For 2023, the CX-5 is available with an all-new Rhodium White Metallic exterior premium paint colour, complimenting Mazda's Kodo design. For 2023, CX-5 models retain standard i-Activ all-wheel drive in Canada when they arrive in dealerships nationwide this fall.

Offered for the first time in the Canadian market, the new Rhodium White Metallic premium paint option is a unique colour born from Mazda's exclusive Takuminuri painting technology, following Soul Red Crystal and Machine Grey Metallic. Rhodium White Metallic is a pure white inspired by Japanese aesthetics finding beauty in simplicity. The paint's fine grain accentuates the shadows on the surface of the vehicle complimenting the CX-5's sculpted body lines. Mazda believes that colour is a critical part of vehicle design. It accentuates the vehicles dynamic and delicate expression while complimenting the Kodo - Soul of Motion – design theme, something Mazda takes great pride in offering its customers.

The critically acclaimed CX-5 has received numerous top industry and safety awards including the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK+. In fact, the CX-5 was the first vehicle to earn a Good rating in IIHS's new, tougher side impact test and is currently the only small SUV to have earned this rating. To that end, all the engineering and safety features that contributed to these awards have been carried over to the 2023 model year as standard features. These include Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Smart Brake Support Front, Smart City Brake Support Front, Pedestrian Detection (forward sensing), Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. These features allow CX-5 drivers to feel confident and comfortable, from the city streets to the open highway.

The 2023 Mazda CX-5 will be available in eight configurations. Each one provides customers with a well-equipped vehicle and an impressive list of standard technology and safety features designed to meet their needs while delivering the brand's renowned driving dynamics for a rewarding experience behind the wheel.


The CX-5 GX now features Mazda's Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter, four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine with cylinder deactivation as standard equipment. This efficient powertrain delivers up to 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque with any fuel grade and is paired with a quick-shifting six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. All CX-5 models will continue to be equipped with G-Vectoring Control Plus and the i-Activ AWD system as standard. This system continuously monitors weight distribution and shifts power to the appropriate wheels, providing drivers with near instant power delivery in any driving situation. For 2023, Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) is added to the CX-5, which enables drivers to select the most appropriate drive mode with a simple switch, offering greater control over the driving experience in a wide variety of conditions. The CX-5's Mi-Drive features Normal, Off-Road, and Sport Modes.

Drawing inspiration from our Kodo design philosophy, the CX-5 stands out in the city even at a standstill. The front bumper features a signature wing which extends outward from the front grill with a unique three-dimensional texture. The rear of the vehicle is complemented by sport inspired dual tailpipes that mesh seamlessly with the rear bumper for a premium look. The headlights and taillights each feature a pair of horizontally spaced, rectangular LED lights that are sure to draw the eye.
