I purchased the 2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD model.Drove it from Chicago to Baltimore in 12 hours.Speed 75-80; Averaged 50 MP, and 25.2 MPG per the onboard computer.That’s very good mileage for that speed. Upon arrival no shoulder or back aches. Seats are firm and great. It had enough power to accelerate mid hill in PA and western Md to pass the slower SUVs. I was smiling.Very comfortable ride.The vehicle also sits high with better than average ground clearance.The Tom Tom worked just fine.Much to my surprise it even re-routed me around a traffic accident through a housing development maze. The sound system is very good.  The AWD worked very well in the recent Chicago snow. What is my one gripe?If you are going to give me heated seats, then give me a heated steering wheel to match.What’s the nice to have?The backup camera works great, but a sensor that beeps as you close in on obstacles would have been a nice touch.This is a keeper.

Dump the 2.0L and the money being wasted to produce that motor should be used to drop the price of the 2.5L.

Forget AWD. All you need are FWD and good tires. AWD is only needed for maybe 14 days out of the year. The other 351 you're just using more gas and burning more rubber than is necessary. This is definitely the best styled and best overall value in the cute-ute class. Also, how was the diesel?

"The 2.0-liter offers a very nice sweet spot of high mileage and lots of space along with a savings of a couple thousand dollars."You are kidding, right? The 2.5 is only a couple hundred more than the 2.0. The other costs have to do with trim and feature differences. Compare the same trim levels from 2013 with the 2.0 to the same 2014 versions with the 2.5. It's nowhere near what you've stated.

@TD-40 AWD would be good for towing a boat out of water too, but this isn't really meant for serious towing anyhow.
