How many cylinders is a Mazda CX-5?

I test drove a Mazda CX-5 last week. It had pretty good oomph but I can’t remember if it had a V6 or not. How many cylinders is a Mazda CX-5?

There are four cylinders in a Mazda CX-5.
Your test-drive vehicle may have had a 2.0 or 2.5L engine, but it definitely had four cylinders.
The base model gets 187 hp, which isn’t too shabby for this type of compact SUV. But if you need more power, there is an optional turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 256 hp. However, this is only available on the higher trim levels.
All rumors point to the future development of a V6 Mazda CX-5. This car might get a new name and we’re not totally sure when it will be available, but keep a lookout.
If you’re in the market for a new car, make sure you start shopping for car insurance ahead of time. You should have coverage before you drive off the lot. And don’t forget to ask your insurance company for a multi-vehicle discount.
Mazdas can last a long time and they’re considered highly reliable when compared to most other car brands.
Good luck with your car shopping!
