Mazda revealed its second-generation CX-5 at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, and it appears the SUV is set to receive significant updates for the 2019 model year. This includes the adoption of the brand’s 2.5 litre turbocharged four-cylinder that is currently offered for the latest Mazda 6 and CX-9.

In a post on Reddit, a member of the site was shown a printout of the automaker’s 2019 model year updates when he visited his local Canadian dealership. The SkyActiv-G T unit makes 250 hp and 420 Nm of torque in the 6 sedan, but it isn’t mentioned in the document whether it’ll be the same for the SUV.

Nonetheless, it should exceed the current 2.5 litre SkyActiv-G naturally aspirated engine, which serves up 192 hp and 257 Nm. A six-speed automatic transmission will likely be paired with the turbo mill, and base models (sold in Canada) are said to come with a six-speed manual option as well. Keep in mind that there is a likelihood the new engine will not make its way to Malaysia, as it wasn’t offered for the facelifted 6 when it was launched here in August.

The document also shows what is referred to as G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC+), although the final name for the technology might be changed later on. On the CX-5, the standard G-Vectoring Control (GVC) system varies engine torque in response to steering inputs, subtly controlling lateral and longitudinal acceleration forces for more efficient and comfortable vehicle motion.

Aside from the new driving-related features, the refreshed CX-5 is also claimed to gain updated styling, new 17- and 19-inch alloy wheels, a redesigned instrument cluster that includes a seven-inch display (possibly hinted in a Mazda 3 test mule previously), automatic power-folding side mirrors (when locking/unlocking the vehicle) and improved rear seat comfort – revised seat back angle and cushion construction.

Equipment updates include market-specific items like ventilated and heated front seats for certain trim levels, satellite radio services, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for the MZD infotainment system. We’ll have more information once the new CX-5 makes its official debut.
