The starting price for the base Sport model with a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive is now $22,695, including a $900 destination charge that accounts for its mid-year $20 price increase. It was previously $880.
Other trims get price bumps beyond the destination charge but they also get additional equipment.
New for the mid-model year is a standard rearview camera on all but the base manual-transmission model.
The 2016.5 CX-5 Touring models (starting at $26,115, including shipping) add standard navigation and heated front seats. CX-5 Grand Touring models ($33,770, including shipping) add navigation as standard equipment.
?The added content in 2016.5 CX-5 reflects our customers? tastes toward premium features,? said Robert Davis, Mazda senior vice-president of U.S. operations, in a statement.
Edmunds says: Such mid-model year changes are unusual, but the 2016.5 CX-5's additional standard features should be welcome by crossover shoppers.
