Mazda Is Preparing Big Changes In 2022

Mazda should be revealing a number of new models including an upscale CX-5, over the next two years


  • A new Mazda6 and CX-5 are on the list.

  • Both of these vehicles will share a whole new platform.

  • The Mazda2 and CX-3 are also going to be all-new.


Mazda is about to hit its stride. The culmination of many years of developing new architectures, powertrains, and refining their new premium design language will be numerous new models that will have little to do with the vehicles they will be replacing. Among them will be a new CX-3, CX-5, and Mazda6 flagship sedan.

The CX-5 will be the brand’s most important new introduction for the North American market. Expected to be revealed at the end of 2022, it will feature the new front-engine-rear-drive platform that will be shared with the Mazda6. The latter should break cover in April of 2022 and will introduce the new architecture complete with its 3.0-litre inline-6 cylinder and RWD layout. This all-new SkyActiv-X engine will be paired with 48V mild hybrid technology and possibly a PHEV iteration.

According to the source story from Best Car Web, the CX-5 will compete with the likes of the BMW X5. It’s unclear if the new Mazda CX-5 will grow to match the BMW’s size however it will, without a doubt, meet it in content and premium build quality.

The new Mazda2 should debut in September this year while its SUV twin, the CX-3, will be shown in June of 2022. These vehicles should get a downsized 1.5-litre SkyActiv-X 4-cylinder engine, knocking down the CX-3 (specifically) from the CX-30 in Mazda’s hierarchy. This decision leads us to believe that the CX-3 will eventually meet the Mazda2’s fate and no longer be offered in North America.

If anything, this news further proves that Mazda is serious about its premium aspirations.
