What to Expect From a Used Mazda CX-5


CPO Mazda Inventory CPO Mazda Inventory

You’ll find no shortage of used Mazda CX-5 models available, with two distinct generations:

  • First Generation: 2012 – 2016.5
  • Second-Generation: 2017 – Present

Used models run the gamut through various years, trim levels, options packages, and powertrain setups, so the shrewd driver takes the time to learn the differences. Best of all is that most of our used Mazda CX-5 models are Certified Pre-Owned Mazda vehicles!

First Generation: 2012–2016.5

Produced as 2013 to 2016.5 models, the original Mazda CX-5 replaced both the Mazda Tribute and the Mazda CX-7.

It offered:

  • Three Trim Levels: Mazda CX-5 Sport, Mazda CX-5 Touring, and Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring.
  • Two Engine Options: Originally available only with a 2.0L four-cylinder that produced 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque, the first-generation Mazda CX-5 eventually gave drivers the option of a 2.5L four-cylinder that produced 184 hp and 185 lb-ft.
  • Excellent Standard Features: Including 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, iPod/USB audio interface, cruise control, and full power accessories.

Available features covered GPS navigation, adaptive xenon headlights, heated seats, and a premium nine-speaker Bose sound system with satellite radio.

Critics praised the Mazda CX-5 for factors that have since become its staple attractions, including athletic handling, excellent safety scores, and surprisingly strong efficiency scores for an SUV so spacious inside and potent across the roads of Plainfield, Joliet, and Aurora.

Second Generation: 2017-Present

The second-generation Mazda CX-5 retained the impressive size of the original while revising the exterior styling and adding features.

Set to feature the first Mazda diesel ever sold in North America, it’s also available with:

  • New “Soul Red Crystal” Body Color
  • New Remote Controlled Powered Tailgate
  • Standard 7-Inch Touchscreen Display

Safety scores remain strong — the 2017 Mazda CX-5 earned a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS and includes Low-Speed Collision Warning with Automatic Braking.

Other driver-assistance technologies that are available include Mazda Radar Dynamic Cruise Control, Smart City Brake Support, an Adaptive Front-Lighting System, and Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring, among other things.
