This vehicle is the best in its category. I test drove many other similar small SUVs, and the quality of this one exceeded all of them for the price. This vehicle was at least $3,000 cheaper than similar makes, and the quality of this was superior to them all. Specifically, the handling and driving of this car was much better. It is only a four cylinder, but it does not drive like it because of the power behind it. Plus, the steering is just right- not too loose or too tight. The other competitors were very doggy and slow to accelerate. Plus, the gas mileage on the CX-5 was comparable or better to the competitors. The cabin is also quiet and the tan interior option automatically came with leather with quick acting heated seats, which are especially nice in the winter.
Story
We used this vehicle to buy a baby pool for our son. The pool was too big to put in the cargo area, so me and my husband held it on the roof of the car, each with one hand on the one-mile journey home from the store.
Pros
The CX-5 has amazing gas mileage, about 30mpg avg when I drive it. Beautiful tan leather interior with fast acting heated seats. Easy to clean interior carpet and dash. Power, steering, and handling are much better than competitors-it's actually fun to drive. Has a mean looking exterior and is more updated looking than competitors.
Cons
There are a few tiny rust dots on the back bumper of the vehicle, assuming they came from transportation on a train. Sometimes when I press on the gas, the car can lurch forward, as it it's not in the correct gear. The seats aren't very comfortable after a 3hr+ road trip.

2017 Mazda CX-5 - The car is fairly well made. I do not hear any internal rattling having driven over 30,000 miles. However, when driving at a speed over about 50 mph, you can hear the wind easily. The audio of the car is decent but seems to muffle at very high volume leve

I really like the style of the vehicle, it looks great both internally and externally. I dislike the lighter cloth seats in my car as they get dirty really easily and detract from the overall look. I like the feel of the drive, it seems sporty when driving. However, I dislike the feeling when the car is decelerating on its own. When you let go of the gas and aren't pressing the brake you can feel the car drag almost, a feeling I haven't felt driving a car before.
Story
My Mazda helped bring me to my first ever triathlon, transporting my bike I needed for the race. It helped support my addiction to triathlons I now have!
Pros
I love the height of the car, being higher on the road. I also love the versatility of the back seats being able to be easily laid down to increase the square footage of the backseats. This allows me to load lots of things in my back seat and really make moving easy with all the space. I like the backup camera as it really makes the driving experience easier. I also like the feel of driving the vehicle, you feel connected to the road.
Cons
One con is the light cloth seats of the car, they get dirty easily and detract from the look. The biggest con of the car is when lowering the back seats to increase the trunk size, you have to remove the headrests of the back row. It is a pain to have to remove the headrests every time when collapsing the back row and it really should be designed so that is not required every time.

Would we buy one? Yes.

Vehicle Type: 4-door, 5-seat compact crossover.

Price Range: Pricing for the base Sport model Mazda CX-5 begins at an MSRP of $24,985, the mid-tier Touring model starts at $26,885, and top-tier Grand Touring trim starts at $30,355. Prices include destination charges, but no optional equipment.

A 6-speed automatic transmission handles shifting in both standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive.

Competitors: Honda CR-V, Jeep Cherokee, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, Hyundai Santa Fe, Nissan Rogue, and Volkswagen Tiguan.


Overall Score: 7.7/10

Safety Features: 7/10

Standard safety features on all Mazda CX-5 models include front and side airbags, stability control, rear view camera, and Smart City Brake Support, which can automatically apply the brakes to avoid low-speed collisions.

More safety equipment is available on Touring and Grand Touring trim level CX-5s. This includes rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control.

The IIHS awarded the 2017 Mazda CX-5 a Top Safety Pick+ when properly equipped. In IIHS crash tests, the CX-5 received the highest Good rating, however the NHTSA rates the Mazda CX-5 only 4 of 5 stars due to rear seat, side impact results.


Value: 8/10

The Mazda CX-5 Sport trim offers quality value at a reasonable price. It comes equipped with air conditioning, keyless entry, and push button start, along with other tech and safety features mentioned elsewhere in this article.

The CX-5 touring trim adds standard dual-zone climate control with rear vents, heated front seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, power adjustable driver's seat, and leatherette upholstery.

Top-of-the-line Grand Touring Trim includes a sunroof, leather seats, and makes many optional features available. For a near luxury experience at a compelling value, select the Premium Package which adds a heated steering wheel and rear seats. It's not just about the features though; the design, materials, and quality in the Mazda CX-5 feels above the rest of the class, while pricing is in line with the competition.


Tech Features: 8/10

A 7.0-inch touchscreen runs the infotainment system on all trim levels of the Mazda CX-5, which is Bluetooth and hands-free voice control capable. Other standard tech includes a 4 speaker audio system, 2 front seat USB ports, an auxiliary jack, and HD Radio. Even the base Sport trim can be optioned with a built in navigation system, a feature often reserved for higher trims.

The middle-tier Touring trim adds 2 additional speakers, 2 USB ports for rear seat passengers as standard features, and opens up an optional Bose 10 speaker sound system, and power liftgate. In Grand Touring trim, the Bose audio system and power liftgate become standard, as well as satellite radio.


Practicality: 7/10

Mazda worked hard to make the new CX-5 more practical than the outgoing model. That includes true fold-flat rear seats, and more rear seat adjustment. The Mazda CX-5 also has more storage spaces throughout the cabin to hold personal items.

The Mazda CX-5, though improved, still trails class leaders in rear seat legroom, and overall space. Though, with 30.9 cubic feet of space behind the seats, and nearly 60 cubic feet with the seats folded away, the CX-5's fun to practicality ratio is actually quite solid.


Styling & Design: 8/10

Mazda fully redesigned the interior and exterior of the CX-5 for the 2017 model year. The exterior has a larger grille with a bit of a forward tilt, for a very aggressive look, complimented by newly designed LED headlights.

Inside, the Mazda hits above its class with one of the best designed and most refined interiors available. Mazda also made several changes including more sound deadening and new door seals, to bring cabin noise down to luxury levels of quiet. The interior is well thought out, and as previously mentioned, feels near-luxury. One mark against the CX-5 is its slightly cramped backseat, not as roomy as many in the compact SUV segment.


Driving Experience: 9/10

The Mazda CX-5 delivers best-in-class handling. The suspension is well tuned to deliver a smooth ride, but also genuinely great steering. Mazda's G-vectoring Control uses tricky tech to deliver sporty, almost carlike, levels of precision.

Aside from handling, the 2.5 liter, 4-cylinder engine is slightly underpowered, especially against turbo options in the segment, making the Mazda CX-5 feel slow in a straight line. Reviewers like the crisp shifting of the six-speed automatic, a bright spot especially when compared to competitors with a CVT.


Fuel Efficiency: 7/10

The Mazda CX-5 gets an EPA estimated fuel economy of 31 mpg highway, 24 mpg city, and 27 combined mpg in standard FWD trim.

When optioned with AWD drivetrain, the Mazda CX-5's fuel economy drops lightly to 29 hwy mpg, 23 city, and 26 combined.
