2023 Mazda CX-50 Trims & Specs

The new Mazda CX-50 is a welcome addition to the brand's stable, introducing a more rugged alternative to the sophisticated CX-5. The CX-50 is offered in a choice of ten trims, including a Meridian Edition that's on its way later in the year. Two engines - both 2.5-liter four-cylinder units - power the lineup. The naturally-aspirated unit makes 187 hp and 186 lb-ft, whereas the turbocharged one produces up to 256 hp and 320 lb-ft with premium gas. A six-speed automatic transmission and AWD are standard.

The entry-level CX-50 comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, all-terrain tires, cloth upholstery, air conditioning, and an eight-speaker sound system. Like every other CX-50, the comprehensive safety specification includes blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and radar-based cruise control. Upper trims gradually add items like power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, leatherette or leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a Bose sound system.

🚘What's the Price of the 2023 Mazda CX-50?

The Mazda CX-50's price starts off quite reasonably, although top trims are significantly pricier. With the 2.5-liter base engine, the MSRP begins at $26,800 for the S derivative. This is followed by the S Select ($28,200), S Preferred ($29,500), S Preferred Plus ($31,940), S Premium ($34,400), and S Premium Plus ($36,400). The base 2.5 Turbo shares its starting price with the top-spec of the non-turbo derivates at $36,400, Turbo Premium ($39,550), and Premium Plus ($41,550). A late addition to the range is the Turbo Meridian Edition, but pricing has not yet been indicated for it.

The Mazda CX-50's MSRP excludes the destination charge of $1,225.

🚗What 2023 Mazda CX-50 Model Should I Buy?

With a large range of choices, there should be something for everyone looking at a family hauler-come-adventure vehicle. The naturally aspirated 2.5-liter engine should be enough for most, mainly if your soft-roading is fair weather and particularly mild - only hitting reasonably traveled and kept dirt tracks to camping, hiking, and biking spots, for example. The more adventurous families will want the Off-Road mode and Hill Control functions, but these are standard from the entry-level model, so the base model should get you most places you want to go when things get soft under the wheels. From there, it's a matter of weighing up the desirability and cost of more premium features.

For the particularly adventurous - those that consider it a lifestyle and those that put in the miles - the 2.5 Turbo models will be the most desirable. It will be essential for those towing a trailer regularly, but going up the trim levels from there is a matter of price and desired features. We get a little uncomfortable about the cost of the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus, but if it's all about family hauling and putting in the miles, there are much worse ways to spend your money than Mazda's idea of style and comfort.
