What is a CUV? Crossover Utility Vehicles, or CUVs, are SUV-like vehicles that drive more like a car. You get the space and capabilities of an SUV but with better fuel economy and more agile handling. Mazda CUVs include the entire Mazda CX line that are high style, high tech, high performance vehicles that are also affordable and equipped with Mazda’s i-Activesense suite of safety features. Explore the Mazda CX lineup below.
The 2021 Mazda CX-3 is the smallest CUV in Mazda’s lineup, but it really gives you the best of an SUV and a sedan. You’ll love the peppy, car-like driving dynamics and middle seating height that elevates you higher than a Mazda3, but you get more room inside. i-ACTIV AWD® is now available for the 2021 model year, and Mazda kept it simple with a single trim, the 2021 Mazda CX-3 Sport. The new Mazda CX-3 seats five comfortably and features head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ on a 7-inch touchscreen. The artfully designed 2021 Mazda CX-3 gets about 34 mpg*.
A 2020 Car and Driver 10Best, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 offers incredible value and lots of fun. Head turning design, agile handling, a smooth, quiet ride and luxurious interior features make the new Mazda CX-5 stand out from the crowded crossover market. New for the 2021 model year, the Mazda CX-5 now has a 10.25” touchscreen display, available 360-degree camera, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, and available heated front and rear seats. You can choose from the standard engine or boost up to the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo engine with up to 250-hp and 320 lb-ft of torque and i-ACTIV AWD® to maximize driving capability. The 2021 Mazda CX-5 gets up to 31 mpg*.
If you need more cargo or passenger room but don’t want to give up a joyful drive, the new 2021 Mazda CX-9 is for you. With seating for up to seven, the Mazda CX-9 boasts sharp handling, an engaging drive, and an upscale cabin with plenty of amenities. Upgrade to 2nd-row captain’s chairs to add a center console in the middle row, choose available quilted Nappa leather to add some luxury to the cabin, or add a wireless charger and moonroof to top it all off, available in the upper trims. Amazing standard features include heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a 10.25” touchscreen, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, and every Mazda CX-9 trim is equipped with the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo engine!

New for the 2021 model year is standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration as well as the option to upgrade to the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo engine and i-ACTIV AWD® with Off-Road Traction Assist. Other exciting available features include heated front seats and steering wheel, power moonroof, a rear power liftgate, a Bose® 12-speaker audio system, and additional safety features like Traffic Sign Recognition and 360-degree view monitor.
