Amazing suv

Have a 2023 model, the build is very good, interior feel moat premium than other japanese make. Good power from 2.5T but it’s a drinker, suspension tune is so impressive. Show details

Love it

We bought August 2022 cx5 petrol turbo akera. Bought to have the safety of surround cameras, have the open road truck passing go of a turbo ( last car 2.5l mazda6), have the awd to go off on dirt roads, under clearance to use dirt roads. 3 weeks into ownership reversed into ditch outside Jindabyne, left front wheel basically off the dirt...selected off road and the traction control on 3 wheels drove dar out of ditch ( in mazda6 a tow job). Turbo has good power. Akera is very quiet abd smooth. City fuel economy about 15l a 100k, whereas open road about 7l a 100klm Show details

Buyer Beware!

Beware Mazda do not honor the warranty you receive when you buy a new vehicle from them, they pick and choose what they want to cover note: don't rest your arm on the arm rest because if it cracks and caves in they will not replace it under warranty, truly poor quality cheap plastics used. High priced vehicle with sub standard quality in various areas of this vehicle, they ignore you hoping you and the problem go away. Well I will be going away....I won't buy another Mazda ever ! Show details

Definitely a drivers SUV!

The CX-5 is used for mainly commuting as well as the occasional long drive.

With the leather seats (cool / heated at the front), LED lighting inside and out, HUD, bose sound system and safety features paired with a petrol turbo it really feels like a premium SUV. It is a great car to drive with its 6 speed auto.

Boot space is a little smaller compared to other SUVs but it is also easier to park.

Car is serviced in line with recommended timing / distance and is reasonably priced (though not capped). Show details
