The current CX-5 was always a little boring to me. Especially inside.
This one is quite an improvement. With a great interior.
(Still... I really miss the "Chinese only" CX-4. As it is truly one of Mazda's best design.)
The new CX-5 seems to be using the same engines as before. And also the 6 speed auto.
So it might not be as modern as it looks. An also not as some of its competition.
Like the new CR-V for example.
