had the cx5 in at work today!
« on: December 05, 2011, 09:29:35 PM »
right so mazda came down today with a cx5 in stormy blue with the sky active d engine, looked like a very nice very well made car, the inside is very Audi/Bmw, as is the outside for the matter, spec wise its awesome with every thing, satnav, bose, climate, fogs, auto lights and wipers, leather ect ect ect, and my god is that new sky engine quiet, i didnt even know it was the d i thought it would have been the petrol version!

all in all looks like a very nice car, havent had the joy of driving one yet but ohh well!

cannot wait for this car to come out should be a big seller i think!

 I too think it will be a great seller. I have only read reviews on the lower powered sky-active diesel. If you get the more powerfull diesel in let us know what you think. A Mazda 3 with that engine should be great.

Keep us posted Samp.

your right the high power cx5 is ment to be faster to 60 than the current mazda 3 2.2d 185! so god only knows how quick it will be in the 3, rumors are that in the 3 it will be matching the pace of the mps off the mark!

I've seen 8.8s mentioned in a couple of places. 0-60 quoted from manufacturers can be manipulated to either be a low value to attract certain customers or higher to help insurance levels. Same goes for quoted power values. It can depend on how they set up the car when doing the test i.e. what load (energywise) they decide to impart on the engine at the testing stage. This may not be true these days due to 'rules' but it was known BMW used to do their tests with little load to give high stated power values whereas Skoda tested with large loading to give smaller power values than were actually measured 'on the road'. For example, the Fabis vrs - the quoted value (130bhp, I think) was always exceded when independently tested and by a fair margin too!

20 grand says I have to buy a house first, not a car. Would have to be an auto though but I haven't seen any emmissions figures for the autos yet.

As to the powers, I supposedly got 100hp at the wheels from my 1.6 and 115ish at the fly. Its a dyno-lottery.

they are higher than an f1 car, the highest compression petrol ever produced ;) and the deisels are the lowest compression ever used in a car.
