2013 Mazda CX-5 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Purchased this shortly after they arrived in US.
Decided on Mazda over CRV to be different.
Also like BSM and that the better radio/speakers can be added to the mid level Touring model.
Wife is primary driver and she is getting about 26.5 MPG w/ 30 mile city daily commute.
Also very comfortable on highway.
Noise level is very acceptable.
Now that my wife has driven this a lot she likes it more and more compared to 2001 Town & Country which was actually a very quiet and competant driving vehicle.

Best Features

BSM and ability to disable BSM. I disable when towing bicycles due to false reading from bike wheels. Bose HD radio choices are good in Chicago area. Back up camera and warning grid on back up view. Very comfortable cloth seats. Bluetooth phone system. Very nice handling. Low readings from Tach when cruising at up to 80 MPH

Worst Features

Cargo area is small compared to all others in class but that is not something that should necessarily change. I feel that the night display from information screen should be able to be brighter.
