A new nameplate has joined Mazda’s lineup in the form of the 2023 Mazda CX-50 SUV. it is well equipped to take on the compact crossover Rivals such as the Hyundai Tucson, Nissan Rogue, and Toyota RAV4. The CX-50 is available with either a naturally-aspirated 187 horsepower 2.5-litre four-cylinder or a turbocharged version of that engine making 256 horsepower. all models come with a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. a hybrid model is also in the works that will use a Powertrain from Toyota. the CX-50 shares a platform with the subcompact CX-30 crossover and the Mazda 3 compact car.
Mazda CX-50 Exterior
On the Exterior, the 2023 CX-50 is downright handsome with its own distinct visual personality. fresher lighting, a more prominent Grille, and a flatter hood of fine details but the square wheel arches and more deliberate two-box design are what set the CX-50 apart. like the CX-5 and cx-30 crossovers, the CX-50 offers space for five passengers in two rows of seats.
Mazda CX-50 Interior
In the Mazda CX-50 interior, large Square Dashboard vents give the 50 a slightly more truckish look than the smaller CX-30. But, the overall Vibe is Tastefully upscale, especially on the loaded Premium Plus trim. the front seats are comfortable and supportive rear seat space is generous as well. but it should be noted that the CX-5 offers more Headroom. all models come with a tilt and telescoping steering wheel push button start and a partially digital gauge display.
Engine, power, and Transmission
Under the hood, all models will come with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder but the one to get is the more powerful turbocharged variant offering 256 horsepower. as the base non-turbo offering makes just 187 horsepower. a six-speed automatic is standard as is all-wheel drive and Mazda has baked-in crisp handling to the CX-50. so that it carries on the company’s tradition of offering fun to drive.
