The Mazda CX-5 is an adept sporty version of the modern family-comfort SUV. Classified as a compact crossover SUV, the Mazda CX-5 stands out from other new and used cars for sale. These sleek vehicles incorporate the elegant trimmings of a sports car and incorporate them into the practical SUV body. Mazda developed its unique model utilizing a design language, a method of design featuring a specific style, scheme, and theme. The Mazda CX-5 was built with an original Kodo “soul of motion” design language featuring natural motion effects such as fire, wind and water. The result is a conceptually distinctive SUV with all the comforts of its chunkier competition.
The Mazda CX-5 experience
The Mazda CX-5 does more than look good; it feels good. Luxurious material and lumbar supportive seating are standard amongst its cockpit-like driver’s experience. Crisp accents and recessed dials make the interior as much sportscar-inspired as the exterior. Thankfully, the fluid model does not compromise on size; the large SUV comfortably seats five, although arguably more so for head height than shoulder width. Meanwhile, the drive performance is reportedly smooth, thanks to the relatively stiff suspension. Unfortunately, the standard Mazda CX-5 does not have the speed to match its sports car esthetic. As well, the firmer suspension can create jarring movement on sharp bumps. Take it as it is, the Mazda CX-5 is built with comfort and compromises are made for performance.
The Mazda CX-5 options
The standard gas Mazda CX-5 comes with a six-speed manual gearbox. However, two diesel options can give this sporty SUV plenty of power. Although, when it comes to raw ruggedness, there are more effective comparative vehicles, including the Toyota Rav 4 or Honda CR-V. Thankfully, opting for the automatic gearbox and 4-wheel drive upgrades will force minimal compromise when it comes to the smoothness of the drive.
