Many have described Mazda CX-5 as the best looking and the best driving compact crossover on the market. With its distinctive styling, great performance ability, and charming driving dynamic, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is coming better than ever. Yes, when speaking of numbers, CX-5 isn’t the best. But when you put all its features, rich-looking interior and capabilities in one, you will get the complete crossover.
Now, Mazda CX-5 is coming with many new updates. The fuel efficiency is improved, the interior is boosted, and there are plenty of new safety features as well.
2019 Mazda CX-5 Kodo” design language
Even that the newly 2019 Mazda CX-5 share dimensions with its predecessor, it looks both longer and wider, mostly thanks to a massive front grille. Furthermore, slim LED headlights and A-pillars that are pushed back a little bit, adds to its exterior look and appeal.
However, some exterior changes didn’t help this compact crossover SUV to gain more cargo space. There are just 31 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up. The new Soul Red Crystal color is available, and it defines the company’s “Kodo” design language.
2019 Mazda CX-5 Interior
The cabin materials are top-notch, and there is more than enough space in the front seats. All CX-5 models are coming with two-row seats for up to five passengers. However, It is still a struggle to fit three adults in the back. Thanks to the wide-opening doors, the child seats are now much easier to install.
This classy cabin is boosted with some standard features like a push-button start and a 7-inch touchscreen display.
Some features are optional, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but Mazda says that these systems can be added later, retroactively. Three main trims are coming with the 2019 Mazda CX-5. Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. Sport model is available with cloth seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and shift knob. Furthermore, electronic parking brake and the Smart City Brake Support active-safety system has been added. A blind-spot monitoring, a rear cross-traffic, and rearview camera are available as well.
2019 Mazda CX-5 Touring model
The CX-5 Touring model adds more leatherette inside the cabin plus heated seats and dual-zone climate control. Premium Bose audio system with 10 speakers is optional, just as a head-up display, heated steering wheel, and also heated rear outboard seats. No questions, Mazda CX-5 offers amazing features with premium feel interior.

Up to this date, only one engine is available for a 2019 Mazda CX-5. It is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Skyactive gasoline unit with a cylinder deactivation. This engine is tied to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
This drivetrain is perhaps not the most efficient or powerful in its class, but it is a great combination of a fuel economy. Front-wheel drive is a standard and all-wheel drive is optional. With an AWD, fuel economy is 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
