New for 2019

The highlight for 2019 is the addition of a new 2.5-liter turbo-four to the options list. Two new trim levels, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature, grace the top end and come standard with the turbo four and all-wheel drive. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity finally make an appearance.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The CX-5 is Mazda's midsize crossover, slotted above the wee CX-3 and below the capacious CX-9.

2019 CX-5 Sport: The CX-5 includes 17-inch aluminum wheels, cloth seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with four speakers and HD Radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and tilt/telescoping steering column.

2019 CX-5 Touring: The Touring adds automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leatherette seats, heated front seats, power driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity key, rear air conditioning vents, a six-speaker audio system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity.

2019 CX-5 Grand Touring: Opt for this trim level to add 19-inch aluminum wheels, auto-dimming heated exterior mirrors, power rear liftgate, power sunroof, 7.0-inch multifunction display, memory for driver's seat, leather seats, satellite navigation, power passenger's seat, and a 10-speaker Bose audio system with SiriusXM radio.

2019 CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve: This trim adds a turbocharged engine, auto-folding exterior mirrors, windshield wiper deicer, head-up display, heated steering wheel and rear seats, and ventilated front seats.

2019 CX-5 Signature: The top trim contains dark silver 19-inch aluminum wheels, Nappa leather seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink, wood trim, and LED interior lighting.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The base engine in the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is a 2.5-liter I-4 producing 187 hp and 186 lb-ft. connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive versions score 25/31 mpg city highway, while all-wheel drive models net 24/30 mpg. Grand Touring and Signature models are powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged I-4 making 227 hp on 87 octane and 250 hp on 93 octane fuel, and 310 lb-ft, exclusively all-wheel drive through a six-speed automatic transmission, with a fuel economy rating of 22/27 mpg.

Safety

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 is rated a 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick+, as well as receiving a front crash prevention designation of Superior by fully collisions both in the 12-mph low-speed and 25-mph high-speed autobrake tests when equipped with tech available on the Touring and Grand Touring trims. The 2019 Mazda CX-5 received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars).

All CX-5s come standard with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking. Touring models and up add automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, and automatic brake assist. The Signature trim adds a surround-view camera system plus front and rear parking sensors.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The Mazda CX-5 has room for five, with front/rear legroom measuring at 41.0/39.6 inches, respectively. Cargo space behind the rear seats measures at 30.9 cubic feet, and 59.6 cubic feet with both rear seats folded down.

Technology

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Sport features a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with four speakers and HD radio. Speaker count increases to six in the Touring, and all other trim models feature a 10-speaker Bose sound system. The Mazda Connect system uses a 4G LTE modem for internet radio integration. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are standard on Touring models and up.

What We Think

In our First Test of the 2019 Mazda CX-5, we praised the extra punch offered by the turbo engine, even if it came at the penalty of poorer fuel economy. "To be fair," we said, "the CX-5 2.5T AWD's 22/27 mpg city/highway is competitive with the Chevrolet Equinox 2.0T AWD's 22/28 mpg and the Jeep Cherokee Latitude AWD's 21/29 mpg." And from an interior packaging perspective, the CX-5 falls short when compared to the Honda CR-V, which leads the class in practicality and ergonomics. It comes down to where style and substance intersect with your needs. We concluded, "Feel secure with its stellar safety scores, take pride in its stylish curves, and smile every time you can take advantage of its swift acceleration."
