The 2023 Mazda CX-50 makes you enjoy a seamless connection to every terrain with our newest i-Activ AWD® technology, a standard feature on all trim levels. The CX-50 is also equipped with Mazda intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) technology that includes drive modes that enhance off-road and sport driving. Turbo models also include a mode designed to support towing. So, you can stay effortlessly immersed at the moment, no matter where the road takes you.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
All models of the 2023 Mazda CX-50 will come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder but the one to get will be the more powerful turbocharged variant offering 250 horsepower. The base non-turbo offering will make just 186 hp. A six-speed automatic is standard, as is all-wheel drive, and Mazda will no doubt be baking-in crisp handling to the CX-50 so that it carries on the company’s tradition of offering affordable, fun-to-drive vehicles.
A hybrid model will join the lineup later on with a powertrain sourced from Toyota. We expect it to be the one found in the RAV4 Hybrid, which is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with two electric motors good for a combined 219 horsepower. When we get a chance to test-drive the CX-50 we’ll update this story with driving impressions and test results.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Like the CX-5 and CX-30 crossovers, the 2023 Mazda CX-50will offer space for five passengers in two rows of seats. Inside, large square dashboard vents give the 50 a slightly more truckish look than the smaller CX-30, but we can see a familiar 8.8-inch infotainment display sprouting from the dashboard. When Mazda releases more information about the CX-50’s interior and infotainment features, we’ll update this story with details.
As more information becomes available, we’ll update this story with more details about:
