Vehicle2014 Mazda CX-5 Touring 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewI wanted to get the wife in a larger and higher vehicle due to crazy traffic in Dallas,TX(drives a civic). I was very impressed with how much it drives like a car in that there is virtually no body lean. We wanted a SUV that you could get good amenities without having leather and this was it. The acceleration is very good when you want to speed up to get around someone. My wife initially liked the CRV more as you can see better out of it but you need to drive the car for the day and get used to the blindspot mirrors and once she was used to them it was hands down a much better driving experience than the CRV. I felt that in a year or so the CRV would be ho-hum compared to the CX5.

Most importantly I forgot to add that we are getting 30-31 mpg. Average highway/city speeds here are 40-65 MPH. As an update the Bose system is sounding better every week as the speakers start to break in. Don't judge it by initial sound as it does get more rich in the mids and lows. Still needs a subwoofer but it works well.Report it
