2018 Mazda CX-5 Akera petrol review


The 7.0-inch display is small by today’s standards, though the graphics are neat enough and the camera image sharp and clear for the rear-view and surround-view cameras.

The Akera’s black leather upholstery, with electrically adjustable front seats, contributes to an upmarket look and feel, along with plenty of soft-touch plastics, gloss-black surrounds, and faux-wood trim inserts. All side windows can be raised/lowered with a single touch, too.

On the practical side, there are wide door bins up front, a storage compartment beneath the centre stack, cupholders, and a usefully sized console bin featuring a tray, 12V socket and USB/AUX ports.

Mazda also acknowledges smartphones will be used in the rear seat: lifting the lid on the rear centre armrest reveals another two USB ports and a felt-lined tray to store devices.
