Mazda CX-5 Review - 9/10 say the Telegraph | Norton Way Mazda

All-New CX-5 Gets 9/10 from The Telegraph

Mazda has been on something of a roll since the original CX-5 was introduced in 2012, launching great car after great car. The Japanese brand strives to continue that with the latest CX-5, a five-seat SUV with a price, size and specification that sees it compete with the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and larger SUVs such as the seven-seat Skoda Kodiaq.

You can choose between a front-wheel-drive 2.0-litre petrol or 2.2-litre diesel in either front- or all-wheel drive forms with two different power outputs.

The Telegraph rated the car in various different areas and here are the results:

SPACE - 9/10

One of the roomier SUVs

COMFORT - 7/10

Not the smoothest ride, but the diesels are quiet

DASHBOARD LAYOUT - 9/10

Good to look at and feels built to last

EASY TO DRIVE - 8/10

Beautifully weighted controls help

FUN TO DRIVE - 9/10

For an SUV it’s very good indeed

RELIABILITY 8/10

Mazda consistently performs above average

FUEL ECONOMY - 8/10

Impressive considering its size and performance

AFFORDABILITY - 8/10

Good for retail buyers, less so company car drivers

SAFETY - 9/10

All models come with autonomous emergency braking

STANDARD SPEC - 10/10

Only two models and both are packed with equipment

Strong marks all around. The CX-5 is not only spacious, well equiped and great to drive, its great value too!
