2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
I am a new owner of the CX 5. I test drove the other small SUVs like the CRV but when I drove the CX 5 it was miles above the others in handling. It feels like you are glued to the road. The build quality is excellent. The Bose sound system is time to party on ... no band needed. The safety features like the blind spot sensors are just another added detail to one fine car. I recommend if you are in the market for a small SUV /crossover try driving the CX 5. Have fun out there and keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
Handling = car and driver are one
Hightech engine and transmission design
Sound system / Bose
Rear cargo cover hooked to rear door so when door opens the cover moves out of the way.
I just read the latest Car and Driver Magizine. They compared CX-5 to other SUVs inlcuding the CRV, Escape, RAV4 and you guessed it,
the CX-5 was rated number one overall. If you looking at these cars see the review. The excitment continues.
Later.. keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.
