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).
My real experience with Mazda Australia and Penfold Burwood after getting my CX-5 - 4 days with engine issue
I am a fan of CX-5 before I meet below so sad story with Mazda in Australia.
I have a CX-5 2012 in my country and it almost never have issue since 2013 to Oct, 2019.
I arrived at Melb in Oct, 2019 and with no think I buy CX-5 cause I trust the product and Mazda. But below sad experience really make me sick and I will sell my CX-5 and buy a new car in other brand.
