2022 Mazda CX-5 goes AWD-only, enjoys mild styling updates
The changes here aren't monumental, but the CX-5 was already pretty good.
Mazda's CX-5 crossover goes all-wheel-drive-only for 2022.
It also gets some small styling updates inside and out.
Also new for 2022 is the addition of Mazda's Mi-Drive intelligent drive modes.
Powertrain options remain the same, but the standard six-speed automatic transmission has been retuned.
The CX-5 also gets a stiffer chassis and more comfortable and supportive seats to ensure that it remains fun to drive.
