2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD: Auto Show "Twin"
November 28, 2013
You may well be asking yourself how our long-term 2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD found its way to the floor of the L.A. Auto Show.
It's not ours, of course. (Though ours was technically at the show, albeit in the parking lot.)
The crossover pictured here is a 2014 Mazda CX-5 Touring FWD, which has an MSRP of $25,710. Our Grand Touring, with AWD and a lot of very nice extras, pencils out at $31,890. The lovely Soul Red Mica adds $300 to the price of the car, by the way.
When you set a budget for a new car, do you find yourself lured by amenities that lead to price creep?
