Mazda CX-5 GT 2016 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7
The all-wheel drive only GT opens the bidding at $44,090 for the 2.5-litre all-wheel drive automatic and $47,090 for diesel.

The all-wheel drive only GT opens the bidding at $44,090 for the 2.5-litre all-wheel drive automatic and $47,090 for diesel.

The GT is $7600 more than the Maxx Sport, but comes with a lot of extra gear.

The 2.0 litre is not available in the GT so you have a choice of 2.5-litre petrol or 2.2-litre turbo-diesel, both automatic and all-wheel drive. The 2.5's kerb weight is 1630kg while the diesel adds 75kg to weigh in at 1705kg.

The GT's standard features list grows with 19-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, LED front fog lamps, active LED headlights, electric glass sunroof, electric front seats, black or white leather trim, Bose nine-speaker stereo and keyless entry to add to keyless start. 

The GT also picks up front and rear parking sensors and reverse auto emergency braking which automatically stops you backing into things and people.
