Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 crossover has some priorities out of order; it doles out fine handling while it delivers a skimpy back seat.

Pros
Looks good inside and out
Taut ride and handling
Available turbo power
Decent value in most trims

Cons
Turbo lag
Moderate acceleration in base version
Cramped back seat
Inferior infotainment

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2021, the most notable upgrade made to the CX-5 is its new infotainment system. A 10.3-inch touchscreen now sits atop the dashboard instead of the smaller 7.0-inch display found on previous model years. The updated system features the new Mazda Connect interface, Mazda Connected Services (a Wi-Fi hotspot and access to remote vehicle functions through a smartphone app), and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Luxury aura without the luxury price,
engaging driving behavior,
expeditious turbo engine.

Cons
Base engine accelerates leisurely,
competitors have more cargo space,
tows only 2000 pounds.
