Thus, it’s safe to say that automotive journalists firmly believe that Orland Park and Tinley Park drivers who upgrade to a new Mazda CX-5 are making the right choice. Check out what else the automotive experts have to say about the Mazda CX-5 in Illinois:

  • U.S. News: “The CX-5 feels like a luxury vehicle with a cabin featuring high-end materials everywhere you look and touch. The top trim comes with amenities that few affordable crossovers offer, including Nappa leather upholstery and real wood trim pieces.”
  • Car and Driver: “You don’t need to drive the CX-5 hard to enjoy it or to appreciate its excellence. Sure, its precise steering and composed cornering make for one helluva Sunday cruise. But it also soaks up rough roads without commotion and has the ride quality of crossovers that cost twice as much. This harmonious interplay of dynamics is unrivaled by its competitors. Pavement imperfections are isolated, road noise is minimal, and the damping is neither stiff nor floaty. At the same time, the Mazda comes alive on curvy roads. The electrically assisted steering provides satisfying responses.”
  • Edmunds:“The elevated ride height and superior passenger and cargo room of small SUVs make them far more sensible than the typical small sedan. The downside is that sensible isn’t normally sexy, but that’s where the 2021 Mazda CX-5 comes in. This SUV boasts sleek styling and impressive handling abilities to match. It also has a top-notch interior and a strong optional turbocharged engine that wouldn’t seem out of place in a BMW. These traits have helped the CX-5 earn a place near the top of our rankings of the best small SUVs.”
