A white Mazda CX-5 Signature on an empty city street

Let's Simplify Your Vehicle Search!

Searching for a 2022 Mazda CX-5 in or around Longwood Florida, but unsure which trim level is going to be the best fit for your lifestyle? Well, to help you sort through all that new information, we've put together this in-depth trim comparison and model overview. 

We'll do our best to provide all the information you need to find the package (as Mazda now calls them) that will strike a balance between your needs and budget. 

Let's jump right in and talk about what comes standard:


With the 2022 Mazda CX-5, Mazda has refreshed the CX-5 and elevated their best selling compact SUV yet again! The exterior refresh includes:

  • A re-sculpted fascia 
  • A new front grille design
  • New headlights and tail lights 
  • And new aluminum-alloy wheel options
Across all the trims, the overall design remains largely the same. Wheel size, fascia colors, and a few accents change between trims, but that sleek, sexy CX-5 look carries over to all trims.

New for 2022

All CX-5 trims come equipped with i-Activ AWD. This predictive AWD system increases stability and control without sacrificing fuel efficiency. The difference in average MPG between front wheel drive and all-wheel drive systems is only about one mile-per-gallon.

In addition, all CX-5s come with Mazda’s proprietary and proven 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift and sport mode for improved driving dynamics. You won’t find a CVT transmission anywhere in the Mazda lineup. This equates to a quicker, smoother acceleration and a "sports car" like driving experience.

Other standard features include:
  • Mazda’s responsive and efficient skyactiv 2.5L inline-4 producing 187 horsepower.
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control (This is Mazda’s adaptive cruise-control technology that lets you set your speed and the distance from the vehicle in front of you.)
  • Blindspot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert (so you don’t crash into your neighbors on the highway)
  • Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning (also to help you stay in your lane and not crash into your neighbors)
  • Smart brake support with collision warning (a sophisticated emergency braking system)
  • Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection
  • Back up camera
  • And Mazda Connected Services, which is an app based technology that lets you start and stop the engine, lock and unlock doors, check your fuel level, oil life, and more, all from your phone.

Alright, let’s talk about the refreshed 2.5 S


If you're familiar with previous years of this latest generation CX-5, you may know this as the SPORT trim. This year Mazda dropped the sport moniker for all models but the MX-5 Miata. 

In addition to all of the aforementioned tech and safety features, the 2.5 S gives you:
  • 17" alloy wheels
  • LED Headlights with auto on/off
  • Daytime running lights
  • High beam control
  • Automatic Rain Sensing wipers
  • Power side mirrors
  • A 10.25" full color display
  • Dual front USB audio inputs
  • Apple Carplay and android auto
  • A 4-speaker sound system
  • Cloth seats 
  • Keyless entry
  • Push button start
  • And this snazzy little AWD badge
So, even at its base trim, the CX-5 has A LOT to offer. But we're just getting started… 

STARTS AT $25,900

Next up is the 2.5 S Select. 


Again, this trim goes by a new name, but is closest to the previous year's TOURING trim.

The CX-5 Touring provides everything from the Sport, but adds a host of creature comforts and conveniences, like:

  • Tinted rear windows
  • 6-way power driver's seat (as opposed to Sport's manual seat adjustments)
  • Leatherette seats with Lux Suede Inserts
  • Heated front seats
  • Rear A/C vents
  • 6-speaker sound system
  • Dual rear USB charging ports
  • Mazda advanced keyless entry
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
STARTS AT $27,900

Next on our list is the 2.5 S Preferred


This newly named trim is most similar to the TOURING PREFERRED PACKAGE from previous years. 

This trim gives you everything from the Select, but kicks up the comfort and convenience with features like:
  • Auto-dimming rear-view mirror with Homelink (for opening garage doors)
  • Power sliding-glass moonroof
  • Optional black leather or silk beige leatherette seats
  • And Rear power liftgate with programmable height adjustment 
STARTS AT $29,600

Next up, the hugely popular 2.5 S Carbon Edition


This attention-grabbing trim features everything from the preferred package, but comes exclusively in Mazda's Polymetal Gray paint and features 19" wheels, blacked out exterior accents, black interior and door panel trim, and the option of black or red leather seats.

STARTS AT $30,720

And now onto the 2.5 S Premium!


The Premium trim is quite similar to the GRAND TOURING from last year, but it levels up the comfort and sophistication, yet again, with these premium features:
  • 19" aluminum alloy 
  • LED daytime running lights
  • LED combination tail lights
  • Adaptive Front-lighting System
  • Body-colored heated power side mirrors
  • Paddle shifters
  • Bose 10-speaker surround sound system with Centerpoint 2 and audio pilot 2
  • 7" LCD Meter Display
  • The option of Black or parchment leather seats
  • Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) (Sport & Offroad Modes)
  • And a 3-month trial of XM Sirius Satellite Radio
STARTS AT $32,310

Next on our list is the 2.5 S Premium Plus.


Premium Plus gives you everything from the Premium trim, but includes these enhanced comfort features:
  • Heated rear seats
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Windshield-projected Active Driving Display
  • Windshield wiper de-icer
  • Automatic power folding side mirrors
STARTS AT $33,950

And that rounds out the naturally aspirated CX-5 options  - next up the 2.5 Turbo!


The 2.5 Turbo gives you everything from the Premium Plus, but the most obvious addition is that dynamic pressure turbo. The turbo boosts the power from 187hp to 227 hp and 310 lb/ft of torque with regular fuel and 256 hp and 320 lb/ft of torque with 91 octane and above. 

It also gets you:
  • Black leather seats with red stitching
  • Front grille with Gloss Black finish
  • Black lower bumper trim
  • Black side rocker molding
  • Black wheel arches
  • Black Signature Wing
  • Black heated power side mirrors 
  • Turbo and AWD badges
  • Wireless phone charger
STARTS AT $36,400

This blend of aggressive styling and power make for a truly standout SUV. But this next and final trim Mazda's designers pulled out all of the stops.


This top trim gets all of the features of the others, including the turbo, but is taken to the next level by lush add-ons like:
  • 19" aluminum alloy wheels in a bright silver finish
  • Body-color lower bumper, rocker molding, and wheel arches
  • Capturra Brown nappa leather-trimmed seat
  • Genuine layered wood accents throughout the interior
  • Unique steering wheel design
  • Black headliner
  • Auto-dimming frameless mirror
  • Mazda navigation system
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • 360º view monitor 
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Driver attention alert
  • Rear smart city brake support 
  • And Traffic Jam Assist
STARTS AT $38,650


Bottom line: The CX-5 is Mazda’s top seller for good reason. From its driver-centric layout and refined driving experience, to the host of tech and safety features that come standard — you get a lot of value at any trim level.

Plus, the CX-5 is a true winner when it comes to safety. Not only has it received the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ every year since 2014, but in 2021 it was the only small SUV to receive the top “good” rating in new, tougher side crash tests.

  • Additionally, all CX-5 models come with Mazda’s:
  • 3-year / 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty
  • 5-year / 60,000-mile limited powertrain warranty
  • And 3-years or 36,000-miles of 24/7 roadside assistance!
