PERFORMANCE
MAZDA CX-5

Mazda is known for their dedication to performance. From their smooth operating and handling to their hearty engines, the Mazda CX-50 and the Mazda CX-5 don’t fall very far from the tree. How do they match up? Find out below.

Thrilling Rides

Power your adventure in either the 2023 Mazda CX-50 or the 2023 Mazda CX-5. For example, in both models, you’ll find a standard Skyactiv®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.

Both also have Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission, complete with manual shift mode so you can control the gear changes on your own when desired.

Want to kick the drive up a notch with Sport mode? Customize your transmission to meet your needs for speed with either Mazda SUV.

What Do You Need to Tow?

If you’re looking to tow around something small, like a skiff for a lake, the 2,000-pound maximum towing capacity of the Mazda CX-5 when properly equipped might suit your needs. But if you’re looking for larger loads, like a travel trailer, then the Mazda CX-50 has you covered with a 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity when properly configured.
