Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

At first that may seem faintly ridiculous, but when you look at the Venn diagram of price, proportions and performance, the Ateca lives in a little world of its own. To get vaguely comparable speed and power from any other medium-sized SUV, you’re looking at spending around £50k+ on a Porsche Macan S or an Audi SQ5.
But although it may be marooned in its own micro-sector, that doesn’t mean it has a free pass. A £40,000-ish Seat – sorry, Cupra – has a lot to prove, starting with how it drives

Pros
Hot hatch performance with SUV styling and practicality

Cons
£40k for a Seat with somewhat unconvincing branding

By: 
topgear.com

The Cupra Ateca SUV is a brilliant family car that’s fast and great to drive, but you’ll have to accept its gloomy interior and boy racer exterior complete with tuner-esque branding.

Pros
Surprisingly nimble
Fizzing performance
Still practical

Cons
Boy racer looks
Dark, gloomy interior
A VW Golf R costs less

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
