Video review: The 2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv gets muddy & makes good first impression


The 2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv is all new from the ground up.

It is the first car that features Mazda’s new SkyActive approach to building lighter, more fuel efficient, and more responsive cars.

It heralds a new style which in the industry is called a new design language.

Unlike the former Mazda Tribute which shared a platform with the Ford Escape, and had what many people thought was a Mazda’s silly smiley face, the new 2013 Mazda CX-5 breaks all new design and performance ground. With a new 155 HP Sky G engine and sporty, flat ride and handling this newest entry into the the smallish CUV segment is ready to take on the big best selling boys like the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V.
