The car shoppers who are planning to go for a crossover might have a tough time selecting the most suitable model for themselves, as the number is too many with very minute differences among each. So, when we were requested by a family friend to suggest some most desirable midsized crossover that got released this year, the name 2020 Mazda CX-5 occurred to our minds first. We hold this opinion since we have seen and explored this crossover at the showroom of Phoenix Mazda dealer. Since then we have found this Mazda crossover to be one of the most comfortable and desirable moving space for families that also offer nimble handling moments to the driver, as well as good amount of power to the wheels.
Driving the 2020 Mazda CX-5 for the first time as a test, gave us one of the most memorable events that also made us spot the sportiest small crossover SUV that is currently available in the market. We were deeply impressed by its subtle responses to the driving inputs and its sophisticated way of occasionally reminding the driver regarding the next right moves. Did we mention about its highly effective driving dynamics that includes an effortless steering movement, the magic of its taut suspension that never let us know when the roads threw tough challenges to the car.
Adequate Power Supply
None of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is scarcely powered. Even the Base models of the 2020 edition of CX-5 are given the supply of 187 horsepower that is derived from a 2.5 liter inline-4 engine, while Mazda stores a more powerful turbo-4 version of the same engine that can push the horsepower count to 227 for the users for whom driving is an act of passion. It comes standard for the higher-trim versions to deliver more amount of grunt and revving performance.
However, irrespective of the engine choice, Mazda sets up only a 6-speed automatic transmission as standard to deliver the engine power either to the front wheels or to all four of them. Crisp handling responses is one of the major reasons why the driving enthusiasts desire to sit behind a 2020 Mazda CX-5. It’s the same time, when the driver enjoys his drive moves, the passengers get to experience a great ride all along the journey. For this we must acknowledge the contribution of the active noise cancellation technology that sustains the quietness in the cabin and this part is specially improved for the 2020 model as a special gift from the automaker.
After pairing with the 6-speed automatic gearbox, the base models of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 could score a reasonable rating from the EPA for its fuel efficiency. If you drive it at both city and highway speeds, then this combined trip will fetch you 26 mpg which is at par with its own class.
A Safer Crossover to Drive
The Mazda dealership Phoenix informed that since Mazda has made standard automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control as standard equipment for 2020, it has earned the badge of being the safest crossover in the market.
