Fun but gutless
By shierwarter on


2013 Mazda CX-5 Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


I have had my CX-5 since June, and have had fun driving this car with the 6-speed manual transmission.
While it is gutless going uphill, mostly I don't notice the lack of power.
I tend to get around 31mpg overall, and I'm pretty happy with that.

Two things... I wish that the great blue color was available on the 6-speed (my choices were black, silver and grey) and I wish that there was better accessibility in the back seat.
My mom rides back there sometimes, and it's hard for her to get in and out.

Best Features

the 6-speed transmission, the stylish exterior, and the START button.

Worst Features

better color choices for the 6-speed vehicles, and that nifty auto opening gate that Ford just introduced would be killer!
