Mazda’s little SUV is a fitting Tribute to badge-engineering’s ills
Our test vehicle came with a very basic single-zone climate system. It doesn’t get much simpler than this: fan speed knob, large on-off button, temperature control knob, plus nine buttons to control air conditioning, airflow and defog functions. All the buttons are well-marked and easy to use. The knobs are large enough to use with gloves, but don’t have grippy surfaces.
