2018 Mazda CX-5
Why Buy the Mazda CX-5?
Mazda keeps improving the CX-5 year after year. This already-solid model just got a little better with better fuel efficiency and additional features. Car enthusiasts will like Mazda’s attention to detail, evident in its responsive steering and sleek styling. Commuters and roadtrippers will enjoy the quiet interior, cradling them in surprising luxury. The CX-5 has great tech, like an intuitive touchscreen that floats atop the dash. Great care and attention went into almost every aspect of this car–and you’ll be able to tell the difference.
Which Mazda CX-5 Should I Buy?
You have your choice of three CX-5 models: the entry-level Sport, the Touring, or the Grand Touring. Which one to buy is a matter of taste; even the base trim has refinement and plenty of features. Each one comes standard with front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.
If you can swing it, the luxurious CX-5 Grand Touring will give you close to a luxury ride for a less-than-luxury price tag. This CX-5 boasts leather seating, LED fog and tail light and adaptive front lighting in addition to the host of features that come standard on the Sport and Touring. The optional Grand Touring Premium Package adds futuristic features like traffic sign recognition, heated steering wheel, heated second-row outboard seats and windshield wiper de-icer.
Can the Mazda CX-5 tow?
You wouldn’t think so for a vehicle this size, but the Mazda CX-5 actually can tow. The towing capacity is just 2,000 pounds, which is not much compared to a pickup truck but is actually impressive for a crossover of this size. This towing capacity is enough for a UHaul trailer, a little camping trailer, or a couple of jet skis.
Are Mazda CX-5s Good Cars?
The critics are just starting to sound off on the new 2018 Mazda CX-5 and, like previous years’ models, so far those reviews are all looking positive. More importantly, owners are giving it high marks as well. Edmunds reports an average 4.7-stars, Cars.com gives it 4.8, and Kelley Blue Book give it an outstanding 9.6/10 rating. Come see why everyone is excited!
