellent result, considering that the new Honda CR-V boasts a fuel economy average of 7.3 L/100 km.
