Mazda CX5 wins the Carbuyer “Best cars for Winter” Award.
The CarBuyer Awards have titled the Mazda CX5 as the Best Car for Winter in their annual awards.
The awards compared a number of industry leading SUVs and 4x4s against each other and judged them thoroughly on a variety of factors, stripping bear the best and worst features of each car, to give a comprehensive overview of each one.
The Mazda CX5 claimed top prize and was specifically praised for its good ride and handling, its attractive and distinctive styling and its powerful, economical engine.
Throughout the comparison of all the vehicles, the judges specifically paid attention to:
MPG, running costs & CO2
Interior & comfort
Engines, drive & performance
Practicality & boot space
Reliability & safety
Price, value for money & options
It wasn’t just a war of SUVs and crossover vehicles put through their paces, but a very clear overview of all different styles and models on the market today, that are perhaps less likely to get stuck when the winter throws the worst of the weather at you! Competitors included the BMW Series 3 saloon which features xDrive four-wheel drive as well as the Audi TT Coupe which offers its quattro four-wheel-drive system.
However, when it comes to ultimate winter driving, despite being commended, it would appear that the SUVs perform better that the four wheel drive family cars and Sports Coupes. SUV’s obviously have the added advantage of raised suspension that allows them to deal not only with slippery roads, but also tougher off-road conditions. Check out the full review here
