2013 Mazda CX-5

New For 2013

The Mazda CX-5 is an all-new model for 2013 that launched in spring 2012.


It may be an efficiency-minded crossover, but the Mazda CX-5 still demonstrates the dedication to driving enjoyment that pervades the entire Mazda lineup. The new model replaces the Ford Escape–based Tribute and the fuel-guzzling CX-7 as the company’s only five-seat crossover. Interior room is plentiful, and the elevated driving position provides excellent visibility. The swoopy exterior styling is backed up by great chassis dynamics that make the CX-5 genuinely fun to drive. The steering is accurate, the controls are all in the right places, and a relatively firm suspension helps the driver feel in control. The Skyactiv four-cylinder engine provides class-leading fuel economy, but the focus on efficiency and the modest power output of 155 hp from the only engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, mean the CX-5’s acceleration is merely adequate. A six-speed manual is offered on the base model, so most CX-5s will be equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission that prioritizes saving fuel over going quickly. There’s a long list of options for the Mazda crossover, including safety gear like blind-spot monitoring and a backup camera, push-button start, touch-screen navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity. The Mazda CX-5 is not only better than the Tribute and the CX-7 it replaces but has also become one of our favorite entries in the crossover segment.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS with brake assist; traction and stability control; hill-start assist; and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard. A blind-spot monitoring system is optional.

Poor Mazda. The Japanese carmaker tried for more than two decades to sell Americans a small utility vehicle, but no one cared. Remember the Navajo, a rebadged Ford Explorer two-door that debuted for 1991? Neither do we. Mazda followed up with the Tribute, another rebadged Ford. Like the Escape it shared almost every part with, the Tribute was a fine vehicle in its day, but Ford's marketing machine made sure its version always far outsold Mazda's. Then came the CX-7. Sure, it was sleek, but it couldn't decide if it was a compact crossover or a mid-size crossover. Consumers were clear on one thing, though: they didn't want it. Actually, they didn't even know it existed. So Mazda watched enviously as the small-crossover segment grew, dominated by the Escape and the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. Then, for 2013, Mazda brought out the CX-5, and the skies cleared.
