Great Small SUV! Very Useful and Fun to Drive!!
By comet18 on


2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Bottom Line Up Front:
I bought my 2014 Soul Red Metallic Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring at the end of May and couldn't be happier with it!
It looks great, drives wonderfully and is exceeding the advertised MPG ratings.

We looked at the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, Subaru Outback and Forester as well as the Mazda CX-5.
Test drove them all several times.
Comparing the safety ratings, fuel economy, cargo capacity, etc. the cars all come out fairly similarly.
In my opinion, the main differentials were looks and driving style.
The CX-5 is sleeker and much more fun to drive.
It felt much more nimble and agile than the others and now it's in my garage.

Update: Had the CX-5 for three years now. No issues and still fun to drive!! I average around 28-31 MPG with a mix of in-town and highway driving. Love the Bose sound system.
