The Mazda CX-5 has taken the compact SUV vehicle segment by storm in recent years. The CX-5 may not be the best-selling small SUV, but it’s easily one of the best models to buy in its segment. The Mazda CX–5 competes with popular models like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Hyundai Tucson. The CX-5 provides great value for the money, but is the small SUV comfy?

Is the Mazda CX-5 comfortable?

The last four Mazda CX-5 model years got decent comfort scores from Consumer Reports. The CX-5 isn’t the most comfortable model in its segment, but it isn’t the least comfy either. The Mazda CX-5 got a better comfort score from Consumer Reports than the 2022 Toyota RAV4. Since the RAV4 is the most popular compact SUV, the CX-5 is a great alternative based on comfort.

The Mazda CX-5 is praised for its quality interior and great handling. It’s sportier than many of its rivals and makes a great small family hauler because of its refined interior.

The 2023 Mazda CX-5 starts at $26,700. It uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine to make 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The small SUV achieves 24 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway. Its fuel economy is decent for its size.

Is the Mazda CX-5 worth it?

The Mazda CX-5 is within the same price range as many of its competitors. It provides more value for the money than many of its competitors because of how luxurious it is.

The CX-5 comes standard with a remote keyless entry system, push-button start, and 12-volt power outlets. It also features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped gear selector, and a 10.25-inch infotainment system.

The 2023 Mazda CX-5 includes standard blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, Mazda radar cruise control with stop and go, and all-wheel drive. It’s worth the money because of its many standard features. The CX-5 provides even more value at higher trim levels. Car and Driver recommends the Turbo trim. It starts at $36,850.

The CX-5 Turbo uses a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine to make 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and a wireless phone charger. The small SUV also features an advanced keyless entry and start system, paddle shifters, and a windshield-projected active driving display.

What’s the best small SUV on the market?

The Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V remain at the top of 2022 small SUV sales. The RAV4 is the best-selling model, but it may not be the best small SUV for the money. The Hyundai Tucson and Mazda CX-5 have recently been climbing up small SUV rankings.
