Perfect city car with spices of a SUV

I think it's the best large SUV car for city with a lot of safety options. The only weakness is the awkward infotainment system which needs overhaul! I guess CV joints would be a problem in the long run. Show details

Safe 7 seater

Great family car with plenty of room across the width, length and boot without the car being too wide or long to maneuver. Excellent amount of storage space to go away for the weekend and pack in everything you need for the kids and be comfortable to enjoy the drive and safe. Mazda include lots of safety from airbags to the speed display on the windscreen. Rear climate control and individualised climate control in the front are some advantages too! Show details

So far can't fault it

Excellent sales staff.
Punchy Na (naturally aspirated) petrol engine!!
Excellent price for what you get compared to other SUVs
Comfortable in all seats
7 Excellent seats
Rear climate control is invaluable
Drives like a car not a large suv
Use it daily as family car, easy to drive in heavy traffic, highway and hills driving. Show details

Awesome but has its faults

Have owned for 10 months and done 9500kms
It has had 2 oil changes and both rear pads and rotors replaced under warranty. It has also had infotainment system and rear speakers fixed under warranty.

Is and amazing car when it's not in the shop.
This is my 5th brand new mazda and the one I have had most trouble with.

It's used daily and never goes offroad.

Would still recommend but I feel I may have just been unlucky so far. Show details

Great value for money with all the features you can imagine

Great for family transport with a third row. Economical on Deisel, service costs are great value for money. This car is a great all round option, stylish yet full of features like Navigation, great sound system, mats, and comfortable seating for all passengers. Show details

Great SUV at nice price

It has been nearly a year since we bought this car & it has been wonderful experience until now. The car provides a LOT of extras, safety feature at quite competitive price. It is smaller than CX-9 which helps in maneuverability. The diesel engine has nice torque & car feels responsive. The diesel engine is quite frugal as well, returning good real-world mileage. All premium Mazda safety features like EBS, Adaptive cruise control, lane-assist are present in this car along with Heads-up display. Head up display is QUITE useful; & very happy that Mazda included it in base model.
Overall very nice SUV! Show details
