How to Increase Your Fuel Economy in a 2020 Mazda CX-5

Tips on How to Optimize your Fuel Economy in Your 2020 Mazda CX-5

An important factor when purchasing a vehicle is its fuel economy. This is especially true when looking at small crossovers, such as the 2020 Mazda CX-5. And although it receives an estimated 28 combined MPG and is better than most other small crossover models, there is always a way to squeeze out even better numbers.  Here are a few ways to increase your Fuel Economy in a Mazda CX-5 (or any vehicle), courtesy of us at Bob Baker Mazda.

Ask Yourself If Your Ideal 2020 Mazda CX-5 Needs All-Wheel Drive

One major benefit of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is in its drive options.  The option to equip your vehicle with the renowned i-ACTIV AWD® system is available on lower trims.  It also comes standard in both the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels.  But adding the extra traction and support drops the gas mileage down to an estimated 24 combined MPG.  While the all-wheel drive system is ideal for some, you should think about how much you would take advantage of it.

Adjust Your Driving Habits

Once you do determine which 2020 Mazda CX-5 options are right for you, it may be time to adjust your driving habits.  Though the Mazda CX-5 has both a solid base and powerful 2.5L turbocharged engines, it’s only fair to admit that you should keep the following tips in mind:
  • Don’t Drive Over the Speed Limit
  • Maintain Proper Tire Pressure
  • Slowly Increase Speed Instead of Quickly Accelerating
  • Avoid Warming Your Car Up While You Wait
