It will get a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine offers 256 horsepower, while the standard engine offers just 187 horsepower. CX-50 gets a six-speed automatic transmission as the standard equipment. The time taken to accelerate from zero to sixty mph is 6.6 seconds. It is a fair enough figure for a Mazda.
