MAZDA CX-5 Performance Specs
The Mazda CX-5 is known for being quite fun to drive with a smooth ride and nimble agility. The standard engine is a Skyactiv®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder one, which is mated to a Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly and quickly for a steady acceleration.
The engine delivers 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, plenty of power for everyday driving. However, the Dynamic Pressure Turbo system present on the Carbon Edition Turbo, the Grand Touring Reserve, and the Signature trims, upgrades the output to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque.
The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with front-wheel drive while offering available i-Activ AWD® with Off-road Traction Assist. This system will stay on top of changing road conditions and predict when i-Activ AWD® might be needed. It’ll then evenly distribute power between the front and rear wheels, resulting in optimum traction on any road surface.
Interior Design & Amenities
Take one step inside the Mazda CX-5, and you’ll notice the cabin is well-designed with plenty of high-quality materials throughout. The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with cloth-trimmed seats. However, it also offers available leatherette seats and Caturra Brown Nappa leather-trimmed seating. In combination with the available genuine layered wood trim, the vehicle has a truly sophisticated look and feel to it.
The Mazda CX-5 has available seating for up to five passengers, with 41 inches of legroom up front and 39.6 inches of legroom in the back. With 57.1 inches of shoulder room up front and 54.8 inches in the back, you and your passengers will have plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable.
There are also plenty of amenities to help keep everyone happy. These include available heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control with pollen filter. These features will help you maintain a nice, happy, and comfortable driving experience for all of your passengers.
When it comes to storage space, the Mazda CX-5 features a standard 30.9 cubic feet of cargo volume. This is great for everyday items, like groceries, school bags, or even luggage for a trip. If you need more space, say for larger bags or maybe picking up a new TV, the second row can be folded down to reveal a whopping 59.6 cubic feet of cargo volume.
