That standard horsepower for the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is impressive enough in its own regard, but what if we told you that the Mazda CX-5 had another engine option available?
Both engines are 2.5-liter 4-cylinder designs, but the top Signature trim and the Grand Touring Reserve trim below it adds a turbo to push the total horsepower up to 250 and the max torque up to 310 pound-feet. These high-power engines only come with AWD and still give you up to 27-highway mpg.
Most people are just starting to realize that Mazda is really an affordable luxury brand, and that is immediately apparent once you take a gander at the interior. Even the standard interior is impressive enough, but if you go all the way up to the top Signature trim, you will find a lot to drool over.
Not only does the Signature trim come with premium Nappa leather seats in a rich Caturra Brown color, but the Signature trim also adds LED interior lighting, genuine wood accents, and more.
In addition to being a luxurious brand, Mazda is a brand that cares about your safety. Of course you can find available features like a heads-up display, a 360-degree view monitor, traffic sign recognition, and adaptive cruise control, but the Mazda CX-5 also comes standard with a ton of high-tech safety features.
To start with, you get smart city brake support, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, hill launch assist, a reverse camera, dynamic stability control, and of course, LED headlights.
