The 2017 Mazda CX-5 has been fully redesigned. Though its dimensions haven't changed, it's smoother and quieter to drive. Other improvements include sharper styling, a more upscale cabin and some new features. Its engine and automatic transmission are largely carried over, though last year's manual transmission is no longer available.

Pros
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
Quieter on the highway than before

Cons
Not as powerful as some rivals

By:

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 takes a lot of small steps forward, but are any of them big enough changes to sway buyers?
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is new this year, and improves upon last year's model with a better interior and exterior look, quieter ride, a new-ish standard engine, and a coming turbodiesel that could be among the leaders for small crossovers in highway mileage. It's offered in Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims with varying levels of creature comforts.

Pros
Best-looking compact crossover, by our eyes
Improved interior
Excellent driveability
Fold-flat rear seats

Cons
Not dramatically different than outgoing model
Turbodiesel arriving later this year
Finicky infotainment system
Small-ish cargo area
