Lauded by critics and car-shoppers alike, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 continues to deliver many technology and refinement updates that put it in a favorable light against more expensive premium SUVs. Mazda CX-5 is Mazda’s best-selling vehicle in the United States. Industry accolades include the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s recognition of “Top Safety Pick” and WardsAuto “10 Best UX” for its intuitively designed cabin. For 2018, CX-5 further improves on performance and efficiency with new cylinder-deactivation technology that can reduce fuel consumption by shutting down the two outside cylinders. Mazda is the only automaker to offer this technology on a four-cylinder engine in North America.
