When I first began reviewing rides (a long time ago), if you would’ve told me that of all the automotive brands I’d work with, I’d be pleasantly surprised with each Mazda ride I’ve ever driven – I’d probably laugh. For some reason, prior to my first Mazda drive – I knew very little about its offerings or the brand itself. (Except for the Zoom, Zoom commercials of yesteryear… Mazda definitely hit the mark of ingraining that phrase in my brain forever!)
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring to start is roomy, technologically advanced and a joy to drive! Pair that with the fact that it was named a 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick and you’ve got yourself a stylish & award-winning ride worth talking about!
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 designed a refined cockpit that’s welcoming, intuitive and beautifully crafted. Soft materials and thoughtful accents add to the CX-5’s secure and sophisticated atmosphere.

Like all Mazdas, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 was designed with performance in mind. When you get behind the wheel of the CX-5, you instantly recognize that style and performance is never compromised for fuel efficiency. In order to enhance the driving experience with both automotive performance and advanced technology. Mazda’s SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY was created as a unique engineering approach that gives drivers a better driving experience with equally impressive EPA-estimated MPG.
From the body construction down to the grill. From the engine technology, transmission, framework and even the gasoline intake, every aspect of the vehicle is engineered to maximize driving dynamics and efficiency. A crossover SUV that is fuel efficient without skimping on style and design is an important factor that I don’t take for granted.
Starting at $28,570 the CX-5 comfortably seats five plus more with an abundance of front and rear passenger legroom, passenger volume and cargo volume than Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson. The easy-release split fold-down rear seatback lets you customize seating with up to 65.4 cubic feet of cargo space – making it the crossover you’ve dreamed about (in one of my favorite auto colors imaginable – “Soul Red”.)
It’s sporty yet chic, tech savvy yet powerful, it’s the 2016 Mazda CX-5 and it’s all the crossover style you’ll ever need. Need I say more? Schedule a test drive behind the wheel of your next Mazda or get insight on the 2016 Mazda lineup and beyond at MazdaUSA.com today!
