Few vehicles on the road can combine performance, luxury, and affordability better than the Mazda CX-5, and the new 2022 model year is no exception. This sub-compact SUV regularly tops the automotive industry’s most esteemed ‘top pick’ lists, including a spot on the Car and Driver’s 2022 Editors’ Choice list, and garners nothing but 5-star consumer reviews. So what makes the Mazda CX-5 such a standout choice in a sea of SUVs? Let’s dive into a few of the features that help make the CX-5 a nationwide bestseller and favorite among Danvers drivers.

The Mazda CX-5: Get More Luxury for Less

Plenty of SUVs offer the usual lineup of engine sizes, safety features, and general specs, but Mazda goes above and beyond in one very important way: affordable luxury. After all, who doesn’t want to feel as though they’ve stepped into a Bentley without having to pay the Bentley price tag?

The CX-5 prides itself on having an elevated, yet capable, design that meets the needs of just about any driver, including families, students, couples, retirees, and just about everyone in between. From the supportive armrests to the sculpted steering wheel right down to the responsive accelerator pedal, every piece of the 2022 CX-5 was designed with ergonomics and comfort in mind. A spacious interior, versatile seating, height-adjustable power lift gate, user-friendly and seamless infotainment experience, and premium materials throughout add to the luxurious feel and function of this compact SUV. Modern technology rounds out the CX-5 experience, including a windshield-projected intelligent driving display and a custom-built 10-speaker Bose audio system.

“The biggest competitors to the CX-5 (are) the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Nissan Rogue. With the Toyota RAV4, you have to pay more money for more features whereas, in the Mazda, a lot of options come standard depending on the trim. The RAV4’s interior also just feels cheap and not as nice as the Mazda’s. The Honda CR-V is just boring compared to the CX-5 and the infotainment is way too basic, and in my opinion, the CR-V looks weird. The Nissan Rogue is alright but it just isn’t as elegant as the CX-5, but it is better than the RAV4 and the CR-V. The VW Tiguan is a little pricey and its seats are uncomfortable for distances over 4+ hours, they’re stiff and not that configurable. Overall, the CX-5 stands out in its class. It is elegant and classy compared to its competitors. The reliability is outstanding and the Mazda brand actually placed 2nd in most reliable cars of 2021, outdoing Toyota who placed in 3rd most reliable.” – Kelley Blue Book Reviews

The Quietest Ride Ever… Literally.

Whether you’re trying to lull the baby to sleep, chat with your partner, catch up on a podcast, or simply steal a few minutes of peace and quiet during your busy day, the 2022 CX-5 has you covered. Mazda embarked on a unique project (which you can read more about here) to reduce interior noise levels to the lowest in the industry. The challenging project required a major overhaul of the CX-5 and its major components to tackle noise caused by the transmission, tires, and exterior environment. But the results were successful, and the 2022 CX-5 offers a smooth, quiet, and serene driving experience that’s unrivaled by its competitors. Now that’s what we call innovation that puts the driver first!

So how do you improve on such a perfectly engineered vehicle? Mazda continues to impress by pushing the boundaries of what it means to be the “best,” both inside and out.

The all-new 2022 Mazda CX-5 is sporting a redesigned 3D grille, sleeker body contouring, and sporty new LED headlights. Changes to the transmission and suspension as a result of the above-mentioned sound-dampening project also led to an even smoother ride, plus responsiveness and handling that makes the CX-5 one of the most fun SUVs to drive on the entire east coast. All trims now come with standard all-wheel-drive and adjustable driving settings so your CX-5 can adapt to changing MA weather and terrain conditions. Drivers can choose between two very capable engines, but the Turbocharged 4-cylinder delivers the most pep with a beefy 256 horsepower.

“There’s not a single cheap-feeling trim piece in the CX-5. All materials, from the available leather upholstery to the buttons and controls, feel expensive. The CX-5 is impressive from the moment you lay eyes on the expressive, sharklike nose. The good vibes continue when you take a seat inside and see the beautifully constructed cabin that puts all other vehicles in this class to shame. Few crossovers offer a sense of adventure, but you get it with the CX-5.”Edmunds
