Things You Need to Know Before Buying the Mazda CX-5

Mazda CX-5 2019


Powered by both the turbo 2.5-liter and the diesel engine, the CX-5 (especially the 2019 model) has great features for sleekness and durability. If you’re planning to buy the 2019 Mazda CX-5 with diesel, here are a few things to know about this popular Mazda model:


  1. Two New Luxury Trim Levels

Mazda has added the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels to the top of the CX-5 range. With an all-wheel drive and a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the car is loaded with every conceivable convenience and safety feature. This includes heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, Nappa leather, a 360-degree camera system, 19-inch alloy wheels, and a Bose audio system. 


  1. Turbo Power

When it comes to horsepower, Mazda has truly upped its game with the Mazda CX-5 SUV. The turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 227 horses when running on regular unleaded gas and 250 hp when given a diet of premium. 


  1. Superb Steering

If you crave the convenience and space of an SUV but you are unwilling to give up on the enjoyment of driving, the Mazda CX-5 is just the right car for you. The Mazda CX-5 comes equipped with an agile chassis and the best handling you can possibly imagine for an affordable midsize SUV. The SKYACTIV® platform, or the body and chassis, remains nimble at low speeds yet stable at higher speeds. That’s because SKYACTIV® uses ultra-high tensile-strength steel for a light but strong build.  With an almost smile-inducing precision and feel, you’re bound to enjoy driving your Mazda SUV anywhere and everywhere.


  1. Elegant Cabin

In addition to great handling, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 interior has sleek design that’s several notches higher than its competitors. This holds especially true for the posh Signature trim level, a Mazda SUV with real wood accents, satin trim finishes, high-quality leather, as well as piano-black surfaces on the dash. 


  1. Distinctive Exterior Design

It's hard to deny the style factor of the Mazda CX-5. With an elegant exterior, the car is extremely subtle with its details. A distinctive front end and shapely sides give this Mazda SUV a truly dynamic presence on the road.


  1. Rear Passengers Aren’t Left Out

Rear-seat accommodations aren’t always kind and comfortable. While the front-seat passengers travel luxuriously, the seats in the rear can often feel claustrophobic. However, that’s not the case with Mazda CX-5 interiors. Quality trim, padded armrests, and soft-touch surfaces extend to the rear seats as well. There’s a generous amount of headroom and legroom to ensure that passengers in every seat travel in comfort.

  1. Sharp Alloy Wheels

The Mazda CX-5 is accompanied by sharp wheels, especially when you opt for the wheel-arch-filling 19-inch numbers on higher trim levels. The Signature model of the Mazda CX-5 also comes fitted with smoke-finished alloys. 

  1. The Stellar Head-Up Display Unit

The sharp and informative head-up display unit of the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is full of useful information. This is a feature that many aren’t aware of, but one that comes in super-useful once you start using the car. Owing to its brightness and clear graphics, the HUD system on the CX-5 is an impressive addition.

  1. Smooth Six-Speed

Recalcitrant transmissions often ruin many fine engines. However, the 2019 Mazda CX-5’s automatic fitted six-speed are smooth and quick when changing gears. The gearbox of this Mazda SUV is much better behaved when compared to the continuously variable transmissions in other cars.


  1. Safety Features

When the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety conducted safety tests on the Mazda CX-5, the car scored a Top Safety Pick Plus rating, which is the highest possible score. The base CX-5 Sport comes with rear-cross traffic alert, blind spot monitors, and a low-speed front collision system. If you move one trim beyond the base CX-5, you will receive additional standard safety items like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and automatic high beams.
