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.
