It’s not hard to understand the popularity of Crossover SUVs. This is especially true when it comes to Mazda’s beloved CX-5, a vehicle that has it all and then some.
The CX-5 can handle any terrain or road condition, as it’s filled with modern safety and entertainment features. Plus, its responsive handling and the peppy engine will surprise you. Let’s take a closer examination of what makes Mazda’s CX-5 such a special vehicle.
Under the Hood
First, let’s look at the muscle. The available Skyactiv-G 2.5 T turbocharged gasoline engine delivers best-in-class torque. With 187 horsepower at 6,000 RPM, you’ll have more than enough strength at your disposal.
The 4-cylinder, in-line engine that comes standard in all trims will supply the oomph you need to pass trucks on the highway or push through snow or rainstorms. Plus, by efficiently providing exhaust gas to the turbine, the engine produces torque efficiently.
The Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology keeps engine temperatures down and prevents knocking, substantially improving fuel efficiency. Visit your local dealership to get a deal on a new ride that helps you save at the pump, even while giving you all the power you need to push ahead.
Rugged i-Activ AWD system
Crossover SUVs are known for being rugged and dependable in any condition, and the available i-Activ AWD system gives them the power to handle whatever the road throws their way. Sensors scan the road for changing conditions, and the vehicle itself can make adjustments with safety in mind.
For example, should the system detect that a back tire needs more power due to road slippage caused by ice or rain, it can send more torque to that specific tire at just the time it’s needed. Life doesn’t stop just because the weather is terrible — the CX-5 is designed to get you around safely in all conditions.
The CX-5 has a suite of advanced safety features known as i-Activsense, like blind-spot monitoring and Smart City Brake Support. Even when the weather is perfect out, and the roads are clean and clear safety matters!
G-Vectoring Control Plus
This Mazda feature is what creates the extra-smooth and effortless handling in vehicles like the CX-5 and others. It will feel like the vehicle understands and can respond to your every intention!
Subtly modulating the throttle allows the G-Vectoring Control Plus to keep tires stable from the beginning and end of the turn.
Smart and Modern Infotainment Centre
Pretty much every modern vehicle is designed to connect with your smartphone, but the new CX-5 has an infotainment system that is streamlined and easy to use. Effortlessly use the hands-free control to get help navigating, keep in touch with your contacts, or listen to music.
It works just as easily with Android and Apple smartphones. Get all the functionality you like without ever losing focus of what’s on the road ahead.
The CX-5 has the fundamentals covered — a powerful engine and incredibly nimble handling. When you add the smart and luxurious features for entertainment and safety, Mazda’s 2020 CX-5 truly is a vehicle that has it all.
