Although, Mazda has kept its CX-5 almost unchanged except two key features, which are keyless entry and ignition, which have always remained a standard in their all Touring and Grand Touring trim levels.
Live every other SUV hitting the market for 2015 Mazda CX-5 also has its share of lows and for us the main flaw in this brand new futuristic SUV is its subpar electronics interface. If we compare the infotainment systems of other Mazda rivals, it becomes clear that company has failed to come over its mediocre graphics, poor navigation and disorganized placement of menus, lack of scrolling feature on map screen and lot more. Sound quality is not that good to even talk about although they are offering Bose Audio System. On performance level as well, if you are planning for a car that you can take out with full passenger load and cargo then we recommend you to buy 2.5 liter engine version.
Because small crossover has evolved a lot in past few years and there are several options to check out before making any final decision. Some of the worthwhile competitors for Mazda CX-5 are Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4, Jeep Cherokee and Subaru Forester. As they all have something or the other that can challenge your decision of buying Mazda CX-5 before even having a look at them.
But, we still believe no matter how good the rivals are, Mazda CX-5 still scores high among others and it actually deserves strong consideration.
