NEW 2022 Mazda CX-5



A new nameplate is coming to the Mazda lineup next year in the form of the 2023 CX-50 SUV, which will take on compact crossover rivals such as the Hyundai Tucson, the Nissan Rogue, and the Toyota RAV4. The CX-50 will be available with either a naturally-aspirated 187-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder or a turbocharged version of that engine making 250 horsepower. All models will come with a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. A hybrid model is also in the works and it will use a powertrain from Toyota. The CX-50 shares a platform with the subcompact CX-30 crossover and the Mazda 3 compact car, so we expect athletic handling. Although it’s barely larger than the existing CX-5 SUV, the CX-50 wears more rugged styling elements, which is a departure from Mazda’s more refined designs elsewhere in the lineup.

What’s New for 2022?

The CX-50 is expected to go on sale sometime in mid-2022 as a 2023 model. Mazda says that it will be sold alongside the slightly smaller CX-5, but we think the 5 will eventually be phased out leaving the 50 as the brand’s compact SUV entrant.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

All models will come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder but the one to get will be the more powerful turbocharged variant offering 250 horsepower. The base non-turbo offering will make just 186 hp. A six-speed automatic is standard, as is all-wheel drive, and Mazda will no doubt be baking-in crisp handling to the CX-50 so that it carries on the company’s tradition of offering affordable, fun-to-drive vehicles. A hybrid model will join the lineup later on with a powertrain sourced from Toyota. We expect it to be the one found in the RAV4 Hybrid, which is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with two electric motors good for a combined 219 horsepower. When we get a chance to test-drive the CX-50 we’ll update this story with driving impressions and test results.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Like the CX-5 and CX-30 crossovers, the CX-50 will offer space for five passengers in two rows of seats. Inside, large square dashboard vents give the 50 a slightly more truckish look than the smaller CX-30, but we can see a familiar 8.8-inch infotainment display sprouting from the dashboard. When Mazda releases more information about the CX-50’s interior and infotainment features, we’ll update this story with details.

As more information becomes available, we’ll update this story with more details about:

  •  Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
  •  Infotainment and Connectivity
  •  Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
  •  Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

    • I love auto lux! They put me in my dream car and the absolute best price! I truly cannot believe the wonderful deal I got! Zorik was so patient and helpful and kindly answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. This is the ONLY way to get a car! It literally took me 20 min to return my previous lease, sign paperwork, and hop in my new wheels. I\'ll never go anywhere else. Auto Lux will always have me as a customer!!! Thanks So much Zorik!

And he answered each with details and explanation. I was looking for proper color and he did his best to find it! And found! I really enjoy my new car. Thank you, guys!Ivan A
    • Six months ago we dealt with Auto Lux Sales and Leasing Company. Last time we got Toyota Prius and are very happy with the auto and the leasing requirements. This time, the focus of our attention was Chevrolet cruse. On the right date we came for the auto but on the last moment sales Manager, showed us an incredible option: Chevrolet Trax, at this moment the only car available. And it was just the color we wanted. Eventually we got this automobile. Thank you Auto Lux !!! For $145 per month, without down payment ,for 24 months, automobile in LT package !Roman G
