2019 Mazda CX-5 Review
Drivers looking for a crossover SUV that’s built for urban roads like those in Willow Grove, Willow Manor, and Glenside should consider the 2019 Mazda CX-5. It’s smaller than many SUVs on the road, but still offers more cargo space than a sedan.
At Sussman Mazda, we want to help you decide whether this vehicle is right for you. Keep reading this 2019 Mazda CX-5 review to learn about its engine specs, top-notch safety features, and connectivity options.
Two Engine Options
Pop the hood of the Mazda CX-5 Sport, Touring, or Grand Touring, and you’ll find a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L engine that offers up to 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. This fuel-efficient crossover SUV gets an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city/31 MPG highway1, so you can save more money at the pump.
The Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels upgrade the engine for more zest. With a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine, you’ll get an impressive 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. This engine is equipped with a Dynamic Pressure Turbo system, so you’ll get powerful acceleration as soon as you hit the gas pedal—there’s almost no turbo lag.
No matter what’s under the hood, the Mazda CX-5 can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. Whether you’re loading a light utility trailer with materials for your next DIY project or towing a small aluminum boat or jet ski to the river, this vehicle is more than capable.

The Mazda CX-5 was awarded the title of 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the highest accolade that agency gives. Plus, both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Mazda wants to make collisions a thing of the past, which is why it’s developed a suite of safety technologies called i-ACTIVSENSE®. This technology uses radars, cameras, and near-infrared lasers to help your car stay aware of its surroundings and, if necessary, offer braking support to help prevent a collision. Some of the active safety technologies standard in the Mazda CX-5 include:
- Smart City Brake Support helps prevent rear-end collisions in low-speed city driving
- Blind Spot Monitoring helps you safely merge lanes on the highway
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert detects vehicles approaching from the side when you’re backing up
Upgrading your Mazda CX-5 comes with even more driver-assist safety features, like a higher-speed Smart Brake Support as well as Lane Departure Warning with Lane-keep Assist.
Of course, you want to have fun on your drive, too—especially on longer trips. In the Mazda CX-5, you can enjoy everything the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System offers via the 7-inch full-color touchscreen display. In addition to broadcast and HD Radio™, this system has internet radio integration for Aha™, Pandora®, and Stitcher™.
You can also listen to audio from your connected mobile device, thanks to Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio capability. Upgrade to the Touring trim level or above to take that connectivity up a notch with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration.
