Not only does the entire Mazda CX-5 lineup offer all-wheel drive for 2019, but the top two trims, namely the Grand Touring Reserve and the Signature, both get all-wheel drive as a standard feature.
Mazda all-wheel-drive systems are always-on systems that dynamically adjust power between the front and rear to optimize for both traction and efficiency as the situation requires. If you are worried about driving through another Wisconsin winter, all-wheel drive in a Mazda CX-5 will be your best friend.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 not only comes with an impressive 2.5-liter engine standard that can provide up to 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque, but the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims both come with a 2.5-liter turbo engine standard.
This 2.5-liter turbo engine can provide up to 250 horsepower but in the torque department, it can provide up to 310 pound-feet of torque. These engines are impressive no matter which 2.5-liter option you end up with.
Towing capacity comes down to design, and one thing that stands out in the Mazda CX-5 design is the automatic transmission. Automatic transmissions are tough, and they’ve been standard equipment on powerful trucks and SUVs for many years.
The continuously variable transmission or CVT isn’t the same. With a relatively new design and expensive components that are prone to wearing out and failing prematurely, the automatic transmission is what we trust.
