2020 MAZDA CX-5 Review

Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 underwent a full redesign just a few short years ago. The latest model, the 2020 Mazda CX-5, retains that beautiful Soul of Motion design philosophy. However, this version comes with the new diesel engine right out of the gate! We want to reveal all for Gastonia, Charlotte, and Lincolnton drivers.

We’ll show you what we expect from the latest Mazda CX-5. Learn about the release date and more from us at Mazda of Gastonia! We’re happy to share what we know with our valued shoppers.

2020 MAZDA CX-5 Performance

Mazda CX-5 Engine SpecsThe current model year of the Mazda CX-5 is powered by a Skyactiv®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. This powerplant offers 187 horsepower and moves this crossover SUV without problem. A Skyactiv®-G 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder is also available and it kicks out a livelier 250 horsepower.

These two engines are expected to carry over to the 2020 Mazda CX-5. Also carrying over will likely be the diesel engine first introduced to the current model year lineup: the Skyactiv®-D 2.2L turbodiesel 4-cylinder, first used in the European model.

Expect it to fuse performance with exceptional fuel economy! With an impressive 290 lb-ft of torque on tap, it has impressed drivers thus far and will continue to in 2020.

SUV Interior Refinement

The Mazda brand is known for the premium materials it uses in its cabins. The Mazda CX-5 has been no exception. In fact, the current model offers deluxe Nappa leather, which is soft to the touch and easy to clean. Its surface retains a natural leather look and goes great alongside the layered wood accents.

You should see these materials available in the 2020 model as well. The leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great under your hands and adds even more quality to the cabin. Plus, available heated and cooled front seats will help you drive in any weather.

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 will be a compact SUV with seating for five. With seats roomy enough for adults in the front and rear, you can make your next adventure count!

MAZDA CX-5 Technology

MAZDA CX-5 Apple Car PlayThe Mazda Connect™ infotainment system has long been a staple in this brand’s vehicles. The system includes touchscreen technology and offers connectivity via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. These features let you pair a compatible smartphone with the touchscreen and use key apps as you drive.

The current model year Mazda CX-5 also includes an available Bose® audio system. With 10 well-placed speakers, it delivers an immersive listening experience. You’ll feel as if you have front-row seats to your very own concert!

At Mazda of Gastonia, we expect to see these features on the new Mazda CX-5 as well. Make the most of your drive with the latest in infotainment technology.
