  • Performance

    Don't let its compact size fool you; the 2023 Mazda CX-5 is loaded with strength and has two different engine options, each offering different capability options. Regardless of which engine you choose, the CX-5 is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that allows it to be both powerful and fuel-efficient without compromise.

    The 2.5 Liter I-4 Engine

    The standard base engine for the Mazda CX-5 is far from basic. It produces 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. This combination of power and torque makes the CX-5 incredibly quick, even with its stock engine, with the ability to accelerate up to 60 mph in around 6 seconds! This quick engine is still easy to control and handle, making it great for any and every driver because it has great handling while still being powerful and fun to drive.

    The 2.5 Liter Turbo I-4 Engine

    While the base engine easily covers your normal daily challenges, the second engine option takes the CX-5’s power to the next level, with the 2.5L Turbo I-4 engine producing an impressive 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. It offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 22 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway, which is slightly less than the base engine's 24 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway; however, those few miles you sacrifice for the upgrade will reward you with more power and exceptional performance on the road.

  • Space

    One of the most important considerations we make when buying any vehicle is the amount of room we need. While there are many features we desire in our vehicles, without comfortable room for our passengers and belongings, the driving experience is spoiled. When it comes to the Mazda CX-5, you can rest assured that you will have ample room to bring everything you need, with enough space to make it comfortable, easy, and convenient to get from point A to point B. The CX-5 may not be a full-size SUV, but on the inside, you’ll feel like you have more than enough room to stretch out and enjoy the journey.

    Exceptional Cargo Capacity

    In terms of how much room your Mazda CX-5 can carry inside, you have a lot of space for you and your four passengers. This compact SUV may look smaller on the outside, but it's got plenty of head and leg room for everyone. If you’re filling all your passenger seats with people, your CX-5 can hold up to 30.9 cu.ft. of cargo in the back. This is the equivalent of about one suitcase per person or a full trunk of groceries. If you need more room, lowering the back seats will give you 59.6 cu.ft. of available cargo space, nearly double its original capacity. This kind of space is typically found in larger SUVs, but the CX-5 rises to the challenge with abundant cargo volume.

    Carry Even More With the CX-5's Phenomenal Towing Capability

    The beauty of the CX-5 is that if your interior cargo space is full, you still have the ability to tow even more of your belongings with the vehicle's impressive towing strength. The CX-5 is capable of hauling up to 2,000 lbs of cargo. This is enough to take all your household essentials with you on a trailer or even tow a couple four wheelers or dirt bikes with you. The 2023 CX-5 has been made incredibly capable despite its compact SUV category.

  • Trims

    Personalizing a vehicle used to be something that was out of reach for the majority of us, but technological advancements have made the possibility of creating our dream vehicle a very real possibility for everyone. The 2023 CX-5 has eight different trim options available for drivers to select from, offering a multitude of configurations.

    2.5 S

    This is the entry-level trim for the CX-5, but don’t let the standard moniker deter you. This trim sets the bar pretty high for all the other trim levels by including Mazda’s i-ACTIV all-wheel drive that closely monitors different road and wheel feedback and adjusts to road conditions by shifting power to where it is needed. This trim also includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing wireless connection from your SUV to your phone. Another more than just basic feature that Mazda has included with the S trim level is the advanced smart city brake support with pedestrian detection, as well as other driver-assist features like blind spot monitoring and the lane departure warning system with lane keep assist.

    2.5 S Select

    The next trim level is the S Select, which ups the ante even more for drivers by including a six-way power driver's seat with manual lumbar support. The front seats in this trim are also heated, allowing for toasty bottoms on even the coldest of days. Mazda has also included dual-zone climate control for those who no longer want to argue over the temperature settings in the car and enjoy the ride. The Select trim offers those looking for a little more than what's offered in the base trim, but don't want to jump up to the 2.5 Turbo Signature trim.

    2.5 S Preferred

    Following the previous trims is the S Preferred. This trim is packed with amazing comfort features such as leather-trimmed seats and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat. You also get a power sliding-glass moonroof with an interior sunshade that offers passengers an excellent view of the city lights or forest stars. This trim takes the remaining options to the next level, with the introduction of features that can only be described as luxurious.

    2.5 S Carbon Edition

    The S Carbon Edition of the CX-5 is all about giving your SUV a unique look. The exterior of the CX-5 comes with an exclusive polymetal gray metallic paint that gives the Carbon Edition a distinctive look when driving, as well as its 19-inch black metallic finished wheels. The interior of the Carbon Edition CX-5 comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel with distinctive red stitching that gives it a sharp look that stands out among the already stylish interior. This trim essentially gives your CX-5 an extravagant high-end look that is sure to make it stand out on the road.

    2.5 S Premium

    If you want to take your CX-5 up another notch, then the S Premium trim is where you should look. This trim adds on heated and body-colored mirrors along with upgraded wheels that are 19 inches with a black metallic finish. This trim also comes with paddle shifters, making your driving experience even more fun. This trim caters to those who want a sharper look with the CX-5.

    2.5 S Premium Plus

    The Premium Plus trim is where Mazda truly outdoes itself. This trim has it all. It comes with an upgraded BOSE sound system that includes a ten-speaker surround sound setup. The warm and toasty seat heaters now extend to the CX-5 passenger seats, and drivers get a windshield-projected active driving display that shows vital vehicle information while helping them keep their eyes on the road. This is the cream of the crop when it comes to 2023 Mazda trims, with an emphasis on comfort.

    2.5 Turbo

    This trim is specific to the turbo engine for the CX-5, so as part of the trim, drivers get the 2.5L Turbo I-4 engine and all the additional power it offers. Drivers of this trim also get a specialty grille with a gloss black finish that distinguishes it from the others. Wireless charging is another innovative feature for this trim that makes utilizing your phone convenient and easy. Those looking for the extra power of the engine upgrade should start their search with this trim.

    2.5 Turbo Signature

    As the final trim level for the 2023 Mazda CX-5, the Turbo Signature brings everything to the table. This trim gets upgraded Caturra Brown Nappa leather-trimmed seats and genuine layered wood interior trimming, giving it a plush interior atmosphere that sets it appart from the other trims. Drivers of this trim also get a slew of additional driver assist features like a 360-view monitor, a driver attention alert, and a traffic jam assist. On top of that, other great features like the Mazda navigation system and traffic sign recognition system are also included. To put it simply: this trim has everything. If you're looking for all the CX-5 has to offer in safety, comfort, and entertainment, look no further than the Turbo Signature.
