The 2018 Mazda CX-5 continues to be offered in three trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. All three trim levels come equipped with a 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G engine, which can be paired with either front-wheel drive or Mazda's advanced i-ACTIV AWD®. The SKYACTIV-DRIVE® six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode and Sport mode comes standard for all trim levels, giving drivers more control behind the wheel.

All trims also add on a variety of standard features, many of which are brand new to the Mazda CX-5, for the 2018 model year. Each of the three trims will receive advanced safety features like Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, which cost extra on many competitors. Additionally, each trim now houses a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, LED headlights and taillights, and cylinder-deactivation technology, which is designed to reduce internal friction and increase the Mazda CX-5's already impressive fuel economy rating.
