Diesel power has been ditched for the 2024 CX-5 lineup, with pricing now starting from $36,560 before on-road costs for the midsize SUV 

Mazda has detailed its pricing and specification of its midsize CX-5 SUV for 2024, with entry price now sitting at $36,560 before on-road costs for the front-wheel drive CX-5 Maxx. 

Pricing stretches as high as $54,970 before on-road costs for the all-wheel drive CX-5 Akera turbo-petrol. 

Prices are up by as much as $1220 on the outgoing 2023 Mazda CX-5, with the lowest price increase being $970.

The first of the updated SUVs are expected to arrive in January 2024. 

For the CX-5, Mazda has removed the option of a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that produced 140kW/450Nm and offered a claimed average fuel economy of 5.7L/100km. 

The Mazda CX-5 competes with other midsize SUVs such as the popular Toyota RAV4, the Hyundai Tucson and the Volkswagen Tiguan

The Mazda CX-5 continues to sell well in its segment, with a total of 16,895 units shifted so far in 2023. However, the CX-5 was still some way behind the very popular Toyota RAV4 (22,388 units sold so far in 2023).
