TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2015 Mazda CX-5

2015 Mazda CX-5 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 In a bid to broaden the appeal of its cars, Mazda added a focus on fuel economy to its traditional emphasis on handling. The 2013 CX-5 earned surprising EPA fuel economy ratings of 26 mpg city, 35 highway--but with a manual transmission and front-wheel-drive. Add AWD and a six-speed automatic transmission, and the ratings fell to a less lofty but still competitive 25/31. This, though, was with the wheezy 155-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. Certainly adding a half-liter of displacement (and 29 horsepower) must impact mpg. It does, but not much: fuel economy drops by a single mile per gallon, yielding 24/30. For those who'd like to trade the extra power for one mpg, the 2.0 continues to power the base "Sport" trim. I don't foresee many takers. The larger engine feels much stronger. At least as important, it doesn't sound nearly as weak and buzzy. But you won't find powertrain performance among the reasons to buy a CX-5 because the improvement merely makes the CX-5 competitive in this area. The CR-V and RAV4, among others, are about equally quick. Even with slightly lower EPA ratings the CX-5 still bests the 22/29 RAV4, especially in city/suburban driving. But there's a new segment champ. The 2014 Subaru Forester manages 24/32. see full Mazda CX-5 review

2015 4dr SUV 184-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
My Mazda is the AWD model, and, I'm pleasantly surprised that it's bascially hitting its EPA numbesr so far. I've done 3 long trips, mostly interstate, running 70 - 75 Mph, and, average mileage is running 27.5 - 30 Mpg. see full Mazda CX-5 review

Fuel economy was the best in its class. see full Mazda CX-5 review

The number two reason I chose this vehicle was for the gas mileage, which has so far exceeded my expectations. According to the information screen, I've been averaging between 29 and 30 mpg. see full Mazda CX-5 review

This SUV gets as good mileage as my father's Ford Escape Hybrid! Overall, I love that I am actually getting better MPG than my previous car, which was a 2009 Mazda 6. see full Mazda CX-5 review

Hard to complain about averaging 27 mpg in an all wheel drive vehicle that is mostly surburban driven. see full Mazda CX-5 review
