2017 Mazda CX-5

Mazda fanatics anticipating the long-awaited release of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 need wait no longer—this model hit the market in March, and Cox Mazda has the scoop on everything you can expect with this crossover SUV’s dealership debut. From price to features and everything in between, we’ll inform you of all you need to know about the 2017 Mazda CX-5, and then we invite you to visit us to pick out your model in the trim and color of your liking.

What’s in Store

With a starting MSRP from $24,045, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 boasts an enhanced cabin and stylish new looks. It appears as a blend of the Mazda MX-5 Miata and the larger, three-row Mazda CX-9, specifically in that the CX-5 features slimmer headlights and taillights. Inside, you can expect an updated infotainment screen and a thinner steering wheel. Each trim level boasts its own highlights.

  • CX-5 Sport: For the introductory price, you’ll get the likes of a push-button start, the Mazda Connect infotainment system with a 7-inch color touchscreen and a Commander control, and Smart City Brake Support. You’ll also get a 40/20/40-split folding back seat for ultimate cabin customization.
  • CX-5 Touring: For $25,915 MSRP, the mid-level CX-5 model promises heated front seats, keyless entry, and driver assistance features like blind spot monitoring.
  • CX-5 Grand Touring: The top-of-the-line Grand Touring model includes leather upholstery, LED taillights, larger 19-inch wheels, and much more. This will cost you from $29,395.

Also important to note is that front-wheel drive is standard, but you can purchase all-wheel drive for an extra $1,300. And while there is a slight price bump from the 2016 model, you’ll get CX-5 trims that have more in store for you on the road.

What’s Ahead

Although the 2017 Mazda CX-5 runs on only one powertrain—a 2.5L 4-cylinder paired with a six-speed automatic transmission—there will be a 2.2L diesel engine available later in 2017, according to Mazda. This is especially noteworthy since last year’s model started off with a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder and a manual transmission, with an added cost for the 2.5L machine.
