Mazda CX-5 Overview
The CX-5 has taut, agile handling and quick, well-weighted steering. But we found the ride to be choppy, and the cabin lets in too much road and wind noise. The 2.0-liter and the more responsive 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines returned a very competitive 25-mpg overall in our tests. The 2.0-liter, available only with front-wheel drive, is slow at launch and requires prodding to keep up with traffic. The 2.5-liter provides noticeably quicker acceleration. The six-speed automatic is fairly smooth; a six-speed manual is available on base versions. The interior is roomy and versatile, with simple controls, but cheap touches are evident. Reliability has been above average. Updates for the 2016 model year include a new audio system with a controller knob.
