2022 Mazda CX-5 Redesign & Changes
If you still remember, the CX-5 first generation was launched in 2012. Then, the second generation came out to the market in 2017. Starting from the second generation, people were impressed with an overhauled design and new technologies. Now, when the company produces the 2022 CX-5, you might hope for the same feeling for its look.
Although Mazda said this new CX-5 is all-new, it is actually quite similar when you look closer. The underpinnings are the same. However, some others say the bits and boobs are redesigned and seem different. They think that the 2022 model brings people to a new age and more mature in appearance.
Indeed, it has no major changes. The CX-5 for the 2017 model had received new features and trim levels. Those touches still feel fresh and still be a good choice in its class for now. You can see from the KODO design, which makes a harmonious feel. Also, the front grille shows you little points that lead directly to the headlight. Walking to the backside, it looks curved in silhouette and feels so aggressive.
Interior & Features
Different from the outside, inside the cabin is full of positive energy. The new Mazda CX-5 is really taking care of people in its class. Thus, the company makes all things inside come from excellent components and sophisticated technology. It is really a stand out SUV with all the innovations.
First, the improvement is from the clean dashboard design. If you are a simple and trendy person, then you will love this. After that, move a little bit closer, you can feel the comfortable seats with the best leather. Compared to the previous model, this new model cabin has higher quality materials.
Next, Mazda also improved the cargo capacity. To beat the rivals, Mazda doesn’t forget to make the rear seat more comfortable. To reach perfection, they upgraded the infotainment system and the safety. The screen is 7- and 8-inch touchscreen options, and you get the new digital instrument panel.
This 2022 Mazda can result in 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. But, actually, the base engine is producing 187 hp and 186 pound-feet of torque. Those engines come with the transmission of a six-speed automatic. As for your information, the standard motor comes with a front-wheel, while the turbocharged engine is with an all-wheel drive.
Another thing that makes people curious about the 2022 CX-5 is the hybrid system. Why is it so interesting? Please don’t get fooled with its look because you will be surprised with the SkyActiv-X 3.0 48V M Hybrid inside. What is that? It is a straight-six gasoline engine. Besides that, this car also exists with SkyActiv-D 3.3 as the straight-six turbo diesel.
How could that engine technology become so important? Of course, it means that you will feel the evolution of the 2.0-liter engine from the SkyActiv-X 3.0 liters. The company uses a Roots-type supercharger. So, you can maintain the air supply without having to face a delay response of a turbocharger. It is so pretty and makes the car so good to have.
Performance & Fuel Economy
As discussed before, the 2022 CX-5 model will be available in diesel, gasoline, and the SkyActiv-X forms. For your more information, the diesel model seems not coming to the US. Actually, there is no confirmation about how economical the car is until now. We’ve been trying to seek the leaks, but nothing mentions an exact thing about it.
However, people predict that the 3.3-liter oil burner is most interesting because each cylinder’s displacement must get 0.55 liter. While in Mazda 3, the 1.8-liter engine boasts 0.45 liters per cylinder.
If you are trying to compare with the 2021 model, then this is the view. The 2021 model was 25 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 28 mpg combined with the FWD and 24/30/26 AWD as the optional ones come with a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive on the Carbon Edition and standard on Grand Touring Reserve and Signature. The fuel economy was on 22/27/24.
