The Mazda CX-5 has been widely applauded for its balance between SUV design and planted performance. It's a crossover that gives you the practicality you need with the excellent driving dynamics you want.

Mazda has introduced some exciting updates for the 2019 CX-5. These new features only improve upon an already excellent small SUV.

Added Power

There's some exciting news under the hood with the 2019 CX-5. Drivers have enjoyed the balanced power and efficiency of the model's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, but now there's an even more powerful option. The 2019 CX-5 is now available with a turbocharged version of the engine that bumps power to 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This originally was initially available in the Mazda6 and CX-9, but Mazda has decided to expand it into its compact SUV. You can get the 2.5T engine in both the Reserve and Signature trims.

Refined Chassis

The CX-5 is widely known for its precise handling and smooth ride, but improvements to the 2019 model make it even better. The new G-Vectoring Control Plus system actively manages power delivery to optimize handling dynamics and comfort. As you head into a corner, the system shifts power and weight to keep the CX-5 as stable as possible. You'll notice the difference when you test drive the CX-5 for yourself.

Premium Trim Level

A new trim level brings a ream of extra premium features to the CX-5. Seats front and back get a Caturra Browns Nappa leather treatment, while the front seats get heating and ventilation functions. Real wood trim pieces add additional visual flair. LED lighting for the glove box, cargo area, and vanity mirrors is also added.

Smart Phone Connectivity

More and more, modern drivers want cars to seamlessly interface with their technology devices. Mazda is working toward that goal with the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to CX-5 trims Touring and above. That means you'll be able to connect your iPhone or Android device to the CX-5's center display screen. From there, you can operate many of your favorite apps like Spotify, navigation, Pandora, and much more.
