All-New Grand Touring Reserve and Signature Trims
For 2019, the Mazda CX-5 gets two new upper trim levels: the Grand Touring Reserve and the top-line Signature. The new Signature trim level is the most luxurious CX-5 Mazda has ever produced. Buyers will be treated to brown Nappa leather, wood trim, satin chrome accents and ambient cabin lighting. A black cloth headliner adds even more sophistication. The Signature also comes with standard heated and ventilated seats to provide the driver and passengers with the ultimate comfort. If you’re looking for some outstanding tech features, you’ll be happy to know the 2019 CX-5 Signature also comes with a 10-speaker Bose audio system, a navigation system and Active Driving Display with Road Sign Recognition.
New Turbocharged Four-Cylinder Engine
Like the outgoing model, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is powered by a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 187 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. For 2019, Mazda introduces a new turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder powerplant into the roster. This engine develops 250 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque with premium gasoline. With regular, this block puts out 227 hp. Found on the new Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims, this engine also gets the six-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive.
Refined G-Vectoring Control System
While the 2018 Mazda CX-5 was known to be one of the best-handling vehicles in its class, drivers who buy the 2019 Mazda CX-5 will get even better driving dynamics, thanks to the updated vectoring feature. The 2019 CX-5’s new standard G-Vectoring Control Plus system provides even better cornering capability by slightly applying the brakes to an individual wheel.

The 2018 and 2019 Mazda CX-5 both get MazdaConnect as standard equipment. But the 2019 CX-5 now has standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration on the Touring and higher trims.

Parking on crowded streets can be a hassle. Mazda solves this problem with a new 360-degree monitor with parking sensors. Standard on the Signature trim, this system makes it easier to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
