Great minus the buggy technology

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Most of the vehicle is great. The only issue I have had is with the center console radio/screen. When I use Bluetooth to connect to my phone it will freeze. If I am on a phone call it will cut out a lot on my receiver's end and this happens often. When I mentioned it to my dealership they said it's probably because my phone isn't close enough to the receiver but I have it right next to the dashboard, not in a pocket or anything. I also wish it had come with apple play or Samsung play. Not a huge deal to me but it would have been nice. I love the safety features. When I put on my turn signal, my vehicle detects if there is a vehicle in my way and beeps at me. It's a nice feature to have in addition to checking blind spots. The trunk is also very spacious which is my main reason for purchasing the Mazda CX-5.

A car that looks cool on the outside and is great for your wallet.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Overall, I love my CX-5 touring. The deep red it comes in is the best red I've ever seen in the market. As for the seating, it could be more comfortable but it's okay. I am not really a big fan of having the controller next to the gear shift bar. I understand the thinking behind it but it's a nuisance when you have a pet. My dog will step on where all the controllers are and accidentally turn the radio station off. I just rather have these things on the dashboard. When driving, even though the car only has 4 cylinder, it goes uphill easily. I drive mainly in the city and my average mpg is about 25 miles. I also love how perfect the size of this car. I can park just about anywhere because it is small to fit in small spaces. I love it.

Black, suede and leather seats, a comfortable and beautiful touch.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Mazda CX-5 has always been my dream car. I've adored it for years. When the time finally came that I needed a new car I knew exactly what I wanted. The car is sleek looking, inside and out. I love the placement of the buttons on the center console. The touch screen panel along with the turn knob makes things so simple to change. I can clearly hear anyone on the phone with me as well as they can hear me loud and clear, no static and it doesn't sound like I am talking from inside of a well. My leather and suede seats are beautiful and comfortable. I am constantly told how beautiful the car is and how comfortable it is to ride in. I absolutely adore my CX-5.

Mazda CX-5 for Driving Fun!

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

This is my second CX-5. I loved the first one, but when my lease was completed, I asked about any new features that the new CX-5 had. I loved the new features, including all around vehicle monitoring, drifting out of your lane signaling, automatic headlights, and the display panel was much easier to see. Things I couldn't live without- backup camera, blind spot monitoring and the automatic trunk opener! I love my CX-5, and I will probably buy this one at the end of the lease,

In love with my 2018 Mazda CX-5

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Smooth riding, has the feel of a bigger vehicle. Gas mileage is good for a small SUV. Love the driver assist cruise control. It reads your text messages and voicemail, which is very convenient. Comfortable seating. Sound system is great. Love the feature where the remote key never has to leave your purse, including locking the car. You just walk away. My only criticism is the rear hatch only open if vehicle is shut off. Overall I love this vehicle.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring Review on comfort and safety.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Mazda vehicles are highly rated for safety and performance. My CX-5 Touring gets great gas mileage and provides a smooth, comforting ride. I do wish that the trunk had a automatic button to open rather than the manual pull to release option. I am also not a huge fan of the overly cautious safety response that brakes for you while driving. The car doesn't judge distance quite like a human would which could cause an accident from unnecessary braking.

- Betty C

I really like the ease and comfort of the commander/captain controls.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

The cup holders need to be redesigned. Both my wife and I are plus size people, and it's hard to keep 2 decent sized cups in them. The car is fast, good on gas, and a pleasure to drive. I do also wish they had the XM radio option. I had to cancel my subscription. I also enjoy the fact that it has plenty of space, especially in the back. I also enjoy the back lift gate, with the automatic open and close option.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Automatic High beams!

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

I have not had any problems with this vehicle yet. It performs well so far in all weather conditions. I love the automatic windshield wipers and high beams! the passenger area is a little compact. My boyfriend is about 5'8' and is uncomfortable in the passenger seat. We have a rear facing car seat behind that seat not allowing the front seat to be pushed back much at all. The trunk has adequate storage space.

A Great Vehicle That Was Made For Everyone

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

The Mazda CX-5 is a great overall vehicle. I have had 0 maintenance issues with the vehicle at 60,000 miles. I got the Apple CarPlay added to the vehicle when it came out and it has made the overall ease and use of the infotainment center perfect for the vehicle. It is small in size when driving but gives you great interior space in the front, back, and even the trunk.

- Vin B

Best small SUV on the road!

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

This is my second cx-5 and fifth mazda vehicle! The cx-5 is very comfortable, incredibly reliable and well built. I love this car. I have it in red and they happen to make the nicest color red on the road, imho! . The heated seats get warm very fast and I use this feature a lot! . I haven't had any issues with this cx-5. Great car!

Stylish mid-size SUV with lots of conveniences.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Looks great, smooth ride, great entertainment system. Car play now available to have installed which is fantastic! Trunk space is great for a mid-size SUV. I wish there was a bit more storage available in the front seat. USB ports are very convenient, both in the center armrest and the one in the back seat.

- Tracey M

The best thing about the car is the new technology that it has.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

The car is actually an amazing car. It has absolutely everything that one would need plus more!! It drives nice and everyone who comes into the car feels extremely safe. I as well believe that the car looks super luxurious for the amount of money that is actually costs, I would recommend to anyone.

Trading my Scion tC for my Mazda was the best decision I could make!

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

I traded in my Scion tC for my Mazda CX-5 for more comfort and room. Was really impressed with all the features included in my Mazda versus the Scion for the same price. I have only 20,000 miles on it right now and have never had an issue. Runs great! I'm glad I made this purchase.

Mazda review on 2018 CV-5

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

There are no problems with the car. The breaks are very firm. The wheel is very tight and has a lot of resistance turning. It has very good acceleration. The seats are amazingly comfortable. It is really easy to sleep in there. And there are a lot of cool features like sport mode.

- John D

Mazda seats age within a couple months of purchase

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

I love the performance of the vehicle. The tech features are also really great. The audio is fantastic. The seats and dealership experience has been horrible. They seats wrinkled and sagged with in 4 months of brand new purchase. Still fighting with warranty about a solution.

- Kate K

Great Safety Features on Mazda CX 5

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

It is extremely comfortable and reliable. I have never felt unsafe in my cx 5. I really enjoy the safety features such as the rearview camera and the lane assists function. I wasn't really looking for a car with all of these bells and whistles, but I really do enjoy them.

- Laura E

Safest vehicle I have ever driven

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

The Mazda CX-5 is a very reliable vehicle! It has many safety features such as lane keep assist, back up camera, and it matches the speed of vehicles on the road when in cruise control. It is a great car for those who travel a lot or just have a far distance to travel.

- Maria M

Young mom stays hip in a Mazda

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

I love my Mazda. It's small and safe but has a little bit of zip to it which makes it fun to drive. I love the interior and the seats are super comfortable. It is the perfect size for having children and a dog. I would definitely purchase another Mazda in the future.

- Carrie D

Luxury without the price tag

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Not the best on gas but it is a midsize SUV. Power is there if that's what you're looking for. All the luxury of a luxury car without the crazy price tag. A lot of trunk space, very comfortable for passengers in the front and back seats. All around amazing!

- Kristin C

CX-5 Pure Driving Pleasure!

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

No issues with performance, does have a sport mode that can be used for extra burst of speed. It handles really well, is very comfortable and I love the cruise control assist function. I also love the color (eternal blue), the Bose stereo and the sunroof.

- Deborah S

The best SUV, complete amazing car!

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

My husband and I, we really love this vehicle! No problem at least. It is so much comfortable, beautiful and very practical. The automatic system is the best. Bluetooth and navigation are good also. It's the basic model, but for me is already complete.

- louis N

I love my Mazda--it feels so safe!

2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring

I feel very safe in my car. I love that the display is up high and is controlled at hand level. The GPS display on the window is wonderful. I always know the current speed limit. We also had Apple Play installed and it's AMAZING to sync up to phone
