Interior quality was one of the previous CX-5’s biggest flaws, and it’s the area Mazda has worked hardest on. It shows: the latest CX-5 is much classier inside than the low-rent Ford Kuga, for example, although admittedly not quite as well screwed together as a Skoda Kodiaq.
Most of the surfaces are soft to the touch, and those that aren’t tend to be hidden low down. There’s an eclectic mix of materials that work together to enhance the ambience, including leather highlights around the centre console and, depending on which trim you opt for, attractive plastic or wood inserts on the dashboard.
