Mazda CX-5 Owner Car Reviews

2015 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x2) Review

This is the wife's daily driver and we have about 6500KM's on the clock so far. I have only driven it maybe 10 or so times but I feel like I can give a good review of this vehicle. Over the years I have owned quite a few cars, mainly european sedans but there is a good mix of everything in there so I feel like I can give a good review of this car as I have quite a bit to compare it to...

2014 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x4) Review

I purchased the Mazda in September 2014 after looking around at many different vehicles of all types and not just SUVs. In point of fact I was somewhat against buying an SUV as I have always enjoyed driving agile and responsive sedans and hatches with great steering and chassis balance and I did not feel that the gap could be overcome...

2016 Mazda CX-5 GT Safety (4x4) Review

CX-5 GT looks the part from the outset. LED DRL, Headlights and Tail lamps. 19" dark alloys wheels. Inside Black leather and trim with classy chrome highlights, make you feel a little better shelling out $50K on a car. Start the 2.2lt diesel engine and you would be mistaken for thinking you were in the petrol engine CX-5...

2015 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x4) Review

Firstly when buying the CX5 you should take it for at least a half hour test drive and make sure you take it up some decent hills. That is when you will find out the LACK of power! I bought the 2.5 AWD and was told to keep away from the 2 Litre Model so I did but found a lack of power in the 2...

2013 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x4) Review

We bought this car whilst looking for a do-it-all, all-rounder; a comfortable tourer with solid dynamics, with good standard kit (standard keyless start, touchscreen and reverse camera were rare for the class in 2013), whilst already being a Mazda fan, for their style, heritage and focus on the driver experience (I used to own a Mazda3)...

2015 Mazda CX-5 Review

Faking it. At some point in our lives we've all done it in some way. And depending on the gender of the reader, some probably have more than others – cheeky. Whatever you want to call them; compact SUVs, crossovers or faux-wheel drives, they are the automotive equivalent of Bjorn Again. It's a segment presenting as a would-be off-roader while retaining the practical capabilities of a family hatchback...

2015 Mazda CX-5 Review

This is a review of the 2015 Mazda CX3 Akari Diesel AWD Mazda has recently entered the crowded compact SUV market with the CX3, and even before arriving on our shores, it had high expectations. It has plenty of competition including the Honda HRV, Holden Trax and Renault Captur. In the next six months both the Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500X will arrive...

2015 Mazda CX-5 Akera Review

The updated CX 5 has filled in the little gaps that the previous model still had and in doing so now sets the bar very high for a sub $60000.00 vehicle! BMW and Audi would be starting to get a little frustrated with how this SUV keeps closing the gap between them in quality and at a price that is making people ask just why am I forking out so much more on a European vehicle that really offers little more than badge creed over the Mazda...

2015 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Review

Buying a new car these days is akin to going to buy lunch in a food court with fifty outlets. You’d better have an idea of what you need or you’ll end buying something you don’t like the flavour of, or something that looks better than it tastes. Just because there are fifty outlets and the food court is full, don’t make the mistake of thinking that all the food is good value, tastes good and that it’s all fresh...

2015 Mazda CX-5 GT Review

After 3 years of ownership, and with the warranty coming to an end, I decided it was time to replace our 2012 CX-5 GT Diesel. I had been happy with the CX-5 and it was difficult to think of another car that better suited our needs. The CX-5 had the right combination of features, performance, economy, size and practicality for our young family...

2012 Mazda CX-5 Grand Tourer Review

I'm not happy with our Mazda CX5, there is not much room in the back for our 6ft son. Also there are a few rattles in the cabin of the car, one under the wheel and the other is in the pillar on the passage side. I do like how the car drives and the way it feels on the road but no car should rattle like this one. And some of the plastics in the car feel really cheap and hard...
