Mazda’s mid-size SUV has been with us given 2012, when it warranted a layer of ‘The Car That Saved The Company.’ The CX-5 is now in a second generation, despite one that keeps a same framework and engines as before and plonks a new physique on top.
It’s devilishly attractive body, though, with well-spoken lines and it looks good in Mazda’s signature low red paint. The cabin is rather some-more plain, nonetheless it is unusually good put-together, and there’s decent space in a back.
Unlike rivals from Honda and Skoda, though, there’s no seven-seat option, yet a good news is that Mazda’s framework tuning is as pointy here on a CX-5 as it is on a MX-5. Well, roughly anyway – as distant as SUVs and crossovers go, it’s unequivocally gratifying to drive. The infotainment system, though, needs a critical ascent if it’s to contest and a 2.0-litre petrol choice is not unequivocally during a races.
