Mazda’s popular sport crossover SUV is a relatively new addition to the Japanese automaker’s lineup, having debuted just a few years back in 2013. The CX-5 was the first vehicle in Mazda’s lineup to feature their signature KODO - Soul of Motion Design language, which first debuted on a concept vehicle in 2011.
The Mazda CX-5 had another important first for the automaker, and was the first vehicle in the Mazda lineup to feature the full suite of Skyactiv Technology, which were released back in 2012. The CX-5 shares a platform with the Mazda3 and Mazda6, but is classified as a compact crossover SUV.
All new for 2016, the Mazda CX-5 has a long list of new features, and is available in three different trim levels. The 2016 Mazda CX-5 will immediately turn heads with its stylish exterior that works with the vehicle, to deliver a more efficient and aerodynamic ride. The CX-5 features more interior room than ever before, and is miles ahead of the competition when it comes to passenger and cargo volume.
No other vehicle in its segment is quite like the 2016 Mazda CX-5.
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 comes with a longer list of standard features than vehicles in years past.

The 2016 Mazda CX-5 was designed with a purpose - to bring a family friendly compact SUV to the market, that achieves impressive fuel economy. The Mazda design team succeeded, bringing the highly efficient 2016 CX-5 to the American public. The CX-5 gets an EPA-estimated 35 miles per gallon on the highway, surpoasses most of its competitors.
This excellence in fuel economy is achieved through the implementation of Mazda’s Skyactiv-G powered engine, as well as its unique Kodo “Soul of Motion” design language.
The new design language takes on the stance of a predatory animal, stalking its prey. It captures aggression, power, and poise, all in one eye-catching visual. Each curve seen on the exterior of the CX-5 was carefully planned to help the SUV slip through the wind, with minimal resistance, and greater stability. This marriage between form and function works in perfect unison on the all-new 2016 Mazda CX-5, and will not only turn heads, but will also help save money at the pump.
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 features enough seating for five passengers, and plenty of room for everyone, and all of their gear. The CX-5 has a passenger volume of 103.8 cubic feet, with plenty of legroom, headroom, and shoulder room to go around.
The SUV also features a cargo volume of 34.8 cubic feet with the backseat in use, and up to 64.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the back seat folded down. The Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson don’t even come close to offering that amount of interior space - which is one more reason that the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is a great vehicle choice for busy families on the go.
