I think Mazda has quickly become one of my favorite car brands. They are affordable and packed full of features that you'd expect to pay a lot more for. They are roomy, have zoom zoom (that is their motto after all), and get decent gas mileage.
If you're in the market for a nice little crossover, then I highly recommend the Mazda CX-5.
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 seats 5 passengers and gets 24/30 mpg, making it the perfect little family crossover. And it's even more perfect for traveling with it's mileage.
The dashboard and steering wheel mounted controls are one of my favorite parts about this Mazda CX-5. The whole crossover is so sleek and I really loved testing it for a week.
Quite a bit of storage space. 2 large cupholders and a center console that was VERY deep!
As soon as I opened the door, I was floored at the beauty of the CX-5, the 2 tone were absolutely stunning.
Lots of legroom in the front and back seats.
The trunk is VERY spacious on the CX-5 even with the seats up, but you can 60/40 split the seats down and have even more storage room.
The Mazda CX-5 has some of my favorite features like the Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It also has Dynamic Stability Control and Roll Stability Control and Traction Control System which helps prevent wheelspin and helps you gain traction. Tire Pressure Monitoring System and more!
Of course the CX-5 features Mazda's SKYACTIV Technology, which helps you achieve higher gas mileage and makes the vehicle drive smoother.
And it of course featured the Push Button start that I'm in love with!! Means I can leave my keys in my purse, Get in and start the vehicle with ease.
The Mazda CX-5 has 3 models. Sport starting at $21,795 Touring starting at $25,215 and the Grand Touring (that I received) starting at $28,570. The one I received had a sticker price of $33,740. It was the Grand Touring AWD
Mazda has a 3 year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty (also includes 24/7 roadside assistance) and a 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty
