What’s New for 2018 in the Mazda CX-5?

January 30th, 2018 by

The auto experts at Kelley Blue Book call our new compact crossover "a small SUV that rides and handles like a sporty hatchback," offering "an exceptional combination of styling, economy and sports-car-like driving dynamics" that "feels far more premium" than the affordability of its investment might suggest. With all the "new" going on under the hood and in-cabin in the new 2018 Mazda CX-5, our Littleton, CO Mazda dealer can see where the KBB praise comes from.

For one, the new 2018 CX-5 builds in Mazda-exclusive cylinder-deactivation technology for the model year. It disengages the two outside cylinders on the SUV's standard 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G engine between 25 and 50 mph, delivering greatly improved fuel efficiency. Plus, you'll find a host of fresh features standard and available at each trim level.

The entire lineup of new Mazda SUVs here in Littleton showcases, among other elements, the comfort of a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob along with situational awareness help from a standard Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The new 2018 CX-5 Sport now makes the i-ACTIVSENSE suite available as an optional package. That means the availability of top-tier driver-assist features previously only available at higher trim levels, from Lane Departure Warning and Lane-Keep Assist to Mazda Radar Cruise Control and Smart Brake Support and more.

Step up to the new CX-5 Touring, and you can avail yourself not only of standard i-ACTIVSENSE, but also durable 19 inch-alloy wheels for the trek, alongside automatic on/off headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers to help cut through the thick of inclement weather. With CX-5 Grand Touring, the lap of luxury begins to present in two-position memory driver’s seating and a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat, among other features.

But when it all comes down to the details, the new 2018 Mazda CX-5 is an experience, and one best had behind the wheel here at McDonald Mazda South. Take a spin over to see us at 6100 S Broadway and we'll introduce you to a few exciting new Mazda developments.
