The Mazda CX-5 has received countless favourable reviews from motoring journalists, owners and everyday drivers over the past 10 years.
What they like most are its style, colours (especially the Soul Red Crystal Metallic) and size, along with its comfortable interior, smooth handling and its price. They also remark on its excellent fuel economy.
The CX-5 comfortably seats five people and the rear seats fold down to increase the boot size from 442L to 1342L, and the tailgate has hands-free operation.
Top tech safety inclusions include: High Beam Control (HBC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), Tyre Pressure Monitor (TPMS) and Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) as standard across the range.
All-wheel-drive models have Mazda's i-Activ AWD, which uses real time data from 27 different sensors or signals to monitor, predict and respond to even the slightest change in driving conditions. Combined with the new Off Road Mode switch drivers can experience excellent traction, grip and connection to the road.
In particular, the Akera Turbo model has been praised for its power - the ability to effortlessly cruise along with a full load of passengers and their luggage - rather than having neck-breaking acceleration.
And all models have rated well for their interior fit-out and upholstery.
Many owners say the CX-5 feels like a luxury car but costs a fraction of the price. Some go so far as to say they wouldn’t change anything about the car.
All agree the CX-5 is a pleasure to drive – in the city and country.
