2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
After test driving the Kia, Honda, Ford, Chevy Equinox the CX5 made it quickly to the top of my purchase list. It offered the style, comfort, more creature comforts and most importantly price. This vehicle is great handling and a pleasure to drive.
I simply love this vehicle. I traded my CRZ hybrid for Mazda so the gas mileage, regardless of what i bought, would never exceed my lil hybrid, but this is definitely worth the switch. I have room again!
The blind spot monitoring and backup camera were not a must have but since experiencing driving with systems i find i am relying on them more and more. Pretty cool. I love the power seats too.
The only minor drawback is the backseat head rests that do not fold like some of the other makes. No problem as they can be easily removed if hauling is required.
