- '18 CX-9 Signature
Not sure what you are asking. Just an observation. 100hp/L with FI isn't very impressive, but then again they had to turbocharge the 2.5 to get 250hp so it isn't anything new. Just sad they can't get anywhere near the competition. Hyundai is releasing an N version of the next gen Tuscon with 290hp out of the 2.5T so it can certainly be done.
Hyundai wasn't even in the conversation if you were cross-shopping with a CX-5 GT Reserve. They were ahead of the competition when they slapped the 2.5T into the CX-5.
