In a marketplace where all small SUVs start to look the same, the Mazda CX-5 offers an alternative. Agile handling, sporty looks, and a well-trimmed interior make the CX-5 feel somewhat less utilitarian than many rivals. Add in very good fuel economy, a roomy interior and a generous array of features, and the Mazda CX-5 ranks in the top tier of small SUVs. True, a noisy cabin and choppy ride can be nuisances.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"Very smooth transmission; predictable and secure handling; excellent power to gas mileage compromise"

DANIEL D., PA (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"All good so far. Comfortable ride on the 17in tires. I only have minor complaints overall. There is a reflection in the drivers mirror from the silver trim around the dash vent - annoying more than anything. The engine starts loud but I heard about this complaint before purchase - not a major issue for me, the vehicle is quiet once warmed up."

"GREAT DRIVING DYNAMICS AND ROAD FEEL"

STEVE W., NY (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"excellent to park short turning radius sport great for hills mountains it does not need to shift gears"

GERALD M., ON (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"Some road noise and wind noise at highway speed."

TERRY S., FL (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"I don't understand the "sport mode". Was told that it improves handling, but all it does is keep the RPM's at a high speed. And, was also told that pushing down on the gas pedal all the way to tap the "button" to go back down a shift for improved acceleration is practicality non-existent. The car feels shaky and stutters to get where it should be. Normal driving is fine."

DOUG W., AZ (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"Very agile handling, nicely weighted and responsive steering. The six speed automatic transmission acts like a dual clutch gearbox above 8mph so you get responsiveness without jerkiness at low speeds."

Peter Z., PA (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"I like the handling and how the car hugs the road - specially when in LA twisty roads. You can feel the car and when you're at the edge. During rain it helps that you can feel the road. However, this is also it's fault as you feel the road, bumps, road noise. The acceleration is good to adequate. When I need more power I flip it to Sport Mode. This SUV drives like a small car! They could improve on road noise, isolation, damping. But if these are at the expense of handling I would rather take the handling as this aspect gives me confidence in the driving."

Anonymous, MA (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"I have driven this vehicle on two extended trips. The seats are comfortable; better than my Lexus, as is the ease of use of the nav. system. Navigation screen should be larger and cover a greater geological area. The air conditioner should put out more cold air. Mazda should add a power lift to this vehicle."

GLENN R., NV (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"I like the CX-5 overall but there are small details that they could improve. The seats are not as high comparing to other SUV in the same segment, it also not the most comfortable. Same with the noise, it is definitely more quiet than some other SUVs such as RAV4 but not the best you could get. In the other hand, driving experience is good thanks to the low center gravity."

KHOA B., TX (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"Seats are not as comfortable as the 2001 Subaru Forester this car replaces. Has limited adjustment parameters at second trim level. Seats are nowhere near as good as our Kia Sedona van. Rest of ride characteristics are very good. Car is fun to drive."

KRIS S., MD (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"The seat came unraveled but the dealer replaced the cover with no hassle. The ride is a little stiff in comparison to my last car (Honda crv), also the cabin is a little loud with obvious outside wind noise. Lastly, the radio HD channels drop out constantly in this area. It is considerably zipper than my crv was and gas Milage and style are much better"

SARAH L., NY (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"Sometimes there is a hesitation in pick-up when entering a highway. The arm rests are too short for my comfort. I am short and when I push the seat up, the arm rests are non-existent. The passenger front floor board is too narrow to sit and cross your legs, right over left, comfortably. You foot rest on the under dash console."

Disappointed in the climate control. My Mazda 5, which was several thousand cheaper has controls that you set to a temperature eg: 65, 72, 80. The CX5 only has an idiot knob that goes from blue to red. For the price they should have at least matched the "5" control system that I have always been very pleased wit"

"Overall, for transporting adults, the CX-5 is very comfortable and decently roomy. However, we've discovered that its downfall comes when you try hauling two adults in the front seats with two rear-facing convertible car seats behind them - there just isn't enough room and the adults end up with their knees in the dash. I was shocked recently to find there is more room for the same exact car seats in the rear of a Honda Civic than my CX-5...which is making me contemplate trading this vehicle. Consequently, we've been driving our older vehicle, a 2011 Honda Accord far more often because its just more comfortable for my wife and I with the kids in the back."

"Seats are comfortable and adjustable. I have driven this car to Florida and back (e.g., about 1,800 miles) and the seating was very comfortable. Ride noise is acceptable. This is a convertible after all and is noiser than a sedan would be. The ride is comfortable and taunt. It's a sports car and you always fee like you, the driver, is in control."

What Owners Say

"Very nice but deals are not as good as other brands. Ends up a bit more expensive on initial and financing costs over payment term of the note."

Anonymous, WY (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"I owned a Honda Odyssey. It is hard to compare after that wonderful car. But I no longer needed that size, or the expense entailed in replacing the Honda. It was 11 yrs old and needed to be replaced. The Mazda was a safe, reliable (although boring) choice. I trust the dealer I bought it from and that is very important to me. I will never see the salesman again, but I will see the service manager. So that is the good part of the value of this car."

JUDITH B., WI (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"The Mazda CX-5 comes in several trim levels and costs. Still, each has standard safety equipment. That being said, the Grand Touring Mazda’s top trim level, is priced thousands lower than other compact SUV’s in the same size and category."

Patricia L., CA (2016 Mazda CX-5)

"The CX-5 is overall a pretty good value (as long as you don't plan on toting toddlers in rear facing car seats around) as it offers a fantastic powertrain with plenty of power (especially in sport mode) along with decent amounts of space, okay fuel economy, and fantastic handling to go with the power. It's no Miata, but it is the Miata of SUVs in my opinion. The 40/20/40 split folding rear seat is something I wish was offered on ALL vehicles, including sedans...its fantastically useful when you have something skinny and long to bring home from IKEA, Home Depot, or Lowe's and you don't want to remove the child seats...this is seriously a feature which makes me want to keep this vehicle over trading back in for a Civic or Accord (because Honda just seems to have a knack at making reliable vehicles that have space where you need it while Mazda makes reliable vehicles that lack space where I need it)"
