Mazda CX-5

Price $24,900 – $34,700
Fuel consumption 7.4 – 10.2 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 87%(view ratings)
The first vehicle designed with the now widespread KODO design philosophy, the Mazda CX-5 is back without major changes for 2017. But its style isn't outdated yet. Its dimensions put it in the compact SUV category. Available with a 2.0-litre or a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, manual or automatic transmissions and front- or all-wheel drivetrains, the CX-5 is very popular in these parts. The current version will be replaced soon.
