2016.5 Mazda CX-5 Adds More Standard Features

Just in time for Christmas, Mazda has announced pricing and packaging for the 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 compact crossover, adding value and reducing complexity in CX-5’s trim level structure.

New for the mid-model year, a backup camera is now standard on all trim levels equipped with Mazda’s SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic transmission. CX-5 Touring models gain standard navigation and heated front seats. CX-5 Grand Touring models also add navigation as standard equipment.

“The added content in 2016.5 CX-5 reflects our customers’ tastes toward premium features in a compelling, fun-to-drive, stylish crossover,” said Robert Davis, Senior VP of U.S. Operations, MNAO. “CX-5 buyers are educated, upwardly mobile, active-lifestyle individuals. With these updates, we aim to provide them with an even greater ownership experience.”

Previously, CX-5’s backup camera was part of the Rear View Camera Package on the CX-5 Sport trim level. Navigation was available in the CX-5 Touring and Grand Touring Technology Packages.

As with the 2016 CX-5, the entry-level Sport model comes standard with a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine that makes 155 horsepower. It is paired with a SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. CX-5 Sport models equipped with Mazda’s six-speed automatic transmission come with a more powerful SKYACTIV-G 2.5 engine, MAZDA CONNECT infotainment and a seven-inch color monitor with Commander control knob.

In addition to the CX-5 Sport models equipped with an automatic transmission, CX-5 Touring and Grand Touring models feature Mazda’s SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic transmission and come with a 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G engine.

All trim levels are available with standard front-wheel drive or available predictive i-ACTIV all-wheel drive that uses 27 sensors to read outside weather and temperature conditions up to 200 times per second to adjust how torque is distributed.
