    Sales of the CX-50 are about a quarter of those of the CX-5. The new hybrid variant should help it close the gap.

    •    The Mazda CX-50 will be available in hybrid configuration for 2025; here are the range details for the new year, including pricing.

    Big news for Mazda's third best-selling SUV in Canada. The CX-50 will be available in a hybrid configuration for 2025. At the same time, Mazda Canada is announcing a host of changes for its rugged performer.

    The new hybrid powertrain joining the offering is that of the Toyota RAV4 hybrid, which uses a 2.5L, 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine. With two electric motors (front and rear) contributing, this powertrain delivers a total output of 219 hp and 163 lb-ft of torque in the RAV4, and it will be the same in the new 2025 CX-50 hybrid.

    Average fuel consumption is announced at 6.2L/100 km, which represents a 40-percent improvement over the performance of the regular gasoline-engine CX-50.

    Starting price in Canada of the new CX-50 hybrid is set at $42,950, which is exactly $3,000 more than the entry-level gasoline-only model. In all, three trim levels will be available in hybrid mechanical configuration.
