Recently, Mazda discontinued the CX-9 to make room for the larger and more expensive CX-90.

With the release of the CX-50, it is logical to assume that the CX-5 would suffer

the same fate—the old guard would be replaced to make room for its new sister.

Mazda has not yet disclosed the CX-5's destiny. After using the 2023 CX-50 for a week

it's clear why. Although cannibalizing your own client base with two identical compact SUVs

may not seem like a smart business move, the CX-5 nevertheless stands taller than its new sister.
