Does 2.5 liters make a difference with the 2014 Mazda CX-5?

Continuing the momentum that the 2013 debut of the CX-5 brought to Mazda’s line up, the 2014 keeps delivering an automotive experience that has drivers wondering what Mazda will think of next. As a new Mazda dealership in Central Florida, Don Mealey’s Sport Mazda understands what auto shoppers are looking for in a crossover and are proud to meet these expectations with the 2014 Mazda CX-5. Last year’s model carried over a 2.0 liter engine capable of delivering 155 horsepower across all available trims. This year, Mazda has introduced a brand new 2.5 liter engine, alongside with the 2014 Mazda6, to up the ante on horsepower by 19% allowing drivers to attack hills and accelerate faster with ease.

Safety is always on Mazda’s mind with every new iteration of their vehicles and this remains the same with the 2014 CX-5. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the 2013 CX-5 a Top Safety Pick thanks to the safety conscious efforts of Mazda’s engineers. The 2014 continues to improve upon safety by introducing a new Smart City Brake Support system allowing drivers on dense urban roads to avoid low speed collisions by applying the brakes if the driver does not.

Mazda wins the Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost To Own Award

Chalk up another win for Mazda as they have been named Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost To Own Award winner for a non-luxury brand. As a new Mazda dealership, Don Mealey’s Sport Mazda in Orlando, Florida commonly hears from customers that sticker price is always a concern when purchasing a new vehicle, but long-term costs in fuel, maintenance and insurance greatly determine whether a car is really affordable. Kelley Blue Book examined the full line up of 2013 vehicles released over the past year across all brands and has officially recognized Mazda as the greatest in long-term vehicle value. Thanks to a low depreciating value, fuel costs, and costs for maintenance and repairs, KBB recognized that models such as the 2013 Mazda3 and CX-5 greatly increased Mazda’s rank to the top of the list compared to last year.

Not only did Mazda win for overall brand, but the 2013 Mazda5 won for the lowest 5-year cost in the minivan/van category. Mazda’s commitment to making affordable, efficient and fun to drive vehicles paints a picture of the future ahead full of more awards to solidify the Mazda brand a must-own.
