With the updated design, the new technologies, the improved materials used throughout a cabin, the new Mazda CX-5 could actually pose the threat for premium-branded models in the compact segment.
This is the Consumer Reports’ conclusion after reviewing the Japanese SUV, which was found to be not only the good-looking, but also better to drive than its predecessor.
Moreover, sound proofing has been significantly improved, and has the ride comfort and steering, the fact that it gets low-speed automatic emergency braking as standard on the all versions made it win extra brownie points.
Still, it is not all gold stars when it comes to Mazda’s all-new CX-5, and as its infotainment system could get some time to get used to, a six-speed manual transmission isn’t exactly brilliant, the 2.5-liter SkyActiv engine that delivers 187 horsepower and 185 lb-ft (251 Nm) of torque to a standard FWD or optional AWD, is actually carried over from the older generation.
Seen here is a Grand Touring variant, which costs upwards of $29,395, adds features such as 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, power liftgate, power moonroof, rearview camera, leather seats, voice command, Bose premium audio system and dual-zone climate control.
