This compact crossover has been around for just a couple of
years, so we probably won’t see bigger changes for the next
year. The 2020 Mazda CX-5 will most likely continue in the same
way. As you probably know, the recent update has brought a new
turbo engine to the offer. Considering that this carmaker
insists on pretty short production cycles, we probably won’t
see a typical facelift, especially if we consider that the
current model is already one of the prettiest in the class.
Most likely, the current version will carry on in the same way
until a complete redesign. Therefore, don’t expect any earlier
arrival of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 than usual. It should hit the
market sometime late in the year.
2020 Mazda CX-5 Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Mazda CX-5
definitely won’t suffer any important changes. The current
generation is on the market for just a couple of years and
there is no need for any modifications at the moment. It is
based on the company’s newest versions of the famous SkyActive
platform, which brings many benefits, especially in terms of
driving characteristics. There is probably no other compact
crossover among mainstream carmakers that offers such driving
Besides obviously amazing driving characteristics, this
crossover also offers plenty of style. Of course, it is based
on the company’s famous KODO design language, which insist on
sleek design solutions, which puts this crossover closer to the
premium segment. The result is probably the best-looking
exterior in the class. Of course, style always means a bit of a
sacrifice, especially when it comes to practicality. The CX-5
is no exception.
2020 Mazda CX-5 Interior
The interior completely follows the stylish exterior design.
This crossover features a pretty upscale cabin, which looks
pretty stylish and features lots of top-quality materials. Even
the most basic models come with things like leather-wrapped
steering wheel, while seats are available in Nappa leather.
Speaking of the seats, you can count on plenty of comforts at
the front, as well as on great ergonomics.
On the other side, rear seats are quite tight. As we already
mentioned, that’s the price you pay for the style. After all,
those who are searching for something super-practical will not
consider this one at all. Same goes for the cargo area. You can
count on around 30 cubic feet behind rear seats and 60 cubic
feet of overall cargo space.
2020 Mazda CX-5 Trim Levels
The only changes we could see in the 2020 Mazda CX-5 are new
standard features. Still, even these changes will be minimal
and the core will definitely remain the same, including the
trim level organization. Therefore, count on same trims in the
offer. Those are Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring
Reserve and Signature.
The base Sport model already comes with a long list of standard
equipment. You can count on things like 17-inch wheels, LED
headlights, leather-wrapped steering wheel, push-button start,
Bluetooth, 7-inch touchscreen and much more. In terms of
safety, you can count on systems like Low-speed forward
collision warning and mitigation and blind-spot monitoring with
rear cross-traffic alert.
The Touring trim adds a lot of interesting things and seems
like a version that offers the best balance between price and
quality. Some of the notable additions are keyless entry, a
power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate
control, simulated leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and
Android Auto etc.
If you want to get some visual upgrades, the Grand Touring
seems like a good choice. This one comes with bigger 19-inch
wheels, LED fog lights and leather upholstery. Also, there are
things like adaptive headlights, upgraded driver information
system, driver memory settings, power-adjustable passenger’s
seats, navigation etc.
Next in the line is the Grand Touring Reserve, which adds more
powerful engine, as well as things like a head-up display,
power-folding mirrors, ventilated front seats, heated rear
seats, a heated steering wheel etc.
Finally, there is the Signature trim, which adds things like
ambient cabin lighting, premium leather upholstery, wood trim
accents, a surround-view camera etc.
2020 Mazda CX-5 Engines
When it comes to powertrain, count on a choice of atmospheric
and turbo version of a familiar 2.5-liter engine. Base models
will be equipped with the atmospheric version, which is good
for about 187 horsepower.
On the other side, an optional turbo engine is good for about
227 horsepower. Still, the output can go up to 250 hp if you
use premium fuel. Both engines come paired with a 6-speed
2020 Mazda CX-5 Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come for the
2020 Mazda CX-5, we expect to see it on the market sometime
late in the year. Also, don’t expect changes in price. Base
models should go around 24.500 dollars.
