The Japanese manufacturer advertised the CX-5 as not being just a regular compact SUV.

And for sure, that does sound like marketing, however, we cannot deny that the CX-5 was one of the best looking compact crossover on the market.

For 2016, the looks didn’t change very much, and that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, as the Mazda’s design was popular and liked all over the world.

The front changes included dynamic steering LED headlamps and LED foglamps, while the back was fitted with angry-looking full LED taillamps.

From the side profile, the CX-5 was reminiscent to the BMW’s crossovers. While looking at the rear windows line, it gave the impression that the passengers in the back would have limited headroom.

However, the headroom available in the back was fairly generous, as well as the legroom, and that made the CX-5 a good choice for longer trips with more than 2 people.

A small downside, due to the sloping rear glass, the CX-5 offered less cargo room.

Under the hood, the CX-5 came with a choice of two engines: a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that developed 155 hp. This engine was mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, with no automatic gearbox as an option.

The more powerful 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine cranked out 184 hp and was fitted with an automatic transmission.

Economy wise, the 2.0-liter engine offered a great fuel consumption.
