2024 Mazda CX-50 Is More Expensive, Gains New Suspension Dampers
The Mazda CX-50 gets a little more refined and somewhat more expensive for 2024.
Mazda’s latest compact crossover, the CX-50, is a critical darling – we certainly love it. For 2024, the model is getting a few updates and a higher price.
The 2024 Mazda CX-50 now starts at $31,675, including the $1,375 destination fee. That’s quite a bit higher than the $28,025 base price for examples of the 2023 model year cars. However, this is likely due to the fact that the base 2.5 S model has been dropped, making the 2.5 S Select the new entry-level model. Pricing is still up, though. The 2023 2.5 S Select was $2,250 cheaper than the 2024 model. The 2.5 S Preferred Plus model grade has also been dropped and replaced with the Preferred package which adds heated seats, mirrors, wipers, and a power liftgate. It too sees a price jump, costing $1,400 over the Preferred Plus model it replaced. All trims see at least a $350 price jump.
Pricing for all trims of the Mazda CX-50, including the $1,375 destination fee, is as follows:
- 2.5 S Select: $31,675
- 2.5 S Preferred: $33,025
- 2.5 S Premium: $36,525
- 2.5 S Premium Plus: $38,875
- 2.5 Turbo: $39,375
- 2.5 Turbo Meridian Edition: $42,175
- 2.5 Turbo Premium: $42,675
- 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus: $44,675
There are more substantial upgrades under the skin, too. The Mazda CX-50 gets new suspension dampers for improved ride quality. It also gets a recalibrated electric power steering system, both of which will be installed on vehicles made from November onward of this year.
The bump in price and removal of the very base trim does mean the Mazda CX-50 gets more standard equipment. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
