July 6th, 2023 by

2022 Mazda CX-5 Crossover SUV

The Mazda CX-5 is a popular crossover that can easily be spotted on any road in Sheboygan and Oshkosh. And for 2023, the Mazda CX-5 is taking the lead as one of the top crossover SUVs on the market. The 2023 Mazda CX-5 reviews have been nothing but overwhelmingly positive. Critics love the Mazda CX-5 most notably for its exceptionally precise steering and handling, its competitive interior that even outperforms luxury automakers within its class like Mercedes-Benz and Audi, and its all around great value for its affordable price.

Car and Driver MAZDA CX-5 Review: Score 9/10

The MAZDA CX-5 has received high praise from Car and Driver and has been deemed as the “Editor’s choice of SUV.” The esteemed crossover received an excellent 9/10 score from authors Drew Dorian and Eric Stafford for having an “artful exterior design, refined handling, richer interior than similarly priced SUVs.” They even go as far to describe in their Mazda CX-5 review as being one of the publication’s “favorite small SUVs,” more specifically the higher trim models that feature the available 256-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Critics Dorian and Stafford also go on to describe that the precise handling, standard all-wheel drive and steering of the Mazda CX-5 possesses the “ride quality of crossovers that cost twice as much,” and that its “composed cornering make for one helluva Sunday cruise.” You would think that the publication would stop the compliments there, but they even go on to state the following about the 2023 Mazda CX-5: 

“Wake up inside the top-tier CX-5 models and you might think you’ve been abducted by kidnappers driving an Audi or a Mercedes.”

US News MAZDA CX-5 Review: Score 8.7/10

Just like Car and Driver, U.S. News has many positive things to say in their 2023 Mazda CX-5 review and that the crossover “offers a blend of comfort, athleticism and interior refinement that helps elevate this SUV from practical people-mover to near-luxe transportation.” The 2023 Mazda CX-5 places #1 across the board in several categories, including #1 Compact SUV, Crossover SUV, and SUV with 2 rows. In fact, the Mazda CX-5 has been crowned as the winner for the 2023 Best Compact SUV for the money.
