Pricing for the front-wheel-drive 2.0-litre Maxx starts at $30,980 before on-road costs for the six-speed manual, while a six-speed automatic transmission bumps up pricing to $32,980.

As for the automatic-only all-wheel-drive 2.5-litre version, the cost rises to $35,980.

Standard equipment on the CX-5 Maxx includes 17-inch steel wheels, LED headlights, six-speaker sound system, black cloth interior trim, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and push-button start.

The 2020 CX-5 Maxx also scores a larger 8.0-inch multimedia screen, up from the old 7.0-inch unit, which features Bluetooth and USB input capabilities.
