2021 Mazda CX-5 Overview

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 is a compact premium SUV that seats five passengers. Maximum cargo capacity is 59.6 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down.

Five trims are available: Sport, Touring, Carbon Edition, Grand Touring, and Signature. As its name implies, the new Carbon Edition trim level comes with a unique exterior treatment that includes a black grille, black side mirrors, and a metallic gray paint job.  

Powering the CX-5 is a standard 187-hp, 2.5-liter SKYACTIV four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is available. Fuel economy for the FWD CX-5 is an EPA-estimated rating of 25/31 mpg city/highway. It slightly decreases to a 24/30 mpg rating for the AWD CX-5.

Carbon Edition and higher trims also have a more powerful option: a 227-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine joined with the six-speed automatic only. Turbocharged models have slightly lower ratings – 23/28 mpg with FWD and 22/27 mpg with AWD.

Best buy for the price

The car is very comfortable. It's got a lot of wonderful features that I still have to learn how to use (just bought it). Did a lot of research prior to looking. It was rated very highly and wasn't overpriced.

Best car I have ever owned!

My first Mazda

by Mikaela from Jacksonville, FL | December 22, 2020

The comfort of the seats is my favorite part which helps for long car rides! Love the heated seats and sunroof! My only wish is that the sunroof extended farther back and was electric. The control system is easy to use and the Bose speakers are amazing. This car gets great gas mileage and is so easy and fun to drive. Has lots of room in the back for storage and it helps the back seats come down. I love this Mazda and all the features! Highly reccommend!
