2016 Mazda CX-5 Review
says:
Nice handling car and was my first choice until I drove the RAV4 Hybrid. CX-5 needs to step up the HP if you live in hilly or mountains.

Overall:

Fantastic - A Driver's Cuv — Only had it a short time but I love it more every day. A real blast to drive but great for the every day too. The 2016 Grand Touring 19" wheels are really nice, Technology Package LED lighting is really sharp and quite bright, and I love the radar cruise control.

Pros: Fun to drive, economical, technology and options usually reserved for more expensive vehicles.

Cons: No heated steering wheel or driver's seat memory position (unless you live outside of North America).

What a great SUV. Test drove every SUV in this size and the Mazda by far handled and performed the best. I was leaning toward a Rogue until driving the CX-5 and then there was no comparison after that. Just a great value.

2016 Mazda CX-5 Sport Review
says:
This was the perfect car for me. I test drove three different years and three different trims of CX-5, and when the 2016.5 Sport offered the backup camera standard and Mazda offered $2000 cash back, I had to buy it. I am putting drove instead of own here because mine is currently being shipped -- its a crystal white pearl mica exterior and sand interior, which is rare enough that the nearest new one was almost 350 miles away. Fun fun drive, and the white/sand looks sharp!

Cargo Capacity Ranked 2015 Mazda MAZDA3 i Sport worse.
"Its pretty obvious, the CX-5 has a lot better cargo capacity (I compared it to the hatchback). You could probably haul a range or a washing machine in there. The CR-V has a bit better cargo space, but not as fun to drive, and I only haul things occasionally."
Would Buy Ranked 2015 Mazda MAZDA3 i Sport worse.
"Other than the price and a tiny bit of handling and pep, the CX-5 is superior in space, comfort, visibility, and hauling capacity, plus you can get features (AWD for example) not available on the Mazda3."

I test drove and bought a 2016 Mazda Sport from a Car Gurus listing. I found the experience to be easy, fast, and free.
