Two new special editions mark largest changes
Base price climbs $550 from last year
The 2021 Mazda CX-5 is coming with a pair of new special editions and some added driver aids on top-spec models. Though the changes are small, there is a price increase of $550, bringing the 2021 car to $28,500 to start when it arrives at dealers next month.
New to the lineup are the Kuro Edition and the 100th Anniversary edition. The former offers paint in Polymetal Grey or Jet Black, both getting gloss black mirrors and 19-inch black-finish wheels. Inside are garnet red leather seats and black honeycomb trim on the dash, doors, and handle bezels. The Kuro is equipped like a GS AWD with Comfort package, plus the above changes and a 10-way power driver seat. 100th Anniversary adds to the top Signature trim, giving it white pearl paint and garnet red Nappa leather with matching carpet. There are anniversary logos spread throughout and each customer will get a detailed model of Mazda’s first passenger car along with a photo book showing the history of Mazda.
The rest of the lineup includes GX in front and all-wheel drive, GS with leatherette seats, headlight levelling, and a power liftgate as well as radar cruise and smart brake support, and GT with wireless Apple CarPlay, Bose audio, navigation, and an optional 2.5L turbo four. At the top is Signature, offering the 2.5L turbo, and adding Smart City Brake Support Rear and Driver attention Alert to i-Activesense, cocoa brown Nappa leather, real wood trim, 360-camera, and more.
