Whether you live in Stittsville, Barrhaven, Kanata or anywhere else in Ottawa, you need a vehicle that you can trust in Ottawa’s volatile weather conditions.

From freezing rain to heavy snowfall, Ottawa residents see it all. As much as they need a reliable vehicle for winter weather, it’s always nice to have a little fun in the sun when the weather permits.

In the All-New 2023 Mazda CX-50, you’ll get to do both. And we’ve got good news, this all-new crossover is on it’s way to Ottawa. North American production began in March 2022 with Canadian deliveries set for Summer 2022.

The Mazda CX-50 is advertised as an “rugged crossover”, meaning it packs all of the safety and convenience you want in your daily drive, with added capability to take you to the campsite – or peace of mind for the winter weather.

Why Choose the New Mazda CX-50 in Ottawa?

Whether it’s because they all share the “Soul of Motion” Mazda design language, or their similar size, it can be tempting to feel as though that the CX-50 is similar to the CX-5 or CX-9. But in reality, the first-ever Mazda CX-50 is so much more.

Labelled by Mazda Canada as “rugged yet refined”, the Mazda CX-50 features the newest variation of the well-known i-Active AWD technology featuring the newly engineered Mazda Intelligent Drive (Mi-Drive). Enabling a smooth transition between your on-road and off-road experiences, Mazda’s Intelligent Drive (Mi-Drive) allows you to choose the driving mode best suited to your outdoor adventure.

Boasting a wider stance, the CX-50 opens the door to a wide variety of possible road trips in your near future. With more passenger space and cargo capacity than any other Mazda 5-seater, you’ll never find yourself short on space.

These are only a few of the many reasons why you should consider the Mazda CX-50. We could go on and on about all the small details, but instead, let’s talk about what matters for your daily driving and outdoor journeys.

Tow more, with up to 3,500 lbs (1,588 kg) of towing capacity

Prior to Mazda Canada’s latest reveal of the Mazda CX-50’s towing capacities, we were left to imagine just how much we’d get from this new crossover. 

For reference, the Mazda CX-5 (the most similar Mazda model) tops out at 2,000 lbs of towing capacity, or 907 kg. 

Not only does the new CX-50 completely surpass our expectations with up to 3,500 lbs of towing capacity, but it does so with an attractive new look and impressive driving technologies.

To unlock this beast of a towing capacity in the exciting new crossover, you’ll have to take a step into the CX-50 GT Turbo trim. The GT Turbo trim represents two of three available trim levels (GS-L, GT, GT Turbo). Adventurous by nature, the CX-50 GT Turbo’s incredible towing capabilities are the result of Mi-Drive’s new Towing mode.

In addition to the boost in towing performance, the GT Turbo’s exterior will also boast exclusive badging, larger exhaust outlets and unique accents. This model’s elegant design, cabin space and engine capabilities make it comparable to the Mercedes-Benz GLC, which offers far less comfort for more money.

Customize and accessorize to accommodate your desired lifestyle

While it features a wide stance, the Mazda CX-50 is deeper than it is wide, allowing you to fit extra cargo such as coolers or outdoor gear in the rear cargo compartments.

Extra ground clearance isn’t the only thing you’ll get, your active and outdoor lifestyle will be supported with ease by the available roof rails.
