In total, we’d be hard pressed to find a customer that spends close to
$30,000 on the new CX-5 and comes away disappointed. Prices start at $24,045 and go up to $30,695 with the most expensive CX-5 (according to current options) topping out at $33,120. In other words, you’re getting more than what you pay for in terms of standard features, capability, luxury, and above all, engaged but comfortable driving. Fuel economy may be lacking with a rating of 27 mpg combined (24 city, 31 highway with 1 mpg subtracted from each figure in AWD models), but the exchange is a driving experience that outdoes many luxury competitors.
