MAZDA CX-5 Reviews: Performance

Edmunds: “Handling is where the CX-5 excels. Since it’s sharp and communicative, you can take corners at speeds greater than rivals without squealing tires or feeling like you’re out of control. The car is unfazed by quick left-to-right transitions. This is the best-handling small crossover. No doubt about it.”

US News and World Report: Responsive steering and general fun from behind the wheel are hallmarks of any Mazda offering, including the CX-5. This Mazda feels planted around corners, with all-wheel-drive models exhibiting even more noticeable road grip.

MAZDA CX-5 Reviews: Interior Comfort & Convenience

From its suite of tech and comfort features, to its impressive cargo capacity for its class, the Mazda CX-5 is sure to add everything you need to make the most out of your adventures between Wallingford and North Haven.

US News and World Report: “this Mazda has enough utility to hold several suitcases without impacting rear visibility, and you can fill up the cargo area with a whole family’s worth of luggage.”

Car and Driver: “Every model now boasts a 10.3-inch infotainment system, which replaces the old 7.0-inch display. The new interface is still manipulated through a rotary controller and volume knob on the center console as well as voice commands and buttons on the steering wheel. Unlike the previous model year, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard across the board.”
