2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Snow Driving, Design and Interior. In its 2012 debut, CX-5 helped introduce the world to Mazda’s KODO-Soul of Motion design ethos and SKYACTIV Technology that would lay a path for Mazda vehicles to come. Since then, CX-5 has seen continuous improvements, including an all-new redesign in 2017. Now for 2019, it takes its next key step with a high-quality interior befitting a new top-tier Signature trim level, the refinement of the powertrain lineup with the addition of the turbocharged SKYACTIV-2.5T engine and an enhanced focus on the chassis featuring the latest technologies with G-Vectoring Control Plus.
Prices for the 2019 CX-5 start $200 higher than before for the base Sport model, at $25,345. The new top trim levels that now come with a turbocharged 2.5-liter engine—Grand Touring Reserve and Signature—are significantly more expensive, ranging into the high-$30,000s.
The CX-5 is adding a new, more luxurious trim level and an optional turbocharged four-cylinder engine, along with several new convenience features and a revised chassis that now includes Mazda’s updated G-Vectoring Control Plus.
The new engine is the biggest change, and it’s the same turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder found in the Mazda CX-9 three-row crossover and the Mazda 6 mid-size sedan. In the CX-5, it makes 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque (that’s if you use premium fuel; as with those other models, Mazda quotes a lower output of 227 hp on regular gasoline). It’ll be available on Grand Touring Reserve and Signature models paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. The base naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine carries over for Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring models without any changes and offers front-wheel drive as standard an all-wheel drive as a $1400 option.
Handling enhancements are thanks to the updated G-Vectoring Control Plus system. We’ve detailed the standard system’s benefits before, but the “Plus” moniker signifies a new feature that applies braking to the outside front wheel when the driver straightens the wheel which, according to Mazda, improves stability. Mazda also says it has retuned the suspension for a smoother ride and changed the steering geometry.
Now sitting at the top of the CX-5 lineup is the Signature trim level, which adds all manner of luxurious appointments including brown leather upholstery, extra bits of wood and chrome trim inside, ambient lighting, a black headliner, and a frameless rearview mirror. Newly available features also come with this trim, including a 360-degree camera view and front and rear parking sensors. The CX-5 Signature also has its own darker wheel finish and badging.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard on CX-5 Touring and above trims. Pricing for 2019 CX-5 models is as follows:
Grand Touring, $31,040
Grand Touring Reserve, $35,865
The new turbo engine, meanwhile, gets EPA ratings of 24 mpg combined, 22 city, and 27 highway, two to three mpg lower than the naturally aspirated AWD model.
