2021 mazda cx-5 for sale in kelowna bcOne of the most significant advantages of small SUVs is that they handle like sedans rather than trucks. Not all of these crossovers perform the same. The engine, drivetrain, traction control system, and other traits have to combine to provide a car-like driving experience. One of the vehicles that achieves this balance is the 2021 Mazda CX-5.

The mid-range 2021 Mazda CX-5 GT trim uses a Skyactiv-G 2.5L I-4 with Cylinder Deactivation. A Dynamic Pressure Turbo (DPT) version of the engine is available, as well. The standard motor delivers car-like fuel efficiency (7.9 L/100 km on the highway), while the optional upgrade brings 320 lb.-ft of torque and 250 horsepower. 

The good news is that many of the features that make the 2021 CX-5 GT a driver-friendly vehicle do not require an upgrade. For example, the 2,698 mm wheelbase creates a wide stance, and the i-Activ system transfers torque to different wheels depending on driving conditions.

All CX-5s use a technology called G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) to adjust performance based on the forces put on the vehicle. This feature gives the GT and its sister trims sports-car-like handling, especially when cornering or on curves. 

If you are seeking a small SUV, you likely want a vehicle with truck-like traits that drives like a car. The 2021 Mazda CX-5 GT fits that description. Contact our Kelowna, BC dealership today to schedule a test drive.
