Recently purchased a 2014 CX-5 Sport AWD, as we were looking to get into the vehicle on a tight budget. So far so good.
Love the ride and handling.
I am surprised so many have commented that the 2.0 L engine is
underpowered; it is not.
Not by a long shot.
Test drove the 2.5 L and 2.0 L and found that the 2.0 L was plenty punchy to get up to speed on the freeway without too much engine groan. This is coming from someone who has driven an overpowered V6 Rav4 for six years.
Its lower cost and better MPG make the 2.0 L a good choice for many.
Just disappointed the Sport is not trimmed out better. Will find out how reliable the vehicle is.
Averaging 31.5 MPG in mixed driving.
Getting about 34 MPG on the highway.
Handles like a car, much better than the Rav4.
Better door handles (like the Rav4). Wish we had rear privacy glass (not standard on the Sport). Wish the rear seats reclined.
