2013 Mazda CX-5 First Drive

By Matthew Askari | March 16, 2012
What It Is The 2013 Mazda CX-5 is an all-new small utility vehicle, aimed at working pros early in their careers and young families looking for efficient versatility. Best Thing The Mazda CX-5 is all-new, and it looks and feels that way, too. Plus, anyway you slice it, you're going to get good gas mileage. Worst Thing The automatic models feel underpowered, especially on the lower end. An imminent diesel-powered Mazda CX-5 scheduled for next year can't come soon enough.
Snap Judgment In a segment defined by utility and efficiency, the 2013 Mazda CX-5 adds a little cheekiness, fun, and style to spar with the competition.
