We use this car to drive our yellow labrador around, so if you are allergic to dogs, you may not like spending too much time in this car. We do a good job of keeping it clean but some dog fur always manages to stick around. You may also allow your dogs in the car, but please keep them in the way back.
Edmunds says, "The way the 2013 Mazda CX-5 drives is a dynamic departure from the compact SUV segment's otherwise typical low standards. The brakes, suspension and steering are uncommonly capable, and in general the CX-5 is downright fun and confidence-inspiriting to drive on a curving road.... The six-speed automatic shifts quickly and smoothly and is well-matched to the engine."
