What Is the 2022 Mazda CX-5?
The Mazda CX-5 compact SUV has seating for five and a choice of two four-cylinder engines. The base engine is a 187-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and there’s an available 227-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. The turbo engine’s power bumps up to 256 hp when running on 93-octane premium fuel instead of regular gas. A six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. The CX-5 competes against the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson and Toyota RAV4.

The CX-5 offers 17.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind its backseat, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements.

What’s New on the 2022 Mazda CX-5?

Should I Buy the 2022 Mazda CX-5?
The Mazda CX-5 continues to be a practical compact SUV, with the added bonus of being relatively entertaining to drive. A subtle exterior update keeps the CX-5 looking fresh, but newly standard all-wheel drive helps boost this Mazda’s appeal. The CX-5’s backseat can feel cramped, however, and the console-based multimedia controller is frustrating to use.
