How Mazda Will Brighten Dreary Winter Driving with the New 2022 CX-5

December 6th, 2021 by

Mazda’s popular CX-5 is getting a refresh. It’s coming this winter to Schomp Mazda. Critics are enthusing that this 2022 Mazda CX-5 is perhaps the best compact crossover available.


Car and Driver said, “You don’t need to drive the 2022 Mazda CX-5 hard to enjoy it or to appreciate its excellence. Sure, its precise steering and composed cornering make for one helluva Sunday cruise. But it also soaks up rough roads without commotion and has the ride quality of crossovers that cost twice as much. This harmonious interplay of dynamics is unrivaled by its competitors.” Kelley Blue Book’s reviewer summed up: “Superb styling everywhere … Drives like a premium European crossover.”
