2016 Mazda CX-5 SportAmong the most popular compact crossover SUVs on the market right now, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is tough to beat. It comes in three different trim levels, but perhaps the most noteworthy is the entry-level 2016 Mazda CX-5 Sport, boasting plenty in terms of power, performance, and equipment. For a base-level trim, the Mazda CX-5 Sport definitely doesn’t disappoint.

  • 2.5L Engine: Generating a capable 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque, this four-cylinder engine comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. You’ll have your choice of front-wheel drive to reach 33 mpg on the highway, or all-wheel drive for 30 mpg highway.

Its 2.5L engine provides more than enough power for merging and passing maneuvers on highways, while its six-speed automatic transmission proves more responsive than most in this vehicle class, with quick and smooth shifts. The manual transmission paired to the 2.4L engine surprises us with manageable shifts as well.
