Engineered with Soul.

The 2020 CX-5 strengthens the connection between vehicle and driver. Mazda designers and engineers carefully consider every element of the vehicle’s makeup to ensure that the CX-5 outperforms expectations and elevates the experience of driving.

Skyactiv-G 2.5 T Engine with Dynamic Pressure Turbo

Driving Can Be Powerful.

A turbocharged engine that’s equal parts powerful, fuel efficient and intuitive. The Skyactiv-G 2.5 T Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine is defined by its horsepower and best-in-class torque, which provide responsive acceleration, agile handling, and an unforgettable driving experience.

Remarkable Fuel Economy

Remarkable Fuel Economy

Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology regulates combustion temperature and prevents knocking, resulting in improved fuel efficiency.

Best-in-class Torque

By supplying exhaust gas to the turbine more efficiently, the engine is able to produce a linear response for impressive torque.

G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus)

Car and Driver as One.

G-Vectoring Control Plus enhances the feeling of connection between vehicle and driver with improvements to the suspension and braking system. Working behind the scenes, GVC Plus adjusts engine torque and shifts vehicle weight to subtly refine your steering and braking, resulting in a smoother ride.

Improved Steering

Improved Steering

GVC Plus responds to slight steering adjustments made by drivers reacting to imperfections in the road, reducing the amount of corrections and creating a more consistent drive. Suspension improvements deliver linear response and better control while also enhancing passenger comfort.

Precise Control

Precise Control

By subtly modulating throttle, GVC Plus actively enhances vehicle stability 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.

Kodo "Soul of Motion" Design

An Innovative Approach to Timeless Design.

Every curve and contour of the 2020 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.

The fully equipped 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. Available rear heated seats and front ventilated seats, standard USB ports and available air vents create a more enjoyable ride for both the driver and passengers.

Peace and Quiet

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.

i-Activ AWD

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.

Essentially Predictive

Essentially Predictive

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.

Exceptionally Fuel Efficient

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.


Connect on a Higher Level

The 2020 CX-5 has a significantly upgraded infotainment system that allows you focus on the road ahead while staying connected to the world around you.

Effortless Connectivity

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.

Sirius XM® Services
