Mazda CX-5 SUV 2014 review:
The Mazda CX-5 is the Japanese brand’s latest crossover compact SUV, competing with the Skoda Yeti and Volkswagen Tiguan. Sporty to drive, the CX-5 is available in both two and four wheel drive, with either a 173bhp 2.2-litre diesel or a 163bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine. Two transmissions are offered, a six-speed manual and a six speed-automatic. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, and there’s a large boot. Drivers should expect plenty of kit as standard, including a touchscreen sat-nav device and safety aids, like lane keep assist. Front-wheel drive versions are sure to be popular, offering lower running costs plus a more enjoyable drive.
