2024 Mazda CX-5

The 2024 MAZDA CX-5

Mazda has redefined refinement with the 2024 CX-5, with a striking exterior and lush interior, all without sacrificing performance. Starting at just $30,550 MSRP*, the new Mazda CX-5 features standard i-Activ AWD®, SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 engine generating 185 lb-ft of torque, and available Mazda Intelligent Drive Select technology (Mi-Drive) to supercharge your Denver drives and beyond.

When stepping inside the cabin of the 2024 Mazda CX-5, you’ll be met with a large 10.25-inch touchscreen center display where you can access maps, playlists, contacts, music, and more thanks to built-in Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. An available 10-speaker Premium Bose® audio system provides optimal listening throughout the cabin thanks to innovative speaker design and placement. And, of course, you’ll enjoy the comfort of dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and more.

Alongside the state-of-the-art technology and luxurious comfort of the Mazda CX-5 cabin comes an advanced safety system with active driver assistance and collision-avoidance features designed to provide you with ultimate confidence. The 2023 Mazda CX-5 won a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating** and IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award, and the company has continued innovating its safety features for greater peace of mind. On the 2024 Mazda CX-5, i-Activsense®*** safety technology features Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Day and Night-time Pedestrian Detection, available Traffic Jam Assist, and more.

Finally, you’ll have the choice of two engines with the 2024 Mazda CX-5: the 187-horsepower SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 4-cylinder engine or the available SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine with VVT, which outputs up to 256 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque for the ultimate thrill. You’ll also enjoy the capacity to tow up to 2,000 pounds on your longer journeys, so wherever you go, you’ll enjoy an unparalleled driving experience.


The 2024 Volkswagen Tiguan

As the main competitor to the 2024 Mazda CX-5, the new VW Tiguan features many of the same features at a slightly lower price of $28,505. However, this price doesn’t include the destination charge, and the Tiguan misses a few features that make for a less satisfying Aurora drive.

The new Tiguan has plenty of space for up to five passengers in its versatile cabin, as well as an available Fender® Premium Audio System, the available SiriusXM satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. You’ll also enjoy stain-resistant cloth seating services, a height-adjustable passenger seat, second-row air vents, and more.

Volkswagen also takes their drivers’ safety seriously, and that’s why they’ve engineered their IQ.DRIVE system to help you drive confidently. Safety features on the new VW Tiguan include a rearview camera system, automatic post-collision braking system, tire pressure monitoring system, and more. However, the 2023 Tiguan only received four stars from the NHTSA for its safety.

Even though the VW Tiguan has a turbocharged engine like the Mazda CX-5, it only outputs 184 hp—meaning you won’t enjoy drives quite as thrilling as in the Mazda.
