I was invited by Mazda to fly to California to drive the all-new Mazda CX50, but as usual, all opinions are my own.
Adventures With The New Mazda CX50
The Mazda Cx-50 has some great features that an outdoor enthusiast like me really appreciates!
Starting with the colors which bring us back to earth and nature! I personally love the Zircon sand metallic color – green truly inspired by nature
I drove the blue turbo version, truly a rugged beauty! What do you think?
The approach to bring us back to nature and to enjoy the outdoors is reflected in every decision and vehicle capability!
More human in nature – being outdoors impacts our happiness and well being. Mazda wants people to spend more time in nature.
Also love that the CX-50 is the first Mazda vehicle with a panoramic moonroof.
Driving it for 5 hours on super narrow roads gave me the full perspective to understand that it is wider and longer to give us more space for our weekend adventures … like camping gear, the cooler and so much more.
Love the interior color, the stitching and all the attention to detail and how it gives a premium feel and look that Mazda vehicles have when compared to the competition.
The towing and off-road modes make it simple for you to enjoy your new camping site, a new lake or a new hiking destination.
I tested both modes and absolutely loved how it handled towing 3,500 pounds!
The Off-Road Mode shows how impressive all the work put into making this crossover is. The Mazda CX-50 is your new best friend when your vehicle hits uncharted territories and all you want to leave is dust behind!
Another interesting thing about the 2023 Mazda CX-50 is that the CX-50 started production at the Mazda-Toyota Manufacturing plant in Alabama beginning January 2022.
Something I wanted to share as a tech lover and Apple user – I found the 10.25” screen could be a bit larger and closer to the driver.
Touchscreen is available and so is Apple Car Play / Android Auto – but it is not so intuitive to make the switch to touchscreen mode.
The Mazda CX-50 2023 2.5 S starting MSRP is $26,800 and Mazda CX-50 2.5 Turbo starts at $36,400.
The CX-50 is expected to go on sale sometime in mid-2022 as a 2023 model.
I loved all the features that make it the perfect vehicle for outdoor lovers like me – so much that I’m considering trading my current SUV!
Can’t wait to hear what you think of the Mazda CX50!
