I think I've asked this question before, not to you specifically, but in general. Would a CX-5 spinning its tires be faster than a CX-5 accelerating slower than usual but whose tires are not spinning?I'm not buying a car that gimps out under any condition. I'm not that brand loyal to anyone.
I think Mazda decided to prioritize traction to stop people from losing control of their vehicles. It kind of falls in line with their jinba ittai philosophy too. No one mashes the gas pedal and expects to get wheelspin, they expect to move forward. Of course the issue here is slower acceleration, but you still move forward and maybe that's what they designed the car to do.
By the way all of this is assumption as I don't think anyone has determined what the real issue is.
