Keep reading, as this guide will help you get a closer look at this impressive, stylish Mazda SUV.
Elegant Car Design and Sophisticated Interiors
With its Polymetal Gray Metallic exterior color, the Mazda CX-5 Carbon Edition is a head-turner. Add to that its black metallic, 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels and matching gloss black side mirrors, and you have an elegant, eye-catching SUV.
Once you’re ready to get behind the wheel, you can unlock your CX-5 using the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System. You can then sigh in relief as you sit comfortably on its 8-way, power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support. The heated, leather-trimmed driver’s seat also features a 2-position memory.
Your front passenger will also be thankful for the heated, 6-way power-adjustable seat. As for your rear passengers, they can sit back and relax on the 40/20/40 split, one-touch, fold-down, and reclining seats.
Spacious Even for Adults
The front row of the CX-5 provides 39.3″ of headroom, 57.1″ of shoulder room, 55.2″ of hip room, and 41″ of legroom. This means that various drivers, long-legged or not, can comfortably take control of it.
The CX-5’s interior rear dimensions don’t compromise comfort for back passengers, either. Here, adults, tall kids, and large-breed dogs can enjoy 39.0″ of headroom, 54.8″ of shoulder room, 55.3″ of hip room, and 39.6″ of legroom.
Adequate Cargo Space
The 2024 Mazda CX-5 Carbon Edition boasts a cargo space of 30 cubic feet with the rear seatback up.
If you fold the second-row seats and keep the floorboard up, you can increase the cargo space to nearly twice (a whopping 58.1 cubic feet!). If you need even more room, you can set the floorboard down and get an additional 1.2 cubic feet. That sums up to 59.3 cubic feet.
Those figures make the CX-5’s cargo space ideal for carrying all your camping equipment or your family’s stuff and luggage for road trips. They also make its cargo capacity slightly higher than the more compact yet equally impressive Mazda CX-30.
Can Tow Your Rowboat or Trailer
The 2024 CX-5 Carbon Edition features a Skyactiv®-G 2.50liter, 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine. This allows it to generate up to 187 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. It also produces 185 lb-ft at 4,000 rpm of torque.
Thanks to those features, you can rely on this CX-5 model to tow loads of up to 2,000 pounds. That’s enough to pull two stand-up jet skis, a couple of snowmobiles, a small rowboat, a motorcycle, or a small trailer or camper.
Award-Winning Safety and Reliability
New Mazda vehicle models usually undergo independent, third-party safety testing.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is one organization that conducts such tests. It researches, studies, and assesses the crashworthiness of new cars yearly. It then awards models that pass its stringent testing procedures with a “Top Safety Pick” or “Top Safety Pick+” designation.
The 2024 Mazda CX-5 passed all of the IIHS’s tests. As a result, the IIHS gave it a Top Safety Pick award.
Another organization that conducts vehicle safety tests is the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It uses a 5-star point system, with five stars being the highest.
Once again, the 2024 Mazda CX-5 performed excellently in the NHTSA test. As a result, it garnered a final score of five out of five stars.
Those awards indicate that you can rely on the Mazda CX-5 Carbon Edition to provide extra protection during a crash. While we hope you never get into one, it pays to know that your car can help minimize the impact of collisions.
High-Class Entertainment and Connectivity
Whether you’re just popping in the supermarket or taking a road trip with the fam, you likely don’t want to drive in silence. Luckily, thanks to its long list of tech features, the CX-5 Carbon Edition will keep everyone entertained.
The CX-5 features a premium Bose® 10-speaker surround sound system with Centerpoint® and AudioPilot®. This connects to a 10.25″ full-color display with Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio capability. It also boasts HD Radio™, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Pandora® internet radio integration.
To make things even more convenient (and safe!), Mazda has mounted the audio, phone, and cruise controls on the steering wheel. You can also use voice commands to operate your CX-5 Carbon Edition’s infotainment system.
