Mazda CX-5 vs. the Competition | Bedford, OH
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 delivers a level of luxury and refinement that belies its affordable price. Leveraging SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY to deliver superior performance dynamics and the latest technologies Mazda has to offer, the Mazda CX-5 stands as a viable and preferable alternative to luxury rides like the 2019 Lexus NX 300.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 features a standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L engine that generates a spirited 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque and returns an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.* For more power, the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve and Mazda CX-5 Signature are powered by a SKYACTIV®- 2.5T engine that increases the output to 250 horsepower and deliver 310 lb-ft of horsepower at just 2,000 rpm.**
In practical terms, the Mazda CX-5 with the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L is nearly as efficient as the 2019 Lexus NX 300h hybrid, but it’s significantly cheaper. The entry NX 300h starts at an MSRP of $39,070, which is almost a full $14,000 more than the i-ACTIV® AWD-equipped Mazda CX-5 Sport and over $7,000 more than the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring with i-ACTIV® AWD. With the SKYACTIV®- 2.5T engine, the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve and Mazda CX-5 Signature offer more available power than any Lexus NX 300 can deliver.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature SKYACTIV®-D
In addition to the efficient SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L and the powerful SKYACTIV®- 2.5T, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 offers a third engine option that is not matched by the Lexus. The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature SKYACTIV®-D leverages SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY and i-ACTIV AWD® to deliver a balance of capability and efficiency that you’ll appreciate every time you take off for the day. Powered by a 2.2-liter sequential twin-turbo diesel engine, the Mazda CX-5 Signature SKYACTIV®-D delivers 290 lb-ft of torque and an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway, striking a great balance between response and fuel economy. With the high-end amenities of the Mazda CX-5 Signature trim, including Caturra Brown Nappa leather seats and layered wood trim, the Mazda CX-5 Signature SKYACTIV®-D is an all-in-one option for which the Lexus NX 300 has no answer.

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 offers dynamic performance, cutting-edge technology, and winning style that resonates with drivers from all walks. Embodying the ethos of affordable luxury that’s accessible to everyone, the Mazda CX-5 Signature trim compares quite favorably with one of its notable competitors: the 2019 Acura RDX.
The thundering heart of the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is the most powerful SKYACTIV® engine Mazda has made yet. The 250-horsepower SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T is one of the most elegant pieces of engineering Mazda has ever created, virtually eliminating turbo lag with a dynamic pressure turbocharger that delivers near-instant response the moment you depress the pedal. It also delivers a beefy 310 lb-ft of torque at just 2,000 rpm, providing great acceleration and more confidence when driving in adverse weather.
The apex of luxury in the 2019 Mazda CX-5 lineup, the Mazda CX-5 Signature delivers a level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that few high-end luxury vehicles can match. The Mazda CX-5 Signature features sumptuous Caturra Brown Nappa leather seats that hug and comfort you and your passengers, genuine layered wood trim that evokes nature and fine furniture, and ambient lighting that helps place you in a better frame of mind. Striking, expertly rendered, and built to appeal to you, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature represents the best of what Mazda luxury entails.
The very idea of a luxury vehicle is in some sense built around the idea of exclusion; a luxury vehicle should be for the upper crust, not the blue-collar person who works just as hard if not harder for their keep. The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature demonstrates the commitment of Mazda to bring luxury to the masses with a starting price point that makes it easier to attain. At an MSRP of $36,890, the Mazda CX-5 Signature is hundreds of dollars more affordable than the entry-level Acura RDX, meaning you get more value for less.
