- 2022 CX-5 Turbo
Same here. I once parked my CX5 next to a CX-50. The latter is lower and wide. I like the look better actually. However, the beam rear suspension is a turnoff for me.Model for model they are also more expensive and of a lesser quality compared to the completely sorted-out CX-5. After comparing them side by side the 5 was an easy choice for me, but for those seeking a more rugged lifestyle the 50 would likely be a no-brainer.
CX-5 is a matured package. Big seller for Mazda. I don't see how Mazda will discontinue it unless the sale drops so low. Rumor has it that PHEV will come to CX-5 also, not just CX-50.
Maybe a 2L PHEV, not 2.5L to have market separation from bigger models.
In some countries, vehicle tax is based on engine displacement... reasonable or not.
