The Mazda CX-5: A Decade as One of BC, Canada's Best Compact SUVs

The Mazda CX-5 burst onto the scene in 2011 at the Geneva, Frankfurt, and Tokyo Motor Shows. It quickly gained attention because of its car-like driving dynamics and responsive 4-cylinder SkyActiv engine. 

A 2016 upgrade brought an entry-level luxury look, additional safety features, and, in subsequent years, a turbocharged engine. The Mazda CX-5 has plenty of recognition because of these traits (it has been one of Car and Drivers' 10 Best multiple times, earning recognition for its segment-defining performance). 

Here is a closer look at the history of the Mazda CX-5, which has spent the past decade becoming one of BC, Canada's best compact SUVs.

The Mazda CX-5 Brings Efficiency to BC, Canada

Early Mazda CX-5 models made headlines for their practicality and adaptability. For 2013, the compact SUV brought a 2.0L 4-cylinder to BC. It had a fuel economy rating of 6.7 L/100 km (hwy). Features like electronically-assisted power steering, a lightweight and rigid body, and optimised suspension helped the vehicle's responsiveness and got the most out of its 155 hp motor. The following year, however, a 184 hp 2.5L I-4 added more muscle to the already impressive drivetrain.

The Mazda CX-5 Brings Luxury Design to BC, Canada

The Mazda CX-5 received a design upgrade for 2017. It included a flat, inset grille and sleek crossover body. These elements gave it a more mature and upscale feel, while available heated leather seats and premium sound system options added to the high-end allure. The SUV has retained these qualities up to the current model year, adding features like a sunroof, signature LED lighting, and noise dampening components.

Mazda CX-5 Brings Tech Features in BC, Canada

The Mazda CX-5 complements its looks, practicality, and drivability with a range of tech features that provide greater steering. As the second generation developed, i-Activ AWD and G-Vectoring Control Plus improved the already stellar handling. These components use sensors to detect road conditions and the steering angle and adjust torque as needed. The newer models also increased the effectiveness of its accident avoidance systems, adding City Smart Brake Support and other active safety tools.

The Mazda CX-5: New Engines in BC, Canada

The Mazda CX-5 took the latest step in its evolution in 2019 by adding a 2.5L turbocharged engine to its lineup. Currently available on GT and Signature trims (and 2021's 100th Anniversary Edition), this 4-cylinder powerhouse delivers 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. It can reach 100 km/h in just over six seconds. Even with these specs, the fuel economy rating is still 8.7 L/100 km (hwy). The regular SkyActiv-G I-4 still offers excellent performance and throttle response with its six-speed automatic transmission.
