Mazda turbo or no turbo


Topic starter

I’m looking at the Mazda CX-50 and want to know if it’s worth spending the extra money to go for the GT with turbo or not. Do I lose out on any major features beside having more power and towing capabilities.

Stay away from turbo engines as they don't have the longevity of a non-turbo engine.
