2017 Mazda CX-5 - CardinaleWay Mazda a Corona Mazda Dealer

There’s no reason a crossover needs to be a boring box that’s about as much fun to drive as an ice cream truck. You won’t have that problem with the 2017 Mazda CX-5, a compact crossover SUV with a sports car in its DNA. The Corona Mazda Dealer told us customers report that the CX-5 is more fun to drive than other vehicles in its class.

The CX-5 outshines the competition in the looks department without resorting to over-the-top styling. The CX-5 looks a bit like a smaller version of the CX-9, which is a welcome transformation. The nose is sharper and the vehicle now has a more aggressive look.

The combination of sharp steering and nimble, responsive handling makes quick lane changes a breeze and allows the CX-5 to corner like a champ — no squealing tires here. The CX-5 now has Mazda’s new G-Vectoring Control, which improves handling by electronically transferring weight to the vehicle’s front tires. The CX-5 delivers a smooth ride, even when driving over rough surfaces and bumpy roads. It’s no surprise that Edmunds calls the 2017 Mazda CX-5 the best-handling small crossover.

It's Not Just Corona But the Entire Inland Empire Demands Interior Comfort - The CX-5 Delivers

Inside, you’ll find an upscale cabin that delivers quiet comfort. Upgraded materials are used throughout the interior, giving the CX-5 an aura of luxury.

The Mazda CX-5 gets a complete redesign for 2017, with improved styling inside and out, a quieter and smoother ride, new features and great fuel economy.

Automotive reviewers are CX-5 believers, with Autoweek writing: "The crossover game is ridiculously competitive. Mazda created one of the most rewarding compact models with the original CX-5. But this new one is so much smoother, quieter and thoughtfully developed, it should really help the brand cut through the clutter. The upcoming diesel and its deep torque reserves should make this CX-5 an even more rewarding drive."

There are four models available: Sport, Touring, Grand Select and Grand Touring. Powering the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 187 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a standard six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift and Sport modes. All models get standard front-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive is available.
