The 2024 Mazda CX-5 is going on sale once again, this time, with additional changes and upgrades. Many people questioned this model after the release of the new CX-50 variant. However, nothing will happen as CX-5 SUV continues its journey. Surprisingly, the larger CX-50 does not offer significantly more cabin room than the CX-5.
Some reports are saying that this is the last production year for the nameplate. At the moment, nothing is official and everything you read is a rumor. Hopefully, Mazda will continue to offer this impressive model beyond 2024.
Mazda CX-5 Exterior Redesign
We anticipate no further significant adjustments because this is predicted to be the generation’s final manufacturing year. The 2024 Mazda CX-5 will continue to have a design that has been around for a while, and the general design will not change. One of the model’s primary selling advantages is that it still has a youthful, beautiful appearance.
The ride quality is another impressive thing about this crossover SUV. You won’t find the same amount of athleticism in other vehicles in this class as this crossover delivers. It’s also crucial to note that the AWD system will be standard, so expect even better ride quality and handling. Visually, the CX-5 model will gain a couple of new exterior colors and minor cosmetic upgrades.
Mazda has long been known for its beautiful interior design. From this perspective, the 2024 Mazda CX-5 will continue to deliver an upright interior with lots of high-tech amenities. The dashboard has a straightforward look that we appreciate, and it is made of high-quality materials. In addition to the large range of basic and optional equipment, we especially admire how well the sound absorption is done.
However, the interior room should be better, especially in the second row. On the other hand, the larger CX-50 model is not dramatically roomier than its smaller sibling. If you can ignore the interior room, Mazda CX-5 is a very premium crossover SUV with top safety ratings, a high level of comfort, and much more.
Standard AWD System
A 2.5-liter engine will power the 2024 Mazda CX-5. It produces almost 190 horsepower, which is more than enough for the base model. Still, we think the optional turbo-four engine is a much better choice. That one performs much better and produces 255 horsepower. The 6-speed automatic transmission that comes with both engines performs admirably.
All versions come standard with the AWD system, as we already said in the beginning. In terms of fuel efficiency, the base engine provides 24 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The optional drivetrain gets 23 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, respectively.
2024 Mazda CX-5 Price, Release Date
The price of the upcoming 2024 Mazda CX-5 will start at around $26,000, or slightly above that. The Japanese carmaker is yet to announce pricing details. Moreover, we are waiting to see the list of upgrades and more importantly, we are hoping that the 2024MY won’t be the last CX-5 model ever made.
