Mazda Vehicle Spotlight: An Inside Look at the 2018 CX-5

It’s always a good thing when a vehicle seems more expensive than it actually is.

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 falls into that category.

It’s the best looking and best driving crossover currently on the market.

Here’s what’s up with the CX-5.

What’s new?
One of the coolest new features on this Mazda is the cylinder deactivation system.

This technology shuts down two of the four cylinders when the car is “cruising,” which increases the fuel efficiency.

To add to the high-class, expensive feel, the 2018 model now comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

Most importantly, more active safety options come standard, even on the base model.

The highlights
  • Handling is superior, making the new CX-5 fun to drive
  • Looks more expensive than it is
  • Styling is gorgeous, inside and out
  • All-wheel drive is available, though it will cost $1300 extra
