What We Liked
Overall, both the looks and the performance of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 were subtle in their expressions, the steering was responsive and because of its taut suspension, the body balance were sustained even during driving through uneven surfaces. The cabin looks sober and neat with the well-bolstered seats, while the noise isolation technology hushed up all the outside noises with ease.
The base model of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 gets adequate adrenaline rush from an inline-4 engine that is capable of throwing 187 horsepower. The higher trims use a turbo-4 version as standard on delivering more power grunt. A 6-speed automatic transmission is paired with the engines to deliver the power majorly to the front wheels though Mazda allows your CX-5 models to be configured with all four wheels at a minimal cost added to the base price. fires off quick shifts most of the time. but irrespective of the powertrain options all the 2020 Mazda CX-5 models can equally deliver crisp handling prowess and a smooth ride experience.
The 2020 Mazda CX-5 looks sophisticated from every angle you see it. The lines are clean and the overall disposition sides more towards a smart cleanliness rather than trying to make it look jazzy. The design has an immediate attractiveness that will look good in whichever color you paint it with.
The long-hood in pair with a rear-wheel-drive appearance makes it look more like German crossovers, though in reality, most of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is poweredwith front wheel drives. The front fascia stretchesflat fulfilling the European standard of pedestrian crash testsand who can ignore the fine detailing that run around the broad front grille. To give it a compete look, the narrow taillights take a sweeping turn to the fenders. Mazda swapped the standard 17-inch alloy wheels with the bigger 19-inchers especially on the higher-trim versions.
The inside picture mirrors the exterior look following the same refined taste. The dash lies low to enhance the outward vision, while the chick looking infotainment screen is placed pops up on the dash with a well-integrated display. The color schemes in every 2020 Mazda CX-5 is the most intriguing that wraps the interior skin in a warm brown color, but one can also go with even more neutral tan in the lower and middle range trims, while the range topping Signature models paint the interior in soft mocha-hue leather hides.
