2014 Mazda CX-5: Road Trip Fuel Economy

May 22, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

After nearly 900 miles of California and Arizona desert driving — including windy stretches in 100-plus degree heat with bikes on the rack — our long-term Mazda CX-5 averaged 23.9 mpg. Its best tank was 29.3 mpg on a largely downhill stretch. Its worst tank was 20.6 mpg in the wind and heat.

This is better than our CX-5's lifetime average of 22.1 mpg.
