At The Track In Testing
Mazda CX-5 2017 4-door SUV
The new 2017 Mazda CX-5 may look like the outgoing model, but the changes go deep and are, indeed, substantial. Although the styling updates may seem subtle, the new CX-5 is both longer and lower than the previous version. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mostly carries over; output for the 2017 model is 187 horsepower. A six-speed automatic is the only available transmission. The CX-5 is a strong competitor in the compact SUV category. Handling is responsive and enjoyable and the ride is significantly better, absorbing bumps well. The cabin is much quieter and interior quality proves a major upgrade. Soft touch surfaces, a few stitches and some chrome bits add some class. The seats are comfortable but it takes a learning curve to master the infotainment system. Pricing starts from $24,000 and reaches over $30,000 with the top trim. Mazda has hinted that a diesel engine will come to the U.S.
