2017 Mazda CX-5 Gsx Ptr 2.0P/6At

Mt Maunganui
44,600 km
6-gear automatic

This CX5 never feels unwieldy or awkward, with a lovely, fluid way of taking corners. The view out is excellent and the angle of the horizon stays remarkably flat owing to very little body roll. The 2.0L four cylinder petrol engine of this CX5 produces 114KW of power and a nice round 200NM of torque. It's instantly recognizable as a Mazda with slim headlights, big five-point grille and shapely waistline. This CX-5 is 4.54 metres long, 1.84 metres wide and 1.71 metres tall and has a turning circle of 11.2 metres. Out of its formidable competition, the CX-5 is still the best of the mid-size SUV crowd from behind the wheel. Mazda has somehow found an excellent balance between ride and handling.
