2016 Mazda CX-5 Review and Road Test - DETAILED in 4K!
An Extremely detailed review by Alex on Autos
Apr 2015 | By RON SESSIONS
The apex-loving CX-5 is the sports car of crossovers, with an athleticism you have to experience to believe. A 155-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder is available only with a six-speed manual and front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is not offered. For more zoom, choose the 184-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional; either teams with a six-speed automatic. The CX-5 is tech savvy and offers useful cargo room, but its strength is its poise on the road.
Ninety-five percent car, five percent plastic cladding.

The CX-3 is a fun and feisty runabout with a can-do attitude, offering taut handling paired with edgy styling. A 146-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic with front-wheel drive provide the zoom-zoom; all-wheel drive is optional. The CX-3 relies on its sport-tuned suspension and creative weight-saving measures to maintain Mazda’s unique brand of driving pleasure. The cabin is equally well designed, featuring high-quality materials and modern driving aids.
The Mazda 3 proves that economical, fuel-efficient cars need not be dull to look at or to drive—and these are just a couple of the many reasons we named it to our 10Best list for 2016. Available as a sedan or a four-door hatchback, a 155-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder is standard; a 184-hp 2.5-liter is optional. A six-speed manual is standard while a six-speed automatic is optional. As with most Mazdas, driving dynamics are peppy and engaging, although road noise can intrude.
