2013 Mazda CX-5 US Pricing Announced

Mazda CX 5 at 2013 Mazda CX 5 US Pricing Announced

Mazda put a price tag on its Skyactiv-enabled CX-5 crossover. It starts at $20,695.

So Mazda is once again offering fantastic value for money. As always, it’s a good-looking, well-built, feature-rich car for a fair price. Mazdas have always been great fun to drive as well. And that’s the thing we are still not sure of with the new Cx-5.

Mazda of course says the fun factor is, if anything, boosted in the new Skyactiv models. But the fact is they are tuned for economy rather than performance. This rather big crossover does 29 mpg combined. The SKYACTIV-G engine produces 155 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 150 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.
