Bought the Touring model of the CX-5 only because it has the bigger 2.5 liter engine.
The extra 30 horsepower in the Touring and Grand Touring model really make a difference when driving.
The Sport model is nice, but the engine makes the vehicle just average.
Mazda has a winner here in the CUV division and I would recommend this SUV to anyone over the Forde Escape or Honda CR-V that are it's main competitors.
This market is competitive and Mazda has what I think is the winner when buying the bigger engine.
The 2.5 liter 185 horsepower 4 cylinder engine.
The vehicle drives like a car not a CUV.
Design is market leading in my opinion.
The vehicle also has nice standard features including Blue Tooth, Power driver seat, Touch screen for radio, Rear back up camera, and Alloy wheels.
Air vents on center console need a bigger range of movement so taller drivers can get the air to blow in their face.
Other than that ... nothing.
