The 2018 Mazda CX-5 is a fantastic choice for the increasingly popular compact SUV segment, with its athletic design, excellent performance, spacious and sophisticated interior, and many advanced safety features. The CX-5 is offered in three grades: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. See what each trim has to offer in this 2018 Mazda CX-5 trim-level comparison. All Mazda CX-5 models are powered by the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, which produces 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to the SKYACTIV®-DRIVE 6-speed automatic transmission.

All CX-5 models also come standard with the handling-enhancing G-Vectoring Control system, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Smart City Brake Support, and the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system. Each CX-5 trim offers buyers the choice of either Front-Wheel Drive or the optional i-ACTIV All-Wheel Drive®. Considering that the base-level CX-5 Sport offers all of these features and has a starting price of only $24,150 MSRP, it is the most high-value choice for the CX-5 grades.


Moving up the trim lineup, the CX-5 Touring has a starting price of $26,215 MSRP. The Touring builds off of the Sport with standard Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers, Automatic On/Off Headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, and the full i-ACTIVSENSE® suite, which includes driver assistance technologies like Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Lane-Keep Assist and High Beam Control.
