2023 mazda cx 50 meridian edition

  • Mazda has announced details on the CX-50’s rugged-looking Meridian Edition package.
  • It costs $2800 on top of the 2.5 Turbo model and comes with all-terrain tires and appearance tweaks.
  • There’s also a Meridian Choice accessory package available for other CX-50s.

    When Mazda initially revealed the 2023 CX-50, it showed photos of the new compact crossover with all sorts of off-road accessories and special graphics. As it turns out, these extras are part of a package called the Meridian Edition, which costs $2800 on top of the 2.5 Turbo model and offers a few additional customization options.

    The CX-50 Meridian Edition comes in two colors—Zircon Sand or Polymetal Gray metallic—and has a Terracotta brown interior. The main upgrade is the set of 18-inch wheels and Falken all-terrain tires, and appearance upgrades include a different headlight surround, rocker panels, and a graphic on the hood. There are no changes to the suspension or the all-wheel-drive system, and the Meridian Edition has the same 256-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four as other CX-50 2.5 Turbo models.

    There’s also an Apex package available that adds roof-rack crossbars, a roof platform, splash guards, and a different hood graphic. It costs $1235 extra. All in, a CX-50 Meridian Edition will run $42,460.

    For those who want to add similar style to non-Meridian Edition versions of the CX-50, there’s an $1899 bundle of dealer-installed accessories called the Meridian Choice package. It has the same hood graphic, roof rack, roof platform, and some appearance tweaks from the Meridian edition.

    Otherwise, all 2023 Mazda CX-50 models receive a mid-year price increase of $750, meaning that it now carries a base price of $28,825 with the standard naturally aspirated engine.
