The 2022 Mazda CX-5 is a compact crossover with ample space for a family. The Turbo, in particular, has a roomy interior with sporty red accents and stitching to match the trim details on the exterior.
There are some features in the 2022 model that is worth checking out.
Performance and Handling
The 250 horsepower CX-5 Turbo provides much quicker acceleration than the standard 4-cylinder engine. Both engines pair with a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Precise steering and composed cornering make for a decent cruise. Pavement imperfections are hardly noticeable and road noise is minimal. Braking is smooth without that jerking feel of a touchy brake pedal.
The 2022 CX-5 has two fuel economy ratings. The standard 2.5-liter engine is rated at 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The Turbo engine is rated at 22 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
The interior cabin features top-notch materials and a well-thought-out layout for a luxury feel. The CX-5 can hold nine carry-on suitcases behind its rear seats. There are also several nooks and cubbies in the cabin to stow phones, kid’s toys, and beverages. The center console has a deep front tray and a storage bin with a removable shelf.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Every CX-5 model boasts of a 10.3-inch infotainment display that is operated via a rotary controller and volume knob on the center console. It can also be operated through voice commands and buttons on the steering wheel. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. The CX-5 comes with Mazda Connected Services. This includes access to remote vehicle functions via a smartphone app and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity.
