    2022 CX-5?

    In America, they are to look cool. In Britain, they are to help you to be seen in the bloody freezing fog!

    RUMOUR: New CX-9 (possibly CX-90) destined for release in 2024

    Yeah, I use the CX-9 as a two row vehicle with a large back area. Easy to put in bikes and other stuff. But if the CX-50 is close with all the nice things plus some of the CX-9 Sig, I would be tempted!

    RUMOUR: New CX-9 (possibly CX-90) destined for release in 2024

    Question for you though, would you trade in your CX-9 for a bigger CX-5 (CX-50?) with an inline 6 engine but only two rows?

    RUMOUR: New CX-9 (possibly CX-90) destined for release in 2024

    It might be hard to get 3 more years out of the current CX-9. Sales are good but not sure how much more they can add to the car. As for a wish list: 1) 8+ speed transmission 2) better hands free driving 3) more and functional drive modes. 4) better gas mileage. Drove my son's Mazda 3 600...

    Sorry to drag up an old thread but you have any pictures? How do you like them?

    2022 CX-5?

    I would argue the Mazda interior looks nothing like that. That is cheesy. I don't believe for a second the Mazda interior will look cheesy.

    2022 CX-5?

    Yeah, these are in lots of places now. I really like this color and the seats are kinds neat as well. From the styling and the pics, looks like they are trying to hit the Subaru crowd. Get the feeling they are shooting for the CX-5 to be the "younger people" car and something else will takes...

    2022 CX-5?

    Where do you think they put the Mi-Drive knob/switch. Does it replace the sport switch? I do wonder why they are making all their vehicles AWD. That has to impact their MPG numbers and even a slight drop (1 MPH) can have an impact.

    2022 CX-5?

    I will wait to pass judgement until I see it in person. I think these changes could be good and hopefully will help maintain the sales momentum. The red, as usual, looks great. The all white looks funny. Someone had posted somewhere how a CX-30 would look all color matched and it looked dull...

    2021 CX-9 Wireless Charger: Part number and retrofit?

    Agree 100%. And because there is really no other "junk" storage locations, that is where my masks, cards, etc go. Just useless.

    2022 CX-5?

    I was pushing the QX50 on my wife - wanted to try something new. The car was loud, rough, had a CVT transmission and was close 10K over a CX-5. The seats were good but the dash and all the interior stuff felt cheap. Not sure why anybody would buy that car.

    2022 CX-5?

    They have already stated that it is based upon the 2.0 Skyactive X engine. Not the 2.0 in the Miata. Honestly, Ppeople are going to be disappointed. All this talk of 350 HP and competition with a BMW or Porsche is just silly. Expect the 6 cylinder to have the same relative performance as the...

    Mazda unveils 350 HP MAZDA3 TCR

    Err, isn't this the report from early 2020 and a car that never materialized?
