as much as Mazda wants to move upmarket, I still think this will be one of it's biggest competitors.
A tough choice: 2017 Honda CR-V vs. 2017 Mazda CX-5 - Autoblog

Quote:
At its simplest, the CX-5 is the best choice for the driver while the CR-V is the best choice for everyone else aboard. That's not to say they are myopic in those classifications – the CX-5 could still ably handle family duty, while the CR-V is impressively well-rounded to drive in a way that shouldn't turn off those seeking some driving involvement. However, each has a clear focus that sets it down a different path toward different target buyers.

THE DIESEL IS A' COMIN' TO 'MURICA

Of course this paragraph was buried in the last few pages and they didn't use the word Diesel in it (I searched first, got nervous then read the whole thing).

"Back at its L.A. Auto Show press debut in 2016, Executive VP of Mazda Motor Corporation Akira Marumoto announced
that Mazda would finally bring its long-awaited SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter engine to the U.S. in CX-5. The engine promises high
torque, quick response throughout its broad rev range, refinement and hybrid-like fuel-efficiency.
The engine is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2017 in the U.S., and pricing and specifications will be announced
closer to its on-sale date."

Thanks mate...

Mazda in OZ has said they have never had so much interest in any model in their history (well the CX-5 is their top selling car) and still #2 car maker/seller here, under Toyotal.

Mazda compared to any other brand is all class inside and out, nothing come close for the money.
Still dragging their feet on Android Auto and Car Play which is peeing off a lot of people.

Yeah, I was reading that the requests for info are off the CHARTS for this car down there. Let's hope that translates to sales both there and here.

AndroidAuto / CarPlay is apparently a hot topic for some.
Some exec (I forget which one) was quoted at last weekend's driving event in San Diego as saying they will retroactively enable it on these cars. Let's hope that isn't 3 years down the road though.

As a new owner of the 2017 6, I really hope android auto/carplay comes sooner than later. The infotainment system is in need of a refresh/overhaul if they want to stay competitive. I can't imagine its the work that's holding them up since carplay is already in the Atenza.
