The 2019 Mazda CX-5 compact-crossover SUV has driving talent mixed with useful fuel economy, a well-equipped premium-quality cabin available at a reasonable price, and head-turning looks. This goes way beyond the “vehicle as appliance” approach adopted by so many rivals.
New Features and Revisions
The 2019 CX-5 adds a new range-topping trim level: Signature. It features leather, wood, chrome, ambient cabin lighting, and several other premium items. Smartphone integration for iPhones and Androids becomes available. A new engine propels the higher trims -- a turbocharged 2.5-liter unit making 250 horsepower. The torque vectoring by braking and suspension systems has also been refined.
