Mazda PH Introduces New Top-Trim 2020 CX-5 Variant: the Signature AWD Diesel

Mazda Philippines finally completes its 2020 CX-5 line-up with the introduction of its new top-line model: the Signature AWD Diesel variant. Boasting aesthetic and performance-oriented changes, it’s set to move the goalpost once more in the compact crossover segment.

For 2020, the CX-5 AWD Diesel gets a boost for its 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D diesel engine. Like its application in the Mazda6, overall output now stands at 190 horsepower, while torque is up to 450 Nm. More than just additional power, multi-stage combustion makes the powertrain quieter and more refined than ever.

Along with the revised engine, the CX-5 AWD Diesel also benefits from surefooted handling thanks to G-Vectoring Control Plus, while ride is made plusher thanks to larger front dampers, and a tweaked rear suspension geometry.

Aesthetically, the 2020 model is barely different from the previous CX-5, except for a new design for its 19-inch wheels. Inside, is where majority of the changes lie. Like the rest of the refreshed CX-5 line-up, it gets a new instrument cluster with a 7-inch LCD screen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity. Befitting the Signature trim line though, the CX-5 AWD Diesel gets standard ventilated Nappa leather seats along with a frameless auto-dimming rear view mirror, and one-touch up/down for all windows.

Making its debut on the CX-5 is Mazda’s i-Activsense which now adds Smart City Brake Support and Driver Attention Alert along with Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep and Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The CX-5 Signature AWD Diesel also gets a 360-degree parking camera.

Now, if you’re wondering how much these changes cost, well, suffice to say, they aren’t free. Price is now up by P 120,000 to P 2,350,000. The 2020 CX-5 Signature AWD Diesel is now available at all authorized Mazda dealerships nationwide.

  1. Wow its only 600k cheaper than the bmw x1. No wonder Mazda sales are tanking

  2. Target market nito mga elite, not bad yun config if you can afford. Personally I'd settle sa Honda CRV diesel.

  3. Still no Adaptive cruise control?

    1. Nope. Still no adaptive cruise control for the PH model.

  4. Is the resolution of the screen on infotainment better now, just like CX30?

    1. No. Still the same display, but CarPlay and Android Auto is now standard.
