      One of the best reviews Iv so far of the 2019 CX-5 (all trims) thanks guys. As a Audi owner I’m convinced Mazda is defiantly here to change the game towards its line and truly it’s going the right route! 👌🏼

      Well this decision would ultimately come down to space vs. luxury features. While the Sport CX-9 is well equipped, it will be missing a lot of features versus the fully-loaded CX-5. Also worth considering is that they both have the same turbo engine but the '9 is much heavier and therefore slower. Hopefully this helps!

      I had the 2014 GT with the 2.5 NA and it was more than adequate. I think you can get it in the touring trim level.

      Should've done suspension and body enhancements for turbo. You are paying nearly $40k and get the car that looks exactly as base model

      Could you provide a source please? I never heard of any such on Mazda owner forums. Besides, if you search for Toyota engine problems, there are several pages of complaints and news on engine recalls. That doesn't make Toyota unreliable. In fact Toyota is still ranked #1 by consumer reports.

      Lohan S yes because toyota wants to focus on their most important cars. The yaris is not that important that is why they let mazda do it. And mazda have a lot of issues with their automatic transmissions and skyactive engines

      Is that why Toyota is having Mazda build most of their Yaris models? 😏

      Yes, Toyota does have better resale value. But there's no evidence whatsoever regarding lower build quality or reliability issue.

      Personally, I would take a CX-5 than the boring Rav4 though the 2019 Rav4 is pretty interesting.

      The Signature trims of the 6, CX5 and CX9 are all punching above their class and price. The interiors are really surprising when you first sit in it, felt as nice as the lower tiers of the luxury competition that are thousands more.

      Ok, it's official, I think I'm starting to live for these reviews now, lol! Anyways, I came so close to buying this SUV, even got as close as signing the papers and all but it just wasn't the right time. I'm still attracted to the dimensions of this vehicle, and I'm happy to see they put in a turbo. However, I would like to see a little more bolstering in the front seats.

      Mazda CX5 is a much better buy than the competition when you are looking for driving dynamic, premium interior, best NVH and built quality. But if you are looking for roominess go for competition.

      How do these turbo charged engines hold up beyond 100k miles?

      about 10 days ago

      Lohan S In reply to DeathsInverse

      I am no expert by any means but my feeling is that Mazda uses Turbo safely. That's a 2.5 L engine putting out 227 HP versus others using 1.5 L to deliver 190 HP or 2.0 L to push at 260 HP. But again, this is just an assumption. Only time will tell.

      Interesting that you say the CX-5 at ~$40k this feels like a luxury car. Luxury SUV's start in the low-mid 30's... so you'd expect that in a $40k car, no? At this price, wouldn't it be competing with the Lexus NX? I recently drove one, as I'm looking for a car for my mom and it felt pretty awesome.

      Great review by the way, I'm so glad you guys mention what you get in each trim level - I hate that most reviewers just get the top trim and tell you how awesome it is - even if it's not what most people will be buying.

      BROis Loud compared to what? According to a major publication (Car&Driver or Road&Track, I am not sure), it’s quieter than a Mercedes GLC.

      +Volatile Memory Good points. You're right, there's a premium, but not as much as MSRP would suggest. There's more markup built into the Lexus and the Mazda sells close to MSRP according to TrueCar

      There are of course things that work in Lexus' favor as well, such as better warranty, market leading reliability, owning a "luxury brand" instead of something that looks like every other $24k CX-5 on the road. Besides, the NX 300 has features the CX-5 doesn't have, but we'd be nit-picking what's important to the individual.

      Just out of curiosity, have you driven both cars? I haven't driven the CX-5 yet, but my co-worker told me it was very loud when he drove it.

      AWD Lexus NX starts at $37,800 MSRP without as much safety features and convenience features such as heated seats, ventilated seats, heated steering wheel, folding mirrors, front/rear sensors, 360 surround camera, etc... Add those packages into the NX and the prices ballon to $45K or more. The CX5 Signature has so much for $38K + tax or about $42K with tax in my state.

      Thanks! That is true about the luxury SUV's. What I was mostly thinking about was the new RAV4 which can hit $40k when fully equipped, without any kind of upgraded engine. There is a lot of overlap nowadays
