Engineered with soul.
The 2019 CX-5 has evolved to strengthen the connection between vehicle and driver. But this evolution didn’t happen overnight. Mazda designers and engineers painstakingly scrutinized every element of the previous model year, from the LED headlights, to the gauge cluster, to the stitching in the driver’s seat – ensuring that every detail of the CX-5 elevates the experience of driving.
Responsive and responsible.
The CX-5 is powerful, fuel efficient, and a pleasure to drive. Now, it’s also available with a diesel engine on the Signature model. The Skyactiv-D 2.2 L turbocharged diesel engine features a sequential dual turbocharger for a smooth and linear response from low to high engine speeds and greatly increased low- and high-end torque, while also meeting emissions regulations in North America. Providing you with a powerful, fuel-efficient, and responsible drive.
Exhaust Cleaning System
The exhaust cleaning system uses a rich post-combustion injection to convert nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and is especially efficient at cleaning low-temperature exhaust gases.
Natural Sound Frequency Control
The power of a diesel engine, with dampened knock noise. Our Natural Sound Frequency Control regulates injection and combustion timing in 0.1 ms increments to cancel out vibrations and reduce audible knock.
Redesigned Combustion Pocket
The profile of the piston top was optimized to prevent fire from clinging to the wall of the pocket and minimize energy loss by heat transfer to the wall.
Driving Can Be Powerful.
A turbocharged engine that is, all at once, powerful, fuel efficient and intuitive may sound impossible. But with persistence and passion, Mazda engineers created the Skyactiv-G 2.5 T▲ Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine. With outstanding horsepower and best-in-class torqueǂ, this engine provides responsive acceleration, agile handling, and an overall unforgettable driving experience.
Remarkable Fuel Economy
Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology regulates combustion temperature and prevents knocking, resulting in improved fuel efficiency.
Dynamic Pressure Turbo
While turbocharged engines are notorious for lag, our patented Dynamic Pressure Turbo gives you higher levels of power at lower levels of RPM with no lag, creating a uniquely smooth drive.
By supplying exhaust gas to the turbine more efficiently, the engine is able to produce a linear response for impressive torque.
Car and Driver as One
An advancement on the already groundbreaking and award-winning G-Vectoring Control, G-Vectoring Control Plus was formulated to enhance the feeling of connection between vehicle and driver with enhancements to suspension and braking system. Working behind the scenes, GVC Plus adjusts engine torque and shifts vehicle weight to refine the subtleties of your steering and braking. The result is a profoundly smoother ride for you and your passengers.
Imperfections in the road cause drivers to constantly correct their steering in order to follow their desired path. But GVC Plus responds to your intentions to lower the amount of necessary steering corrections and create a more consistent drive.
By subtly modulating the throttle, GVC Plus actively enhances the stability of the vehicle from the time a turn is initiated, to the moment it’s completed.
Applying a hint of braking to the outer tires while cornering allows for greater confidence when changing lanes and manoeuvring. Suspension improvements deliver a linear response and better control while also enhancing passenger comfort.
An Innovative Approach to Timeless Design.
Every curve and contour of the 2019 CX-5 is infused with the soul of its maker under the principles of our Kodo “Soul of Motion” Design. A marriage between timeless Japanese craftsmanship and groundbreaking innovation, the CX-5 is as much a pleasure to look at as it is to drive. But it’s not just about appearances; with intuitive functionality and striking agility, the CX-5 was designed to maximize driving enjoyment.
True Beauty Starts Within
The well-appointed interior of the CX-5 offers an available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat‡ and available automatic dual-zone climate controls‡‡ to make your drive as comfortable as possible. With available rear heated seats‡ and front ventilated seats,‡ standard USB ports and available air vents,‡‡ your passengers will love the ride as much as you do.
The CX-5 Signature Model
To take an already generously equipped vehicle to the next level, we gave it a 2.5 L turbocharged engine, Nappa leather-trimmed upholstery, Black interior roof lining, LED interior lighting, Abachi wood trimming and 19” alloy gunmetal wheels.
Peace and Quiet
We focused on creating a quieter ride by significantly reducing the transmission of noise generated by tires as well as wind – especially at highway speeds – so you can fully enjoy conversation, music and more.
A Flawlessly Flexible and Stable Ride.
i-Activ AWD▼ delivers a surefooted solution for Canada’s varied terrain and weather conditions. Using 27 sensors to monitor everything from outside temperature and windshield wipers, which are used for acceleration and braking patterns, i-Activ AWD not only forecasts when you’ll need better road grip, but also readies your CX-5 to deliver the traction you need at the precise moment you need it.
i-Activ AWD monitors driving conditions 200 times per second. Everything from steering angle and windshield wiper use to exterior temperature and braking patterns helps predict driving conditions.
A slight amount of torque is continuously transferred to the rear wheels to automatically deliver more traction at the precise moment it is needed.
Exceptionally Fuel Efficient
i-Activ AWD is one reason the CX-5 achieves outstanding fuel economy. By ensuring optimal distribution of torque and minimizing drivetrain energy loss, you’re only using fuel to power AWD when you need to.
At Mazda, we’re all about proactive safety measures that swing into action to alert you so that you can avoid a collision or lessen its impact. With many standard i-Activsense features, including Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) and Advanced Blind Sport Monitoring (ABS), our suite of safety technologies helps you stay in tune with your CX-5 and focus on the road ahead.
The CX-5 has the available feature of Pedestrian Detection. When Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) is paired with Smart Brake Support (SBS)†, the system can also detect pedestrians at speeds between 10 and 80 km/hr.
Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS)
Above 30 km/hr, the Distance Recognition Support System† measures the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead and recommends a comfortable following distance.
Traffic Sign Recognition system (TSR)
Traffic Sign Recognition system†† uses cameras to read road signs such as speed limit, do not enter and stop signs†††. The colour Active Driving Display shows this information so you can stay informed without taking your eyes off the road.
Lane-keep Assist System (LAS)
Rather than keeping the CX-5 centred between two lines, as some systems do, causing an unnatural “tug” on the steering wheel, LAS† takes driver intention into account, helping the CX-5 ease into turns and lane changes.
Stay connected to your music, messages, phone calls and emails on and off the road using Android Auto™. Connect to Apple Maps, Apple Music™ and Siri on your iPhone using Apple CarPlay™.
10-Speaker Bose® Premium Sound System
Custom-built for the CX-5, we worked with Bose® to devise a system that considered hundreds of factors, from cabin size and materials to seat positioning and the unique sound variances of today’s digital devices. The result is outstanding clarity, image and power.††
