Family vehicles--in particular, compact crossovers--aren't necessarily known for their attention to detail, but that's a trend the 2018 Mazda CX-5 happily shrugs off. In every corner of this CUV's appealing design, drivers from the Los Angeles area to Van Nuys and Hollywood can discover nuance and those premium results in equal measure--and enjoy that value at a completely accessible price.


As may behoove an automaker that defines itself on the substance of driving, the Mazda CX-5's sole petrol offering boasts more than a little "zoom-zoom." A 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G inline-four, it's rating of 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque can be sent to either the front, or all four wheels on any Sport, Touring, or Grand Touring model. Additionally, it's EPA-estimated city and highway figures of 24 mpg/30 mpg with AWD are class-topping, as is it's 2,000 lb. max tow rating. But when you're not worried about savings or a towed load, the precisely-delivered power and compliant steering will result in delight on any road.

Safety & Driver Assistance

Whether destined for person adventures or family duties, the Mazda CX-5 shines it's standard LED headlights on safety at every level. Every model comes with a rear view camera with cross traffic alert, an active "Smart City Brake Support" system, and blind-spot monitoring--features usually optional in this crossover's competitive set. Grand Touring models and higher can be equipped with the "i-ACTIVSENSE" safety suite, which turns those LED low and high-beam headlights fully automatic, and brings adaptive cruise control, lane-departure assist and warning, and more.


Every example of the Mazda CX-5 on our lot gets Mazda Connect infotainment standard, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and shift knob. That will represent a lot of value for many of our Alhambra and Pasadena drivers, but it gets even better! Leatherette and leather seating with available heating functions can be found on the next two trims, alongside navigation, rain-sensing wipers, and two rear-seat USB ports. The back row outboard positions can also be heated, and the standard 4-speaker audio system can be upgraded to a BOSE audio offering.

Personal jaunt or family function, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 will see you there with time to spare--and experiencing a whole lot of curb appeal in between! To discover what this new crossover has on tap, schedule a test drive by contacting our Mazda dealership in Glendale, CA at your convenience.
