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


Bought for family of four.
Shopped a lot!
Once we decided we were okay with less seating capacity and overall size v. the Ford Explorer, Traverse, etc., the search continued for similar SUV feel on smaller scale, including lower price.
Looked at Edge, really liked drive, but had to go with used and not so great gas mileage.
So, on to the Equinox and Escape.. the Chevy just felt cramped.. even though good looking it just wasn't doing it for me on interior.
The advertised prices led us to CX-5 v Escape.. The CX5 just felt right on interior roomy space, comfort and ease/simplicity of dash.Yet had enuf cool features to feel modern and plush. Awesome gas mileage too!! That alone should sell!

Best Features

Cavernous, easy to access rear hatch. Seat comfort.. we have cloth seats, which are nice. Rear camera and lane switch blind spot alert are really nice. Bluetooth - love. Drives smooth for a little guy! Yes, if you overfocus on the engine's get up and go, you can make yourself crazy..just get over it. Once you are at a set speed.. 40- 60 and cruising along it is really an excellent ride! Don't feel small on road. Gas mileage differential between it and Escape will save you money. 26 mpg around town is amazing for this cute little SUV that can!! Roomy comfort.

Worst Features

More horsepower could improve, but may hurt mileage..
