Most people probably don't picture anything from Mazda when they hear the words "rugged off-road SUV." Not a single model in the automaker's lineup shouts "take me off the beaten path," but rather a plethora of sleek, entertaining-to-drive cars and SUVs that are specifically designed for usage on paved roads. It appears that there is some space for that to alter given that Mazda has spent the last few generations redefining itself as a value-luxury brand and is relying less on its motorsport heritage. The 2023 Mazda CX-50, a more powerful CX-5 replacement, will be followed by the release of the CX-50 Meridian Edition, which Mazda claims is "made for the most adventurous consumers."

The Meridian Edition includes a number of visual modifications to the base CX-50 2.5 Turbo model in addition to two performance enhancements that should somewhat improve its off-road capability. The matte-black hood graphic, hefty rocker panels, and distinctive headlight garnish are the package's most striking additions.

There are two distinct exterior paint colors available: "Polymetal Gray" and "Zircon Sand," while the inside only comes in Mazda's seductive Terracotta leather with black accents. All Meridian kits have Mazda's "i-Activ" AWD technology as standard equipment; this is a great inclusion since AWD is always useful for gaining traction on slick roads. A pair of 18-inch gloss black "outdoor-focused" wheels with all-terrain Falken tires support that arrangement. The "Apex" option, which features roof-mounted black crossbars, a roof platform to secure additional gear or a tent, and splash guards, is available for those who want more equipment (front and back).

Even while they are not many off-road improvements, they are still better than nothing. We suppose we shouldn't have too high of expectations because Mazda is only beginning to dip its toes in the off-roading pool (or mud). We are interested to see how the Meridian Edition package performs against similar products in its class, such as the Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road, at an MSRP of $41,225 (including destination cost).
