What kind of car is the 2022 Mazda CX-5? What does it compare to?

The 2022 Mazda CX-5 is a five-seat compact crossover SUV with more spirited handling but tighter proportions than the Toyota RAV4, VW Tiguan, and Subaru Forester.

Is the 2022 Mazda CX-5 a good car?

Review continues below

The CX-5 eschews big and bold design flair for clean lines and confident curves. It handles well and comes well equipped, but the rear seats lean to the smaller side and the infotainment system is an exercise in frustration. It earns a TCC Rating of 6.7 out of 10.

What’s new for the 2022 Mazda CX-5?

All-wheel drive comes standard on the CX-5 on all other Mazda crossover SUVs. 

The 2022 CX-5 wears new ends, new LED headlight designs, and new alloy wheel designs. It enhances the compact crossover’s appeal as one of the most attractive in the class, and that carries over inside to the clean horizontal layout of the dash. 

Mazda tweaked the 6-speed automatic to be more responsive, made the frame more rigid and stiffened the dampers on the front strut and multi-link rear suspension, but the compact crossover still has some lean in turns that’s endemic to higher-riding vehicles. Precise steering and taut handling better match the 227-hp turbo-4 than the overworked 187-hp 2.5-liter inline-4.

The CX-5’s alluring design proves that fashion comes as a sacrifice. It’s narrow inside, though the front seat riders shouldn’t notice with supportive frames and plush cushions to bolster sporty drives or road trips. Available wood trim and nappa leather contrast Mazda’s black-on-black base approach. Three seat belts in the back suggest three people can fit but they won’t like it. The 60/40-split rear seats serve a better purpose to expand cargo room. 

The CX-5 aces crash tests and Mazda equips it with automatic emergency braking to avoid crashes where possible. 

How much does the 2022 Mazda CX-5 cost?

Trim and price changes shake up the order this year, with S Select and S Preferred packages replacing the Touring trim; Turbo models replace the Grand Touring. 

The base Sport costs $27,125, including $1,225 for destination. It comes with a 10.3-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but the screen skips touching for a control knob. It might be easier to spin a roulette wheel and land on the desired number instead of your desired radio station. 

We prefer the S Preferred for $30,385 with its leather upholstery, power front seats, power liftgate, and sunroof. The turbo-4 is limited to the top of the lineup, peaking with the Turbo Signature for $39,875. 

Where is the 2022 Mazda CX-5 made?

In Hiroshima, Japan.
