Mazda CX-5 (2013)

CX-5 windmill

An inconvenient truth?

5 Pros

  1. The Mazda CX-5 has a great diesel engine that is extremely fuel efficient for this class. Unfortunately, the 2.0L petrol version is not so terrific
  2. The CX-5 handles better than it size suggests. The Mazda is like riding a segway, you’ll be surprised each time you don’t fall over
  3. Rear parking camera as standard across the range – a commendable safety initiative by Mazda
  4. Solid interior that is well appointed
  5. Large boot and it’s competitively priced

5 Cons

  1. There is no cheap version with a Diesel engine (the competition tends to be $5k cheaper)
  2. Current reports of a significant problem involving the oil level of the car – apparently it needs to be checked every 1,000km
  3. The Mazda brand is not cool. Despite all the zoom-zoom advertising, it’s still brussels sprout motoring
  4. It can be a bit difficult to get a good driving position
  5. Mazda’s typically suffer from noisy cabins

Concluding personality type: Australian pop star: Local hero, but lacking that international flair
