The Mazda CX-5 is arguably the best overall crossover vehicle today, and certainly one of the best selling CUV’s in Minnesota. From great looks, to a sporty engine, and premium-level features, the CX-5 has it all. It’s the ideal mainstream SUV, but with the Twin Cities market trending towards more rugged, off-road capable vehicles, Mazda didn’t have a great option, until now.
The 2023 Mazda CX-50 is the solution. This is a vehicle that plenty capable on the trail. However, it’s is more than just a rugged version of the CX-5. This new CUV has a lot of features which differentiate it from its city-tailored cousin.
We expect to see the 2023 Mazda CX-50 in early April, but anticipate all of them being pre-sold before they get there. Learn more about our Walser Mazda Pre-Order here.
Greatly Improved Off-Road Capability
A first look at the Mazda CX-50 will show you that it’s built for going off-road. Here’s your upgrades:
Increased ground clearance (8.5 inches)
Multi-terrain drive modes (sport, off-road, tow)
Model specific accessories (roof platform, roof top tent, weather package, and more!
Having more space is a selling point for crossover SUVs. While the Mazda CX-5 is no slouch in this regard, the Mazda CX-50 takes it to a new level. Both vehicles are built on different platforms, as the CX-50 is based off the very popular CX-30. The 2023 Mazda CX-50 is 10 inches longer, 2-3 inches wider, and 2-inches shorter in over all height compared to the 2022 Mazda CX-5, giving it a more rugged look, and wider stance/longer wheelbase for increased capability and improved handling.
Another advantage of the increased size in the CX-50 is that there’s more cargo space on board. As a result, you’ll be able to load your vehicle with more off-roading and hiking equipment, or some more skiing accessories for those Minnesotan winters.
The 2023 Mazda CX-50 will have a heavy-duty construction. Here are some of the highlights the new model will have:
Two engine options
Standard Skyactiv-G 2.5 DI 4 cylinder (187 HP, 186 lb-ft torque)
