It’s hard to expect bigger changes just two years after the redesign, so this incredible crossover should continue in much the same way as the 2019 Mazda CX-5. The excellent crossover has been in production for about five years and is already considered one of the best models in the class. The original model was in production until this year, while the second generation arrived in November last year. With a new design and a lot of improvement, the second generation is even better. This model has many advantages.
Mazda CX-5 2019 Exterior
Preferably not. If the new Signature grade came to fruition, it would likely stand out from other models with unique wheels, extra exterior lighting towers and a more pleasant cabin decor; If this decor included real woodwork, it would be a real rarity in this segment. The changes included narrower headlights that accentuate the large, elegant grille. LED headlights became the norm all over the board, and the designers cleaned up the appearance of the tail and gave each model two exhaust outlets.
2019 Mazda 5 Interior
Inside, the dashboard and center console have received a welcome new look. All categories received a 7-inch tablet-style infotainment screen mounted at the top of the dashboard. Rather than a touch screen, its functions are governed by a console-mounted button, flanked by a few buttons. It’s a concept similar to the BMW iDrive, and in the Mazda, the system generally works well. Discrete radio preset buttons would be nice, just like Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, because currently, the only way to get GPS mapping is to use the standard on-board navigation system on the Grand Touring and optional on the Touring.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 seats emphasize comfort rather than comfort. Those wider frame could find bucket seats before a little confining. The design of the back seat can make you feel a little overwhelmed. This helps space for the legs, and the backrest is adjustable. Freight volume has slightly decreased to be a little below the class average as part of its 2017 refresh. There are 30.9 cubic feet behind the rear seat backs and 59.6 feet with these bent. Mazda is thoughtful enough to allow files to fold in a 40/20/40 configuration instead of the usual 60/40 split.
New Mazda CX-5 Engine
We kept the best until the end: a 2.2 liter diesel engine with more power. Right now, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv-D produces 175 HP and 420 Nm. However, using new pistons and a variable geometry turbocharger, it now delivers 190 hp and 450 Nm. Corresponding to the VW Tiguan on power but beating him on the couple.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 will probably arrive in late 2018. As there will be no more significant changes, we do not expect any price changes either. So the basic models should go around $ 26,000. Competition in this segment is difficult. However, this crossover is one of the best in its class, with Honda CR-V.
There are also models like Hyundai Tucson, Ford Escape, Chevrolet Equinox, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue and many others.
