Mazda CX-8 updated in Japan 2.5L turbo, GVC Plus

Much of this pep will come from the turbocharged version of the 2.5 litre SkyActiv-G four-cylinder petrol engine, producing 230 PS at 4,250 rpm and 420 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. It delivers a fuel economy figure of 11.6 km per litre on the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).

The engine is also now available in naturally-aspirated form as well, making 190 PS at 6,000 rpm and 252 Nm at 4,000 rpm; equipped with cylinder deactivation, it does 12.4 km per litre. The 2.2 litre SkyActiv-D turbodiesel remains, as does the six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission.
