Exemplary vehicle - Mazda sets the standard again.

2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
Its hard to come by a crossover SUV which gives exceptional mileage combined with excellent sports-car like driving dynamics and styling all at a competitively great price. Its just a practical and fun to drive car with a brand new Skyactiv engine & 6-speed transmission along with impressive interior space & wheelbase. The tactile steering feedback is excellent. I really like the blind spot monitoring feature. The interior is simple and elegant with high quality materials. The GT Technology package is not necessary in my opinion. Even though it only has 155HP power, you can feel what the Mazda engineers have tried to achieve in this vehicle with the SkyActive engine and suite of technologies
Excellent sporty driving dynamics, fuel economy, styling, space
Can use a bit more power and chrome window & door linings
