    The 6 is in the low to mid 6 second bracket

    A 2.5T sounds like a great option for the CX5 or CX8

    And SkyActiv-G 2.5T is designed for low-end touque at low rpm which is not good for fast acceleration. The engine is running out of breath above 4,250 rpm.

    Because it was primarily designed for the CX-9 which they did research and concluded that most of it's driving is at low speeds therefore no need for top end power

    CX-8 won't get 2.5T as it's the diesel "variant" for the CX-9
