What's New For the 2020 Mazda CX-5?

Last year, several significant changes were made to the Mazda CX-5. As a result, only a few minor tweaks were deemed necessary to keep the vehicle fresh. The most exciting change involves the driver aids. The i-Activsense suite of features will now be standard on all trims. This means every 2020 CX-5 will come equipped with automatic high beams, lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control. Drivers who go with the Grand Touring or Signature trims also get a newly redesigned 8-inch infotainment screen.
