The Mazda CX-5 crossover sits just under the full-size Mazda CX-9 in the lineup. Though it’s not the largest crossover in the Mazda fleet, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 still brings plenty of capability to the table with seating for up to five passengers, 59.6 cubic feet of total cargo storage space when the rear seats are folded flat, and the ability to tow smaller items like a small trailer or pop-up camper.

It’s the perfect choice for drivers who need plenty of versatility to drive to work on a weekday and off on an adventure on the weekend. Learn more about the max towing capacity specs on the 2018 Mazda CX-5 below.

Keep in mind that loading the interior of your Mazda crossover with heavy supplies and a full load of passengers could reduce the amount you are able to safely tow. If you are interested in even more towing ability, the full-size 2018 Mazda CX-9 crossover offers even more capability with a maximum towing capacity of 3,500-pounds.

Standard 2.5-Liter Engine

The 2018 Mazda CX-5’s performance power is made possible thanks to a standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter DOHC engine rated at 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque that can be found on all trims. Even when the crossover is towing smaller items like a camper or small trailer or is loaded with passengers, drivers should have no trouble getting up to speed or passing on the highway.
