In the segment of crossover SUVs, the participation from the house of Mazda is a major one. This year, when countless crossover SUV models have been launched, modified and released in the market, Mazda has its own lion’s share in it. Among the appreciable crossover SUV models that come with a Mazda logo, we were more drawn to the 2019 Mazda CX-5 model series. The reason was pretty obvious. Mazda has enhanced the entire lineup of CX-5 series this year, making is yet more interesting than ever before.
When we reached the Scottsdale Mazda dealership showroom to gather its lineup details, we got the opportunity to test drive the lineup as well. So we drove all the 2019 Mazda CX-5 trim models that are named as Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature.
From our test drive with all entire lineup of the 2019 Mazda CX-5, we thought of sharing with you the most important details, that would help you make a choice, if it is time for you to go for a new crossover SUV this year.
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 can be an ideal car for those who want to explore the new destinations driving all alone. Apart from fulfilling all the criteria of being a midsize crossover SUV, like good handling, spacious cabin and rugged performance, one more thing makes the 2019 lineup of Mazda CX-5 carry a stronger appeal, and that is its design that looks extraordinarily handsome for its practical segment.
Powertrain and Road Handling
Mazda has chosen a couple of very able engines to satiate the hunger of strong driving instincts. At the base trim model Sport, it uses a 187-horsepower making inline-4 engine in perfect combination with a 6-speed automatic transmission to generate a moderately quick speed while the level of thrash will surprise you. All-wheel drive is kept as an option on this powertrain.
The other engine powering the top trims, get a 227-hp making 2.5-liter turbo-4 engine that drives at a faster speed in spite of weighing more.
If you don’t find the powertrain to be highly impressive, it will get compensated by the handling that most of the closest rivals of 2019 CX-5 couldn’t achieve.
At the Scottsdale Mazda dealership showroom, our rides with all the trim models of the 2019 Mazda CX-5 are firm with the assurance of safety and all the credit for this should go to the stiffer suspension that gently soaks up all the road bumps without making anything felt inside the cabin.
The interior of the 2019 Mazda CX-5 is neatly laid out spreading through the spacious cabin which will make you feel at home the moment you take those well-bolstered seats. The second row, with a boosted up leg room allows you to sit comfortably through the ride, even if it is as long as the entire day.
All this makes the 2019 lineup of Mazda CX-5 a desirable option to choose, if you need a crossover that knows how to tame down the roads.
