Mazda AWD SUVs and Crossovers

  • Mazda CX-3 AWD: Mazda’s subcompact crossover SUV is powered by a 2.0L SKYACTIV-G® 4-cylinder engine that makes 146 hp and gets 32 mpg highway and 27 mpg city with AWD.
  • Mazda CX-5 AWD: Step up to the compact CX-5 and you’ll get a 2.5L SKYACTIV-G® 4-cylinder engine, which pushes out 187 hp while still getting 30 mpg highway and 24 mpg city on AWD configurations.
  • Mazda CX-9 AWD: Take advantage of seating for up to seven in the midsize CX-9. Enjoy AWD as a feature on your 2018 Mazda CX-9 or 2019 Mazda CX-9 trim level configuration of choice — each powered by a turbocharged 2.5L SKYACTIV-G® 4-cylinder engine with an output of 227 hp as well as 26 mpg highway and 20 mpg city on AWD models.
