Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Mazda CX-5

John Diether
Automotive Editor - January 10, 2020
  • 2020 CX-5 selection looks good; 2019s still on sale
  • $1,500 factory rebate on 2019s
  • Lease a 2019 from $231 for 36 months
  • 0.9% APR for 60 months on both model years

What's in store:

The carryover 2020 CX-5 continues flowing into dealers and is now in good supply nationwide. The diesel version hasn't been released yet, but it's scheduled to continue for 2020.

The 2019 CX-5 is still available in decent numbers. Supplies will likely hold out for at least another month.

Current factory offers vary by region and will remain in effect through February 3, 2020. Examples shown here are for Los Angeles.

Steady cash off:

Mazda continues to offer a $1,500 rebate on all 2019 CX-5 models, except the diesel. In addition, current Mazda customers are eligible for a $750 loyalty bonus toward a purchase or lease of any 2019 CX-5.

Only the loyalty bonus is available on the incoming 2020 CX-5.

Solid lease value:

The 2019 CX-5 Sport now starts at $231 for 36 months (12,000 miles a year) with $2,999 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost is $314, which falls short of a good value in our analysis. We could see improvement before the 2019s sell out.

The 2020 CX-5 Sport starts at $249 a month with everything else the same. With an effective monthly cost of $334, this lease is tad expensive for this price class. We do expect offers to improve over the next several months.

Low rate await:

Instead of the factory rebate on a 2019 CX-5, Mazda is offering 0.9% financing for 60 months on all non-diesel models. The best available rate on the CX-5 diesel is 2.9% for 60 months.

You can now get 0.9% for 60 months on the 2020 CX-5 as well. That's lower than usual for this early stage of the model year.

2020 Mazda CX-5 Overview

Joel Patel
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 gets more standard safety features. Lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control are all now standard.

Mazda’s engineers have also improved the CX-5’s ride to reduce the amount of road noise and harsh vibrations coming into the cabin. The result, in the automaker’s words, is a more premium crossover.

Opting for the turbocharged engine now brings 10 more pound-feet of torque than before. A new off-road traction assist feature has been added, as well, that makes the CX-5 better at finding its footing in low-traction situations.

Choosing Your Mazda CX-5

The CX-5 is offered in five trims: Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature. Prices range from $26,135 including destination for the Sport to $38,100 for the Signature trim.

Engine Choices

Mazda offers the CX-5 with three engines. The Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring get a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder, while the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature feature a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. While no official word from Mazda has been given, we expect the 2.2-liter turbodiesel, which was introduced last year, to remain optional on the Signature trim.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.5L 4-Cylinder187 hp186 lb-ft28 mpg
2.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder250 hp320 lb-ft24 mpg
2.2L Turbodiesel 4-Cylinder168 hp290 lb-ftNot Yet Rated

A six-speed automatic transmission is standard for all of the engines. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is a $1,400 option on the Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims. The Grand Touring Reserve and Signature come with all-wheel drive as standard.

The diesel powertrain is a rare option for the compact crossover segment. While we’re still waiting on fuel economy figures for the 2020 version, we weren’t impressed with the EPA figures the 2019 model got (28 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 29 combined).

Out of the three engines, the turbocharged motor is our favorite.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Mazda CX-5 can hold five passengers. Cargo capacity is below average for the class, at 30.9 cubic feet behind the rear seat and a total of 59.6 with it folded down.

Safety Features

Mazda’s expanded the CX-5’s list of safety features for 2020. Automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are all standard.

The Grand Touring trim can be equipped with a head-up display through the GT Premium Package ($1,625), while it becomes standard on the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature. Front and rear parking sensors and a surround-view camera system are also standard on the range-topping Signature trim.

Connectivity

The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, two front USB ports, HD radio, Bluetooth, and Pandora and Stitcher integration. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come starting with the Touring, which also gets two rear USB ports.

The Grand Touring adds satellite radio, while moving up to the Grand Touring Reserve brings an 8-inch touchscreen. The range-topping Signature gets navigation.

Sport - From $26,135

The base Sport trim comes well equipped with remote keyless entry, push button start, LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

On the inside, it comes with a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, cloth upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The driver's seat is six-way manually adjustable, while the front passenger seat is only four-way.

Touring - From $27,775

Moving up to the Touring brings auto-leveling LED headlights, leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, smartphone integration, and dual-zone climate control.

If buyers want more convenience features, they can tick the box for the Touring Preferred Equipment Package ($1,375), which includes a moonroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power rear liftgate, and a 10-speaker Bose audio system.

Grand Touring - From $31,255

The mid-level Grand Touring trim adds quite a lot of features over lower trims. LED exterior lights, 19-inch wheels, adaptive headlights, a moonroof, and a power liftgate are standard. The cabin features leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver’s seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The Grand Touring is available with the aforementioned GT Premium Package ($1,625), which adds heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, auto power-folding side mirrors, and the head-up display.

Grand Touring Reserve - From $36,080

The Grand Touring Reserve adds the turbocharged engine, the auto power-folding side mirrors, ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel as standard equipment.

Signature - From $38,100

Standard features on the top-of-the-line Signature trim include 19-inch wheels, a universal garage door opener, LED interior lighting, Nappa leather upholstery, and wood trim.

CarsDirect Tip

With the changes to the 2020 Mazda CX-5, lower trims are even more attractive. Mazda’s attempting to move upstream with its vehicles and it’s working. The Touring manages to feel upscale while having an affordable price tag. More importantly, it also comes with smartphone compatibility, which is quickly becoming a must-have feature for a lot of consumers.
