2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)

Review

Have own our 2014 AWD GT for 3000 miles. Very happy with the car. Wanted to write a review cause it was the many reviews on Edmunds that eventually helped me select the CX-5 over the Forester. CX-5 (in my opinion) just handles better. Tracks real well, very stable. Soaks up more bumps and noise better than the Forester. Brakes well, handled very well in snow and rain. Forester - can't beat the wonderful and huge sunroof, visibility MUCH better - CX-5 needs more attention. Better heated seats on the Forester. Bottom line - Mazda offered better trade, finance, car better handling. Couldn't pass up - just more bang for the buck.

Favorite Features

Handling, comfort, sound system. Safety - great crash tests (just make sure bought after Dec 2013). Excellent mpg - getting 32 on highway in the warmer weather, upper 20s in city. MPG less in the winter. Keyless entry, blind spot monitoring.

Suggested Improvements

Larger sunroof, better rear lighting, warmer heated seats. Visibility will not be like the Forester - just the styling.
