Overall:

Great horsepower combined with great gas mileage. Great value for price. Solid feel, solid handling and control. Styling and size a plus. Just would want a back hatch cover, minor issue.

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.
