Volkswagen I.D. R sets new Pikes Peak record

Romain Dumas has toppled Sebastien Loeb's record at the Pikes Peak Hillclimb, hustling his Volkswagen I.D. R up the 19.99km course in 7:57.148 this morning. That's a full 16 seconds faster than Loeb and his Peugeot 208 T16 managed in 2013, and Dumas actually told reporters he could have gone faster if the clouds cloaking the hillclimb's summit had dissipated.

Autoevolution published a document (below) made to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) – the state's regulatory body for emissions and air quality – which apparently indicates the CX-5 will offer the 2.5-litre turbo as part of a 2019 model-year update.
