Cars.com Reviews the 2014 Mazda CX-5

2014MazdaCX5

When the Mazda CX-5 entered the competitive crossover market last year, it might have rocketed straight to the top of the heap if the automaker could have fixed one thing: the engine. Cars.com reviewer Mike Hanley says that with the 2014 CX-5, Mazda has eliminated that weak spot. A 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine boosts power sufficiently to overcome the sluggishness of the old 2.0-liter without great sacrifice to gas mileage. Some may feel the "unapologetically" firm ride offers far more information about what they're driving over than they need, but otherwise the CX-5 has little to apologize for. Read Hanley's review below.

Amazing !!!
upsized to 2.5 liters and producing 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque—29 hp and 35 lb-ft more than the existing 2.0-liter

Probably great auto but I wasn't impressed just by sitting in it.
