The 2020 Mazda CX-5 earned the new i-Activsense suits of driver-assist features as part of the standard equipment. There has also been some new tech added to the higher-end trim levels. In 2021, it's expected that there might be a Mazda CX-5 hybrid model, but that information isn't confirmed yet.

Possible Redesign? | 2021 vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5

This generation was released in 2017, so it is soon time for an update. It's possible that we will see a new exterior design with the 2021 Mazda CX-5, but nothing has confirmed that yet.

MPG | 2021 vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 earns up to 25 city/31 highway mpg. If the 2021 Mazda CX-5 receives new powertrains, these numbers might change slightly.

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 features a standard four-cylinder engine that pumps out 187 horsepower or choose the turbo motor that produces 250-horsepower. Either of these engines are paired with a six-speed auto transmission. Front-wheel-drive is the standard on all models, but you can choose to upgrade to all-wheel-drive. The 2021 Mazda CX-5 will come equipped with a 190-horsepower 2.5-liter engine or a 250-horsepower turbo-four. There might also be a hybrid model introduced.

Trims/Configurations | 2021 vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5

  • Sport
  • Touring
  • Grand Touring
  • Grand Touring Reserve
  • Signature

Towing Capacity | 2021 vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 can tow up to 2,000 pounds. With the updated engine options, it's possible that the 2021 Mazda CX-5 might be able to tow slightly more.

Interior | 2021 vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 has room for five occupants. In total, there are 30.9 cubic feet of room behind the seats with 59.6 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded. We expect these numbers to remain relatively the same for the 2021 model year. This year, the standard features include a seven-inch touchscreen, as well as the i-Activsense suite of driver-assist features. We may also see more advanced technology as standard equipment in the 2021 Mazda CX-5.

Exterior Features | 2021 vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 dimensions measure 179″ L x 73″ W x 65″ H. We expect the same for 2021. In addition, you can choose from seven exterior color choices on either model.
