Overall:

For starters, we bought the car. Although the Touring model we bought didnt have all the bells and whistles the BMW X3 we traded in, the CX-3 actually handles slightly better and is actually just as comfortable. Also went on 2 long road trips in it already and getting 28 mpg. I got tired of repairing the BMW. We previously had a Mazda 3 that was very reliable. Hopefully this one works out just as well for us.

Overall:

Like I had read in another review prior to buying one, the Mazda CX-5 does a great job at pretending to be luxury, and I have to agree because this car sure knows how to make an entrance anywhere you go and for a budget. The infotainment system could be better, and passenger and cargo space is below the competition. However, the quiet cabin, impressive suspension, and handling will easily make you forget that.

Quality does not feel as good as the Hyundai and the ride was not a smooth. Road noise was more the back seat was tighter on leg room.
