The 2019 Mazda CX-5 is a compact SUV. The 2019 Mazda CX-5 is part of a generation that debuted for the 2017 model. For 2018, Mazda added standard blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert, and a leather-wrapped monitor. The 2019 CX-5 is the first to offer the four-cylinder turbocharged Mazda 2.5 liter engine that brings up to 250 horsepower, depending on the type of fuel you use. Other new options for 2019 include Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a 360-degree parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, and ventilated front seats.
Although there are some new options for 2019, the list of standard features is largely unchanged. Mazda also introduced the Grand Touring Reserve and Trims Signature for 2019. In addition, a new turbo-diesel power plant joined the 2019 engine list.
2019 Mazda CX-5 Interior
There is upholstery for up to five people in the CX-5. The first line has comfortable and supportive seats and has a good amount of space for passengers. The back row is a little bit stricter but can accommodate longer passengers. However, trying to fit three adults in the back seats can be a challenge. There are two sets of LATCH cutter bushes on the outer seats and an upper rope in the middle part. The Highway Safety Insurance Institute gives the 2019 CX-5 the second highest acceptable rating for ease of use.
The 2019 CX-5 features a sophisticated luxury cabin, enhanced by elements such as a commonly worn leather wheelchair and leather upholstery available to Nappa. The options include the front and rear seats, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, and adjustable power seats.
2019 Mazda CX-5 Features
The CX-5’s standard infotainment system has a 7-inch touchscreen, HD Radio, voice command, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and four loudspeakers. The features available include two additional USB ports, six speakers, a premium audio system, 10-speaker Bose, satellite radio and navigation. For 2019, Mazda added Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as options. The standard infotainment system has a tactile ability, which becomes disabled while you are driving. This leaves you with a rotary knob near the gear selector. It’s easy to use, but some reviewers complain that there is not enough physical control.
2019 Mazda CX-5 Engine
Although the four-cylinder CX-5 four-cylinder engine with 187 horsepower, 2.5 liters, has enough power for your daily ride, you can get things to a whole new level with the new CX-5 optional engine.

It produces 227 horsepower when fed with regular gasoline, and that rating increases to 250 horsepower premium gas. Both power plants come with a six-speed automatic transmission that makes good use of engine power. Another add-on for 2019 is a 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine, which produces 168 horsepower and 290 pounds during torque. When equipped with this engine, the CX-5 can pull up to 3500 pounds.
The four-cylinder base engine, the Mazda CX-5, gets 25 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. These estimates are about the average for the class. With the four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the CX-5 delivers a lower mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. CX-5 oil models earn 27 city mpg and 30 mpg freeways.
