The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

If you like to sit high up in your car, you’ll appreciate the Mazda CX-5’s lofty driving position, which feels higher than smaller family SUVs such as the Peugeot 3008 and Seat Ateca.

It’s easy to get comfortable, too. The driver’s seat comes with plenty of adjustment (electronically controlled if you avoid entry-level SE-L trim) and adjustable lumbar support as standard, while the steering wheel offers ample movement up, down, in and out.

Sat nav and infotainment

Every CX-5 comes with a 10.25in infotainment screen and DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring and built-in sat-nav. GT Sport models add an upgraded 10-speaker Bose sound system. 

The display is crisp and positioned high on the dashboard, so it’s easy to see without taking your eyes off the road for too long. You control it using a physical rotary dial positioned just behind the gearlever, which is much less distracting than operating the touchscreen-only set-ups in many rival cars.

We found the CX-5's infotainment more responsive and intuitive to use than the systems in the Citroën C5 Aircross or Peugeot 5008.
