Mazda's top-selling compact crossover SUV receives significant changes for 2022. The 2022 CX-5 receives an exterior refresh, now with a more refined look. On the performance front, the suspension has been reworked to improve ride and handling. The SUV also gets different drive mode settings. The transmission has also been retuned for quicker and smoother shifts. The Grand Touring Reserve trim has been renamed Turbo. Last but not the least, the seats have been redesigned for providing better comfort to occupants.
The pricing and release date of the 2022 CX-5 is yet to be revealed. Under the hood, the CX-5 gets two engine options- a 187-hp 2.5L inline-4 and a 227-hp 2.5L turbo-4 engine. Both these engines offer seamless power delivery. Inside, the CX-5's cabin is beautiful to look at and offers comfortable seating but falls short on the cargo area. The CX-5 also stays strong in the safety field by offering a long list of standard safety technologies. The CX-5 gets its rivalry from the Honda CR-V, the Subaru Forester, and the Hyundai Tucson.
