Once you choose to make the Mazda CX-5 your next SUV for daily drives around Allentown, you will have a few important decisions to make. You will have to figure out which of the three trim levels is right for you. Then you will need to pick between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, which is an option for all trims.
Mazda CX-5 Sport
Sticking to the base CX-5 Sport trim will give you the standard 2-liter 4-cylinder engine with 155 horsepower. You can also upgrade to have the 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is standard on higher trims. Every single Mazda CX-5 comes with air conditioning, full power accessories, height adjustment for the driver, cruise control, a 60/40-split and folding rear seat, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Standard technology includes Bluetooth for audio and phone, four speakers, a USB/iPod interface, an auxiliary audio jack, and a CD player. In addition, the exterior has 17-inch wheels.
When you upgrade to the 2.5-liter engine and automatic transmission for the CX-5 Sport, you automatically get a 7-inch touchscreen, HD radio, a multifunction controller knob, Pandora internet radio, SMS text reading, voice controls for the audio system, and automatic crash notification. Depending on when your CX-5 was made, the rearview camera may also be standard.
Mazda CX-5 Touring
The Mazda CX-5 Touring trim builds on the Sport with the 2.5-liter engine. It adds convenience via the keyless entry and ignition and fog lights. Safety is enhanced thanks to the rear cross-traffic and blind spot warning systems. The rear seat splits 40/20/40 and still folds, and there is upgraded upholstery. In addition, the driver’s seat gets 6-way power, and the passenger seat gets height adjustment. This trim also comes standard with six speakers and leather on the steering wheel.
You can customize the CX-5 Touring with the Moonroof and Bose Audio package, giving you nine speakers of Bose sound and a sunroof.
CX-5 Grand Touring
At the top of the lineup, the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring has all of the features mentioned above. It also has heated mirrors, automatic wipers, automatic headlights, and 19-inch wheels. Inside, it gets dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and satellite radio. There is also a Technology Package available for the Touring and Grand Touring trims. It adds Smart City Brake Support, navigation, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, LED lights, and the automatic wipers and headlights. The Grand Touring also offers the i-ActiveSense package for advanced safety features.
