2013 Mazda CX-5 (continued)

Summary

2013 Mazda CX-5

The all-new Mazda CX-5 impresses us with its fuel economy, comfort, versatility, road manners, styling, and safety features. And while acceleration is so-so, its agility and exceptionally accurate steering make the CX-5 entertaining to drive. All-wheel drive gives it sure footed traction and is the best choice for the Snow Belt. The sportiest setup, however, is a front-wheel-drive CX-5 Sport with manual gearbox.

Tony Swan reported from Detroit, with Mitch McCullough reporting from Monterey, California.
