2013-2016 Mazda CX-5

The CX-5 was initially released in 2012, and all 2013-2016 Mazda CX-5 models are included in this initial generation. These model years feature Mazda’s SKYACTIV® chassis and engines, which make them fun to drive, and the KODO: Soul of Motion® design that’s so visually appealing. They come in three trims—Sport, Touring and Grand Touring—that offer multiple Mazda CX-5 configurations to choose from.

The 2013-2016 Mazda CX-5 offers three trim levels:

Amazing deal with no hassles

It was so easy to go by Carmax and look at different models that I had been considering buying after my car accident. I was able to look at and sit in each model and get a better feel of what I was really looking for. Once I decided on a make, model and year then Miranda did an amazing job of immediately sending me the information on all the available cars. It was so easy to look at all the information listed on line and make the final decision. I was in the car driving out of the Carmax lot 5 days late in my new car. I never realized how easy it could be. There was absolutely no pressure from anyone at Carmax at any point. A stress free experience. .

The car of my dreams!

I am absolutely obsessed with my car! It is the perfect size for my family! We just got back from our first road trip with it and it was perfect! The gas mileage is amazing and I don't know how I ever went so long without the heads-up display! The trunk is the perfect size for our adventures. Usually the new car excitement is gone by now, but I swear I fall more in love with it everyday! Took it to big-o for an oil change after the trip and they said that it is in perfect condition, couldn't find something extra to fix if they tried. Driving it feels so natural and fun. I feel like the hottest car on the road!


  • Technology and Entertainment: The heads up display is my favorite feature that I've never had before. I love that I can see so much information right there on my windshield! I rarely have to look away from the road at my dash. It is the coolest thing! It blows my mind that only the driver can see it.
  • Styling:
  • Fuel Economy: One tank of gas stretches farther! we took a road trip from Ogden, UT to Flagstaff, AZ and only stopped for gas twice! we could have gone farther with but we stopped at the good bathrooms lol


  • Interior Space: it's a bit small inside. I don't even have an issue with it but it was an adjustment at first. After a big minivan with only 2 kids anything seems small.

great mid size suv

well equipped. solid value Mazda is often an overlooked brand. but this is my second Mazda and I am very pleased with build quality ride and looks it stands out from most similar suvs with a distinctive front end styling mine has the adaptive cruise, i use it all the time on my highway commute. the lane assist and blind spot monitoring are very helpful too. I average 30.5 mpg on regular unleaded. they have made the interior feel and look more upscale than others in the same price point.the only slight disappointment is no xm satellite radio and no touch screen on the infotainment but the center controls are easy to use once you learn the position of the buttons and switches easy to use ventilation and heated seats. the sunroof is nice on warm days. leather and cloth seats are attractive and comfortable. paint quality is some of the besti have ever seen.


  • Value: Mazda is one of the smaller japan es manufactures so they pack a lot of value and driving pleasure a tall there price points
  • Ride and Handling: Mazda builds a drivers car
  • Power: at 2.5 liters and automatic transmission it is not a race car but has a respectable 0 to 60 time and a better than average passing time. the 4 cyl engine is smooth the cylinder deactivation take a bit of getting use to but improves overall economy a lot.


  • Interior Space: the center console could be just a bit thinner giving more hip room but not uncomfortable at all
  • Fuel Economy: the mpg is good at 30.5 mostly highway driving but a hybrid would be nice to see as most competitors offer at least one.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Mazda has a lack of touch screens across the brand they will catch up but i think they skipped it to hit better value pricing
