Highlights in the 2020 CX-5

There’s something to be said for an automaker that puts focus not just on driving performance, but driving experience. Sure, the CX-5 has exceptional performance features too, but that’s just the start. The ride has been enhanced with SKYACTIV® technology to minimize fatigue and improve comfort. Predictive i-ACTIV AWD® isn’t just a regular all-wheel drivetrain system; it adapts to the ever-changing conditions of the road and weather, putting all four wheels to work when you need it to and automatically switching back to two-wheel drive to increase fuel efficiency when you’re cruising in mild conditions. Some of the other highlights available in the CX-5 include:

  • Genuine layered wood trim
  • Caturra Brown Nappa leather seats
  • Ambient lighting
  • Active noise cancellation
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
  • BOSE® sound system
  • Active Driving Display
  • And much more!
