They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts. If that’s the case, the CX-5 counts a lot. Under the hood of this compact crossover sits a 2.5L SKYACTIV®-G engine that delivers 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The interesting thing about that combination is that it puts your engine power right where it needs to be without jeopardizing your fuel efficiency. The 2018 CX-5 gets 25 city/31 hwy mpg, so you will likely be stopping for fuel fill-ups less frequently than your non CX-5-driving counterparts.

More Performance Features

We all know that Wisconsin roads can get pretty rough in the winter. Even when the ice melts, it’s still helpful to have the extra traction and stability that comes with a strong driving foundation. The CX-5 comes with available i-ACTIV AWD®, which is an intelligent all-wheel drive system that will monitor the outdoor temperatures to determine when the AWD system needs to be activated. Another technologies that helps make the CX-5 a step above the competition is the ultra-high tensile-strength steel frame, providing extra protection without the added weight. With SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with -Vectoring Control, you’ll achieve less-fatiguing driving due to the adjusted power delivery and weight shift that occurs.

The CX-5 is full of performance features designed to make the drive a more pleasurable experience, but there’s more to it than that. For more information, get in touch with the team here at Hall Cars or schedule a test drive today!
