    Yeah, the sound tube in the ND Miatas come to mind when I read that.

    Not that I intended to get one, but I wonder what the fate of the Diesel engine will be for 2020.

    You mean the "Engine Harmonics Enhancer" ?
    Sounds like a balance shaft type thing to me, but who knows.
    SkyActiv-G 2.5L and 2.5T have already had a balance shaft. So I believe Unobtanium’s guess is correct.

    I would guess one and done. My dealer still has the 4 they received when they came out. I'm sure they'll be around until they drop the price ~$10k.

    Though there's no mention of it, I wonder if LED turn signals were added to any of the premium models.

    I enjoy the occasional downshifts enough to wait for the 2020's.

    My guess is not as it costs too much.

    LED turn signals applied to CX-5 can only be happened when there’s major re-design of headlights and tail lights.

    Yep, I always use my paddles in the CX-5 for downshifting for engine braking, or banging down a few gears before the corner.

    Saves brake wear also!

    Why not, regardless, unless you're more interested in nabbing a deal on a 19? If you dont like paddles...dont use em, lol

    I think its going to be a tough year for the CX-5 with the Hybrid Rav4, Refreshed CR-V (and hybrid coming soon), and new Ford Escape.

    What is this refreshed CR-V you speak of? Didn't they just remove the 2.4 from the lowest trim and add a stop/start system? They have done nothing to solve the OD issue. The hybrid could be an interesting model, though. Mazda doesn't really compete with hybrids, so I'm not sure how many sales they will take away.

    They updated the inside/outside a bit, in addition to the engine change and rolling out their safety sense to everyone. And honestly, I think the OD issues effects sales the same way Mazda CD issues effect ales... Not at all, or at least not enough to actually matter.

    And I think its short sited to say Mazda doesn't compete with hybrids. It competes against every SUV in that class, and it sounds like the RAV4 Hybrid is selling very well.

    The Rav4 hybrid is an excellent vehicle, if you don't mind wearing protective ear muffs at high speed.

    Actually based on the YouTube the highway noise on RAV4 is not that bad. At 78 mph 2019 was tested about 72 dB and 2020 was about 68 dB on non-hybrid RAV4.
