The Mazda CX-5 has recently been awarded ‘best large SUV of the year’ in the sub-£25,000 category at the 2016 What Car? Awards. What Car awarded the Mazda CX-5 a five star rating due to the quality and practicality of its interior fittings, the economic engine and hot handling.
In fact, What Car have pin pointed 10 reasons why the Mazda CX-5 is worthy of such award; and therefore superior over increasingly fierce competition within the SUV market.
Every Mazda CX-5 boasts a generous amount of equipment, including “dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, satellite navigation, automatic lights and wipers, bluetooth connectivity and cruise control”. The rear seats can be folded down, which in addition to the clever boot of further useful storage furniture, gives the Mazda CX-5 an estate like capacity.
The Mazda CX-5’s 2.2 litre Skyactiv-D 150 engine is a preferred choice within the SUV market. “It pulls well from low down in the rev change” which allows for impressive fuel economy and low CO2 emissions, saving you money both whilst you fill up your car and when paying your tax bill.
The Mazda CX-5 has been praised for handling like a much smaller car. “Its light, accurate steering makes low speed manoeuvres a breeze and therefore one of the best-handling SUVs around”.
“Mazda, as a brand, has excellent reputation for reliability”. What’s more, when you buy the Mazda CX-5, you receive a three year or 60,000 mile warranty. “Safety is another of Mazda’s strong suits”, the Mazda CX-5 scored five stars when tested by Euro NCAP.
