2014 Mazda CX-5
The Mazda CX-5 is an exceptional car both aesthetically and technologically. It strikes a perfect balance between elegance and brawn which appeals to both a masculine and feminine clientele. It is angling for space in a crowded playing field that is packed with big hitters such as the Nissan X-Trail, Subaru Forester, Toyota Rav-4, Honda CR-V, Mitsubishi Outlander and the VW Tiguan. Even amongst these, the CX-5 stands out as it offers some pretty compelling features that are noteworthy. One of the CX-5's standout qualities is its performance. This used compact SUV is more agile than most, and its responsive steering and well-controlled suspension will add zing to your daily driving routine. The base CX-5 Sport comes with a sufficiently powerful 2.0-liter engine, but if you want a little more fun, seek out a CX-5 Touring or CX-5 Grand Touring model. These come with a spicier 2.5-liter engine. It's paired with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission, and it gets almost the same fuel economy as the smaller engine. With either engine, you'll get the same or better gas mileage than most used compact SUVs, with around 24-26 mpg in the city and 30-32 mpg on the highway. The 2014 CX-5 is available with front- or all-wheel drive. The 2014 Mazda CX-5 has room for five people, with cloth seats in the Sport and Touring trims and leather upholstery and heated front seats in the CX-5 Grand Touring. There's lots of room in both rows and the seats are comfortable. If you have car seats, there are three tether anchors and two sets of lower anchors in the back seat. Cargo space is typical for the class. The interior of the 2014 Mazda CX-5 features high-quality materials that are soft to the touch. The controls are accessible and easy to use, and every model comes with a USB port and push-button start. Some CX-5's include Bluetooth, a color touch screen, a rearview camera, a Bose stereo, satellite radio, blind spot monitoring, and Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support system, which can automatically apply the brakes at low speeds if an obstacle is detected.
