The 2017 Mazda CX-5: Overall Good Drive For A Crossover
Crossovers are coming out more often. This is the case for the 2017 Mazda CX-5, which is overall a good drive for a crossover. Crossovers overall are essentially a hybrid between a sedan and a full SUV. That means handling could be a challenge. The Mazda CX-5 though defies this crossover trait.
The Mazda CX-5 handles itself well, which makes it different from other crossovers. It can be good when going through rough terrain, where it is in its best element. This is made possible by new low-friction struts at the front. This gives the CX-5 a smooth ride even over rough terrain.
For even more stability, Mazda has given it the G-Vectoring Control. This is the use of electronics to transfer weight to the front when moving. This gives the CX-5 then better handling. For better handling as well, hydraulic bushings have been added to reduce vibration.
The new Mazda CX-5 has a 2.5-liter engine and automatic transmission. This replaces the older 2,0-liter engine, though at the same time the manual transmission has been ditched, which might be a detraction for some enthusiasts. Quicker engine response has been given to it though with new pistons and rings, according to Autoweek.
The design is possibly the most noticeable change for the new CX-5. The headlights have been noted to be much slimmer than the previous model. The rear fenders have been more pronounced, while its grille has a slight protrusion to it. The overall impression is that the CX-5 looks like a smaller version of the CX-9.
The Mazda CX-5 is quiet on the road, as Car and Driver reported. This is one welcome departure it has over the older model. With a quiet ride along with smooth handling, the new 2017 Mazda CX-5 overall is a good drive for a crossover. Mazda is said to be coming with a diesel variant of it, but that is not certain yet. The new Tesla Model Y has been shown in concepts recently.
