Hi, I am Alex and I would like to thank WapCar for providing me with the place to write my first car review.
About My Car
- Car info: Mazda CX-5 2.5T
- Order date: March 2020
- Delivery date: June 2020
- Price: RM168,852
Reason to Buy
Ever since Mazda launch the first CX-5 back in 2012/2013, the new “KODO” design language had already caught my attention. So when I relocate back to Malaysia in March this year, I told myself I had to get 1.
I place the order for a CX-5 in March without even doing a test drive due to COVID-19 and had patiently waiting until MCO is lifted. Eventually I got my car in June 2020.
My Experience CX5
- First impression
My first impression of this car is that it looks pretty sexy on the outside and interior wise it came with most of the bell and whistles like Apple Car Play / Android Auto as standard, dual AC zone.
- The most stand out feature
The most stand out feature that this model had compare to other variant is the HUD, the HUD will display the speed/BSM and if you use Mazda own navigation it will display the directions as well which I found to be extremely useful. When I start driving it. I feel the car is powerful and easy to drive in its class.
- LEDs Auto levelling lights
This car came with LEDs Auto levelling lights as it brightens up dark spots on roads effectively at night while giving other drivers a heads-up when you are approaching.
- The torque
228HP and 420NM torque is sufficient for a petrol head like me and I knew I could always do some modifications if I feel is not sufficient later on.
- Petrol consumption
The petrol consumption of around 7.7km/L – 8.9km/L is acceptable to me as you cant expect to have power and great fuel efficiency unless you go for Hybrid cars.
Below are the Pros and Cons of my CX-5 2.5T
Best Sleek Looks (design) and colour

Side mirror folding got noise
