FIVE LIVE (new2) 14/07/2017

Mazda's second generation CX-5 will be at its most popular in SKYACTIV-D 2.2-litre 150PS diesel form. Jonathan Crouch finds out why.

Ten Second Review

One of the most popular and rapidly expanding market sectors is that for Qashqai-sized Crossovers and Mazda's CX-5 has gained a reputation as one of the most engaging of these. With this second generation model, the Japanese firm aims to offer more refinement, lower running costs and an even better drive than the original. Does it hit the mark? Let's check out the volume SKYACTIV-D 2.2-litre 150PS diesel version and find out.

Background

Mazda scored a big hit with the first generation CX-5, so the second generation version of this Qashqai rival is hugely important for them and will sell most readily in the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel 150PS guise we're going to look at here. The engine and optional AWD system are much the same as before. However, look at the details and you see plenty of areas where ths car has been refined, honed and improved. It sticks to Mazda's 'Jinbai-Ittai' idea of car and driver as one harmonious unit, but it also has a new mantra of 'Refined Toughness'. That comes with a promise of a stronger body, quieter engines and better handling. These are important factors in a class packed with talented contenders. Does this Mk2 CX-5 have what it takes to get the upper hand?

Driving Experience

Mazda often goes its own way with its cars, but Crossover buyers' demands mean that modern car makers can't stray too far from the mainstream. So, this second generation CX-5 concentrates on honing refinement, handling and comfort. Is it a success? Well, in some ways, yes. This MK2 model CX-5 handles with all of the agility and precision we've come to expect of cars from this Japanese brand and it deals with lumpy roads in a calm, efficient manner. There's also 'G-Vectoring Control' that adjusts the steering assistance depending on hard the car is being driven around a bend. We find it makes the tiller feel a little too light and remote, but the CX is certainly easy to pilot around town or along the motorway. There are two versions of the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel engine available, offering either 150 or 184PS. Most choose the 150PS model we're looking at here but it can only be had in 2WD form. For AWD, you'll need the 184PS version of this engine. As with the systems employed by most of its rivals, the 184PS 4x4 version of this car has an AWD set-up in which the torque is automatically split according to the terrain you're on, so it can direct 100% of drive to the front wheels in normal conditions, with up to 50% then directed to the rear wheels if slip is detected.

Design and Build

Mazda is a company that revels in its engineering know-how and they're very proud of how this second generation CX-5 has turned out. For starters, the body shell is now fifteen percent stiffer thanks to improved materials and the way they're bonded together. There's also a completely new look for the cabin, so this is a very thorough update for one of this company's cornerstone models. Inside, the dash is all new and looks classier, topped off by a new eight inch 'floating' infotainment monitor. It has a touchscreen that lets you choose from its features. They include satellite navigation, 'Aha' app and 'Stitcher' that lets you access the internet for radio and social media. In the back, there's more than enough room for adults to stretch out in comfort. You can also recline the backs in two stages for greater comfort on long journeys. The only small shortcoming here is whoever sits in the middle pew has less space for their feet due to the transmission tunnel, but it's hardly a deal breaker and children won't notice this. As for the boot, well this Mazda offers 506-litres of capacity with the rear seats in place. That's a little less than some rivals, but more than enough for most needs.

Market and Model

Mazda has kept the CX-5 line-up very simple in the number of engines it offers and limited the line-up to two trim levels. On first glance that makes it seem as if this car is a little pricier to start with than its key competitors. However, when you compare similarly powerful and well equipped rivals, the Mazda comes out well. Prices for this SKYACTIV-D 150PS CX-5 diesel model start from around £29,000 if you change gear yourself - or there'll be a further £1,500 if you want the auto. There's a choice of 'SE-L' or plusher 'Sport' trim levels. Even the 'SE-L Nav' variant comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED main beams, daytime running lamps and front fog lights. There's also an 'Adaptive Front Lighting System' that automatically alters the illumination to give you the best vision but without dazzling oncoming vehicles. Heated power fold door mirrors are included, along with parking sensors at the front and back, electric windows all round and an electronic parking brake. Inside, you have an engine start-stop button on the dash, while dual-zone climate control maintains your preferred temperature. The seats are trimmed in black cloth and each of the two chairs in the forward cabin have height adjustment.

Cost of Ownership

There are so many cars in this crossover sector competing for your attention that they cannot afford to be expensive to run. Mazda approaches this in its usual pragmatic way that it sums up in the word 'SKYACTIV'. It applies this all-encompassing thinking to every facet of the CX-5's design and build to make it lighter and more efficient, so that a little bit here and there adds up to a lot overall. To see how this works, let's start by looking at the figures of the 150PS SKYACTIV-D engine being featured here. It manages up to 49.6mpg on the combined cycle and 151g/km of CO2 when ordered in front-driven guise coupled to a six-speed manual 'box. Swap that for the six cog automatic and the figures are 43.5mpg and 171g/km. As part of the SKYACTIV programme for the CX-5, every model comes with Mazda's 'i-stop' technology that switches off the engine when the car is stopped in traffic. Another part of this package of efficiencies is the 'i-ACTIV All-Wheel Drive' that uses 27 sensors dotted around the car. It knows which corner to send the power to for the best grip and stability, so it doesn't waste energy spinning the tyres in slippery conditions and also helps to preserve forward motion and stability.

Summary

The second generation CX-5 addresses almost everything we might have found fault with in the previous model. Mazda has given the styling a sharp look that sets it apart and the cabin is now one of the classiest places to sit in this sector. They've also managed to make the CX-5 even more fun and engaging to drive. It has a strong turbodiesel engine, smooth gearboxes and the sort of handling almost all of its rivals can only dream about. All of that is capped by the CX-5's generous equipment levels, spacious interior and a level of fit and finish that marks it out as one of the best options in the Qashqai class, especially in this volume 150PS diesel guise. Yes, Mazda does things its own way, but the result is a crossover with huge appeal to a great many buyers.

FIVE STAR (new2) 28/04/2017

Mazda's CX-5 is a mid-sized SUV with a loyal following. Jonathan Crouch checks out the improved version of this MK2 model to find out why.

Ten Second Review

The second generation version of Mazda's CX-5 mid-sized SUV has been lightly improved. As before, it's a good compromise between a Nissan Qashai-style family Crossover and a Toyota RAV4-style SUV, offering good driving dynamics, efficient running costs and decent practicality. This may not be the first car you consider in this sector, but try one and you might just think it to be the best.

Background

The CX-5 has proved to be a crucial car for Mazda. Launched in 2012 relatively early on in the current craze for mid-sized SUV and Crossover models, it's since sold prodigiously. To the point where this model line now accounts for a quarter of all the Japanese brand's global sales. Over 1.5 million CX-5s have been sold worldwide, with 32,000 examples having found UK owners. Will those people continue to like this sharper-looking second generation version, now usefully revised? It'll be interesting to see. There are extra drive modes, improved refinement, slight changes to the styling and revisions to the range structure. All of which this car will need to stay competitive in the face of crowded competition for sales of cars of this kind. Let's judge this Mazda on its merits.

Driving Experience

Let's cover what's different with the lightly revised CX-5 under consideration here. It introduces Mazda Intelligent Drive select (Mi-Drive), which enables the driver to select the most appropriate drive mode with one touch of a switch. Some model grades equipped with i-Activ AWD further benefit from an Off-Road Mode, which makes driving feel more natural on un-made and slippery surfaces. Mazda's next generation of Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture has now been applied to this mid-sized SUV, further evolving the bodyshell, suspension and seats to enhance ride comfort and reduce fatigue. Mazda claims that road noise has also been greatly reduced, particularly when driving on rough surfaces such as gravel. The base 2.0-litre 165PS SKYACTIV-G petrol version (offered with manual or auto transmission) still can't be had with AWD, but this engine has recently gained what Mazda calls 'steering vibration counter-measures' and these days features a cylinder deactivation system. You can have a petrol-powered CX-5 that does have AWD though - a 2.5-litre 194PS SKYACTIV-G powerplant at the top of the range, which only comes in 4x4 form. Most CX-5 folk though, still defiantly choose the brand's 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel unit, now updated for RDE2 compliance. As before, this diesel engine is offered with either 150 or 184PS forms, can be specified with auto transmission and (in 184PS form) with AWD too. Like many new-era Mazda models, this one's a product of the company's 'Jinba-Ittai' 'car-and-driver-as-one' philosophy which aims to deliver more focused levels of levels of driver engagement and comfort. Further helping in this regard is a 'GVC' 'G-Vectoring Control' torque vectoring system that transfers traction to the wheel most needing it when you're going at speed through tight corners. And off road prowess? Well, as with the systems employed by most of its rivals, this car has a set-up in which the torque is automatically split according to the terrain you're on, so it can direct 100% of drive to the front wheels in normal conditions, with up to 50% then directed to the rear wheels if slip is detected.

Design and Build

Nothing much has changed with the look of this updated version of the second generation CX-5: there's a restyled more three-dimensional grille and signature wing design, plus both front and rear lamp clusters have also been revised. That's about it. But then, nothing much needed to change here: this CX-5 still looks pretty fresh. This MK2 model takes its cues from the stunning 'RX Vision' concept car the brand first displayed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show and offers a sharp and mature design that British buyers seem to like. There's a sleek profile and a reatively low roofline that underscore this SUV's solid stance and elegant proportions. Under the skin, the body structure has been created under the concept of what Mazda calls 'Refined Toughness'. Inside, there aren't really any changes apart from the addiution of a wireless Qi phone charging tray. The cabin had already been updated not long ago with a larger, faster and clearer 10.25-inch centre display screen, more intuitive Mazda Connect Commander operation and an expanded range of Connected Services operable by the latest MyMazda App. If you haven't looked at this MK2 CX-5 since launch, you may also notice that it now includes LED interior lighting, a redesigned key and the availability of black half-leatherette seats on plusher variants. In terms of overall quality, the cabin finish is now almost up there with a rival Volkswagen Tiguan - and it's certainly an improvement over what you'd get in competitors like Ford's Kuga and Kia's Sportage. In the back, there's plenty of legroom, despite the provision of a decently-sized 506-litre boot, extendable to 1,620-litres on retraction of the rear bench.

Market and Model

List pricing sees CX-5 ownership pitched much as before, with prices ranging in the £28,000 to £39,000 bracket. There are five trim levels - 'SE-L', Newground', 'Sport', 'Sport Black' and 'GT Sport' and four engines, 2.0-litre 165PS and 2.5-litre 194PS petrol units and 150 and 184PS versions of the familiar 2.2-litre diesel. AWD is mandatory on the 2.5-litre petrol model - and an option at just under £2,000 more on the top 184PS version of the 2.2-litre diesel. The 'Newground' version features silver underguard-style treatment to the front and rear bumpers and door garnishes, black door mirrors, lime green accents to the front grille and 17" silver or 19" black machine-cut alloy wheels. The interior combines suede upholstery with lime green stitching and air-conditioning louvres. 'Sport Black' trim boasts a sporting, gloss black finish to the front grille, signature wing, lower bumper sections, wheel arches, door garnishes and door mirrors, giving the body a taut, athletic look. 19" alloy wheels are finished in black metallic paint, and the front grille incorporates red accents. Red stitching trims the black leather seats, steering wheel, gear shift lever and door panels. Top 'GT Sport'-spec offers bright silver 19" alloy wheels, Nappa leather upholstery and woodgrain cabin trim. Across the range, the CX-5 gets even more active safety equipment as standard thanks to the addition of 'Cruising & Traffic Support', which helps reduce driver fatigue by assisting with accelerator, brake pedal and steering operations when stuck in traffic jams. All models get Mazda's 'Advanced Smart City Brake Support' system, which incorporates night-time pedestrian detection. This Advanced SCBS set-up uses a forward-sensing camera to detect vehicles and pedestrians ahead and help avoid collisions or mitigate damage in the event one does occur. There's also Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic alert, High Beam Control and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning standard across the range. In addition, the optional safety pack on 'Sport' models features a 360-degree view camera and Adaptive LED Headlamps.

Cost of Ownership

The CX-5's unexpectedly imperious progress continues when it comes to cost of ownership and this is where the SKYACTIV technology really pays off. Let's get to the WLTP figures. The 2.2-litre 150PS diesel variant many will choose returns up to 50.4mpg on the combined cycle in manual form (or 46.3mpg as an auto) and up to 147g/km (160g/km). For the 2.2 184PS 2WD diesel, the figures are the same. For the 2.2 184PS AWD diesel, it's 44.8mpg for the manual (42.8mpg auto) and 165g/km (173g/km). The 2.0-litre petrol model now manages up to 42.2mpg and 152g/km (34% BiK tax group) - or up 38.7mpg and up to 164g/km in auto form (36%). The 2.5-litre 194PS SKYATIV-G petrol delivers up to 35.3mpg and up to 182g/km of CO2 (37% BiK tax group). Clever use of low compression ratios for the SKYACTIV-G petrol and SKYACTIV-D diesel engines means that ignition takes longer, ensuring a better mixture of air and fuel. This approach also enables the engines to run with less mechanical stress, which allows the use of lighter weight materials, in turn meaning that the finished vehicle will need less energy to move through the air. And no energy at all of course when it comes to a temporary stop, say at the lights or in traffic. At that point in this Mazda's case, an 'i-stop' engine stop/start system (the fastest-reacting set-up of its kind on the market) will cut in, reducing fuel consumption by up to 10% all on its own. As for peace of mind, well given the reliability of Mazda products, you'd have thought the company might have wanted to improve upon its usual three year/60,000 mile package and take on the Korean brands. Not so. That familiar standard warranty remains in place for this car.

Summary

The CX-5 isn't one of those cars that jumps out at you on first acquaintance. But as with many Mazdas, its modesty hides a product packed with innovation. The result is excellent packaging, strong economy and emissions and driving dynamics that are amongst the best in this sector. Add in a high specification and competitive pricing and you've a compelling proposition, especially with the minor refinements made to this updated model. In summary, what we've got here is yet another example of Mazda going its own way, doing things differently. Which means? Well something quite simple really. If you're looking for a car of this kind, make sure you also try this one.

CX IN THE CITY (family) 01/10/2021

Mazda's CX-5 isn't your typical compact SUV. June Neary puts the second generation version through its paces.

Will It Suit Me?

Big bumpers, bulging wheelarches and ferocious looking grilles were a big part of what fired 4x4 vehicles to mainstream popularity. They were a bolder choice than a conventional car with extra attitude and a youthful image that had a powerful appeal for a lot of people, even if off-road driving wasn't on their agenda. Today, SUVs have become a lot more circumspect in the way they look and the secomd generation version of Mazda's CX-5 is a perfect example. In these more environmentally enlightened times, maintaining a lower profile is a more attractive option and 'car-like' is a quality that's increasingly highly prised. Few SUVs do car-like more effectively than this CX-5.

Practicalities

The CX-5 will net some sales purely on the basis of the way it looks. This MK2 model takes its cues from the 'RX Vision' concept car the brand displayed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show and swaps the previous soft and curvy look for an altogether sharper and more mature design. This is exactly what many prospective buyers will want. The smarter exterior looks see this car get a sleeker profile and a lower roofline to underscore its solid stance and elegant proportions. Under the skin, a fully-revised body structure that's been created under the concept of what Mazda calls 'Refined Toughness'. Take a seat at the wheel and you're treated to a master class in how it's possible to completely change the look and feel of this part of the cabin without altering any of its essential dimensions or hard points. Two things are primarily responsible for this and the first change is predictable given the fact that interior quality was one of the original CX-5 model's biggest flaws. This time round, it's a very different story, with an up-market feel that's clearly been inspired by the German brands that Mazda wants to emulate. When I took a seat in the rear, I realised that not all mid-sized SUVs are the same. Whereas in a rival Qashqai or an Ateca (or even a slightly bigger competitor like Ford's Kuga), a couple of adults might struggle a little for comfort on a longer trip, in the back of a CX-5, you feel like you're in an environment that hasn't solely been designed around the needs of children. You can stretch out a little, with proper space for your head, leg and shoulders on the more supportive rear bench. There's a decently-sized 506-litre boot too.

Behind the Wheel

A 2.0-litre petrol engine's offered, but it's the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel that buyers tend to want, offered with either 150 or 184PS. With either diesel, you get a choice of front wheel drive or AWD and the option of auto transmission if you want it. The volume 150PS 'SKYACTIV-D' unit manages 56.5mpg and 132g/km of CO2 in front-driven, manual form. As for the dynamic improvements made this time round, well the body's 15% more rigid and Mazda's clever 'G-Vectoring Control' system has been adopting to improve cornering traction. The CX-5 gives only the merest nod to the concept of off-road ability, preferring instead to concentrate its efforts on the tarmac ride and handling that owners will experience day to day. As I said, there's four-wheel-drive, Mazda's Active Torque-Split system, but the CX-5 is no mud-plugger. Its low ride height and lack of body protection see to that. What you do get is enhanced grip and ability in slippery conditions as the 4x4 system automatically distributes torque to the axle that can best use it. There's also fully-independent suspension to bring added finesse to the drive.

Value For Money

CX-5 customers have always received a lot of equipment for their money and nothing is set to change in that regard. Even base 'SE-L Nav' trim comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights that include LED daytime running lamps and fog lights, auto headlamps and wipers and heated power-folding mirrors, plus rear privacy glass, front and rear parking sensors and the brand's sophisticated 'GVC' 'G-Vectoring Control' system for extra traction through the turns. Inside, the primary feature is a standard 7-inch centre-dash 'MZD-Connect' colour touchscreen incorporating satellite navigation, integrated Bluetooth, a 6-speaker DAB audio system and app integration for internet radio, Facebook and Twitter, plus you get the usual USB and iPod ports. Other interior features include dual-zone climate control, leather for the gearknob and the multi-function steering wheel, an auto-dimming rear view mirror and a 40-20-40 split rear seat backrest for the reclinable rear seat.

Could I Live With One?

I have a lot of time for the CX-5 and that's coming from someone who can generally take or leave SUVs. Its focus on on-road driving suits me fine and it looks good too, which is always a help.

User comment:
Compared with the Range Rover Evoque and the Volvo XC60 or XC40 the Mazda CX5 is more comfortable, better specified as standard and hence better value for money. It is easy to exceed the specified fuel economy figures which to my mind are rather conservative. My only minor concern is that the vehicle is not offered with run flat tyres when there is no provision for a spare wheel because of the Bose sound system. An excellent vehicle.
