With the 2024 Mazda CX-5, you’ll experience the height of elegance, sophistication, and desirability without the pain of a luxury price ticket. This outstanding crossover expertly combines modern design, cutting-edge technology, and top-notch craftsmanship in a way that will turn heads wherever you drive around Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, Long Beach, Hawthorne, or Inglewood. The CX-5 is a true standout model in the crowded crossover market, giving a driving experience that exceeds expectations thanks to its generous standard features and overall attention to detail.
Each model in the 2024 Mazda CX-5 portfolio is gorgeous, and there are plenty to pick from, with no fewer than eight trim levels available to suit various budgets. Even the least expensive model has 17-inch alloy wheels and a premium aesthetic, but only four exterior colors are available until you go higher. The Mazda CX-5 2.5 S Select is now the entry-level model for the lineup for 2024, and the range then includes the 2.5 S Preferred, 2.5 S Carbon Edition, 2.5 S Premium, 2.5 S Premium Plus, 2.5 Carbon Turbo, 2.5 Turbo Premium and the top-of-the-line 2.5 Turbo Signature.
The Mazda CX-5’s exterior design exemplifies subtle elegance that puts the competition to shame. There are no sharp angles or garish front grilles. Instead, all CX-5 models feature rounded edges, contemporary LED lighting, and a subtly modern look that falls far short of ever being divisive. There isn’t a CX-5 that doesn’t look stunning, yet different models can have their individual styles, depending on the exterior colour and wheels you select.
You won’t feel driven to participate in drag races with the 2024 Mazda CX-5. Simply put, it’s not that kind of car. However, the two engine options are perfect for the CX-5: a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 2.5-liter turbo-four. Because the engines are model-specific, you can only get the turbo-four with the 2.5 Turbo and 2.5 Turbo Signature trim levels. No matter the trim level or engine, all models include a standard six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive.
The standard engine’s 187 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque are unquestionably impressive. The 2024 Mazda CX-5, however, benefits significantly from the turbo-four’s excellent 256 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft of torque if your budget allows. Fuel economy ratings for non-turbo models are 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg for highway driving, but due to the increased output and performance of turbo models, ratings for those models reduce a little to a city rating of 22 mpg and 27 mpg on the highway.
Customers’ lives are sometimes a little bit easier when a base model is sold at a reduced price with fewer standard features to entice fleet buyers. Although the entry-level 2024 Mazda CX-5 model is pleasantly affordable, the standard features make it feel more like a mid-range vehicle than many rivals. All versions have a 10.25-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, so you don’t need to upgrade the trim level for the best infotainment. However, the infotainment system is improved to incorporate quality Bose audio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio if you upgrade to the 2.5 S Premium Plus or higher. The addition of wireless phone charging on turbo variants goes even further towards a genuine luxury feel.
The standard equipment for Turbo variants is excellent, including heated and cooled front seats, heated outboard rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and standard 19-inch alloy wheels. You can even enjoy Nappa leather upholstery, wood and chrome trim, ambient lighting, navigation, a surround-view camera system, and front and rear parking assist by upgrading to the range-topping 2.5 Turbo Signature.
The 2024 Mazda CX-5 teaches what can be achieved when an automaker, its designers, and engineers genuinely care about the vehicles they produce and what owners will feel like driving them. The CX-5 gets everything right, and it’s hard to pick any fault with this sensational vehicle.
