Rob Denaro says:

Too small and impractical. No full size spare wheel. So take it on country drives, dirt roads, beach, and tow anything, at your own risk. This is a small SUV, not mid sized. Best limited to the city and suburbs.

jgsky says:

wow CD player! I go for it. XD

Irukuvarjjula Praneeth says:

What's your opinion on the 2.0l NA?

GT C says:

HATE these stupid right side steering car presentations! HELLO…!!!

Aurelian Manoli says:

It’s a 25k£ car that rivals with more expensive ones. Mazdas are fun to drive, reliable and cheap to run. Also they are sexy cars. I had Audi’s, BMW and VW but they can’t compare to my Mazda.

Steve M says:

In my humble opinion Matt is entertaining and gives well rounded, insightful reviews. I almost always chose Matt and carwow first when looking for car reviews. Keep up the good work. Funny how some comments express irritation with the presentation style yet they refer to the numerous carwow videos they don’t care for… here’s a thought, watch something else.

Donald Tirkey says:

@matwatsoncars could you plz review CX9 too…

tom spud says:

Not sure why you would compare a Jap car to Vauxhall muck. I wouldn't take a Vauxhall if they were even half the price.

Felipe Fernandez Lomas says:

Superb review @MatWatsonCars . I rented one of these a couple of weeks ago and loved it, but I said pretty much the same as you. The 2.0 is sluggish and thirsty, and having a manual gearbox just ruins the adaptive cruise control in stop/start traffic. That infotainment system drove me mad too

Took ownership of a cx5 2.0 sport nav+ auto in Snowflake white on 1/3/19.

The good points: Extremely well put together cabin and quality trim, puts me in mind of BMW & Mercedes. Seat leather is of a good quality and seats are supportive and comfortable. Road noise is good for class and a lot better than the Honda CRV and Peugeot 3008. The Bose sound system is very good and has a large subwoofer in the floor lining of the boot. I also appreciate having a cd player, not everyone wants to buy down loads of an album they have probably bought umpteen times before! Cabin space is sufficient and rear leg room is fine for us (sub 6ft) The external styling is beautiful, not too in your face, I would describe it as classy and a cut above its competitors. Boot space is adequate but not class leading. MPG is around 35 with a mix of around town and a small amount of motorway.

Bad points: 0-60mph is slooow, very under powered in my opinion, the car does not feel like a 2.0 the accelerator peddle takes some pushing down and nothing seems to happen. The auto gear box struggles to select the right gear if you try to pull away fast, 6 gears is just not enough which leads to a jerky change at times and holds on to the gear slightly too long. The satnav is poor with graphics that are basic and years out of date, honestly you can buy a plug in that gives better quality and features. One last gripe, the petrol engine noise can only be described as a whine, it reminds me of a fake electric engine noise.

Overall I would give this car 6.5 out of 10. A lovely looking car, quality interior but the drive fails to deliver.
