If I were buying a small crossover SUV, the 2014 Mazda CX-5 would be at the top of my list.

    If memory serves, Magrath wrote the comparo where the CR-V beat the CX-5. The question is this: Is the CR-V the one Magrath would buy for himself? Or did he name the CR-V the winner as a recommendation to everyone else?

    So you're willing to make both of your kids share the same Pack 'n Play by choosing the CX-5? Harsh.

    Just how small do you think the cargo space is? Because it's precisely 0.3 cubes smaller than the Escape's.

    I've owned a CX-5 Grand Touring AWD since April. The cargo space is great. What I really do not like is the gas mileage. It is so way off. I have taken in my car & was told to change gas brands (which I did) and it is still 18-20 for city/hwy combined (I live in Wisconsin now, not like I spend hours on the parking lot known as the Kennedy). I've also had my car in spring and summer with around 20-22 city/hwy mph. I've owned other brands and always gotten at or above manufacturers estimated MPG.

    What has me so angry is that I chose this over another because of the MPG as that is one of the most important details. I would not buy a Mazda again as I don't think being over 20% off on the estimated is acceptable.
  • My 2014 CX5 has been a big step up from our Rogue and offers more room for the driver than a CR-V. The steering is responsive, controls are easy to utilize and the ride is smooth with nice MPG. If I were to make recommendations I would add even more insulation to drown out road noise and a rubber piece to protect the top of the rear bumper cover from package scrapes into and out of the cargo area.
  • CX-5 - NOT impressed. Many rave reviews but the Mazda was Not a great vehicle. Buick Encore was so much better at the same price.
