What's New for 2019 in Mazda CX-5?

In search of an everyday compact crossover for routine commutes, weekly grocery runs, local weekend outings, or even the occasional tame day-trip? The new Mazda CX-5 is not that SUV. In fact, it's the exact opposite, and so much more. Back for the new 2019 model year, it's capable, exceptionally safe, luxuriously comfortable, expertly equipped, and above all, an absolute blast to drive. With the load of exciting updates inside and out that Mazda sent with it, that's not hyperbole, either. Check out what's new here at O'Brien Mazda of Fort Myers!

  • For one, there's a new top-tier CX-5 Signature trim with a luxe interior. Step inside, and expect to see sumptuous Caturra Brown Nappa leather seating, genuine layered wood trim, satin chrome accents, a uniquely-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient interior LED lighting, a black headliner, and a frameless rearview mirror. There's even a new 360-degree view monitor equipped with front and rear parking sensors for comprehensive situational awareness.
  • Secondly, Mazda added a turbocharged SKYACTIV®-2.5T engine, capable of shelling out 310 pound-feet of torque at a low 2,000 rpm as well as up to 250 horsepower. The takeaway: CX-5 accelerates more eagerly and works harder than ever.
  • Third, CX-5 now has a more refined suspension, re-tuned to quash excess friction and with improved geometry. The result: its wheels more easily surmount bumps, body motion's better controlled, and it can corner more naturally, with a smoother, more linear feel.
  • Next, the SUV now incorporates the latest in G-Vectoring Control technologies. They're standard across all trim levels, offering both more precise and consistent steering and better stability.
  • Other enhancements: A 7-inch touchscreen now makes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available, extending smartphone integration throughout the line. A reconfigurable 7.0-inch instrument cluster is newly available, as are ventilated front seating, power-folding mirrors, SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link update support.

There's plenty more where these upgrades came from. Our automaker's flagship compact crossover SUV also offers:

  • Available i-ACTIV AWD, an exclusive predictive all-wheel drive system
  • Excellent fuel economy -- up to 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway
  • Active safety and driver-assistance features such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, smart city brake support, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, advanced smart city brake support, pedestrian detection, smart brake support, lane departure warning, and lane-keep assist
  • A power sliding-glass moonroof with one-touch-open capability and an interior sunshade
  • Three-level-heated front seating
  • An optional dual-zone auto climate control system with a pollen filter
  • Available 10-speaker Bose audio with Centerpoint 2 and AudioPilot 2 technology
  • Optional Mazda navigation
  • As much as 59.6 cubic feet of room for cargo
  • The ability to tow as much as 2,000 pounds when properly equipped, and more
