We all love a little more passing power and a little extra oomph when we need it. Mazda has made extra juice available in its highly rated, best-selling crossover with the addition of a turbocharger.

The base version of the Mazda CX-5 comes well-equipped with all-wheel drive, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and several of the amenities we’ve all come to expect in a $26,700 SUV.
