PERFORMANCE


Mazda CX-50

If you’ve been dreaming of feeling the power thrum beneath your feet, then it’s time to find the SUV that can fulfil that dream. Luckily, both the Mazda CX-50 and the Subaru Outback offer impressive powertrains.

How Does the Performance Measure Up?

When it comes to the 2023 Mazda CX-50, you’ll have two potent options:

  • SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine: 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque
  • SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L with Twin-scroll Turbo engine: up to 256 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque

In comparison, the Subaru Outback also has two available engines. The Subaru offers a standard 2.5L engine or an available 2.4L engine with a turbocharger.

With more than 300 lb-ft of torque, the Mazda CX-50 will have no trouble towing your belongings. The standard engine of the Subaru, however, delivers just 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque, lagging behind the standard Mazda engine.

Even with the turbocharger, the Subaru Outback only achieves an output of 277 lb-ft of torque, which is far less than the 320 lb-ft of torque the Mazda produces.

Plus, the Mazda CX-50 has more technology devoted to on-road traction and stability than what you’d get from the Outback. This is exemplified by Mazda intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive), which offers:

  • Normal Mode
  • Sport Mode
  • Off-Road Mode
  • Available Towing Mode

All of these modes will help you maintain traction.
