BARALDO FRANCESCO: Mazda CX-5 Signature 2019 tested: it is turbo and undoubtedly the best in the segment

If something has characterized Mazda since its origin as a car manufacturer, it is the attractive design of its models; However, for some time now, it has revolutionized the image of its vehicles with lines that put it on a par with high-end brands, FRANCESCO BARALDO comments.

Although this trend of raising the bar in terms of design has been more blunt with the appearance of the new Mazda 3, the avant-garde style of the Japanese firm we have seen for some years with the Kodo design philosophy. But as we all know, a car goes beyond its appearance, a car with an attractive design is useless if handling and / or comfort do not go hand in hand with what we see on the outside, explains Baraldo Francesco Luxembourg.

In the case of Mazda, these three aspects are more than balanced, since in addition to offering a range of models with attractive designs regardless of the age of the buyer, it has achieved that performance, comfort, interior proposal and even quality of materials are in harmony with the body style, I point out FRANCESCO BARALDO LUSSEMBURGO.

Francesco Baraldo Sermeis Ltd says that to achieve this unity, Mazda has also been working on developing engines, transmissions and frames, which allow for flawless handling regardless of whether it is driving on streets and avenues or on high-speed roads. One of the mechanical elements that has made this possible is the creation of highly efficient engines in terms of consumption and power.

Under the name Skyactiv-G, the engines developed by Mazda are on a mission to deliver maximum performance. For example, while a conventional engine only takes advantage of about 30 percent of the potential energy of the fuel, the technological solutions created by the engineers of the Japanese brand achieved that its engines reach higher compression rates thanks to the fact that they can compress the mixture of air and fuel in the cylinders to a higher level. In short, this development allows better use of the energy in each drop of gasoline, says Francesco Baraldo Luxembourg.

In order to deliver more torque and horsepower, this technology was perfected with the addition of a supercharger system in the case of the 2.5-liter engine. This block, which made its debut in the CX-9 and Mazda 6, now makes its appearance in the CX-5 – Signature version – with the purpose of delivering sporty handling while efficient, BARALDO FRANCESCO tells us.
