Best-in-Class Performance

Feedback from Edmunds.com underline’s the Mazda CX-5’s untouchable performance: “Mazda’s penchant for handling prowess is alive and well in the CX-5. If your commute involves many twists or turns, you might not consider any other crossover.” They sum it up as “the best-handling small crossover,” and that reputation starts under the hood with a state-of-the-art 2.5L SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder capable of:

  • Up to 187 hp
  • Up to 186 lb-ft of torque

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 engine employs cylinder deactivation technology that shuts down two of its four cylinders during light driving conditions, such as when you’re cruising flat highway between Aurora and Joliet or travelling downhill in Plainfield. That’s part of why you’ll enjoy such strong efficiency scores.

Additional performance features include:

  • Power rack-and-pinion steering with variable assist
  • MacPherson front strut suspension with stabilizer bar
  • Rear multilink suspension with stabilizer bar

They unite to deliver a calm, controlled drive that still responds quickly to your commands.
