Yeah my dealer got 2 and already sold one. I started up and sat in the other GT AWD. The interior is really nice. Feels more like a German car than anything japanese. Guage cluster, steering wheel and center stack are all impressive with respect to look and feel. Even more surprising is how roomy it is. I'm 6'2" and I could sit behind myself in the rear seat! Really impressive for such a small SUV. Hopefully I can test drive one at some point. Though I believe it's probably underpowered.

My dealer got one CX-5 this week in the States. I took it for a spin yesterday.
I like the idea of Skyactive but in this SUV it feels lacking. 155HP just won't do it I'm afraid. Sure it's fine around town but get on the highway at 60mph and try to pass someone and there is just nothing there.
I can see the 2.0 gas engine in the Mazda3 but it's gonna take that 2.2 Diesel to move this car like it should.
