Mazda CX-5 Technology

The Mazda CX-5 is routinely praised for its ingenuity. The technologies Mazda has baked into this SUV extend to entertainment, safety, and performance. When you consider it all together, the abundance of 2021 Mazda CX-5 technology is a truly impressive feat.

So, how can you familiarize yourself with this technology? A test drive around Gastonia, Lincolnton, and Charlotte, NC, would certainly help. Without having to leave your home, though, you could also read through this Mazda CX-5 technology guide.

Our Mazda of Gastonia staff thought we’d provide an idea of what some of these core technologies do!

2021 Mazda CX-5 Engine Specs

Mazda CX-5 Performance Technologies

To create an SUV that runs as smoothly as the Mazda CX-5 does, Mazda had to reach deep into their bag of mechanical technologies.

At the top of the trim list, the Mazda CX-5 sports a dynamic pressure turbo system that helps the 2.5L engine produce 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. To help you retain traction over slick surfaces, the SUV also touts Skyactiv®-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus.

Other notable performance technologies include:

  • Available i-Activ AWD® with Off-road Traction Assist
  • Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission, with manual-shift and Sport modes

Mazda CX-5 Safety Technologies

Similar to every other vehicle in the Mazda lineup, the Mazda CX-5 is actively working to keep you and your passengers protected. Here are a trio of important safety technologies you can expect:

  • Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go

Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning works in unison with another technology, Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection. Essentially, this pairing of technologies monitors the road to determine when a front-facing collision is likely. If it is, it will alert you of this possible accident and can automatically brake the SUV, if you fail to react.

Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert gives you an alert when another vehicle is in your blind spot when you’re moving along the highway.

Finally, the Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go can maintain your position behind another vehicle on the highway by accelerating or decelerating as necessary.
