2021 Mazda CX-5 Towing Capacity & Equipment 

The Mazda CX-5 is a premium small SUV that delivers above-class performance at a mainstream-rivaling price. As athletic as it is attractive, the CX-5 also promises segment-leading road manners with just enough towing potential to make off on a weekend excursion. Just how much can the Mazda CX-5 tow? That’s the question we’re looking to answer in this crossover review. 

When properly equipped, all Mazda CX-5 trim levels can tow up to 2,000 lbs. This means you can bring along ATVs, dirt bikes, small fishing boats, pop-up campers, and more with ease when you’re out venturing around western Tennessee and beyond. Please note that this capacity shown is a maximum and must be reduced by the weight of any passenger, cargo hitch, or optional equipment on board. Please make sure your vehicle is properly equipped for towing before attempting to attach any trailer. You can check your Mazda’s owner’s manual for more details regarding towing capacities and other valuable information.

What Equipment Does the Mazda CX-5 Need to Handle Towing?

In order to tow with the Mazda CX-5, your vehicle must be equipped with a Class I trailer hitch and a four-pin trailer lighting connector so that people behind you know when you’re turning. Don’t have the parts? That’s okay! You can visit your local Mazda dealer for the Genuine Mazda Parts and installation services you need to get your CX-5 crossover hitch-ready.
