TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2014 Mazda CX-5

2014 Mazda CX-5 Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearComment
2013 There's plenty of legroom in the rear seat, but the same can be said of most compact crossovers. Based on the official specs the Mazda has 4.4 inches more total legroom than a VW Tiguan, but to me the Tiguan's rear seat seemed slightly roomier and more comfortable owing to a higher position. The rear seat reclines in the VW and some other compact crossovers, but not in the Mazda. The Escape's rear seat is considerably less spacious than the others. Adults will fit, but with less knee room to spare. see full Mazda CX-5 review
2014 Mazda CX-5 Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
2013 There's no clear winner in rear seat room and comfort, either. The Mazda's rear seat is mounted a little lower than the Toyota's, and when sitting in it my knees are considerably closer (if still not close) to the front seat backs. Also, the Toyota's rear seat reclines, while the Mazda's does not. Neither car has air vents in the rear passenger compartment, but the RAV4 has a large vent high on the instrument panel apparently intended to push cool air into the rear seat via the ceiling. To counter these RAV4 advantages, the CX-5 offers about five inches more rear hip room. So three passengers will fit more comfortably. see full Mazda CX-5 review

Soon after I bought the Mazda, I did an 8 hour trip in it. I found the seat comfort to be most satisfactory. I had no trouble finding a comfortable driving position using the power seat, and, the lumbar support. see full Mazda CX-5 review

While recently shopping for a new car for the first time in over 10 years, I found that driver's seats are now made with high sides. For me, a 5'1" female driver, this makes it a bit awkward getting in and out. Combined with the higher ground clearance of a compact SUV, it's not the ideal setup. The Mazda CX-5 is not as bad as others, but it's still an issue. see full Mazda CX-5 review

Could use some more support on the front of the seats, the back seems to fully support me. see full Mazda CX-5 review

The rear seat is roomy enough for an average or above average adult, but the seats themselves could be better-- perhaps more sculpted and padded. Not nearly as comfortable as the front seats after an hour or two. I'm sure, however, that this is a common complaint on other smaller SUVs too, having tried them out at dealers, so it's not unique to Mazda. Again, a modest complaint since I'm in the driver's seat most of the time! (which is VERY comfortable, I might add, even for long drives!) see full Mazda CX-5 review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2014 Mazda CX-5

2014 Mazda CX-5 Powertrain: Cons
YearComment
My evaluation of the CX-5's handling was likely colored by the performance (or lack thereof) of its powertrain. Mazda's new six-speed automatic does its job well, but simply can't compensate for the 155-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine's grunt deficit. Acceleration is merely adequate. Ford, Kia, and Volkswagen offer turbocharged 2.0-liter fours in their compact crossovers, while GM and Toyota offer V6s. Honda, like Mazda, offers only a naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine, but it's a 2.4-liter with 185 horsepower. Mazda needs to at least offer buyers the option of trading off some of that stellar fuel economy for more power. On top of its low output, the Mazda's direct-injected engine doesn't feel responsive and sounds a bit clattery, especially when cold. see full Mazda CX-5 review

The powertrain in the CX-5 offers very crisp performance, and, excellent fuel economy as well. I've put 1000 miles on the car so far and its perfomance reminds me of the 2.5 liter Jaguar X-Type I used to own. The Mazda engine has very good mid-range torque, and, the 6 speed automatic works well with it. This vehicle doesn't have to downshift to climb hills on the interstate near as much as the Honda CRV it replaced did. see full Mazda CX-5 review

WHile it obviously doesn;t compare with the VW CC Turbo 4 that I had been driving, performance is also at the top of the group I noted. There is a click spot on the gas pedal, however, that keep performance down a bit unless you mash the gas pedal. One of the ways that they can get the gas mileage up. see full Mazda CX-5 review

I purchased this CX5 new in Jan 2013, I now have over 5,000 miles and have no problems. I just love the way this car drives. It replaced a volvo Cross country with 205,000 miles. Plenty of power with the 2.0 engine and 6 speed auto. currently getting 28 MPG in combined city/highway. Also, one thing a lot of car reviewers do not talk about is the maintenance issues down the road. There is no timing belt to replace on the Mazda Skyactive engines. I plan on keeping this car for a number of years and well over 100,000 miles so that is one major maintenance item I do not have to worry about. see full Mazda CX-5 review
