2021 Mazda CX-5 Fuel Efficient SUV
 

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 is sleek, sporty, and spacious. But did you know that this Mazda crossover SUV is also just as fuel-efficient? Believe it or not, thanks in large part to a Skyactiv®-G engine, the Mazda CX-5 gas mpg specs are right in line with if not more impressive than the competition. Read on to learn more or contact us at Cox Mazda with questions.



2021 MAZDA CX-5 Engines and MPG Ratings

A Skyactiv®-G 2.5L four-cylinder engine is the standard engine in the new Mazda CX-5, and its plentiful 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque help you go further in Sarasota without needlessly wasting gas. Sport, Touring, Carbon Edition, and Grand Touring trims feature this engine. 

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve, Carbon Edition Turbo, and Mazda CX-5 Signature, meanwhile, can be upgraded with a Skyactiv®-G 2.5T four-cylinder that makes up to 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque with premium fuel. 

Looking for extra capability during inclement weather or rough road conditions? Though it may decrease the Mazda CX-5 mpg specs slightly, i-ACTIV AWD® is available on the Grand Touring and Signature trims.

Here are the EPA-estimated MPG ratings by engine and drivetrain for entry-level 2021 Mazda CX-5 Sport models:

  • 187-hp SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L four-cylinder with FWD: Up to 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway
  • 187-hp SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L four-cylinder with i-ACTIV AWD®: Up to 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway

Looking to upgrade to a Mazda CX-5 Carbon Edition Turbo? You’ll still get a fantastic 23 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, even with the bigger engine, if you opt for FWD. Choose the same vehicle with AWD, and mileage drops to a still-respectable 22 mpg city and 27 mpg highway – the same mileage you’ll get in a Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve or Signature model, which both have AWD equipped as standard.

SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 boasts standard SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. This system shifts the vehicle’s weight while cornering and tweaks how power is delivered to the wheels for a smoother drive and better handling. It may seem subtle — but after becoming accustomed to this feature on your Tampa trips, you’ll never go back to another vehicle brand.

Drive Selection

The Mazda CX-5 Drive Selection mode helps you pick a selection that meets your driving needs in-the-moment. Engage Sport mode for faster throttle response to help you merge into traffic, change lanes, or overtake other cars on the freeway. Disengage sport mode, and you’ll drive more efficiently, saving gas.
