Refined Elegance: New 2022 Mazda CX-5

Mazda’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S., the Mazda CX-5, just got even more attractive to own and drive. The new 2022 Mazda CX-5, along with the rest of the new Mazda CX lineup, now feature standard all-wheel-drive. Subtle changes to the exterior of the already stylish CUV give the new Mazda CX-5 a more elegant appearance. The fun-to-drive Mazda CX-5 gets upgrades to the suspension and drive modes for a more refined ride. Get ready to turn heads in the new 2022 Mazda CX-5.

Elegant By Design

The new 2022 Mazda CX-5 embraces Mazda’s KODO design philosophy with refreshed exterior styling. New headlights join an updated front grille with sleek new signature wings that connect the two. Redesigned taillights and all-new aluminum alloy wheels round out the handsome exterior style updates. 

New Mazda CX-5 Turbo models get additional design updates. The 2022 Mazda CX-5 2.5 Turbo (previously the Grand Touring Reserve) receives a sportier look, including gloss-black accents throughout with contrast red stitching and accents adorning the interior. The new 2022 Mazda CX-5 2.5 Turbo Signature elevates its look with new body-color cladding and bright silver-finished wheels. Inside, enjoy premium Nappa leather and genuine wood trim.

All new 2022 Mazda CX-5 models get more comfortable and supportive seating to complement the refined new driving dynamics. Enjoy premium materials and a sleek, uncluttered design in an upscale cabin that will have your passengers thinking they are in a much more expensive vehicle. 

Refined Driving Dynamics

The 2022 Mazda CX-5 debuts the all-new Mazda intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) system that allows for more driver control of drive modes. Choose your drive mode based on driving conditions and drive style. The new Mazda CX-5 is still powered by the capable and efficient SKYACTIV-G® 2.5-liter engine with 187-hp, or upgrade to the turbocharged SKYACTIV-G® 2.5 Turbo with up to 250-hp. The 6-speed automatic transmission receives updates for more responsive and smoother acceleration. In the suspension, dampening is improved to provide a quieter ride with less vibration and road noise.

Standard i-Activ AWD

Starting with the 2022 model year, all new Mazda CX models, Mazda CX-3, CX-5, CX-9, CX-30, will come equipped with the Mazda i-Activ AWD system. This unique AWD system monitors weight transfer continuously, making adjustments based on cornering forces and acceleration to shift power to the best wheel. Near instantaneous response provides for an engaging drive, enhanced performance and improved safety. Mazda’s decision to include standard i-Active AWD on all new Mazda CX models enables more Mazda drivers to experience greater capability and excitement in all kinds of driving situations.
