Mazda costs themselves $ playing trim level games.

I bought a used 2017 CX5 in Touring trim. I was looking for a 2016 Grand Touring but came across a good deal on the one I bought. There are quite a few differences between the trim levels though that surprised me. 1. Auto Headlights. In this day and age of electroluminescent gauges, auto headlights should be a standard safety feature. I see way too many drivers at night with just their DRL's on. The gauges are lit so they forget about turning on the lights. All trim levels have LED headlights and an auto off function so why not have auto on for all trims. Seems it would save in manufacturing and production costs. Besides, it should be a required safety feature. 2. While on the subject of lights, why would Mazda manufacture 2 different styles of headlamp assemblies? The headlamp is one piece, all trim levels have LED lighting, but only the upper two trim levels have Mazda's signature halo DRL's. Again, savings in manufacture and assembly by eliminating duplication of parts. 3. Side view mirrors. All trim levels have power mirrors with blind spot monitoring, so they all already have power to them. Why then are a heated function only available on the Grand Select and Grand Touring? I understand stand the differences in the higher trim levels having more of the techy equipment, stereo upgrades, wheel upgrades etc, but it seems they would be able to save themselves some money in the longrun by eliminating a lot of duplicity of some basic parts. 4. Exterior styling. While the redesign looks more like the CX9 which is a good thing, it's subtlety in character lines make it look like a whale from the side profile. This is a big sided vehicle and the new design accentuates that fact. 5. Interior design. It is a lot less busy than the previous model almost to the point of being boring. I guess they are going for more of an elegant look, but you can combine elegance and style. Case in point is the infotainment touch screen. The previous model was integrated into the dashboard. Now however, it protrudes from the dash like a pop-up screen looking very much like someone shoved it into the warm plastic and it stuck there. On a positive note the interior is very comfortable and quiet. 6. Engine. The 2.5 liter has the capability to deliver gas mileage uncommon for a vehicle this size. I bought the car with 4500 miles on it and an average mpg of 28.2. In the 1000 miles I've put on it I have upped it to 28.4 mpg. Quite a bit better than most vehicles I was looking at in the same class. While this might seem like a mostly negative review, it's not really. I like the car even though I think Mazda has a lot of room for improvement, not everyone will agree I'm sure.

Third Mazda we have purchased. Great cars! Reliable engines with no extra maintenance. The only problem we have had is with the paint on a black 2009 CX-9. Will buy again.

Just bought the CX5 a month ago and it is pretty much as I expected. Pros: Exterior styling, interior design and attention to detail, quiet ride, sportier handling, lots of tech. Cons: so, so fuel economy, smallish fuel tank, Small cargo area and generally lack of storage since all the storage areas are not very big. Short seat bottoms which limit thigh support for taller people, no CD player or Apple car play.
