A Closer Look at the 2018 Mazda CX-5


Finding a beautiful and luxurious crossover SUV doesn’t have to mean that you’ll need to break the bank, thanks to the superb 2018 Mazda CX-5. The latest model carries over a lot of the fantastic updates that the previous version introduced while adding some enticing new standard features that we know will attract buyers in the Virginia Beach, VA area looking for a crossover they can be proud to drive.


New for the 2018 model year this Mazda crossover gets updates including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Other changes include a new cylinder-deactivation technology which works to improve fuel economy overall. It works by shutting down the two outer cylinders of the engine while at cruising speeds to maximize efficiency. 


While the vehicle is efficient, it’s also a work of art. It looks and feels like a luxury vehicle thanks to a distinguished exterior coupled with a quiet and lush cabin. There are a total of three trim levels available: the Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. All-wheel drive is optional, but front-wheel drive is standard. Each model comes equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.


Notable features include a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth®, and USB ports. For safety, there’s a low-speed forward collision warning and mitigation system as well as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.


More features like automatic high-beams, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist are available through the Sport i-ACTIVSENSE® package, or as standard features on the higher trims.
