An imminent update for the  Mazda CX-5 looks set to introduce a turbo-charged petrol engine to the popular family SUV.

A photo of a Mazda Canada document, labelled "for internal use only" is being shared on social media, and outlines some significant changes for the CX-5.

A supposedly ‘leaked’ document is making the rounds on social networking site Reddit claiming next year’s Mazda CX-5 will get a 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbo engine.

The document also states the five-seater will get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across every trim level.

The Reddit user that posted the document claims a salesperson showed it to him.

Mazda hasn’t confirmed the changes, but if they are legitimate the 2019 CX-5 will get the same running gear as its bigger brother, the CX-9.

Mazda introduced the CX-9’s new engine in 2016, which has since seen it adapted into the latest-generation 6 sedan and wagon.

The new turbo four-cylinder engine produces 170kW of power and 420Nm of torque and if it makes its way into the CX-5, the outcome would be a fairly sporty mid-sized SUV.
