A worldwide favorite since its debut more than a decade ago, the new 2023 Mazda CX-5 continues a tradition of excellence that has led to the sale of more than 3.5 million of these compact crossover SUVs to date. Now in its second generation of design, the CX-5 embodies the essence of Mazda’s KODO design philosophy, both inside and out, with features such as standard all-wheel drive (AWD) capabilities and SKYACTIV® technology.
For 2023, Mazda offers the CX-5 in eight different trim packages, starting with the Mazda CX-5 2.5 S, notable for its advanced safety features and budget friendly entry price. In the middle is 2022’s most popular trim, the Mazda CX-5 2.5 Preferred, notable for its balance of power, luxury, and affordability. Finally, at the top of the line, the Mazda CX-5 2.5 Turbo Signature is equipped with Nappa leather seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, and 360-degree cameras. From blackest black to pearly white, the aesthetic appeal of the CX-5 is clear, as are the many features it offers to drivers who love to blend beauty with performance.
As evidenced by the millions of happy drivers already enjoying its features, the appeal of the Mazda CX-5 is undeniable. Drivers love it for both fuel economy and comfort.
The 2023 Mazda CX-5 offers competitive fuel economy that ranges from 22-24 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 27-30 mpg on the highway, enhanced by Mazda’s SKYACTIV®-G engine technology.
The Mazda CX-5 is classified as a “compact” crossover SUV. Within Mazda’s lineup, this positions it between the smaller CX-30 and the larger CX-50. It includes an EPA cargo volume of 58.1 cubic feet for all trims. All trim levels also offer five-seat capacity and one-touch, fold-down rear seats. All trim levels above the CX-5 2.5 Select also offer heated front seats.
More importantly, as Mazda’s signature vehicle featuring the KODO design philosophy, the CX-5 is especially notable for its interior (and exterior) design sophistication. This includes several refined details, such as layered wood trim and Nappa leather in select trim levels.
Mazda is committed to extending its concept of Jinba Ittai, or the unity of “rider and horse,” into the 21st century, starting with its enhanced connectivity and technology offerings. For the 2023 Mazda CX-5,
this includes a 2.5-inch, full color front display with Bluetooth capabilities. Each 2023 CX-5 model also supports Mazda Connected Services, which offers drivers remote start and vehicle health checks right from their smartphones.
In addition, starting at the 2.5 S Premium Plus trim level, the CX-5 offers an advanced, multi-speaker Bose sound system and Sirius XM satellite radio.
Mazda’s commitment to offer “confidence around every corner” is a motto that is integrated into the safety technology and features offered by the CX-5. For example, every 2023 CX-5 trim comes with Mazda’s i-Activsense® safety technology, including Advanced Smart City Brake Support, rear view monitors, and lane departure warning systems.
More advanced models include more advanced safety features, including 360-degree cameras, Traffic Jam Assist, and Driver Attention Alert.
The many standard benefits of the Mazda CX-5 are clearly impressive, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to make the driving experience even better. With Mazda CX-5 accessories, such as all-weather floor mats and cargo trays, it’s easy to add protection, style, and personalization to a new CX-5.
As of March 2022, Mazda has sold more than 3.5 million CX-5 models. Not surprisingly, the CX-5 has been the brand’s best selling vehicle every year since 2014.
The secret to the success of the CX-5 compact crossover is the unique combination of highlights it offers to drivers. In short, with a new Mazda CX-5, drivers get the benefit of Mazda’s signature design and luxury style coupled with its premium technology at an affordable price.
It is the unity of power, performance, and price that makes the CX-5 stand out among the competition, even within its own family.
The Mazda CX-5 received a thorough update for the 2022 model year, including new trim levels, new features, and a standard all-wheel drivetrain.
Consumers can expect to find these updates in the 2023 model, in addition to a new Rhodium White premium paint option. This is the first time North American consumers have had this color option from Mazda.
The balance of power, luxury, and affordability clearly make any new Mazda CX-5 rise above other compact crossover SUVs, but for many drivers, this is a feature best experienced first-hand.
