Mazda CX-5 review – an involving and competent SUV - Design
As well as being one of the best-looking SUVs thanks to a sharp line and concept-car nose, it’s also one of the best to drive
SUVs are never the most exciting, exotic or alluring vehicles on the road. Yet Mazda’s latest CX-5, with its short overhangs, neat lines and tough proportions, is a handsome car. Its big grille opening, surrounded by sharp lines and shallow, mean lights give it an aggression that none of its rivals possess.
The only aspect of the CX-5 that doesn’t live up to its concept-car looks are its wheels, which look small and weedy – even the optional 19-inch items – by comparison to the butch bodywork.
