Former Cadillac CTS Owner Goes SUV
By wuffb on
Vehicle
2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
Review
Okay, so I came from a 2008 Cadillac CTS and LOVED that car . . . but kids got bigger, stuff got bigger . . . you know the deal . . . needed a vehicle that could be fun and practical. Looked at so many cars including CTS wagon . . . kept coming back to "why spend so much?" Looked at RDX, Highlander (another favorite) but all the SUV's kept coming in with bad gas mileage unless you bought the hybrid. On a whim I came across from Acura to the Mazda dealer and sat in a CX 5. It had features I wanted . . . a great Bose system, bi-xenon adaptive headlights, navi, etc. No, I won't win any races . . . but it really is fun to drive!
Favorite Features
Better Bose system than my Caddy CTS. BiXenon adaptive headlights like my Caddy. 40/20/40 Rear seat is Genius. Excellent Navi and iPod Integration. Best Brakes I have EVER had in a car . . . including Audi, Acura, Cadillac, etc. A "practical" vehicle that is truely fun to drive.
Suggested Improvements
A little more power . . . but honestly, just took a trip with car loaded - family, gear, etc. and had NO Problem cruising at 70+ while getting 30+MPG . . . WOW!
