Regardless of trim, CX-5 crossovers share a standard engine. Once an option, now the SKYACTIV® engine is always under the hood, cranking out 187 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed automatic offers sharp shifting, and all-wheel drive is available. Whether you choose Touring or Grand Touring editions, sports-car-like handling may make you forget that this is actually a crossover. Motor Trend writes that it is zippy and quick. Edmunds calls it the best handling crossover in its class.
With the 2017 editions, Mazda has moved the CX-5 further upmarket. This is evidenced by the handsome sheet metal on the exterior and the higher quality materials inside. There is more headroom and legroom, too, especially now that Mazda has added reclining back seats. There’s a whopping 34 cu.ft. in the cargo hold, and you can grab 65 cu.ft. when you fold the seats. A power liftgate is a Grand Touring standard. For all CX-5, dash tech is standard, including a touchscreen with streaming audio. The Touring is the second-tier CX-5 while the Grand Touring is the top, fourth-tier edition.
Touring models are all about comfort. Cloth seats are upgraded to simulated leather. You can keep your key in your pocket with push button start. It’s hard to feel cold with heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. The power-adjusting driver’s seat offers lumbar support. You can get even more with special option packages. Grand Touring models add more for the driver and passengers to love. The exterior has larger, 19-inch wheels. The cabin comes with leather seats, navigation, and a Bose audio system. You can also add heat to the steering wheel and rear seats. You may be hard-pressed to find this level of luxury in other crossovers in this class.
Low-speed automatic braking is a feature on all CX-5 crossovers. This smart city auto brake will stop the crossover at speeds under 19 mph. This greatly reduces the chances of costly fender benders. Touring editions have a blind spot monitor to alert the driver to side traffic. This also works when in reverse, warning the driver about oncoming cars. A high-definition rearview camera takes the work out of backing up.
Grand Touring editions add even more stress-reducing automation. This includes rain-sensing wipers and auto-dimming mirrors. The headlights will automatically swivel to better match the crossover’s trajectory. In addition, high beams regulate light according to conditions. Adaptive cruise control reduces the need for driver intervention when traffic slows. A forward collision warning seeks to get the driver’s attention. If time is short, an autobrake will try to slow the crossover. Likewise, a lane watch is on guard to warn the driver. It has an active assist to correct drifting. You can also get a helpful head-up display.
