Fantastic car, navigation system is poor
I have now owned my Mazda CX-5 touring Diesel for over 2 years now. It is a fantastic car, comfortable seats, great fuel economy about 7 liters per hundred KM including city driving. Have taken this on long trips. The care handles really well and has plenty of power going up hills. Boot space is good and I can easily put the seats down for more space.
Only thing negative is the navigation system. No touch screen, not at all intuitive,voice recognition is limited, and the tutorial is next to useless. I find I am now using google on my m...obile instead which is so easy to use and updates for traffic. I only use the Mazda car navigation when I need satellite navigation. Mazda wake up and let your system integrate with Google play, your navigation system is poor.
Purchased in December 2017 for $43,000.00.
LOVE my New Car!
Parkland Mazda, W.A. were the great people who sold me my first New Car last week. I absolutely LOVE this Car, and can't believe its mine, its such a pleasure to drive - very economical, very light on the steering and whisper quiet. A/C and Sound is great, along with the stylish interior. Turbo Diesel is also very economical and highly recommended. I recommend this Car thoroughly - you won't be sorry you chose it! Thanks Parkland Mazda.
Outstanding car, sensors really useful
Bought a new CX-5 touring turbo diesel in December 2017 and have done 2k's. This car is really smooth with plenty of power to climb and accelerate. I love the rear camera with sensors that detect cross traffic, blind spot sensor, and front sensors that detect pedestrians. All this makes me a safer driver and helps me park the car in tight spaces. I need to spend some time understanding the navigation although my wife has read the manual and has figured this out, we are also not sure how to get voice commands to do more than basic navigation like navigate home. The turbo diesel got about 6.3L/100KM on long distance driving and 7.5 in the city. Outstanding vehicle, drives great, very comfortable I am very happy with this purchase.
