- mazda has released pricing and other info on the updated 2022 cx-5.
- it starts at $27,125, a $580 increase, and now comes standard with all-wheel drive.
- the optional turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four engine now makes 256 hp, an increase of 6 hp.
despite adding all-wheel drive as standard equipment and benefiting from numerous updates for 2022, the mazda cx-5's base price doesn't rise much for the new model year. it now starts at $27,125, a $580 increase, and most 2022 models are actually a bit cheaper than equivalent 2021 cx-5 awd models; all-wheel drive was previously a $1400 option on most versions of this compact crossover.
the cx-5's trim levels are rearranged, as the previous sport, touring, and grand touring monikers are gone. the base model is now the cx-5 2.5 s, and various packages including select ($29,125), preferred ($30,385), premium ($33,535), and premium plus ($35,175) add increasing levels of equipment. the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four with 187 hp is the base engine, while the turbocharged version of that engine starts off with the $36,510 cx-5 2.5 turbo model. that turbo engine, by the way, gets a slight power bump and now makes 6 more horsepower for a total of 256 hp. that's when running on premium fuel, as mazda still quotes the same 227 hp output on regular fuel, and torque is unchanged.
the loaded 2022 mazda cx-5 2.5 turbo signature starts at $38,630, which is $50 less than last year's signature model. the carbon edition, which has a unique color scheme, continues on and starts at $31,505 but is no longer available with the turbocharged engine.
mazda says the 2022 cx-5 will go on sale this winter, but it isn't yet available to build on the company's online configurator.
