2023 Mazda CX-5: Small But Highly Spirited

The Compact SUV segment is filled with alluring options, but the CX-5’s impeccable driving verve and state-of-the-art interior help it stands out from the fierce competition.

A 2023 Mazda CX-5 lease deal guarantees a playful small crossover with a crisp chassis and enough pep to give you a sporty driving experience. Entry-level CX-5 models are powered by a naturally-aspirated 187-hp four-cylinder, while top models get the turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 256 horsepower. The CX-5 is unchanged for 2023.

Engine And Performance

The CX-5 comes with two powertrain options. The entry-level engine is a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine that makes 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. Top-tier turbo models are motivated by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that churns out 256 horses and 320 lb-ft of twist. Both engines pair with a precise six-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. Typical of Mazda lease deals, the CX-5 boast sublime handling, accurate steering response, and a hearty on-road performance. The compact Mazda delivers the sporty driving verve you can only find in pricier luxury or sports cars. With the turbocharged four-cylinder, the CX-5 can hit 60mph in a respectable 6.2 seconds.

Fuel Economy

EPA has given CX-5 models with the base 2.5-liter engine a rating of 24  mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Opting for the more powerful turbocharged engine drops the ratings to 22 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway.


Everything feels right inside the CX-5, from the build quality to the layout to the infotainment and controls. The Japanese automaker employed nothing other than quality materials and cutting-edge tech. Though the CX-5 falls short in terms of space, most shoppers won’t have any reason to complain. Standard features include a 10.25-inch infotainment, cloth-trimmed seats, a 4-speaker audio system, etc. Going for higher trims adds features like dual-zone automatic climate control, power sliding-glass moonroof, paddle shifters, Leather-trimmed heated and ventilated seats, a 10-speaker Bose sound system, etc.

Safety And Driver Assistance

The CX-5 gets a long list of standard safety and driver convenience features. The essential features are standard on the base trim, while the advanced tech is offered on higher trims. Highlights of the 2023 Mazda CX-5 include

  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert

  • Advanced smart city brake support with pedestrian detection
  • Smart brake support with collision warning
