Smaller then what I was used to with an Equinox. I felt cramped.

Overall:

One of the best rated CUV in its class. Spacious, comfortable, reliable and looks great. Drives wonderfully but I only gave it 4 stars because of the underpowered 2.0 engine. Nevertheless, my top pick for a crossover utility vehicle.

Overall:

The car is a good value but I would like to see it be a little more peppy. To be honest it’s really slow. But it has been getting really good mpg almost 30 in the winter. The awd got me to work and home safely. The options for these are rather spartan as it’s not near as loaded as the Subaru’s I have been driving for the last decade. But I didn’t get the highest model either of the Mazda. The cx5 seems to ride ok and drive fairly well. Just depends on what you are looking for I guess

The ride is Turner than expected. The Honda CR-V had a better feel on the road. The styling was very nice.

One The Surface It Appears To Have It All. — I purchased this car for my wife as a daily commuter vehicle as she drove 30-100 miles a day. We bought the absolute top model available for luxury and comfort and also providing safety. Parked the car has everything going for it. Tom Tom based Navigation, Good Sound system, Keyless entry & start, sunroof, stylish leather with red stitching, 19" alloys, Blind Side alert in the mirrors. My wife changed jobs, and I inherited the CX-5 and couldn't get over the dismal acceleration performance. It was so pitfull and worrisome for highway onramps, I ended up selling it within 9 months. Lack of reasonable acceleration is the only thing holding me back from recommending this vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: MSRP, Fuel Economy, Features

Cons: Acceleration is dismal

Very nice ride. A bit of engine noise, probably due to the 4cylinder. Comfortable, nice options.

The Carbon Edition is a very eye-catching vehicle. The red leather seats add that pop of color that sets it apart from others in the class. Lot of nice options not often found at this price point. De... Read More

I traded our 2016 Grand Touring for a 2021 CX5 Touring with out many of the options. Not a big fan of the navigation systems. We hope to get 200k miles as did with our 1994 Mazda B4000 pick up. Ran... Read More
