The 2023 Mazda CX-50: A More Robust CX-5

The Mazda CX-50 takes some of the CX-5’s features and, like the CX-5, belongs to the popular compact SUV category. Will the Mazda CX-5 be discontinued? That’s not part of the plan: the CX-5 is more urban in nature, while the CX-50 fills in the adventurous aspect that some consumers have been missing.

So, the 2023 Mazda CX-50 will be designed for off-roading, and it’s built accordingly. That means it has a rugged build, but it also incorporates elements like off-road tires and square fenders. Moreover, it adds black to the fender and rocker panel surrounds and features a new lighting signature.

Its adventurous look is also evident in the presence of roof rails that can accommodate your outdoor gear, including kayaks or a tent!

Mazda CX-50: Two Engine Choices

Like the CX-5, the CX-50 offers two engines, including the standard 2.5L Skyactiv-G, which gives it 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. If you want more power, the GT version can get the turbocharged Skyactiv-G, which gives it up to 256 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque!

This turbocharged engine also allows it to boost towing capacity to 3,500 lbs; with the standard engine, you’ll be able to tow loads 2,000 lbs. In addition, the optional engine adds a towing mode to the Mi-Drive system. The drive mode selector also offers standard Sport, Off-Road and Normal modes.

All-wheel drive is standard on the SUV. This is the i-Activ predictive system, which gives you stable driving in all conditions thanks to its sensors. The G Plus vector control also contributes to the car’s stability and control.

Mazda CX-50 Interior: A Refined Interior

The Mazda CX-50 interior was designed for your comfort, but it also stands out for its refined look. Among the Mazda CX-50 reviews, Antoine Joubert (Le Guide de l’auto) particularly appreciated the interior:

The CX-50 interior is first and foremost a very luxurious cabin.

It offers excellent legroom, as well as a remarkably quiet ride. Plus, it offers several color options to suit your tastes. You can choose:

  • Black leatherette
  • Ashy ochre leatherette
  • Black leather
  • Terracotta leather with orange stitching

Natural shades are in the spotlight, as is the use of sustainable materials!

For extra comfort, the GT version even includes ventilated front seats in 3 settings as well as heated rear seats! Of course, the Mazda CX-50 Canada offers heated front seats as standard.

Of course, practicality is not forgotten: its trunk is 1,082 mm long and can accommodate 889 L of cargo. Lowering the seats frees up 1,595 L of cargo space.

  • Bluetooth steering wheel controls
  • SMS text messaging function

An optional navigation system makes your escapades even better. Other options like a 12-speaker Bose audio system and a wireless charging tray enhance your experience with the GT version!
