Ready to see what the critics have to say about the 2022 Mazda CX-50? Check out this Mazda CX-50 review below.

Car and Driver MAZDA CX-50 Review

The team at Car and Driver was impressed by this SUV’s refined powertrain, premium styling, and top-notch handling, stating that it has a “pleasant on-road driving demeanor, an appealing design, and class-above refinement—all for about the same price as its mainstream competitors.” When it comes to performance, “The turbo engine provides a strong swell of low-end torque, and the transmission shifts crisply and does a great job of predicting what gear you want.”

MotorTrend MAZDA CX-50 Review

Experts at MotorTrend loved the gorgeous interior of the Mazda CX-50. “The CX-50’s interior is classy and upscale as expected; we especially liked the contrast-color stitching and two-tone upholstery on our Premium Plus evaluation model.” What’s more? The team compared its ride quality with that of a German sports car, saying, “It should come as no surprise the 2023 Mazda CX-50 is at its best on a sharp, twisty road, where its admirably precise steering and well-damped suspension give the kind of precision we expect from a German sports car.”

Other Noteworthy Quotes

  • Autoblog: “The CX-50’s longer and wider footprint makes it feel more substantial and planted on the road than the CX-5 and other compact SUVs. It feels a bit more like a midsize model, especially with the turbo engine, and therefore will make a happier highway cruiser.”
  • J.D. Power: “Mazda goes to great lengths to make its products feel smooth, natural, and engaging to drive. The automaker’s decades of dedication to creating a sensation of a horse and its rider as one, a philosophy it calls jinba ittai, is plainly evident in the new CX-50. It is a delight to drive.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “The CX-50 pulls off the impressive trick of keeping the driver informed, yet still removing the harshness. It doesn’t become tiresome driving long stretches on rough roads.”
