2013 Mazda CX-5, one of top Affordable Compact SUVs

Published on by thepandacover

The greatest advantage of 2013 Mazda CX-5 is its performance. Car reviewers and test drivers give the 2013 Mazda CX-5 high marks on its phenomenal handling, near-perfect manual transmission and outstanding fuel economy figures.MSRP of the 2013 Mazda CX-5 starts at $20,695. The 2013 Mazda CX-5 is a new compact SUV from Mazda that replaces the Mazda CX-7 and Mazda Tribute. It's available in Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trims.

It is a pity that Tight second row and Slightly underpowered engine reduce its marks. Shoppers who prioritize comfort or high-tech features over agile handling should take a close look at the Mazda CX-5's interior before purchasing. The front and rear seats are comfortable, but like many small SUVs, the rear seats may be tight for three adults, especially on long trips. With a standard USB port and optional Bluetooth and navigation, reviewers consider the 2013 Mazda CX-5's list of tech features dull compared with models that have standard Bluetooth and optional rearview cameras and infotainment systems, like the 2013 Ford Escape's MyFord Touch.

Performance is the main reason to choose the 2013 Mazda CX-5. The CX-5's handling, which reviewers say runs a close second to the small and sporty Mazda MX-5 Miata, is as good as it gets in this class. The CX-5 earns praise for its neutral handling and great corner-hugging ability. Test drivers like the CX-5's six-speed manual transmission just as much, saying it shifts smoothly and makes the CX-5 really engaging to drive. One thing reviewers crave is more power from the Mazda CX-5's 155-horsepower four-cylinder engine because a boost would come in handy when traveling uphill. Good cargo space, excellent fuel economy and a quality interior are wrapped in a sporty, attractive exterior. Best of all, they say the Mazda CX-5 is just as fun to drive as it looks.

Consumer Guide said: "There are several really good compact SUVs on the market. After our first chance to get behind the wheel, we think the 2013 Mazda CX-5 can be added to that list. CX-5 feels a bit sportier than its main rivals, with little penalty in ride quality or overall practicality. We also like the tastefully finished interior and promising EPA fuel economy estimates. The base Sport model with the 6-speed manual transmission is surprisingly fun to drive, nicely equipped, and we think it's a particularly good value for the money."
