Differentiating the 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 Trim Levels

2016.5 Mazda CX-5 Salem

Mazda is introducing a midyear 2016 CX-5 in three different trim levels. While they are all very similar, each one does have some unique feature(s) that differentiate it from the others. The three trim levels for the 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 are the Sport, the Touring, and the Grand Touring. Take a look at each one to see what they offer and consider which one would best suit your needs.

2016.5 Mazda CX-5 Trim Features

All three of the 2016.5 CX-5 trim levels are powered by Mazda’s 2.5-liter engine that averages 33 mpg* highway and generates 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. They all come with an automatic transmission. Some of the other features that are standard across all the trim levels are: push-button start; power windows with driver’s one-touch up/down feature; steering wheel-mounted phone, audio, and cruise controls; Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio capability; rearview camera; advanced front airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and side-impact air curtains; and an E911 automatic emergency notification.


Unique CX-5 Trim Features

The Grand Touring trim is the only one on which 19-inch alloy wheels come standard. The other two come with 17-inch alloy wheels. The Sport trim lacks the heated outside mirrors and heated front seats that the Touring and Grand Touring trims have. The Sport trim has a 60/40 split rear seat, while the other two have a 40/20/40 split. Only the Grand Touring trim has a power sliding-glass moonroof. The Sport trim is the only one that has a manual transmission as an option. However, the Sport trim lacks the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob you’ll find on the other two. Rain-sensing windshield wipers are found only on the Grand Touring trim.
