2022 MAZDA CX-5 vs 2021 MAZDA CX-5

Serving Troy, MI

In 2017, Mazda introduced the second generation of the beautiful Mazda CX-5 to eager SUV shoppers. Additional improvements in recent years have elevated the many updates that were made at that time. However, as you get to know more about the Mazda CX-5 and prepare to make your selection, you may be interested to learn about the differences between the 2021 Mazda CX-5 and the 2022 version. What do the latest versions of the Mazda CX-5 crossover hold in store for you?


In 2021 and 2022, the Mazda CX-5 is offered in seven trim levels with two powertrains. Most of the trims have a six-speed automatic transmission paired with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. The pair delivers 187 horsepower to you. Upper trim levels are equipped with a turbocharged variant of the 2.5-liter engine, and the result is the production of 227 horsepower. While most trim levels for 2021 have front-wheel drive, and you can upgrade to all-wheel drive. However, the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature options for both years are equipped with standard all-wheel drive. Meanwhile, every new 2022 Mazda CX-5 comes standard with all-wheel drive for the first time ever.


When you compare the 2021 Mazda CX-5 to the 2022 version, you will find that the 2022 has been restyled on the outside to be even more appealing. While the Mazda CX-5 continues to show off Mazda’s graceful body language, both the front and rear end have been updated. Up front, there’s a new signature wing that extends outward, and the mesh surface of the front grille has been changed to a more three-dimensional textured surface. You’ll also discover there are new aluminum alloy wheels for 2022. The headlights and tail lights both now feature a pair of rectangular LED lights that are horizontally spaced as well.


The 2021 and 2022 Mazda CX-5 crossovers are well-equipped throughout the trim lines. For both years, lower trims have equipment like adaptive cruise control, a rear cross-traffic detector, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision mitigation, two USB ports, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a push-button ignition, and more. Other trims in the lineup may have a Bose 10-speaker sound system, driver’s memory functions, paddle shifters, a heads-up display, ambient interior lights, a surround-view camera, a navigation system, parking sensors, wood accents, and leather upholstery.
