The 2013 Mazda CX-5 comes in three trim levels: the base Sport, the mid-level Touring (which is expected to make up the bulk of sales), and the luxurious Grand Touring. To Mazda’s credit, it offers all-wheel drive on all three models.
The Sport includes a tilting and telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, remote keyless entry, a Start button, power windows and doors, and 17-inch alloy wheels (on the automatic model). An optional Bluetooth package for the Sport only adds Bluetooth pairing, an in-dash color monitor, HD radio, and Bluetooth controls on the steering wheel.
The Touring adds a six-way power driver’s seat, blind-spot monitoring, a 5.8-inch in-dash touch screen with a reversing camera, HD radio, Bluetooth phone and audio pairing, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. On the Touring, a Moonroof/Bose package combines a nine-speaker Bose audio system with a power moonroof.
At the top of the lineup, the Grand Touring offers larger 19-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, the nine-speaker Bose audio system and power moonroof as standard, rain-sensing wipers, and auto-on/off headlights..
Options include a Tomtom navigation system as part of a Technology package on the Touring and Grand Touring models that also adds keyless entry, auto-leveling HID headlamps, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a burglar alarm and, on the Touring only, rain-sensing wipers.
