Meet the newest member of Mazda's family of SUVs, the 2023 CX-50. This is the 2.5 Premium Plus trim.
It's very similar in size and visuals to the existing CX-5.
Mazda says the CX-50 has more off-road focused style and performance, especially in its high-end Meridian trim.
Meridian features unique wheels with tires that are more off-road oriented.
The SUV is visually and, presumably, physically taller than the CX-5.
Dark cladding protects the wheel arches and lower body from rocks and gravel.
Up front, a blacked-out version of Mazda's grille and light combo helps visually stretch the physically widened stance.
The CX-50 will be offered with turbocharged and naturally aspirated versions of Mazda's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
All-wheel drive is standard, of course.
In the coming years, electrified powertrain options will join the lineup.
