2013 Mazda CX-5 Makes “10 Best Interiors” List

April 30th, 2012

The all-new 2013 Mazda CX-5 was recently announced as one of WardsAuto‘s 10 Best Interiors. A newcomer to the compact crossover SUV segment, CX-5 boasts the best highway fuel economy – even against hybrids – of any SUV sold in North America at 35 miles per gallon (mpg). It showcases SKYACTIV Technology and Mazda’s innovative engineering philosophy on fuel-saving technologies.

“To separate itself from the competition, the 2013 CX-5 had to offer not just the same features and options as other compact crossover SUVs, but be better, stronger, and smarter than those other offerings,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO). “For CX-5 to be honored with such a distinct award is a testament to Mazda’s passionate attention to every detail – from dynamics and engineering to safety and design.”

All new or significantly changed production vehicles are eligible for review by the editors of WardsAuto. Interiors are rated based on material selection, ergonomics, driver information, safety, overall value, touch points/comfort, fit and finish as well as aesthetics/design harmony. There is no price cap for vehicle entries. The 2013 CX-5 Grand Touring was entered this year.

Previously known as “Auto Interiors of the Year” as part of the Automotive Interiors Show held annually in Detroit, WardsAuto became the title sponsor in 2005, renaming the awards to Ward’s 10 Best Interiors in 2011. The Mazda5 and MAZDASPEED3 were selected for the prestigious list in 2008 and 2010, respectively.
