The 2018 Mazda CX-5 Sets The Standard

Describing the driving performance of the 2018 Mazda CX-5 as nice and fun would be doing a grave injustice to this dazzling vehicle. Much of its exciting performance can be attributed to the overall confidence of this crossover. If we know our friends in Wesmont, IL, like we believe we do, we know for certain that they will appreciate the exciting drive that the CX-5 delivers.

Direct steering, sharp steering and a greatly tuned chassis, lends to the brilliant performance of 2018 Mazda. The shift delay between the first and second gears add some kick to the acceleration of the large engine. The drive is comfortable and has been enhanced by some great technological enhancements. Keeping inside of your lane is a simple task and an important aspect is the lack of driver fatigue on any terrain.

With the 2018 Mazda CX-5 falling into such an affordable 'price bracket,' one would expect it to lack interior luxury and more importantly, functionality. One would be proved sadly mistaken, as Mazda is renowned for their great value for money. Competitors in this class could have learnt a lot from Mazda, but alas, the 'ship has already sailed.'

Three trim option forms part of the CX-5 line up and each with their own ingenuity and levels of comfort and add on packages.

The engine is mated to an automatic 6 speed gearbox. You have option of a four wheel drive across all trim levels. The CX 5 brought out their CX-5 range with a standard front wheel drive that delivers all the drive power that you might need.  

Tech Features

Cylinder active displacement assists the Mazda CX-5 in further increasing its fuel efficiency. This system ingeniously saves fuel when you are coasting. The independent struts at the front of the crossover are pretty well designed. Paired with the multi link configuration at the back, uneven road surfaces will feel just as smooth as freshly laid tarmac. The steering system is electric, well balanced and really well versed at holding a straight line.
