Queen Beez Buzz: Mazda


Tuesday, May 14, 2013


I am very impressed by this product. It's stylish, roomy, priced right, and highly entertaining. And it gets 29 mpg combined without much effort but it's just not all that speedy when you really want it to 
be. I'll need to axe such phrases going forward, because for 2014, Mazda offers a CX-5 powered by a rev-loving 184-horsepower Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter I-4 that'll definitely woo America's stoplight-launching CUV crowd. It packs 29 more horses and 35 more lb-ft (total of 185 lb-ft) than last year's 2.0-liter engine, and, according to the EPA, is hardly any thirstier for fuel. Official ratings for the front-wheel-drive version remain highly respectable at 25/32 city/highway, while those with all-wheel drive get 24/30. Both, says Mazda, have an estimated 430-mile single tank range. Unlike the base Sport with the 2.0-liter mill that can be had with a six-speed manual gearbox, Touring and GT buyers will only get a six-speed automatic.
All in all its a wonderful car line.
