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.

New infotainment system with a larger screen.Remote monitoring and control through a smartphone app.Top Signature trim gains some new safety features.

PROS

Optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Base engine's lackluster acceleration

By: 
edmunds.com

Heated wiper blades and seats (AWD only), power child locks, and a rear 12-volt outlet added to base trim.R-Design and Inscription add 14-speaker stereo, blind-spot monitoring, keyless entry and drive, power-folding rear outer head restraints, and a parking assistance system.Convenience, Vision, and Climate packages replaced with similar Premium, Multimedia and Advanced packagesThe 2019 Volvo XC60 is one of the strongest contenders in the luxury SUV segment.

Pros
Modern interior looks beautiful
Plenty of available amenities and luxury options
Abundant power from plug-in hybrid powertrain
Seat comfort is unparalleled

Cons
Not as fun to drive as most competitors
Smaller cargo area behind rear seats than before
Not as quiet as other cabins in the segment
Even with air suspension, the ride is fairly busy
