2019 Mazda CX-5 Springfield
When it comes to sharp styling and sporty performance, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 delivers. With its stellar handling and outstanding build quality, it truly stands out in its segment. You can get this head-turning crossover in five distinct trim levels: Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature. The first three trims get standard front-wheel drive (all-wheel drive is an option), with their power coming from a 187 horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims come standard with all-wheel drive and have a turbocharged engine that churns 250 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Comfort and Convenience
The base Sport trim comes with standard push-button ignition, 40/20/40-split reclining rear seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Touring trim adds keyless entry, simulated-leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear climate vents, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats. An optional Touring Preferred Package will load this trim with a sunroof, a power liftgate, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Stepping up to the Grand Touring gets the contents of the Touring’s optional package as standard equipment, plus heated side mirrors, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable passenger seat, and driver-seat memory functions. It’s also eligible for the GT Premium package, which adds power-folding mirrors, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a windshield wiper de-icer. With the Grand Touring Reserve trim, all of those features come standard, and the Signature trim steps up the luxury element by including ambient interior lighting, premium leather upholstery, and wood trim accents.
Right out of the gate, the Sport trim comes very nicely equipped with low-speed forward collision warning and mitigation as well as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. If you add the optional Sport i-Activsense Package, though, you’ll also get a full selection of driver aids including automatic headlights, automatic high beams, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, upgraded forward collision warning and mitigation with pedestrian detection, and automatic windshield wipers. These driver-assist features all come standard across the remaining trims to provide drivers with the utmost confidence.
Standard Technology Features
Technology with the Sport trim includes an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth hands-free capability, a four-speaker sound system, and two USB ports. The Touring trim’s system adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with two additional speakers and another pair of USB ports. With the Touring Preferred package mentioned above, the audio system is upgraded to a premium 10-speaker Bose. The Grand Touring also gets the Bose system as standard, along with an upgraded driver information display, navigation system, and satellite radio. These also get bundled in with the Grand Touring Reserve, while the Signature rounds out the selection of standard technology with a surround-view camera system plus front and rear parking sensors.
