A small crossover SUV, the Mazda CX-5 offers plenty of space and versatility, high fuel economy and strong crash test scores. But the CX-5 is also quite enjoyable to drive, which could very well give it the edge with car shoppers who want a little something extra from their small crossover.
In reviews, we've found the Mazda CX-5 nimble and enjoyable to drive. This crossover's brakes, suspension and steering are uncommonly capable, and in general the CX-5 is downright fun and confidence-inspiring to drive around corners. Inside the CX-5, the cabin is attractive, modern and functional. Seating is comfortable both front and rear, and there's plenty of cargo space, especially in versions equipped with the 40/20/40-split rear seat.
