We believe that when it comes to the newer crossover SUV options on the market today, the 2017+ CX5 is the cream of the crop. The beautiful lines paired with Mazda’s attention to detail really make this vehicle shine. The 2.5-liter turbocharged version also provides you with a car that is as enjoyable to drive as it is beautiful. We believe that a car that looks good should sound good as well. Our mandrel-bent, 80mm polished stainless steel axle-back exhaust system will ensure you are seen AND heard. The dual 160mm resonators deliver a throatier exhaust note without drone or excessive noise.
The CorkSport 80mm axle back exhaust delivers some much needed volume to the exhaust note of the SkyActiv 2.5T. By replacing the large OEM muffler section with high flow, pass through resonators, you get a performance sound that is quiet under normal driving but wakes up when you get on the throttle. Best of all, the CS axle back is less restrictive than the OEM exhaust, helping your engine breath better. Check out the product video for sound clips!
The GEN 2 CX-5 looks great but is let down by the tiny OEM exhaust tips. The CS axle back exhaust uses enlarged 100mm, dual wall exhaust tips to really fill out the bumper cutouts and give you an upgraded, yet subtle look. The tips were also brought outward slightly, to further the visual benefit of the CorkSport axle back. It truly looks like the way it should’ve come from Mazda, but we didn’t, stop there. Finishing off the look are laser engraved CorkSport name badges for a classy aesthetic detail.
As with every CorkSport exhaust, the CX-5 axle back uses fully polished, mandrel bent, 304 stainless steel. These aspects ensure that your exhaust flows well, looks great, and will stand the test of time. Each joint is precision TIG welded, while the inlet flange is laser cut for optimum fitment. We also provide all the hardware and gaskets you need for install, along with full color instructions to ensure waking up your CX-5 is as easy as possible!
It will take you 2 hours to install the Mazda Performance CX5 Axleback Exhaust with our easy-to-use instructions.

Hi, I’d like to have the tips on this exhaust be black, any chance to order it that way? Thanks!
Sorry, custom tips are not an option at this time.
Hi! Is the $599 currency in CAD or USD?
All prices are in USD
Will this fit a 2023 CX-5 Carbon Edition?
Yes it will
Is this "Commiefornia approved", ( CARB compliant )
The exhaust is not CARB certified.
What are the power gains for the axle back exhaust with a 2022 CX-5 turbo?
Due to the distance between the motor and the axle back flange, any power gains would be negligible.
This fit CX5 turbo 2022?
Yes this fits all 2017+ CX5 models
Hi - have you confirmed fitment of this on a 2022 CX-5? I believe some minor changes were made to the bumper for this year and want to make sure it will still fit. Thanks!
It will fit with the OEM bumper on all late model CX-5s.
Will this fit the CX-50 Turbo?
The exhaust has not been fit to the CX50.
Will this fit a 2022 CX-5 Carbon Edition?
Yes, the Carbon Edition uses the same exhaust mounting locations as the other trim levels.
Would this fit 2010 cx7
No, we don't carry an exhaust for that model.
will this fit the 2021 2.5t AWD cx5?
Yes, it fits all the 4th gen model CX5s.
Do you have any video of non-turbo 2.5L CX-5 sound?
Watch the video on the 4th gen Mazda3 exhaust page, the blue hatch is a 2.5 NA https://corksport.com/2019-mazda-3-and-cx-30-axle-back-exhaust.html
Will this this fit on the skyactive diesel?
We don't get that motor here so are unable to verify fitment.
Is preordering available? Is August 18th an estimation or the actual date of availability?
8/18 is the preorder date, we will not be accepting orders before then. We will be filling orders as soon as we are able.
Will this fit on the 2019 CX-5 variant?
Yes, it is the same generation.
You moved release date on 2021 CX5 AWD TURBO ?
We don't have a release date scheduled at the moment.
What are the horsepower gains with the exhaust
We have not dyno tested the exhaust.
Will this void any kind of factory or extended warranty?
Technically this should only void the warranty on the exhaust you took off. However, dealers don't always play by the same rules. We recommend checking with your local dealer and seeing where they stand, or keeping the OEM parts for easy reinstall.
Is this compatible with ‘21 CX-5 GTR w/ Turbo?
Yes it will!
Would this interfere or be compatible with a standard trailer hitch install? CX5 hitch mounting points are right next to OEM exhaust and fit very close together.
We can't give an official answer as we have not fit it yet. I looked into a CX5 group on Facebook and the consensus is it should be fine, but we recommend reaching out to fellow owners and seeing what has been done successfully.
Is there any (noticable) weight difference between this and the OEM exhaust?
Yes, when you lift up the two you will feel a big difference
Will the CorkSport 80mm cat-back exhaust fit on a 2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring with the 2.5L engine ? Any complications ?
This Axle back is for the facelift CX5. It's not the right length for the previous gen model
Does this axle back exhaust fit the 2.0 liter NA engine exhaust system?
We have not tested the 2.0 yet as that is not an engine option here in the states. It Would probably fit, but we have no way to say for certain.
Will this also fit the non-turbocharged 2.5 CX-5?
Yes it will. Just know that it will be slightly louder on a non turbo model
Will your CX-5 exhaust fit with the factory hitch installed?
We have never tried, but customers have told us that they didn't have fitment issues with the hitch. Just know you are assuming the risk in case any modification may need to be done
2017 and up Mazda CX5 Skyactiv 2.5 Turbo
