Superior Performance

With this Mazda CX-5 review, we first wanted to see how this car performs. Examining the engine options and the various components of the new Mazda CX-5, you will see that this car boasts excellent handling with a fun driving experience.

The SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine provides the 2019 Mazda CX-5 with 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission gives you the ability to enjoy smooth acceleration as well as control over the shifting with manual shift. If you need that quick jolt in acceleration, switch over to Sport Mode so you can change lanes, merge on the highway, and make more maneuvers where you need the extra boost of power.

The technology of SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control Plus helps you handle any road and corner with confidence. You can also gain more power with the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T 4-cylinder engine. This turbo engine will be able to push out 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

Interior Space for You and Your Passengers

Like most vehicles in its class, the Mazda CX-5 lets you fit five passengers inside. Part of what separates it from the pack though and makes it one of the best midsize SUVs is how much room it gives to each passenger.  

Up front, you and your front passenger will get 39.7 inches of headroom and 41.0 inches of legroom. The rear passengers are provided with a very similar amount of room with 39.0 inches of headroom and 39.6 inches of legroom. A lot of other cars you will notice a big difference in rear passenger space compared to the front seats, but not the 2019 Mazda CX-5.

There is also 30.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. If you need more cargo room, simply fold the rear seatback down and get a maximum 59.6 cubic feet of cargo volume.
