Review: 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Part 5

So I’ve come to the end of my week long review of the Mazda CX-5 Signature. The closest competitors to the CX-5 Signature are the Ford Escape Titanium and Kia Sportage SX Turbo as they are close on horsepower, but they have less torque. But I really think that there are three reasons why the CX-5 in the Signature trim level beats all of them:

  • The CX-5 has a superior interior. As in one that doesn’t exist in any mainstream competitor, as well as one that will rival competitors in the luxury space.
  • The torque of the engine is better in the CX-5 Signature than in any of those vehicles.
  • It has the best implementation of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that I have ever seen.

My final fuel economy was 10.7 L/100KM’s which I got in a mix of city roads and highways, not to mention a lot of rush hour traffic. I am pretty sure that I could have gotten better if I wasn’t utilizing the power of this engine as the CX-5 Signature was so fun to drive. But I will take this fuel economy as that is a great for a vehicle of this size.

Now the CX-5 Signature goes for $40,950 before freight and taxes. But you can get a CX-5 for $27,650. Quite frankly, Mazda has a winner on its hands here. The CX-5 is at the top of the compact crossover space as it frankly is better than any other compact crossover out there. My advice is test drive the rest, then test drive the CX-5. I am confident that you’ll find that CX-5 is head and shoulders above the rest.
