      Not everyone wants (or can afford) to spend 40K on an SUV. Most CX5 reviews I've seen are for the upper trim level turbo models. How about a good review and road test of a model with the normally aspirated 2.5 engine?

      Just bought a Signature at a little below dealer cost....the red one. I think they had too many on the lot and have to move them out.

      Going to get the 2019 CX-5 Signature in May.... any colour suggestions? I'm torn between the snowflake white pearl and machine grey... I would have considered black if it weren't for all the dings and scratches that would be made more visible :/

      I think you're right about black. I have a black car and have those problems. I'm also usually not a fan of gray, but in this case Mazda makes a very nice looking hue! My personal favorites are Deep Crystal Blue and Soul Red. Good luck choosing!

      This 2019 cx5 turbo is nice. Better then the crv touring 1.5 turbo. The engine is just way too small for a car that size.

      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
