Mazda has released full details and specs on the 2022 CX-5, and it’s a lot more value-packed than we thought

Just a few months after its global reveal, Mazda USA has officially released every single detail we need to know about the 2022 CX-5, including pricing, powertrain choices, and features across its entire lineup.

As a recap, the Mazda CX-5 has been facelifted for the 2022 model year. The most noticeable changes were made to the car’s front and rear ends. Adopting the latest ethos of Mazda’s Kodo design language, the CX-5 comes with a new grille, squintier LED headlights and taillights, a new tailgate design, and a new set of alloy wheels.

While the interior looks relatively unchanged, Mazda has given the [art192878] new seats that promote a more comfortable and natural driving position. Underneath the skin, the structure has been made more rigid, while the suspension has been retuned for better ride comfort. Additionally, the standard six-speed automatic has been calibrated to be more responsive.

The range kicks off with the CX-5 2.5 S for a modest $25,900. While this represents a $530 increase over the previous base model CX-5, the mere fact that all-wheel drive (AWD) is now standard—which used to be a $1,400 optional extra—means you actually save $870 this year when getting this variant.
