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


I own a CX5 AWD with a hitch. I have reviewed this car when it was new and I am now reviewing it after one years worth of driving.
The most impressive feature for me is the outstanding gas mileage in this car. I recently hyper- tested my mileage for about 100 miles over flat and/or gently rolling country roads with a fair amount of traffic and squeezed about 40 MPG from the car. I average 35mpg normally. The info gauge seemed slightly generous with a reading of about 45mpg. I set the info gauge to averaging mode which is a little confusing as to how it calculates it's figure but I'm not complaining too much. The handling is outstanding although over bumpy road conditions it is a bit harsh.

Best Features

Style, handling and gas mileage.

Worst Features

The fold down seats in the back could lay flatter. The radio shuts off when turning off the engine and to get it back on is a wait of a few seconds. The key fob shape is not user friendly (the lock & unlock buttons are identical in shape/feel).
