The 2021 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve, Carbon Edition Turbo, and Mazda CX-5 Signature, on the other hand, boast a SKYACTIVⓇ-G 2.5T four-cylinder engine that produces up to 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque with premium fuel.

Here’s what you can expect from the entry-level Mazda CX-5 Sport:

2021 Mazda CX-5 infotainment system
  • 187-hp SKYACTIVⓇ-G 2.5L four-cylinder with FWD: Up to 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway
  • 187-hp SKYACTIVⓇ-G 2.5L four-cylinder with i-ACTIV AWDⓇ: Up to 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway

Choose a Mazda CX-5 Carbon Edition Turbo, meanwhile, and you’ll still get a fantastic 23 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, even with the larger engine, when equipped with FWD. Choose the same vehicle with AWD, and mileage drops to a still-respectable 22 mpg city and 27 mpg highway — the same mileage you’ll get in a Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve or Signature model, which both boast standard AWD.

SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 offers standard SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. What does that mean? It means that as you drive the roads of Farmington to your favorite store or off to work in Espanola, your Mazda is continually adjusting power delivery and shifting weight while cornering, delivering a smoother, more composed ride. While the system is designed to work in the background, it provides undeniable agility to the new Mazda CX-5 that can’t be matched by other compact SUVs.

Drive Selection

All new Mazda CX-5 models boast a standard Drive Selection feature to help you set your vehicle’s handling preferences to your current mood. With just the flip of a switch, you can engage Sport mode, which will give you faster throttle response for merging, passing, and accelerating. Disengaging Sport Mode is just as easy, requiring only the flip of a switch once again to turn it off, resulting in sustained Mazda CX-5 mpg results.
