My review will be on Mazda CX-5 Signature 2019. Mazda CX-5 Signature has become even cooler, more expensive and more prestigious.
The CX-5, with its excellent handling, is still one of the best crossovers in this class.
It’s hard to criticize the Mazda CX-5 Signature. In fact, with the exception of outdated multimedia and an almost useless LCD display in the dashboard (at a diagonal of 7 inches, it displays information so small that you could use a smaller screen for this), the Mazda compact crossover is a great car in every sense. It looks great, rides great, and handles great.
I could not remember in this segment as attractive a crossover as the CX-5. It has almost perfect proportions, clean lines and an excellent profile. There is nothing revolutionary in the design of this car, but the CX-5, nevertheless, manages to stand out in the crowd of popular compact cars that have filled the roads.
The same applies to the dynamics and handling of the Mazda CX-5, which almost perfectly combines comfort for passengers with drive for the driver.
And yet, the Mazda CX-5 Signature is just great. Levers and switches, as well as all interior trim, are made of high-quality materials, pleasant to the touch and remind of more expensive and luxurious cars. Of course, there are simpler and cheaper elements, but they are usually out of direct contact with the driver and passengers.
The CX-5 combines gambling control, attractive appearance, relatively affordable price and a luxurious interior.
Mazda CX-5 has always been one of the best representatives of its class. And now it is more obvious than ever. What makes the updated 2019 model year car more attractive is the 2.5-liter turbo engine. It provides optimal power and torque for a SUV of this mass. With its new engine, the CX-5 has become even funnier, faster, more exciting and faster, at least by crossover standards.
The second advantage of this car after the more powerful engine, of course, is the high-class interior of the CX-5. In the top-end Signature version with maximum equipment, the interior is more like the interior of premium models such as Audi or BMW, rather than the modest Japanese Mazda. Leather rather soft front and rear seats are comfortable and provide good side support, and high-quality materials of the dashboard and door panels complement the feel of a premium car.
The only thing that disappointed me about this CX-5 is the onboard infotainment system. It is not terrible or hopeless, but it looks outdated compared to the other car manufacturers’ models, and it does not seem as convenient to use and functional in comparison with its rivals.

Ultimately, the updated 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature is a fine car that offers more power and equipment than the 2018 model. However, you can save money by opting for a less powerful, but very well-equipped CX-5 Grand Touring with an atmospheric 2.5.
