The 2022 Mazda CX-5 is getting a few significant updates to help keep it fresh. All models now get standard i-ACTIV AWD®, improving its off-road performance as well as its ability to find traction in inclement weather. That’s confidence that New Yorkers will probably find valuable at this time of the year.
The Mazda CX-5 also receives tweaks to the suspension and seats, both of which should make the ride even more comfortable. And at the front, the grille features a new three-dimensional mesh texture that should help the SUV stand out whether parked or in motion.
Under the hood, the Mazda CX-5 offers an available SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo engine that produces up to 256 horsepower with 93 octane fuel. It’s quick and smooth, with lots of torque at the low range, making it responsive at any speed.
Inside the cabin, you’ll find a 10.25-inch Mazda Connect™ display that you can control via touch, voice, steering wheel controls, or even the Multifunction Commander control rotary dial in the center console. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are standard, as well as a variety of i-ACTIVSENSE® safety technologies like Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning.
The 2020 Mazda CX-5 now comes standard with the advanced i-ACTIVSENSE® suite of driver-assist technology. This bundle includes smart technology like the Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Obstruction Warning, Adaptive Front Lighting, High Beam Control, and Mazda Radar Cruise Control. It also boasts premium features like rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, and Smart City Brake Support which can automatically engage the brakes to prevent or reduce the severity of an accident.
The upper trims also offer new refinements. The Grand Touring now sports paddle shifters, while the Grand Touring Reserve and the Signature trims have a larger, 8-inch touch screen and a more powerful engine. While the 2019 Mazda CX-5 could deliver 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, the 2020 model pumps out 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque.
In addition to these updates, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 offers Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capabilities, along with available heated and ventilated front seats, Caturra Brown Nappa leather trim, and the Mazda Navigation System.

You have probably heard the winter predictions by now. If you haven’t, weather experts think we are going to have heavy winter this year with lots of snow. According to the Farmers’ Almanac, winter temperatures are expected to be closer to “normal,” which means cold, and precipitation will be “above normal.”
So, how can you prepare for snow on Long Island? The first thing you need to do is make sure you have the right vehicle. If you are worried your front-wheel drive sedan won’t cut it this winter, Mazda has a great lineup of crossovers—all with available all-wheel drive.
The CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 not only offer superior traction with their available all-wheel drive systems, but they come with great features like the MAZDA CONNECT™ system, an available Bose® sound system, and advanced safety features.
Along with the right vehicle, you also need the right tires. No matter which vehicle you drive, winter tires can make a big difference. They are designed using a special type of rubber that stays soft even when the temperatures are frigid. And, the unique tread patterns cut through snow and slush better than all-weather tires.
If you are looking for a new winter ride or just want a new set of tires, come visit us at Wantagh Mazda before the worst of winter arrives.
Mazda is a family-centric automaker that makes it a priority to offer vehicles designed for families of all ages and lifestyles. Traveling through the suburbs is a breeze in the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9, but heading into New York City can be cause for concern. That’s why Mazda is packing in more safety features each and every year. Here’s a closer look at some Mazda SUV safety.
The latest addition to Mazda’s safety features comes in the form of Automatic Emergency Braking. The active safety technology will be standard on all new Mazda vehicles by September 2022. The system is currently standard or available on the Mazda CX-3 and CX-5.
Automatic Emergency Braking uses on-board radar and cameras to detect when a crash is imminent. Once a collision is detected, the system warns the drivers and adjusts the brakes for more rapid braking. If the driver fails to respond, the system will apply the brakes on its own.
Mazda SUV safety is growing with more active safety technologies making their way to the road each year. Automatic Emergency Braking improves driver safety by offering the capability to hit the brakes fast to avoid hitting pedestrians and other vehicles.
Federal Crash Test Results
Many consumers put much of their confidence in federal crash tests results. We here at Wantagh Mazda are happy to announce that the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 all earned Top Safety Pick+ Ratings, the highest rating possible, from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The automotive market is always on the move. There is still a lot of 2017 to go, but 2018 is creeping up, and there are already some 2018 models available. Mazda has big plans for its 2018 model year. In fact, the 2018 Mazda updates include an all-new three-row crossover called the CX-8 along with updates for the CX-5 and CX-9.
The CX-8 is bound for the Japanese market and will be shorter and narrower than the large CX-9 model sold here in the United States. We Americans like things a bit bigger, which is why Mazda is just sending the CX-8 to Japan. As for the American 2018 CX-9, it should get a few exterior updates including new LED headlights.
One exciting change for the 2018 CX-5 is the addition of a diesel engine option. This engine promises to deliver a fun-to-drive, fuel-saving experience that experienced drivers should love. Additionally, it should have a sportier, more sculpted exterior design.
Here at Wantagh Mazda, we can’t wait to see what the 2018 Mazda model year will bring. We expect to see some of these models start rolling in as early as this fall. Which 2018 Mazda model are you most looking forward to?
September was a great month for Mazda. In fact, Mazda set sales records for both the CX-5 and the Mazda6. Total vehicle sales in the United States were up 6.7 percent over last year with 23,980 vehicles delivered.
“The past two years have seen a September sales month without the Labor Day holiday, which can present a challenge for our dealers, yet we still reported a year-over-year increase,” said Ron Stettner, vice president of sales, MNAO, in a statement. “Sales growth continues to be the product of strong dealer support and SKYACTIV Technology, specifically the quality, fuel efficiency, technology and value found in Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5.”
With 4,263 vehicles sold, the Mazda6 had its best September since 2005—a 34.6 percent increase over September 2013 sales. The CX-5 also had a great month, with a 28.9 percent year-over-year jump driven by the 8,097 units sold.
Helping to boost Mazda’s overall sales is its innovative Skyactiv Technology, which boosts performance and fuel efficiency at the same time. More than 84 percent of Mazda vehicles sold in September were equipped with Skyactiv Technology.
