Review: 2017 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD – Part 5

So I’ve come to the end of my week long review of the Mazda CX-5. Now, what does it compete against? I’ll start with the usual suspects which are the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue. Hyundai Tucson which I reviewed a couple of years ago, Ford Escape and Kia Sportage. But the interior of the CX-5 is above and beyond what’s in all of these vehicles and so are the driving dynamics. Not to mention the exterior looks. Thus I suspect that this new CX-5 will be stealing sales from that group shortly.

My final fuel economy was 9.6 L/100KM’s which is pretty good. I did drive in a mix of city roads and highways, not to mention rush hour traffic. Thus the Skyactiv magic clearly works in the CX-5.

Now the CX-5 GT that I had this weeks goes for $38,495 (freight included). But you can get a CX-5 for $24,900 which is right in the range of it’s main competitors. On a side note, this has been the most read review that I have ever done based on the number of page views that it got over the week. That’s suggests to me that a lot of people are interested in what the CX-5 has to offer, and that Mazda clearly has a winner on its hands. And I suspect that will show in Mazda’s sales numbers shortly.
