2014 Mazda CX-5 Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Have had this car for 3000 miles in 3 months. Happy with my choice so far.

I am 6'-2" and I have two toddlers. My wife is already driving a minivan. So, i was looking for a car that can fit the whole family occasionally, yet compact enough to fit the short street curb between driveways in san francisco, versatile, two car seats, good looking, satisfying to drive, sit high, around $22,000 (out of the door), good mpg for my long commute and respected. I have found all these in my new cx-5.

I was not considering mazda. But then, i got a chance to drive a mazda3 rental with a skyactiv engine. I re-discovered the driving experience I loved so much with my old BMW 3 series.
Update: 26,000 miles, 3.5 years. Still love it.
