2023 Mazda CX-50 - Performance, Prices, and Photos

2023 Mazda CX-50 - Performance, Prices, and Photos

Mazda’s low-key off-roader is more capable than what your average mid-size SUV can do

A new SUV joins Mazda’s current line-up, and it is an essential model for the Japanese brand. The CX-50 is not entirely based on the already popular CX-5, but has a lot of similarities, like the powertrains and the cabin components. Things that make the CX-50 special are its aggressive stance, ruggedness, better cabin space, improved off-road capabilities, and towing capacity. In simpler words, it will go head-to-head with the Hyundai Tucson, the Toyota RAV4, and the Subaru Outback. For the powertrain choices, like always, you will have the CX-50 with a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-pot, and a turbocharged version of the same. Both are quite potent and will drive all four wheels by default. The new CX-50 is selling side-by-side with the CX-5, but the former is much better in terms of overall looks, is more compliant for off-roading, and is slightly bigger. So, should you consider the CX-50 without comparing it to its prime rivals? Well, here’s your answer.

2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II - What You Need to Know

Rolls-Royce has rejigged the Phantom for the 2023 model year, but the changes aren’t too significant

2022 Infiniti QX55 vs 2022 Infiniti QX50

2022 Infiniti QX55 vs 2022 Infiniti QX50

Apart from the looks, there are a few major differences that make them unique.

SUVs are the new norm but how about coupe-SUVs? Yes, they are seamlessly attractive vehicles for whom practicality and sleek coupe-like design matter. Infiniti recently launched a more advanced and more performance-centric SUV which is heavily based on the entry-level QX50 but has a higher price tag (of course), is more coupe-like, has engine hardware and software refinements, has more standard features, and of course a better interior experience including a refined ride quality. But that makes the QX50 inferior, right? Not exactly. The QX50 is a proper compact SUV with a lot of “goods” for the price like its meticulously crafted cabin, loads of features on offer, and everything feels right except for the dual infotainment displays which might be fiddly to use on the go. For the 2022 model year, Infiniti has added the ProPilot Assist suite for all the trims, made wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility too, and a few added features sprinkled across all five trims. So if both of them have already impressed you, which one would be your pick?

Polestar has gone above and beyond to create an affordable EV that’s tech savvy, practical, and safe

Once Volvo’s version of the AMG, Polestar has made a name for itself as the new EV division for Volvo. The first Polestar showed the market what a sports EV sedan should look like, and the new one is not any different.
