    2016 Mazda CX-5 OVERVIEW

    Standing out in the crowded compact crossover field can be tough, but the athletic Mazda CX-5 has always been different enough to stay on buyers' radar. To ensure it remains competitive with the best of the breed, Mazda has treated the CX-5 to a midlife makeover that's especially apparent inside.

    What's New for 2016

    The interior receives a thorough freshening, highlighted by a new center console and electronic parking brake. The CX-5 also carries a revised grille and updated suspension system.

    Choosing Your Mazda CX-5

    The CX-5's redesigned cabin achieves an upscale feel this year, something that was lacking in previous editions. Although dimensions have not changed, the elimination of a traditional parking brake and the new storage-rich console give an airy vibe to the interior. The CX-5 is known more for its sprightly handling than its utility, but you do get 65 cubic feet of cargo space, a competitive amount for this class.

    • The front-drive CX-5 starts out with a 2-liter four-cylinder engine good for 155 horsepower, paired with your choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Either way, expect to get about 29 mpg in combined driving.
    • The available 2.5-liter four-cylinder provides a boost to 184 horsepower and comes only with the automatic.

    The larger engine is standard on the upper trim levels and any model with the $1,250 option of all-wheel drive. It makes a dramatic difference in the CX-5's performance and trails the 2-liter in efficiency by just 1 mpg, even in all-wheel drive spec.

    As before, the CX-5 is offered in Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trims:


    Carries the 2-liter engine and all the expected standard features for this class. Opting for all-wheel drive gets you the 2.5-liter engine as well. The available Bluetooth Audio package enhances the sound system with Bluetooth phone and audio, voice controls, a touchscreen interface, integrated text messaging, automatic crash notification, and HD and Internet radio. Individual options include rear parking sensors, foglamps and remote ignition (requires automatic transmission).


    Adds $2,020 to the Sport's MSRP and comes standard with the 2.5-liter engine and all of the Sport's options. Additional upgrades include a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, a power driver seat, premium cloth upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Moonroof and Bose Audio package adds a sunroof and a nine-speaker Bose sound system. There's also a Technology package with a navigation system, satellite radio, adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, automatic wipers and automatic emergency braking (known as Smart Brake Support).

    Grand Touring

    Ups the Touring's price by $3,005, getting its equipment and options as standard, plus leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and 19-inch wheels. Exclusive to the Grand Touring is the available i-Activsense package, which adds adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic high beams. All-wheel drive continues as an option.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Any CX-5 is a good deal -- even a fully loaded CX-5 Grand Touring with all-wheel drive checks in at less than $30,000.
