2023 Mazda CX-5 Arrives With New Premium Paint And Updated Pricing

Pricing / 5 Comments

Rhodium White has joined the fray just a month after being revealed.

Earlier this year, we heard rumors that a new Mazda CX-5 may be on the way, but only a month after these rumors started to circulate, new information suggested that the CX-50 would essentially replace the CX-5. But neither has yet happened. Instead, Mazda has revealed pricing and packages for the 2023 Mazda CX-5.

In addition, the Japanese automaker has added a new premium paint option called Rhodium White to the palette, marking the first time this color is available in the US. Of course, it's still possible that a revised CX-5 is coming in time, and it remains likely that the CX-50 will eventually replace this, but until then, let's see what Mazda is offering.


The CX-5 2.5 S opens the account with a starting price of $26,700 (excluding destination), an increase from the 2022 model's base price of $26,250. The 2.5 S Select is marked at $28,500 up from $28,250 for the 2022 model. Then we have the 2.5 S Preferred, which now costs $29,590 (up from $29,510), and the 2.5 S Carbon Edition at $30,500 (down from $30,630). The 2.5 S Premium will set you back $32,400 (down from $32,660), while the 2.5 S Premium Plus now costs $35,500 (up from $34,300).

All of these models come with the same 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine producing up to 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.

If that's not enough grunt for you, the 2.5 Turbo and 2.5 Turbo Signature are powered by a Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo (obviously) that produces 256 hp and 310 lb-ft on 93 octane fuel (227 hp and 310 lb-ft on 87 octane fuel). The 2.5 Turbo costs $36,850 (up from $36,750) while the 2.5 Turbo Signature will set you back $39,650 (up from $39,000).

All models carry a destination and handling charge of $1,275 ($1,320 in Alaska). As for that new Rhodium White Premium paint, this carries a $595 surcharge, the same you would pay for Soul Red Crystal Metallic or Machine Gray Premium.

These prices make the Mazda CX-5 more attractive than ever, although it is now even more difficult to choose between this and the CX-50, which currently starts at $26,800 for the base model and maxes out at $41,550 for the top trim.
