2012 Mazda CX-5 Fits the Urban Landscape Well [Video]
text size: A- A+
This is actually Mazda’s attempt to steal sales from the Toyota RAV4 and VW Tiguan, but it’s still too early to say if they will be successful.
Mazda can fit two engines and a pair of transmission behind that stubby nose. The first option is a 2.0-liter gasoline engine delivering around 165 hp, but if you want a diesel the only choice is the 2.2-liter turbocharged unit with 170 hp. These can be mated to either a choice of either six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
Expect to see the CX-5 on a city block near you at the end of the year.

It looks like the bastard cleft palate child of a BMW and a Volvo.

They have their own niche. Who bought the CX7, anyways? Just over-confident rich people...

Great lookin crossover. I'm stoked that they're offering it up with a 6 spd manual. I've got a '05 Mazda 3s and love it.
