Premium Vs. Turbo: Navigating the 2023 Mazda CX-5’s Trim Levels

The CX-50 is a new nameplate and stylish compact crossover with a rugged-looking exterior and a premium interior. Like every other Mazda, the new CX-50 guarantees agile handling and is available with a punchy turbocharged engine.

The 2023 CX-50 also provides a wide range of trims, so it’s best you have a proper look at these trims before leasing the CX-50. Here, we’ve compared the popular Premium and Turbo trims.


The all-new Mazda CX-50 comes in a whopping 10 ten trim levels and offers two healthy engine options. The Premium trim is part of the crossover’s mid-range trims and provides an extensive suite of impressive equipment and high-quality materials. It uses the base engine, a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder that pushes out 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. From a premium audio system to a panoramic roof, here are the key talking points of the 2023 Mazda CX-50 Premium.

  • A 12-speaker Bose surround sound system with Centerpoint and AudioPilot
  • Roof-mounted shark fin antenna
  • Rear power liftgate with programmable height adjustment
  • 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Half leatherette-trimmed seats
  • Heated front seats with 3-level adjustment
  • 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support
  • SiriusXM satellite radio with a 3-month trial subscription
  • Wireless phone charger
  • 2,000 pounds max towing capacity
  • Power sliding-glass panoramic moonroof with one-touch-open feature

With the base engine, the CX-50 Premium can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 7.9- 8.1 seconds. It also earns an EPA rating of 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.


The Turbo model is on level seven in the CX-50’s range of trim levels, and it unlocks a gutsier turbocharged variant of the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder. This time, the engine generates 256 max horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. The Turbo model also boasts improved towing capacity and faster acceleration time. Highlights of the 2023 Mazda CX-50 Turbo include.

  • LED combination taillights with signature lighting
  • Adaptive front-lighting system
  • Larger dual exhaust outlets with bright finish
  • 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels with Black Metallic and machine-cut finish
  • Paddle shifters
  • An 8-speaker audio system
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • 3,500 pounds max towing capacity

It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds and returns an EPA-rated 23 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.

Both models feature a responsive six-speed automatic transmission, standard all-wheel drive, and a nimble chassis that delivers an engaging driving experience.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
