January 15th, 2021 by

2021 Mazda CX-5 Fuel Efficient SUV

Not only does the 2021 Mazda CX-5 have impressive performance, technology, and a beautiful exterior it also has spectacular efficiency to match. This makes it easily one of the best cars for your daily commutes around North Wales, or for weekend trips outside of Lansdale. Discover more about why the Mazda gas mileage is so outstanding below. 

MAZDA CX-5 Engines and MPG Ratings

The standard 2021 Mazda CX-5 engine is the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L four-cylinder that produces 187 hp, and 186-lb of torque. However, if you opt instead for the CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve, Carbon Edition Turbo, and Signature trims, you’ll have the stronger SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T four-cylinder engine that produces 250 hp and up to 310 lb of torque with premium fuel. 

Here is a look at the EPA-estimated MPG ratings for the entry-level 2021 Mazda CX-5 sport models:

  • 187-hp SKYACTIVⓇ-G 2.5L four-cylinder with FWD: Up to 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway
  • 187-hp SKYACTIVⓇ-G 2.5L four-cylinder with i-ACTIV AWDⓇ: Up to 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway

Choose a Mazda CX-5 Carbon Edition Turbo, meanwhile, and you’ll still get a fantastic 23 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, even with the larger engine, when equipped with FWD. Choose the same vehicle with AWD, and mileage drops to a still-respectable 22 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. This is the same mileage you’ll get in a Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve or Signature model, which both boast standard AWD. Overall, the Mazda CX-5 gas mileage rating is just as impressive as the rest of this compact SUV. 


To further help the Mazda gas mileage is the standard equipped SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. This system adjusts power and shifts the vehicle’s weight during cornering, contributing to a much smoother ride. It’s a subtle addition, but it will quickly become one of the features that will make you never want to go back to a time before you had it.

MAZDA CX-5 Drive Selection

Another example of the Mazda dedication to giving drivers ultimate control over their ride, the CX-5 features a Drive Selection to adjust handling on the fly. Flip the switch, and you’ll be in Sport mode, which gives you a quicker throttle response to help you merge, change lanes, or pass vehicles on the highway. Flip it back and disengage Sports mode, and enjoy the benefits of the Mazda gas mileage and comfortable ride.
