Already one of our favorite compact crossovers, Mazda’s CX-5 gets a redesign for 2017 that – in virtually every measure – makes it a better choice than ever.
The official launch of the redesigned-for-2017 Mazda CX-5 is just around the corner; it’s slated to begin arriving in dealerships later this spring. The new CX-5 represents an evolution of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion design theme, a motif that debuted on the Mazda Shinari concept car of 2010. The new bodywork also bears an obvious family resemblance to the CX-5’s larger sibling—the redesigned-for-2016 Mazda CX-9 midsize SUV.
LOS ANGELES–Mazda displayed the new second generation of its compact crossover SUV at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2017 CX-5 is a fully redesigned model; though it looks to differ little in overall size from its predecessor, Mazda says it has a lower center of gravity and a slightly wider track. Styling is an evolution of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion motif, and picks up a cue or two from Mazda’s all-new 2016 CX-9 midsize SUV.

It was like a scene out of a cheesy TV show, but it actually happened to me last Saturday afternoon. I didn’t accelerate fast enough from a stoplight, and the Neanderthal in the Jeep behind me got ticked off. He wheeled into the left lane and—before zooming by me—shouted, “Hey, buddy [he actually called me buddy], put your foot on the gas!”
