New 2013 Mazda CX-5

Mazda is proud to announce that its all-new 2013 CX-5 compact crossover, which goes on sale in the spring of 2012, delivers best-in-class fuel economy.

CX-5 models sporting a front-wheel-drive setup and a six-speed manual are rated by the EPA at 26 miles per gallon city, 35 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined. Those models equipped with the Mazda’s new Skyactiv six-speed automatic transmission achieve a slightly lower 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined. The all-wheel-drive CX-5 gets 25 mpg city, 31 highway and 28 mpg combined. All CX-5 models are powered by a new Skyactiv 2.0L engine that produces 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft. of torque.

These are impressive numbers for the crossover segment, especially when it is coming from an automaker as small as Mazda. Although the CX-5 has the same 35 highway mileage as the Chevrolet Equinox, it easily beats the Chevy’s city mileage by 4 mpg, enough to place it at the number one spot in the segment.
