Model Highlights

The 2015 Mazda CX-5 is offered in Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trims, including two different engines and a choice of front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

Base Mazda CX-5 Sport models are powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that makes 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Grand Touring models instead get a 2.5L version making 184 hp and 185 lb-ft. A 6-speed manual gearbox is only offered in the Sport, with front-wheel drive, and the rest of the lineup has a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Both engines are all-new designs, developed as part of Mazda's recent SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY engineering initiative; combining thermal and materials advancements with direct injection and high-compression designs, they're more fuel-efficient than most other engines in their class. 2.0L versions manage up to 26 mpg city, 35 highway.

The Mazda CX-5 otherwise manages to feel balanced, responsive and sprightly, even with its somewhat taller seating position. A responsive electric-boost rack-and-pinion power steering and sporty yet absorbent suspension, it's one of the best-handling compact utility vehicles.

The Mazda CX-5 is also very versatile. In all versions of the Mazda CX-5, the back seats are split 20/40/40 and fold nearly flat. Liftover height is low, and the resulting cargo floor is continuous, which should make it easy to pack in larger pieces of weekend cargo.

Sport models include a generous set of standard equipment, including many things that aren't always included at the base level, like alloy wheels, power mirrors, push-button start, keyless entry, cruise control, an overhead console and a USB audio input. Touring models add much more popular equipment, however, like leather steering-wheel and shifter trim, a rear-seat armrest, a rearview camera, steering-wheel audio controls, upgraded upholstery, and a 6-speaker sound system with 5.8-inch touch-screen interface, Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio, HD Radio, SMS text-messaging capability and the ability to play (and display) Pandora internet radio using a smartphone.

Grand Touring models add leather upholstery, a power driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, front heated seats, heated side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, a power moonroof, Sirius satellite radio and 9-speaker Bose audio.

Major factory options are grouped into just a few packages, including a Technology Package that adds navigation, bi-xenon headlamps, adaptive (pivoting) front lighting, an auto-dimming mirror and universal garage-door opener to the Grand Touring or Touring. An upgraded audio and infotainment system (and Bluetooth) is available on the Sport, and a Moonroof/Bose Package (Moonroof, 9-speaker Bose audio) on the Touring. There are just a few other port- or dealer-installed options, such as remote engine start, fog lamps, rear parking sensors and roof-rack accessories for kayaks, snowboards and other cargo.


Model News

Mazda CX-5 Touring and Grand Touring models get keyless entry and push-button start as a standard feature for 2015. Otherwise there are no significant changes to the 2015 Mazda CX-5.


Value Writeup

The 2015 Mazda CX-5 competes with the likes of the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape. Even in this crowd, it's one of the sportiest-driving models, with surprisingly good fuel economy ratings considering that. The Mazda CX-5 also stands out for offering a great ride quality and a flexible, spacious interior. The Mazda CX-5's infotainment system, with Bose sound, is one of the most feature-packed in its competitive set, too, with things like well-integrated Pandora internet radio.

Summary
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Mazda CX-5 vehicles manufactured June 27, 2013, to February 2, 2016. The affected vehicles have a fuel filler pipe that may rupture in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 301, "Fuel System Integrity."

Consequence
A rupture of the fuel filler pipe may result in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will alter the attachment between the fuel filler pipe and the left rear side of the bracket of the fuel filler pipe, free of charge. The recall began on February 25, 2016. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500, option 6. Mazda's number for this recall is 9216B.

Summary
Pilkington North America, Inc. (Pilkington) is recalling certain replacement windshields, model FW04026 GTY, manufactured November 23, 2015, to December 16, 2015 for use in Mazda CX-5 vehicles that are equipped with the Smart City Brake Support system. The affected windshields have a bracket mounted on the inside to hold a laser sensor or LIDAR device for the Smart City Brake Support system. These brackets were improperly affixed with only tape instead of tape and urethane and therefore may loosen.

Consequence
If the bracket loosens or detaches from the windshield, the safety features of the Smart City Brake Support system may be disabled and therefore increase the risk of a crash.

Pilkington will contact the wholesalers and retailers that purchased the windshields to try to identify the affected customers. The affected windshields will be replaced, free of charge. This recall began on February 15, 2016. Owners may contact Pilkington at 1-844-278-7230.

On the affected vehicles, the lift gate support struts may corrode, possibly causing the struts to break and/or the lift gate to drop unexpectedly.

Consequence

Summary
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2016 CX-3 vehicles manufactured June 1, 2015, to December 2, 2015, 2013-2014 Mazda2 vehicles manufactured July 3, 2013, to August 8, 2014, 2014-2016 CX-5 vehicles manufactured January 19, 2013, to December 2, 2015, and 2013-2015 CX-9 vehicles manufactured December 6, 2012, to July 31, 2015. The lower mounting nuts and bolts that attach the front strut assembly to the steering knuckle may loosen, allowing the steering knuckle to separate.

Consequence
If the steering knuckle separates from the strut assembly, it can cause a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the lower mounting nuts and bolts that secure the front strut assembly to the steering knuckle. If the bolts are loose, they will be replaced and then correctly tightened, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 20, 2016. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 9316D.
