The 2016 Mazda CX-5 Interior Offers Lots of Space and Features

September 3rd, 2015 by

The 2016 Mazda CX-5 is one of the hottest small crossover SUVs on the market this year, and it owes much of its success to its sumptuous interior. You’ll get comfortable, roomy seating with plenty of configurable cargo space that’s easy to get your gear in and out of, as well as great infotainment and comfort features that will have you feeling like you’re being pampered. Keep reading to see what the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is really like.


The 2016 Mazda CX-5 has room for five passengers. The front seat boasts a driver’s seat that’s height-adjustable on the base 2016 Mazda CX-5 Sport trim and adds six-way power adjustment to the driver’s seat on the 2016 Mazda CX-5  Touring trim level. You’ll get upgraded cloth upholstery on this trim level as well. Upgrade to the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring level, and you’ll luxuriate in the heated front seats as well as the comfortable leather upholstery. The cushions are firm and supportive, providing plenty of comfort on long trips. There’s lots of legroom in the backseat, too, and the spacious cabin will fit even adults easily without much crowding.

Cargo Space

The rear bench of the 2016 Mazda CX-5 comes with a 60/40 split fold on the base Sport trim, and a 40/20/40 split fold on the Touring trim. Both configurations provide a new folding mechanism which allows you to lower the seat bottom before the seatback folds on top, creating a load floor that’s nearly flat. This means that you’ll get 64.8 cubic feet of space with the rear bench completely folded down, a very impressive cargo hold for a five-passenger vehicle. Even with the seats folded up, you’ll get a highly competitive 34.1 cubic feet of luggage space–certainly enough for a small vacation or large shopping trip.


The interior of the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is designed to be functional and modern. The materials are high in quality and simply designed, with plenty of soft touch surfaces and accents of piano black or tasteful metal. The gauges sport white lettering on a black background for a fully integrated style look.

The infotainment system sports an optional nine-speaker Bose Audio system, and you can get Bluetooth connectivity with a Mazda Connect package that features streaming radio and audio system voice controls, as well as satellite radio. There’s also a seven-inch touchscreen with an intuitive multifunction control knob.
