All-new just last year, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is Mazda’s best-selling model. It’s also one of our favorites in the extremely competitive and fast-growing compact SUV class. Stylish, fuel efficient and built with exacting fit and finish, the CX-5 features a high-quality interior, room for five and many family-friendly features. It’s also one of the most fun-to-drive SUVs available for less than $30,000. Mazda is best known for its MX-5 Miata sports car, and the 2018 CX-5 shares the Miata’s ability to make driving more than just getting in and getting there.
The CX-5 is the Jan Brady in Mazda’s SUV line up: larger than the CX-3 and smaller than the seven-passenger CX-9. It competes with a long list of popular rivals, including the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape and the Nissan Rogue.
