Reviews for 2018 Mazda CX-5

Overall Rating

4.7 out of 5 (20 reviews)


I have to start by saying I must give thanks to God for the vehicle, the ability to pay for the vehicle and even to drive a vehicle. This pandemic among other things has taught me to give praise where it's due and take nothing for granted. As for the vehicle - it's everything I wanted, everything I didn't know I wanted and everything I needed. The inside of the vehicle is so quiet - it's serene. The interior is like luxury. The safety features are amazing...lane assist, BRAKE! on the dashboard if you get too close to a vehicle too soon, the back up camera and warnings if something is close but not yet seen in the camera. The AWD is amazing. I navigated this year's snow and ice with shocking ease . The sunroof is nice. I am able to open it even when it's cold outside and not freeze. When it's open, the inside of the vehicle stays quiet as long as it's not too windy out. There are two things that I didn't/ dont love about the vehicle. First, there were no license plate holes/ holder on the front of the vehicle. My state requires a front vehicle license plate and I had to arrange for that to be done. This was a minor inconvenience but not necessarily a con. The second thing is gas. I get about 24 miles per gallon city/ hwy combined. I feel like I do buy gas more often than I would prefer. Otherwise, it's a great, great, great vehicle!


  • Cabin Noise: It's very quiet.
  • Weather Versatility: This vehicle has you covered rain, snow , sleet or shine
  • Power: This vehicle puts you in remembrance of "Zoom, zoom, zoom!"


  • Fuel Economy: Not quite as good as I would prefer.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Takes The Prize

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring came with every bell and whistle you can imagine. it had very low mileage, and drives like a dream. It is responsive, handles well and delivers 30 miles per gallon! There is virtually nothing about this well engineered car that I would change.


  • Cabin Noise: The CX-5 delivers an amazingly quiet ride, even at highway speeds.
  • Fuel Economy: 30 miles per gallon is an average number with up to 33 mpg on the highway.
  • Styling: The CX-5 in the Soul Red Crystal is an eye popping deep candy apple red. That and very sophisticated styling inside and out has made driving my CX-5 a most satisfying experience!


  • Technology and Entertainment: The overall technology in the CX-5 is truly second to none, even when compared to much higher end alternatives. The entertainment system and overall connectivity with smartphones could use some tweaking.
  • Cargo Space: While cargo space is a bit small, so far for two traveling, there have been no real issues.

Budget Luxury and Fun To Drive

Fun to drive, looks good, the leather seats are super comfortable, Bose sound is much improved over my 2015 cx 5, wheels also look great. Regular gear shift, not CVT. The NAVI is a little weird, but also way better than on the old CX-5.


  • Styling: Swoop
  • Technology and Entertainment: Bose sounds good, easy on the ears for a long drive, adaptive cruise control
  • Seat Comfort: Leather seats super comfy


  • Dashboard: Gas and hood buttons right next to each other! Opened the hood instead a few times.
