2023 Mazda CX-50 | MAZDA NORTH AMERICAN OPERATIONS

All models feature a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine offering 187 hp. However, there is a more muscular turbo version that cranks out a healthy 256 hp. All trim levels come with a standard six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

The CX-50’s improved adventurous capabilities are attributable to its off-road drive mode that ingeniously uses the steering and traction control systems to keep the car on its intended path effortlessly. The 2023 CX-50 also has 8.3 or 8.6 inches of ground clearance (depending on the trim level), further enhancing off-road driving. 

Due to its enhanced offroad capabilities, the CX-50 is equally at home on the freeway as it is at a trailhead or campsite. When it comes to power, even the base non-turbo engine delivers ample punch. Whether you are on the road or in the rough, the new CX-50 provides an enjoyable driving experience and accurate steering.

Mazda’s first-ever panoramic moonroof

If you like marveling at the beauty of nature, you would certainly prefer a car with a panoramic sunroof. So, does the 2023 Mazda CX-50 have a panoramic sunroof? Yes, the interior of the 2023 CX-50 sports Mazda’s first-ever panoramic sunroof, but not on all trim levels. Only seven of the nine trim levels come standard with Mazda’s first-ever power-sliding panoramic moonroof with one-touch open and close.

According to Mazda USA, the one-touch open and close feature is meant to help drivers and passengers feel more connected with nature. If you want the Power-Sliding Panoramic Moonroof with your 2023 CX-50, you will have to get one of the following models: 

  • 2.5 S Preferred Plus – $32,690
  • 2.5 S Premium – $35,150
  • 2.5 S Premium Plus – $37,150
  • 2.5 Turbo – $37,150
  • 2.5 Turbo Meridian Edition – $39,950
  • 2.5 Turbo Premium – $40,300
  • 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus – $42,300

Other interior features of the Mazda CX-50

While specific features range depending on the trim level, the general vibe inside the 2023 Mazda CX-50 is discerningly upscale. Large square dashboard vents are arranged symmetrically around the steering wheel. When it comes to comfort, the new CX-50 does not disappoint. Both the front and rear seats are very cozy and supportive.

Regardless of model or package, every 2023 CX-50 is standard with space for five passengers in two rows of seats. Other standard interior features include:

  • Manual day/night rearview mirror
  • Push button start
  • Speed-sensitive power door locks with two-stage unlocking
  • Power windows with a one-touch down/up feature
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control with pollen filter (except the base trim 2.5 S)

The 2023 Mazda CX-50 is a new compact crossover that seats five passengers. It’s offered in nine trim levels. The new CX-50 comes with Mazda’s first-ever panoramic sunroof, but this interior feature is only available on specific models. Overall, the 2023 Mazda CX-50 is an excellent option for those looking for a sporty, trail-ready SUV crossover.
