Some versions equipped with i-Activ all-wheel-drive additionally have Off-Road mode, which makes the driving feel more natural on rough and slippery surfaces.
Mazda’s next-generation Skyactiv vehicle architecture has now been applied to the CX-5 2022, further developing the body structure, suspension, and seats to improve driving comfort and reduce fatigue. Road noise is also significantly reduced, especially when driving on rough surfaces such as macadam.
Next, the 2022 Mazda CX-5 SUV features a powerful new, three-dimensional grille and a new design of Mazda’s distinctive ‘wings’. The headlights and taillights have also been redesigned, and a new Zircon Sand body color has been added.

The Newground equipment features a silver protective and decorative front and rear bumper trim and decorative door moldings, black exterior mirror housings, lime green details on the front grille, and 19-inch specially machined aluminum wheels.

The brilliantly shiny silver color of the 19-inch wheels emphasizes the ‘metallic’ look of the car. The interior is characterized by soft Nappa leather and luxurious textures of real wood paneling.
Inside, the CX-5 2022 now also offers the ability to wirelessly charge the phone on the center console. The two-part boot floor, which can be turned over, and the boot sill are flush for easier loading. Models with Newground equipment also have a boot floor with a waterproof side for wet or dirty items.
Improvements to i-Activsense security systems now include Cruising & Traffic Support (CTS). CTS helps reduce driver fatigue by helping to accelerate, brake, and steer when stuck in traffic jams. Finally, adaptive LED headlights (ALH) have also been improved to provide better control over light distribution.
