Will CX-50 Replace Mazda CX-5?

Next-gen Mazda CX-5 could be called the CX-50, get coupe-like styling on new platform

  • Swoopier styling for new compact crossover

  • Could go to new rear-drive biased Mazda platform


A new report from Japan says that the replacement for the Mazda CX-5 could get a new nomenclature, being called the CX-50 instead, possibly making it ten times better?

Should You Buy a 2020 Mazda CX-5?

Mazda filed for a pile of trademarks last year, covering a wide range of new badges, and one of those was CX-50. They actually went ahead and trademarked CX-10 through -9.0 While that could mean that a new model is joining the lineup as a crossover-coupe like the CX-30, Spyder7 (via CarScoops) says that they’ve gotten information from insider sources that it will, instead be the replacement.

That’s not the only bit of new information here, with the same source putting the new vehicle on the front-engine rear-drive platform that Mazda announced for a new large sedan that’ll come with a new inline-six engine and 48V mild-hybrid tech.

While Spyder7 made a rendering of the possible model, we don’t think it does justice to Mazda’s quickly evolving and extremely successful styling. Mazda’s North American design director Julien Montouse told us last week that design now has equal say over vehicles with engineering and accounting, so it’ll likely be another stunner.

As far as when we could see an official announcement? 2021 or 2022, though likely after a new Mazda 6 is announced for the same platform.
