2022 Mazda CX-50

2022 Mazda CX-50 Overview

Mazda is expected to reveal the 2022 CX-50 at this year's LA Auto Show, according to sources familiar with the matter. What's the difference between the first-ever CX-50 and the popular CX-5? The CX-50 will have more coupe-like styling and premium features in a bid to move the Japanese brand further upmarket towards BMW and Audi territory. The CX-50 is expected to be a bit longer and more stylish in general.

It will also ride on a new and separate platform, a new rear-wheel-drive-based setup internally called the FR Large Architecture. It won't be all-electric but will come powered by a 3.0-liter gasoline inline-six engine that'll either be turbocharged or twin-turbocharged. A diesel is also possible. The engine (or engines) will further be electrified thanks to a 48-volt battery and mild-hybrid technology. A new eight-speed automatic will direct power to the rear or all four wheels.

We expect additional details to arrive before the expected reveal this fall.
