This engine gets a six-speed automatic and can be mated to either front- or all-wheel drive. Fuel economy with the 2.0-liter is rated at 29 miles per gallon overall. The 2.5 is said to also return 29 overall with front-drive and 26 combined—with all-wheel drive.

Why buy the 2016 Mazda CX-5?

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety says the Mazda CX-5 earned its highest rating in all of its crash tests. NHTSA says the CX-5 is a four-star car overall, with frontal crashes rating only four of five stars. Either way, the CX-5 is rated above average. This, combined with the advanced safety features enumerated above, place the CX-5 ahead of many of its competitors in terms of safety. Given we’ve already raved about how much fun to drive the CX-5 is, the Mazda’s standard features only serve to adorn an already well-endowed model even more. These include an electronic parking brake, full power accessories, air conditioning and cruise control. The optional Mazda Connect package integrates smartphone applications, while other optional features include keyless entry and ignition, blind spot monitoring, and a Bose audio system.
