“Overall, we’re impressed with the 2017 Mazda CX-5. It’s a more grown-up compact crossover than its predecessor, yet it doesn’t cede any ground in its hallmark driver-centric nature. If you’re looking for a small, affordable crossover that feels as if it should cost considerably more, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 is a good first stop.”

For Vernon drivers looking for a premium feel from a crossover without a big price tag, the all-new 2017 Mazda CX-5 checks all the boxes. This model delivers available features like leather upholstery and heated front seats, as well as premium tech like the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment and the i-ACTIVSENSE® driver assist suite, all at an affordable price, regardless of the trim:

  • CX-5 Sport – MSRP from $24,045*

  • CX-5 Touring – MSRP from $25,915*

  • CX-5 Grand Touring – $28,895*

U.S. News & World Report

“If you’re shopping for a crossover, you should consider the 2017 Mazda CX-5. It will appeal to those who place a premium on performance, though you’ll get much more. For a class-average price of just over $24,000, you’ll also get an upscale interior, plenty of features, and ample cargo room.”

Indeed, the Mazda CX-5 does offer up an abundance of cargo room, in addition to its spacious and comfortable seating for up to five adults. The dedicated cargo area in back can be accessed via a newly available Power Liftgate and measures a spacious 30.9 cubic feet. Plus, to open up a max cargo area of 59.6 cubic feet, all you have to do is fold down the easy-release rear seats.

Car and Driver

“It’s apparent as soon as you begin driving Mazda’s new CX-5 that it has an energy that’s absent from its appliance-like competition.”

Arguably the most standout aspect of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 is its dynamic performance capabilities. Like other vehicles in the Mazda lineup–but unlike most competing crossovers–it provides responsive steering and suspension work, as well as a 2.5L inline-four engine that generates a capable 187 hp.
