Excellent design and quality. Mediocre performance and drive train.
This vehicle came with a 75000/72 month warranty and is very reliable. The performance is fantastic; acceleration is great for a 4 cylinder engine. The turbo works much better in this vehicle than the heavier cx 9. The brakes are just okay. They do not have the best stopping power but it is sufficient enough to not be dangerous. Other vehicles that I have driven have had much better stopping power. The interior is very luxurious. The seats are very comfortable and the features and amenities are aplenty. The heads up display is perfect and does not interfere or distract the driver. Android auto was a nice touch and introduces a whole slew of new features that the standard infotainment system does not have. The exterior design is beautiful and very aerodynamic. Mazda needs to introduce AWD to their sedan lines though as living in New England requires it. I often find the front tires slipping if the road is the tiniest bit wet.
