2013 Mazda CX-5 looks better without the camouflage
It's a good-looking crossover, this CX-5, keeping true to Mazda's original Minagi concept that first bowed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. What's more, the CX-5 will be a much-welcomed replacement for the Ford-supplied Tribute crossover – a vehicle that never really set the sales charts on fire.
When we drove the CX-5, we were very impressed with the SkyActiv 2.0-liter gasoline engine, though we're still crossing our fingers that Mazda will offer the 2.2-liter diesel powerplant here in the United States. Nevertheless, we give the CX-5 two thumbs up, and you can see the final road-ready version in our attached high-res image gallery.
