SKYACTIV Gets 2013 Mazda CX-5 Best-In-Class MPG
The 2013 Mazda CX-5 is a breath of fresh air in the stuffy compact SUV segment. The CX-5 doesn’t just look like a sporty crossover, thanks to its sleek, aerodynamic body; it also plays the part by generating about 155 hp and 150 lb.-ft. of torque.
Most importantly, at a time when money is as tight as it gets for so many Americans, Mazda’s CX-5 enters the market as the number one most affordable compact SUV in the segment with MSRP starting as low as $20,995.
Where things get even better for your wallet? The 2013 Mazda CX-5 has EPA-estimated best-in-class fuel economy. At 35 mpg highway, the CX-5 leads all SUVs in bang for the buck at the pump—more than even hybrid SUVs—thanks to Mazda’s award-winning SKYACTIV technology. A study shows that over the course of 15,000 miles driven with an average gas price of $4/gallon, the savings behind the wheel of a CX-5 can total up to anywhere between $716.18 and an incredible $1,293.10 when compared to other SUVs on the market.
Say you want to take the kids on a trip this summer but are afraid of using that vacation fund. The 2013 Mazda CX-5, winner of the 2013 KBB 5-Year Cost to Own Award, and SKYACTIV technology help to justify a little bit of well-deserved summer fun by easing the pain at the pump. That’s not pocket change; that’s budget changing savings.
