Mazda revealed the official pricing for the new 2017 Mazda CX-5, a car they claim occupies a “sweet spot” in the compact crossover segment. They do have a point, since the CX-5 offers everything you would want from a car of this type, plus that yummy Mazda driving feel and quality.
All of the makes the 2017 Mazda CX-5 good value at $24,045. Mind you, that is the starting price for the base Sport trim, which is actually very well equipped. You get 17-inch alloy wheels, black cloth-upholstered seats, cruise control, air conditioning, power windows, power mirrors, pushbutton starter, LED headlights, variable intermittent windshield wipers, carpeted floor mats, a 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat, Smart City Brake Support and power door locks, plus Mazda Connect infotainment with all the latest connectivity features.
The standard powertrain on all models is a SKYACTIV-G 2.5 engine with a six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission. i-ACTIV all-wheel drive is an optional extra you can order for all trim levels.
