The Mazda CX-5 was introduced in 2013 as a new small crossover and it immediately rivaled mainstays in the marketplace with its dynamic feel and fun everyday drive. For 2017, Mazda revamped the CX-5 to add more comfort, a better interior and advanced safety systems as standard equipment. It’s now one of the highest-rated crossovers in any class.
With these upgrades, Mazda didn’t mess with its winning formula. The CS-5’s SKYACTIV chassis and drivetrain remain much the same and just as sporty and fun. Mazda also left the CX-5’s pricing structure and trim point levels roughly the same, keeping this little crossover poised to remain a high seller in the small, two-row crossover market.
There’s a lot to love about the 2017 CX-5, from its charismatic good looks to its award-winning interior and engaging drive.
