Mazda’s premier compact crossover SUV, the Mazda CX-5 has a number of improvements incoming for the 2022 model year. Sweetening the deal on this new model is the fact that the base price is pretty similar to last year’s model, so if you’re looking for an upgrade, 2022 is your year!

Among the improvements and changes to the 2022 Mazda CX-5 is a rearranged trim structure, so you’ll get to choose between the base Mazda CX-5 2.5 S, and add-on packages including Select, Preferred, Premium, and Premium Plus. Read on to find out the other changes coming to Mall of Georgia Mazda in the new year!

Improved Mazda CX-5 Engine Options

The CX-5 is a top pick for drivers who prioritize performance, and Mazda’s paid attention to those customers. For the new year, Mazda’s engineers have revised the suspension and transmission in the CX-5, as well as improved the engine to a naturally-aspirated 2.5L inline-four-cylinder pulling 187 hp, with a turbocharged option that makes 6 more horsepower than previous iterations for a total of 256 hp.

All-Wheel Drive Now Comes Standard

Previously, all-wheel drive was a $1400 add-on to the CX-5. For 2022, Mazda has made this feature a standard on all models of this compact crossover, leading to better handling, more traction on slippery road surfaces, and more all-around fun on every drive. That powertrain is coupled with a revised six-speed automatic transmission, too, and an Intelligent Drive Select to change driving modes at the press of a switch.

Redesigned, Inside and Out

The 2022 Mazda CX-5 gets a fresh exterior, with an updated grille, headlights, taillights, and wheels, so it’s guaranteed to turn heads on the street or in the driveway. It’s also got redesigned, more comfortable seats, and the 2.5 Turbo trim gets an ultra-stylish black exterior with red interior accents.
