What's New for 2018 Mazda CX-5?
This recently revamped crossover enters 2018 with just a few minor changes. An upgraded engine provides enhanced fuel efficiency. Every 2018 Mazda CX-5 model is now appointed with a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob. The biggest news is new standard safety features across the lineup, including lane keep assistance, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring. In addition to these updates, the Grand Touring model has been discontinued for 2018.
Trims and Features
The Mazda CX-5 can comfortably accommodate up to five passengers. You'll have almost 31 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the rear seats down to access more than 56 cubic feet of space, plenty of room for a weekend getaway.
The base model of this SUV is the 2018 Mazda CX-5 Sport. It features a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, four-speaker stereo, two USB ports, push-button start, voice commands, and HD radio. Standard safety features include a rearview camera and low-speed automatic emergency braking; the latter is a rarity among competitors.
Upgrade to the Touring model for faux leather and suede upholstery, heated front seats, a six-speaker stereo, two-zone automatic climate control, two additional USB ports, proximity key entry, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring.
With the Grand Touring model, you'll enjoy additional comforts like real leather upholstery, satellite radio, adaptive headlights, and distinctive 19-inch wheels.
2018 Mazda CX-5 drivers will enjoy the power of 187 horses and 185 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the standard inline four, a diesel engine will be introduced toward the end of the model year. You'll get an EPA-estimated 25/31 city/highway miles per gallon with the front-wheel-drive CX-5 or 24/30 if you opt for the all-wheel-drive model. Reviewers tout this SUV's outstanding acceleration, smooth ride, and composed, athletic handling. All-wheel-drive models are equipped with vector control for even more precise steering.
In addition to the standard active safety features, the Mazda CX-5 is available with high-tech add-ons like a head-up display with traffic sign recognition, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Although safety scores for the new model year have not yet been reported, the nearly identical 2017 CX-5 received Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, earning the highest possible score in every crash test category.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Mazda CX-5 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Mazda CX-5 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
