4 Reasons to Get the New Mazda CX-50Our Blog Nov 9th , 2021
The Mazda CX-50 is an icon in every conceivable way. Fun to drive, highly responsive, optimized for luxurious comfort, and designed for rugged and challenging environments, it checks a lot of boxes for drivers. In fact, it even checks a few extras in terms of additional premium features and trim options.
With the Mazda legacy and refinements made to this model in mind, let’s explore the key reasons to consider the Mazda CX-50 as your next vehicle. We’ll cover everything from driver navigation features to aesthetics, performance, and more. Let’s dive in!
Room for More
The Mazda CX-50 is an exciting blend of the popular CX-30 and CX-5 models. It includes roomy, comfortable seating for five, making those road trips and leisurely discoveries a fun group outing every time. And, whether you’re moving, need to carry all your fishing equipment, or picking up a new furniture purchase, the trunk space is ample. You won’t find yourself short on storage – no more contorting grocery bags or lumber to make it fit!
Mazda Intelligent Drive Select Technology
The Mazda CX-50 includes state-of-the-art Mazda Intelligent Drive Select technology, otherwise known as Mi-Drive. Whether you need to tow for long hauls across the province, partake in off-road adventures in remote areas or otherwise, it keeps pace with you and adapts to your needs as a driver. This is a vehicle built to be used – and heavily – in a wide array of use cases. The term crossover has never been more accurate. Whether you’re all about city driving or getting out into the middle of nature, it’s a smooth and efficient drive every time with the four included modes (these are normal, sport, towing, and off-road, specifically).
Performance and Versatility
The Mazda CX-50 includes the same engine design as the ever-popular and highly performant CX-5 model. These include 2.5-litre, naturally aspirated engines with four cylinders. There’s also a whopping 187 horsepower under the hood or, if you go for the turbocharged option, you can up that to 250. All-wheel drive is a standard feature on the CX-50, a vehicle promoted by Mazda as an outdoor crossover specifically. The vehicle handles smoothly and nimbly even in the most challenging conditions, making it a reliable option for serious outdoor enthusiasts.
Of course, performance isn’t only about what’s under the hood. In this case, it’s about what’s on the roof: longer rails with a lower roofline, making it not only easier to haul more cargo on a rack-mount but also to retrieve it. Combined with reinforced roof and door jambs, a liftgate opening and the aforementioned roomy cargo area, there’s a lot to like whether you’re a camper, angler, or all-around off-road explorer.
A Streamlined, Rugged Design
The CX-50 is a new breed of Mazda. While a beast under the hood, it’s a premium experience for passengers and the driver, gliding more smoothly on paved and dirt roads alike. Finely detailed seat stitching, a premium audio system, and professional-looking aesthetic elements convey it as a state-of-the-art tool rather than a flashy luxury vehicle. From the inside out, you are treated by this rugged-yet-refined design language. In fact, Mazda themselves liken the CX-50’s interior to professional-grade outdoor equipment like “the grip of a telescopic lens.”
This is just a peek at the beautiful and very-much capable Mazda CX-50, and there are plenty of great reasons to consider owning this innovative new model. For more information, reach out to our team at Kanata Mazda today.
