Review of the 2014 Mazda CX-5

May 1st, 2013 by

2014 Mazda6Mazda has always been one of the industry leaders when it comes to designing high quality, high performance vehicles. That’s why we at Biggers Mazda were so excited to get a chance to experience the new 2014 Mazda CX-5. The 2014 model of this sporty SUV offers a whole new world of driving excellence that goes above and beyond the design of previous models.

Roomy Interior Design

Mazda really went all-out with the 2014 CX-5. It has always been a versatile car, one capable of operating as a sporty roadster while also being useful for a small family. This versatility comes from its body design: it may look sporty, but it has a spacious interior capable of comfortably sitting five passengers. The back seats fold down to create a roomy cabin perfect for hauling sporting goods, pets, and groceries.

Powerful Engine Design

The CX-5 has always had a powerful engine and the 2014 model is no different. It has a 2.0L four-cylinder engine capable of pumping out 155 hp, coupled with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Although you won’t be entering any drag races with the CX-5, it should be powerful enough for anybody looking to enjoy a family oriented SUV. Higher trims, such as the Touring and Grand Touring models, come with a 2.5L four cylinder engine capable of 184 hp. Worried about fuel efficiency? The 2.0L is rated at 35 highway mpg while the 2.5L is rated at 32.

Beautiful Exterior Design

The 2014 CX-5 continues the tradition of a sleek, sporty exterior. Not many changes have been made from last year’s model. The lines seem to be a bit less “harsh” giving it a smoother, aerodynamic look. However, if you were to place the 2013 and the 2014 model side by side, you would have a hard time telling them apart.

Final Verdict?

The 2014 CX-5 might not be a huge update from the 2013, but it offers the same sort of performance and design excellence that have highlighted all past models. Perhaps we’ll see a generation update in the next few years? Until then, you really can’t go wrong with the Mazda 2014 CX-5. Come on down to your local Mazda dealer and test drive one today!
