The New Mazda CX-5 | 2019 Review |‎

In 2011 the Mazda CX-5 was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show. It first went on sale in 2012 offering the efficient SKYACTIV-D 2.2 or SKYACTIV-G 2.0 engines. The CX-5 was the first of Mazda’s fleet to introduce the SKYACTIV engines. Since its release in 2012, the CX-5 has reached an extra 84,244 sales in the United States.

With a heavy focus on interior and driving comfort, Mazda has introduced the mid-size CX-5 with a refined, pristine design, look and feel. The vehicle has both front-wheel and all-wheel drive capabilities.

The New Mazda CX-5 2019 Review: Pricing

The CX-5 has an OTR starting price of £25,595 for the entry-level SE-L Nav+, 165ps SKYACTIV-G Petrol 2WD 6-Speed Manual. If you were looking for the range-topping model, you could expect to pay within the region of £36,095. This will give you 19-inch Bright Alloy Wheels, Nappa Leather trim, Mazda’s £800 unique Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint, 360o camera, LED front and rear daytime running lights, along with all interior features such as the dynamic sunroof, 3-stage ventilation and heated front seats, black roof lining, heated steering wheel, White interior LED illumination, head-up display and Driver Attention Alert. Not bad for the price, certainly not bad for the size, either.

The New Mazda CX-5 2019 Review: Exterior and Design

As standard, the Mazda CX-5 gets 17-inch Grey Metallic Alloy Wheels, Dusk-Sensing Lights, Electrically-Adjustable and Heated Power Folding Door Mirrors (With Integrated Indicators), LED Adaptive Front Lighting System Headlamps, Privacy Glass and Rain-Sensing Front Wipers.

The New Mazda CX-5 2019 Review: Interior and Technology

Inside the CX-5 is an almost contemporary approach. The air vents on the dashboard have a sharp, sleek look to them, bringing the design of the exterior inside. The steering wheel is very much what you would expect in a Mazda, but with sharp edges to the infotainment buttons, a really nice effect for Mazda’s premium, mid-SUV.

Mazda has included the electronic handbrake to the CX-5, which in turn gives you more space for storage and comfort. The highlight of removing the handbrake, as it would be in any car these days, is the fact that your cabin looks immediately less cluttered. Almost so much that it’s a little bit odd to look at, at first.

If you are looking at getting the range-topping trim level, you will be given the impressive 10-Speaker Premium Bose® Surround-Sound System. If you’re determined to get great acoustics, this could be a good choice for you – for an extra cost, of course!

The standard, entry-level CX-5 comes with Dual-Zone Climate Control Air-Conditioning, 7-Inch Colour Touch-Screen Display, Aha™ App and Stitcher™ App Integration for Internet Radio, Facebook and Twitter Functionality, AM/FM/DAB Radio with CD Player, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ Functionality, Auxiliary and USB inputs (2 front and 2 rear), Integrated Bluetooth® Including Internet App Integration, Multimedia Commander Including Separate Volume Dial, Steering Wheel-Mounted Audio and Bluetooth® Controls, 40/20/40 Karakuri Fold-Flat Rear Seats, Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel and Gear Knob, Rear Center Armrest with 2 Cupholders and 2 USB Inputs and the Premium Black Cloth Interior Trim.

The New Mazda CX-5 2019 Review: Safety and Driver Assistance

The Mazda CX-5 does really well with its consideration for safety. Judging by Euro NCAP, the Mazda CX-5 was rewarded an impressive 5 stars. The Adult Occupant safety reaches 95%, the Child Occupant safety gets 80%, Pedestrian safety gets an impressive 78% and safety assist features has been given 59%.

Inside the entry-level CX-5, you get Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Front and Rear Parking Sensors, Mazda Navigation System with 3-Years Free European Map Updates, Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror, Electronic Parking Brake with Auto Hold, Advanced Smart City Brake Support, Auto Door Locking Feature (Drive Away), Blind Spot Monitoring System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System, Emergency Stop Signalling System, Hill Launch Assist and Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist System.
