Is the Mazda CX-5 Good for Off-Roads?

Yes, as with all of our other Mazda crossovers, the Mazda CX-5 takes on alternative terrains efficiently, especially with i-ACTIV® All-Wheel Drive (AWD). This intuitive drivetrain uses special sensors and works with many systems of the CX-5 to always deliver the best traction control on-time when the rains get heavy in Palatka, FL.

Can the Mazda CX-5 Tow a Boat?

It depends on the weight of the boat and its respective trailer. Through its standard 187 horsepower SKYACTIV® four-cylinder engine, and its available SKYACTIV®-D diesel powertrain, the Mazda CX-5 can tow up to 2,000 lbs. However, the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels offer a 250-horsepower SKYACTIV® model capable of towing up to 3,500 lbs. with i-ACTIV® AWD. As most motorboats tend to weigh around 2,500 lbs., you might find the 250-horsepower engine more preferable for towing.

Can the Mazda CX-5 be Flat Towed?

Yes, when equipped with standard front-wheel drive and placed in neutral gear. However, if your Mazda CX-5 has AWD, it should get towed with all four wheels off of the ground. You may also need to purchase additional equipment for safe flat towing, so we might not recommend it if you lease a Mazda.

Does the Mazda CX-5 Have Apple CarPlay®?

Yes! Apple CarPlay™ comes standard on most trims of the Mazda CX-5, with the exception of the base Sport, allowing you to seamlessly integrate your iPhone into the infotainment system.

How Much Does the Mazda CX-5 Weigh?

By itself, the Mazda CX-5 weighs 3,541 lbs. with front-wheel drive. However, with i-ACTIV® AWD equipment, the curb weight increases a bit to 3,679 lbs.

How Many Seats Does the Mazda CX-5 Have?

  The Mazda CX-5 seats up to five adults comfortably, with 41 and 39.6 inches of leg room between the first and second rows, respectively.

Does the Mazda CX-5 Have Adaptive Cruise Control?

Yes, all trim levels of the new Mazda CX-5 feature Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, as well as other i-ACTIVSENSE® driver-assist features like Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Advanced Smart City Brake Support with pedestrian detection. The Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims also provide front and rear parking sensors as well as a 360-degree View Monitor.

Does the Mazda CX-5 Have Android Auto™?

Yes, as with Apple CarPlay™, most trims of the Mazda CX-5 come compatible with Android phones through the Android Auto™ application. Bluetooth® comes standard on all trims, enabling you to access phone functions and music on your phone. As you cruise out to see friends in Middleburg, FL.
