I have no real idea here but it seems to me the CX5's days are numbered regardless of sales. We now have the 30 and the 50. The 70 and the 90 are coming. Based on the videos of the 60 in Europe it appears the CX70 will be the slightly larger replacement for the smaller than average CX5 and I think they nailed it watching the vids. the 90 replaces the 9. If the 90 is here in the fall and the 70 is here next fall then its reasonable to think 2023 might be the last year for the CX5? Otherwise it feels like the lineup is cluttered keeping the 5.
CX5 is Mazda's best seller by far in the U.S. at 51% of total U.S. volume. Even Mazda said Cx5 is not going anywhere, it's basically their bread and butter. I would see a Mazda3 or a slight possibility the Mx-5 being discontinued before the CX5.

Mine is - Hyundai Ioniq 5 AWD Limited.
This replaced my wife’s RAV4.

Thinking about a PHEV when it’s time to replace the CX-5. CX-70 sounds like a definite possibility in a few years.
Congrats! Ioniq 5 is one of the best mainstream EV especially with AWD. My only concerns are no rear wiper/washer which Hyundai is apparently adding later and low ground clearance. We have tough winters where I live (similar to Minneapolis) but that's not the case for most people. I don't drive much anymore so I guess I could live again with a vehicle with no rear wiper and low ground clearance!

Lack of a rear wiper sucks, but is manageable in Denver’s dry climate. Seattle, not so much.

Not worried about ground clearance - that’s duty for our CX-5 with Blizzaks.

Isn't the CX-5 their best selling vehicle? This makes no sense.

You could very well be right. However, if you look at the trend of the brand with the 30, 50, 60, 70 & 90, it seems cloudy as to where the CX5 fits in. In just looking at the 60 and knowing that it will be mostly what the 70 will be here, I for one would have gotten that over the 5 in a heartbeat and based on the specs, its not THAT MICH bigger. Hell if I had a choice, I would have gotten the 50 over the 5. Yes its their best selling model, until it isn't. It was always a knock on the 5 as far as space goes and if the 70 solves that, well everything could change. Of course this takes time but they will have baseline data in hand with the 60 in Europe.

Well sure, its their best selling model until it isn't. I don't think the CX-5 is going anywhere while it still is their best selling model, so your idea that there wouldn't be a CX-5 after 2023 seems highly unlikely to me.
