Among the green cars making their debuts at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show this week is the 2012 Mazda CX-5. 

While it made its world debut back at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, we weren’t entirely sure what its specifications for the U.S. market would be. Now we do. 

Weighing in at under 3500 pounds, the 2013 Mazda CX-5 is a compact crossover capable of producing 155 horsepower from its 2.0 liter, four cylinder Skyactiv-G engine -- the same engine in fact as used in the 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv.

With what Mazda claims is the highest compression ratio engine for its class, the Mazda CX-5 is capable of producing 150 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, enabling the Mazda CX-5 to gain a 2,000 pound towing capability despite its small engine. 

Available in three different configurations: a six speed, front wheel drive manual, a six-speed front wheel drive automatic, or a six-speed automatic with all-wheel drive, Mazda’s CX-5 has been built with fuel economy in mind. 

Depending on which model you choose, Mazda claims fuel economy ranges from 26mpg city/33 highway for the front-wheel drive manual to 25 city/30 highway for the all-wheel drive auto. With Honda’s CR-V and Ford’s 2013 Escape also debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show, we’re keen to see which ends up winning in the compact crossover fuel economy race. 

We’ll be bringing you a first drive report of the Mazda CX-5 later on this week, but in the meantime, check out the live gallery below and be sure to follow GreenCarReports on Facebook and Twitter to get the very latest from the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show
