2022 CX-5 2.5 Turbo

The Mazda CX-5 is the practical small SUV for those who love to drive!

The CX-5’s combination of a near-luxury interior, great handling balance, and the practicality of a small SUV put it near the top of its class. Kelley Blue Book’s preferred model is the 2022 Mazda CX-5 2.5 S Preferred. The CX-5 is available in seven different trim levels and one special edition but the CX-5 2.5 S Preferred is the most popular because it is fun to drive and provides near-luxury features at a reasonable price.

It carries a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine making 187 horsepower, which gets 24 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. Mazda offers a more powerful, 256-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder on more expensive models. CX-5 models get standard all-wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission, which Mazda remapped for a sportier feel.

The 2022 CX-5 also carries a full suite of modern driver safety aids, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist. The popular 2.5 S Preferred adds luxury touches like leather-trimmed seats, dual-zone climate control, a power sliding moonroof, and a power liftgate. It gets a 6-speaker sound system rather than the four speakers of the base model.
