IRVINE, Calif., July 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announces pricing for the 2025 Mazda CX-50. This versatile crossover SUV is purpose built for the active lifestyles of our customers.

2025 is an exciting year for CX-50 with the introduction of CX-50 Hybrid, which broadens the compact crossover’s appeal to a wider audience in the compact crossover (C-CUV) segment by combining Mazda’s design and driving dynamics with greater fuel efficiency and the ability to go further and engage with outdoor activities.

Electrification comes in different forms, and Mazda offers a variety of choices to best suit customer needs. Returning an EPA estimated 38 mpg combined, CX-50 Hybrid offers over 100 miles of extra driving range compared to CX-50 2.5 S models based on the same calculation methodology as fueleconomy.gov.

The 2025 CX-50 is available in ten packages across three capable, confidence-inspiring powertrain choices with standard all-wheel drive (AWD), allowing customers to find the right CX-50 model for them, and for the adventures that lie ahead.

CX-50 2.5 S MODELS

CX-50 2.5 S models are powered by a Skyactiv-G 2.5L naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine producing 187 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque on regular 87-octane fuel. Receiving internal updates for 2025, CX-50 2.5 S models see fuel efficiency increased to an EPA estimated 25 mpg city, 31 mpg freeway and 28 mpg combined, up one mpg in every segment.

This engine is paired to a Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission. The CX-50 2.5 S comes standard with i-Activ All-Wheel Drive and Mazda Intelligent Drive Select, or Mi-Drive, with Sport and Off-Road modes as well as an available Towing mode on select packages. Drive modes can be selected with the Mi-Drive control and will help the crossover SUV perform naturally and confidently in a wide variety of driving conditions, or while towing up to 2,000 pounds when equipped with Mazda genuine towing accessories.

CX-50 2.5 S Select

New for 2025, all CX-50 models now benefit from the inclusion of Alexa Built-in, allowing the driver to make certain hands-free, voice commands for prompts like changing the temperature, or radio station, to controlling their smart home devices while in the vehicle. The CX-50 2.5 S Select serves as an impressive entry point to the CX-50 line-up, offering a wide array of standard safety, convenience, and technology amenities. This includes a 10.25-inch full-color center display with HD RadioTM and four USB-C ports, 8-speaker audio system, wireless Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM integration, with touch functionality, Mazda ConnectTM Infotainment system, Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry with push-button start, a 7-inch TFT LCD instrument panel display dual-zone automatic climate control with rear passenger vents, a leather-wrapped shifter and steering wheel, leatherette seating, LED interior lighting, among many other standard features.

Moving to the exterior of the CX-50, standard features include unique 17-inch Black Metallic alloy wheels, tinted privacy glass, LED headlights, rear roof spoiler, roof rails, black power side-view mirrors with LED turn signal indicators, and dual exhaust outlets, High Beam Control, and rain-sensing wipers.

As with any Mazda vehicle, safety is a priority for the CX-50, whether on the road or venturing out into nature. For 2025, Mazda has enhanced the standard driver assistance and vehicle safety technology in CX-50 with the inclusion of rear seat alert, vehicle exit warning and an improved version of Smart Brake Support that includes provisions for nighttime pedestrian detection and head-on collision mitigation. Additional standard active and passive safety features carryover to all CX-50 packages and include Smart Brake Support with pedestrian detection, Blind Spot Monitoring, Driver Attention Alert, Lane Departure Warning System, Lane Keep Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

For 2025, the CX-50 2.5 S Preferred Package also sees the inclusion of wireless phone charging, bringing the technology into CX-50 at a more accessible price point.

CX-50 2.5 S Premium Plus

Building upon the Premium, 2.5 S Premium Plus distinguishes itself visually by offering 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with machine-cut black metallic accent and automatic power folding side-view mirrors. Inside the CX-50 cabin, the Premium Plus provides the addition of ventilated front seats, a six-way power adjustable front passenger seat, black leather seating with premium camel stitching trim inserts, two-position driver seat memory, Auto-dimming rear-view mirror with HomeLink® and full color Active Driving Display projected on the windshield.


CX-50 Hybrid models are distinguished from other CX-50 models with subtle styling cues, inside and out, including unique wheel designs, a different lower front bumper design, and the availability of a new red leather interior option.

The CX-50 Hybrid platform has been designed around the Toyota Hybrid System (THS), a powertrain package that is comprised of a 2.5L naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine, hybrid EV battery, three electric motors, Electronically-controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT), and standard Electric AWD (eAWD). This setup is good for 219 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque on regular 87-octane fuel. CX-50 Hybrid has an EPA estimated 38 MPG combined, which is about 40% improved compared to CX-50 2.5 S, this offers customers approximately $575 in fuel savings per year versus CX-50 2.5 S1.

Mazda engineers have calibrated even the finest details of the hybrid powertrain, such as the accelerator pedal response to offer the connected, responsive driving dynamics that CX-50 is known for. Additionally, the availability of tuned drive modes, such as Power or Trail, allow drivers to tailor their experience behind the wheel to match the situation at hand. Enough for hauling a pair of most kinds of jet skis or other smaller weekend toys, towing capacity is rated at 1,500 pounds on all Hybrid packages when equipped with Mazda genuine towing accessories.

With incredible chassis rigidity, deft steering and handling, and a keen emphasis on noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) attenuation, the CX-50 Hybrid offers a refined, smooth drive with great dynamics in the compact crossover hybrid segment.

Like other CX-50 models, CX-50 Hybrid places great emphasis on supporting the active lifestyles of the driver. To that end, the cargo area has been optimized around the placement of the hybrid battery in the rear section of the floor, maximizing available storage volume and the ability to fit large objects, like bicycles, inside. Combined with the generous list of available Mazda genuine accessories, CX-50 Hybrid can be the catalyst to going further and doing more.

Likewise, interior comfort is a strong focus on CX-50 Hybrid, with high quality materials, invigorating design, supportive seating front and rear, and a robust suite of features that customers will appreciate on both the everyday drive and during road trips and other excursions.
