2013 Mazda CX-5 Crossover Priced

February 6, 2012
Mazda has a lot riding on the success of its CX-5 crossover, which replaces the aging Mazda Tribute in the automaker’s lineup. Unlike the Tribute, which was nothing more than a badge-engineered Ford Escape, the CX-5 is an all new compact crossover that benefits from Mazda’s suite of SkyActiv technologies.

Mazda will be fairly aggressive in pricing the CX-5, too. Base Sport models will start from $20,695 in front-wheel drive (FWD), excluding a $795 destination charge. Opt for an all-wheel-drive (AWD) version of the CX-5 Sport, available with the six-speed automatic transmission only, and the price starts at $23,345.

CX-5 Touring models, which include standard features such as Bluetooth connectivity, fog lamps, upgraded cloth seats, a rear-view monitor and a blind spot detection system, start from $23,895 in FWD. Opt for AWD, and the CX-5 Touring begins at $25,145.

If you want even more amenities, opting for the CX-5 in Grand Touring trim will get you 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, heated side view mirrors, rain sensing wipers, leather seating and a moonroof. The price of admission for the Grand Touring trim starts at $27,045 in FWD and jumps to $28,295 in AWD.

Add the Technology Package (which includes things like a TomTom navigation system, auto-leveling HID lighting, keyless entry and an auto-dimming mirror) to a Grand Touring trim CX-5 in AWD, and the sticker price of a loaded CX-5 tops out at $29,620 excluding the aforementioned delivery charge.

That prices the CX-5 range from just under $21,000 to just under $30,000, which gives the Mazda a lower starting point than the new Honda CR-V and Toyota’s RAV4. Topped out, the CX-5 is on par, price wise, with rivals from Japan, which should make the new compact crossover from Mazda very competitive in the segment.
