Vehicle Overview

Introduced last year, the CX-5 is Mazda's entry in the small-crossover segment. With five seats and front- or all-wheel drive, it's one of the few small crossovers to offer a manual transmission. Trim levels are Sport, Touring and Grand Touring, and the CX-5 competes with the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4. New for 2014
A more powerful 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine powers Touring and Grand Touring trim levels. The base Sport still uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

New available features include Pandora internet radio integration and a system that can display and read incoming text messages from a compatible smartphone as well as reply with a preset response. The CX-5 can also have Mazda's Smart City Brake Support system for the first time, which is designed to avoid or lessen the severity of a low-speed collision by automatically applying the brakes if the driver fails to do so.
The first vehicle to adopt Mazda's "Kodo" design language from 2010's Shinari concept, the CX-5 takes the brand's now-signature smiling grille and shapes it into a five-point scowl. Dual tailpipes, a raked rear window and a prominent roof spoiler distinguish the rear. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 17-inch alloy wheels; 19-inch alloy wheels optional
  • Body-colored side mirrors with integrated turn signals; heated side mirrors optional
  • Optional adaptive bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Optional fog lights
  • Optional rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Optional power moonroof

The CX-5's simple dashboard has white backlit gauges and a vertical panel housing the center controls. The steering wheel has tilt and telescoping adjustments, as well as redundant audio controls.

The backseat folds with releases in the seatbacks and cargo area. An optional 40/20/40-split folding seat allows the center section to fold for narrow cargo. Cargo room behind the second row totals 34.1 cubic feet, with roughly 65 cubic feet of maximum space with the seats folded. Interior features include:

  • Standard cloth upholstery; heated leather-trimmed seats optional
  • Standard air conditioning; dual-zone automatic air conditioning optional
  • CD stereo with MP3 jack and USB port; Bose premium stereo optional
  • Cruise control 
  • Push-button start
  • Optional 5.8-inch touch-screen
  • Optional Bluetooth connectivity with streaming audio capability
  • Optional TomTom-based built-in navigation system

Under the Hood
The CX-5's base engine is Mazda's SkyActiv 2.0-liter four-cylinder, which also goes in the Mazda3. A new SkyActiv 2.5-liter four-cylinder is optional. Mechanical features include:

  • 155-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder makes 150 pounds-feet of torque
  • 184-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder makes 185 pounds-feet of torque
  • Engines use regular gas
  • Six-speed manual transmission (2.0-liter only) or six-speed automatic
  • Front- or all-wheel drive

Safety features include:

  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Traction control
  • Optional backup camera
  • Optional blind spot warning system
  • Optional Smart City Brake Support
