Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 ranked #2 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Mazda CX-5 has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent handling
Comfortable, supportive seats
Upscale interior

Cons
Cumbersome infotainment system
Unimpressive cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

As long as cargo space isn’t your main reason for buying a compact crossover, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is an excellent, fun-to-drive choice.

Pros
Attractive styling inside and out
Poised chassis, communicative steering
Engine changes bode well for mpg
Good value, especially considering high spec level
Rear seats fold flat

Cons
Frustrating infotainment setup
Light cargo volume
Short on refinement

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 largely carries over from the previous model year, when it was extensively redesigned. New for 2018 are such standard features as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Also new is cylinder-deactivation technology intended to improve fuel economy slightly. The 2.5-liter engine automatically shuts down the two outside cylinders at cruising speeds to maximize efficiency. Last year's Grand Select trim level has been discontinued for 2018.

PROS
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
Stays quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Not as powerful as some rivals

By:

The facelifted 2018 Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment?

Pros
Still looks smart
Above-average cabin practicality
Improved on-road refinement
Good cabin build quality
AEB now standard across the range

Cons
It's pretty expensive
Can feel underpowered
Key active safety reserved for top models
Ti, adaptive cruise not here until mid-2018
Tyre roar, busy ride on 19-inch wheels
Still no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

By: 
caradvice.com.au

Pros
Spacious interior for size
Addition of AEB
Good comfort equipment list

Cons
Aggressive tyre choice spoils ride
Space saver spare tyre
No Apple Carplay or Android Auto
