2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg
- Plano, Texas, USA
Brakes: The brakes offer decent feedback, and are what I'd call "average". Nothing about them stands out---good, or bad. "They're brakes..." is what I'd say about them. These are still single piston, but the rotors are larger in the GT-R and Signature models, being 12.6" up front, and 11.9" for the rear, vs 11.7" and 11.9", respectively, in other other models, and I can't tell a lick of difference in how the vehicles stop.
Apparently CX-5 GT-R and Sig with 2.5T turbo do have 2-piston floating caliper at front, and GT, Touring, and Sport with 2.5L have single piston floating caliper at front. Further, this bigger 2-piston front caliper makes the factory spare coming with the car unmountable!Wtf, I didn't know the turbh had 2 piston caliper.. gonna see if the bracket is different could be a swap *
Parts catalog shows a single piston.
