Learn about the Mazda CX-5


Though only in its second generation, the Mazda CX-5 is already one of the Japanese manufacturer's best sellers. With options for diesel engines, a comfortable and spacious interior and impressive towing capacity, it’s not hard to see why this compact crossover SUV is so popular. A range of engine sizes up to 2.5 L—turbocharged on the most recent model—along with the option between manual and automatic transmission on most vehicles.
