Question: What is the Difference Between the CX-5 Touring vs. Grand Touring Trim?


Deciding between a 2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring vs. Grand Touring may be a tougher decision than it was choosing between the CX-5 vs. other compact crossover SUVs.

The Touring trim is a step up over the base Sport trim, and offers plenty of great features like LED headlights, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, radar cruise control, and lane departure warning.

Buyers do have the option of adding a 10-speaker Bose audio system, navigation, and power moonroof, along with a few other features as part of the Preferred Equipment Package. As you’ll see below, however, those features are standard on the Grand Touring trim.

The Grand Touring trim adds on to what the Touring trim offers, with a power moonroof, 8-way power driver seat with lumbar support and 2-position memory, navigation, 10-speaker Bose audio system, and more. A Premium Package adds an Active Driving Display with Traffic Sign Recognition, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, and windshield wiper de-icer.

No matter which trim you choose, though, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 offers incredible value and performance that you’re sure to love!
