Mazda debuted the Cx-5 crossover back in 2013, right at the front of the crossover craze that swept the United States auto industry and was poised to take the world by storm. As a compact crossover, it was made to have sporty appeal and a fun driving experience in addition to having the versatility and space of a larger vehicle. Now, the redesigned 2017 CX-5 is back and better than ever with a long list of improvements.
New vs. Old
Prior to its redesign, the Mazda CX-5 was renowned for being attractive, a fun ride, and fuel efficient. However, there were a few issues – such as a noisy engine and a cheap interior. The new interior is packed with rich materials and the outgoing engine and transmission duo is being replaced with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a minor power boost. Additionally, inside the CX-5, the cabin is better insulated for a more relaxing experience.
The redesigned 2017 CX-5 still deliver the same driving experience and fuel economy we’d expect from a Mazda. With a lightweight and aerodynamic build that makes for more nimble handling while preserving fuel economy. Curious? Stop in Wantagh Mazda today and take the 2017 Mazda CX-5 for a test drive; it’ll blow your mind.
