Mazda CX-5 Overview

For 2016 Mazda has updated its mainstay small SUV inside and out. It gets a more upright and pronounced grille and other visual tweaks, bringing it in line with the new Mazda3 and updated Mazda6. Where the exterior was lightly updated, the interior received a new center stack that gives it a far more upscale aesthetic. The new infotainment system consists of a rotary dial and a center screen, where all audio, phone, and navigation functions are controlled. It takes some time to master the system. The engine and transmission remain the same, but the new drive mode selector allows the driver to choose from economical and performance-oriented driving modes.
