2017 Mazda CX-5 v Peugeot 3008 comparison

  See the full article here. The newcomer versus the champ: this isn’t some naff reference to a big money fight, but by the same token, it kind of is – because here we have the much-lauded European that’s all about swagger, going against the stalwart chart-topper with a tremendous record...

2017 Mazda CX-5 range review

The first-generation Mazda CX-5 was Australia’s most popular SUV four years running, so the premiere of a more grown-up second iteration has genuine significance. Australians purchased about 115,000 Mazda CX-5s from launch in 2012, making it the company’s number-two offering behind the Mazda 3. Globally, it accounts for about 25 per cent of its total sales...

2018 Holden Equinox LS+ v Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport comparison

Holden thinks it finally has a convincing mid-sized SUV, addressing a major gap in its range. The model is called the Equinox, and the company calls it “Australia’s most user-friendly SUV”. But if the now full-importer brand wants to make a splash in one of the market’s key segments, it’ll need to stack up against the top-seller – Mazda’s CX-5, itself relatively recently into its second generation...

New Mazda CX-5 to gain seven-seat option - report

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 that will launch in Australia in the coming months could well be joined by a seven-seat variant, if reports out of Japan are to be believed. Japanese site LiveDoor claims that a seven-seat version of the new-generation Mazda CX-5 will be offered in that market by the end of 2017, because Mazda doesn't sell the larger CX-9 seven-seater in its home market...

2017 Mazda CX-5 GT review

When buying the Mazda we were also looking at the Jeep Cherokee Limited, the Volkswagen Tiguan Highline, the Hyundai Tucson Highlander and the Kia Sportage Platinum. The three that really stood out to us were the Mazda, the Jeep and the Volkswagen. They seemed like the best quality and looked as if they were built a little better than the other rivals...

2014 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x2) Review

I knew a lot about the CX-5 from reading many reviews and articles about about them on CarAdvice.com and other websites. I test drove a few cars before picking this one and do not regret it. We decided on the Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport  4X2, which cost around $34,000. I like the CX-5’s exterior design.  It has a really stylish body compared to its competitors in the category...

2016 Mazda CX-5 Akera (4x4) Review

Performance and economy of the diesel engine is very impressive and well worth the price premium over the petrol variant. The automatic transmission and drivetrain are silky smooth. Servicing cost to date has been reasonable. Reliability has been excellent with no faults, either major or minor, to report to date although the vehicle has travelled less than 40,000km...

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...
