2017 mazda cx

Since its 2012 debut, the Mazda CX-5 has been praised widely & consistently for its inspiring steering & confident handling, peppy & efficient four-cylinder engine, engaging exterior, and handsome interior designs. Even at the over of its first generation, the Mazda CX-5 continued khổng lồ win comparisons lượt thích our recent Big chạy thử of 2016-2017 small crossovers. Three easy-to-navigate trim levels và short options lists have made buying decisions simple, so it"s no wonder it has surpassed the Mazda3 as the company"s best-seller at just over 112,000 units. For 2017, this excellence remains, yet myriad changes further improve the redesigned CX-5.

Being a relatively modest-sized automaker compared to lớn its competitors, Mazda"s way is to analyze every component và system in the vehicle, find a way to improve its performance, efficiency, or appearance, và then engineer parts and methods to lớn achieve its goals. One would think such a strategy would be pervasive in the tự động industry, but it"s not—at least not on the granular (one might say obsessive) cấp độ that exists within Mazda.

You want examples? Piston ring edges now have differing radii for oil-sweeping (down-) & smearing (up-) strokes. All displays have matching fonts. The door pulls" contours better fit the profile of human fingers, rather than penguin flippers. Then there are the dozen-plus measures taken to ensure the quite noticeable reduction in interior noise levels: revisions lớn the floor pan, wipers tucked below the hoodline, a thicker windshield, recontoured (and thinner) A-pillars, acoustic front side glass, multitudes of additional door và window seals, a new headliner, carpeted sound-reflective surfaces in the cargo area, and a felt-lined aero under-tray. All this without cheating with active noise cancelation from the audio speakers. These are among the subtle, luxurious details that địa chỉ up to a crossover punching well above its weight class.


For the 2017 CX-5, Mazda focused on four main areas: improving throttle response và linearity, reducing noise, vibration, & harshness, improving ride comfort, & maintaining its class-leading steering và handling. While they were at it, Mazda redesigned the already-classy exterior and interior lớn portray a more premium compact crossover, further distinguishing it among its many rivals. Did they succeed? Yes, on all counts.

The still-evocative Kodo-themed exterior has matured in a restrained manner. It works. There"s a minimalist cohesiveness that doesn"t look like a motif painted onto a crossover"s two-box canvas. The larger, vertical grille floats atop standard LED headlamp assemblies, and these elements portray a face with more depth, sophistication, and presence. Mazda went khổng lồ great lengths to lớn ensure that the widening spear shape along the flanks from the beltline downward reflects light with subtle sculpting. Similarly, at the rear, taillights narrow, và attention was paid to simplifying the bumper & hatch.


You"d need micrometers khổng lồ verify it, but the CX-5"s silhouette grows slightly in length (0.4 inch) and width (0.1 inch). Its roof is 0.4 inch lower. In terms of its footprint, wheelbase shrinks 0.1 inch, but the track width increases by almost 0.4 inch up front & 0.3 inch in the rear. The CX-5"s interior dimensions shrink by fractions of an inch, but rear-seat legroom grows 0.3 inch, and a feeling of roominess comes from seat backs that now recline from 24 to lớn 28 degrees (rather than a fixed 22 degrees) for more comfort.

Flat-box shoppers will be pleased to lớn learn that the cargo bay no longer has a slight step when the rear seats are folded forward, but the consequence is a slightly raised floor (2.2 inches) that reduces overall volume by 3.2 or 5.2 cubic feet with rear seats up or folded, respectively. Total measurements are still competitive at 30.9 cubic feet nominal & 59.6 cubic feet maximum. The rear hatch now has the option of nguồn assist và programmable height.

Particularly in the Grand Touring trim with two-tone treatment, the revamped interior has an upscale thiết kế that evokes Audi"s clinical modernism. Although much of the switchgear is carryover, the new look emphasizes symmetry, simplicity, và intuitive operation. Visually, the dashboard looks less monolithic, & the pad is now sculpted và stitched. The standard 7.0-inch full-color touchscreen display is now freestanding lượt thích those in a Mercedes-Benz.


The optional GT Premium package we drove featured perforated leather seats, heated front và rear, with French double stitching plus an eight-way nguồn driver"s seat with power nguồn lumbar support. This $1,830 package also includes a color head-up display (HUD) with traffic sign recognition, a driver"s memory seat that includes the HUD angle, a power front passenger"s seat, a heated steering wheel, and a windshield wiper deicer. If Mazda interior designers were aiming for a mainstream, premium vibe, they succeeded.

All 2017 CX-5s are powered by a revised 187-hp, 185-lb-ft 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine routed through a recalibrated six-speed automatic transmission. (Sport MT with its 2.0-liter engine went away.) There are still three trim packages: the base thể thao starts at $24,985 with front drive, $26,285 with all-wheel drive. To lớn either of these add $1,870 for the Touring package or $5,350 for the Grand Touring gear. All CX-5s feature Mazda"s engine-torque-regulated G-Vectoring, which effectively tidies up cornering behavior, seemingly with telepathy & without using the brakes.

The touring trim adds self-leveling headlamps, rear HVAC vents, two rear USB ports (2A), và privacy glass. Seating surfaces change from cloth lớn leatherette with faux suede, the HVAC system from manual lớn dual-zone automatic, và remote entry khổng lồ keyless. Safety gear expands to include blind-spot monitoring và rear cross-traffic alert.


Nearly half of CX-5 shoppers over up going for the mainstream, premium vibe. As such, the Grand Touring trim further adds 19-inch wheels, curve-following automatic headlamps, LED foglights and taillights, heated/auto-dimming mirrors, automatic wipers, a power rear hatch, leather seating, a sunroof, an improved 10-speaker Bose audio system with satellite radio, and navigation. The safety net expands khổng lồ radar-based adaptive cruise control with full stop-start capability, lane departure warning/assist, và automatic high-beams.


In the past generation"s tests, we raved about the CX-5"s class-leading confident handling, intuitive driveline response, & competitive acceleration. To lớn be clear, the 2017 version is even better. The throttle and transmission are quick khổng lồ react khổng lồ the driver"s right foot. Mazda has chosen to keep the responsive six-speed transmission for this very reason—other automakers have added cogs and thus suffer triple-gear kickdowns when you squeeze, squeeze, và continue lớn squeeze the throttle down. Plus, the CX-5 neither jumps to đứng top gear at part throttle nor wavers agonizingly, as bởi vì some CVT-equipped competitors. This immediacy is sharpened further with the thể thao button. Because old-to-new reported curb weights are just 66 pounds different và the engine output đầu ra rose by only 3 horsepower, we"re going to predict Grand Touring AWD acceleration will be the same, a competitive 7.8-second dash to lớn 60 mph.


Despite re-engineering its dampers to have less friction, thus resulting a more compliant ride, the CX-5 doesn"t float or wallow—ever. Indeed, Mazda kept the CX-5"s trademark confident handling (now with fluid-filled control-arm bushings) và enhanced steering directness (now with a rigid-mounted rack). The steering weight has become a little heavier this time around, but that"s a good thing. It really is a unique quality in this class khổng lồ offer such an isolated, comfortable ride but retain class-leading handling.


Relentless analysis, tweaking, designing, and testing have improved the 2017 Mazda CX-5 from an already-standout model. In last year"s Big Test, the outgoing Mazda CX-5 was still good enough to lớn win in a field of nine competitors—narrowly edging out a Honda CR-V that was also in the final year of its model cycle. With both the Mazda and Honda redesigned (and further improved) for 2017, it"s going lớn be a dogfight to determine which is the best compact crossover of the bunch.
