Bosch Envisions are not inserts, they*re the whole blade. According to those who have used them, they seem to be happy with them. If I had a gen-2 CX-5, I*d have a hard time spending $60 for a pair of wiper blades.Are the Bosch inserts really that much better than the OEM? I'm really not liking my new OEM wiper blades, they skip across the glass a lot even with lots of water.
So this Bosch AeroTwin A 398 S doesnt need an adapter to hook up?I'll reply to my own question regarding European model of Bosch wiper for cx5 from 2017 to present. It is called Bosch aerotwin 398s a packet containing two front wipers for CX5 second generation. Just ordered the pair for 33 Euros.
Received it today (29th Nov.) and installed it. Dead easy to change from original to Bosch ones. Just have to press a button on the top of the wiper and pull it out. Then insert the new ones (the driver side wiper is longer than the other). They click in to place. The Bosch wipers are sturdier, thicker and very quiet. No hopping or juddering.

Perhaps the European Mazda has a different design for the wiper arm and it's not that model of blade that's different.That*s better than Bosch Envisions wiper blades which are available in the US as Bosch Envisions blades require adapter to hook up the wiper arm of gen-2 CX-5.
Here are the imprinted numbers on the original Mazda CX- 5 ((European "vision" model from 2017, the new Mazda Cx-5 two) wipers that I took out. look at your, if they are the same than you have the same original wipers.Perhaps the European Mazda has a different design for the wiper arm and it's not that model of blade that's different.
I believe they are the same design between US and Euro.
Stopped by my Mazda dealer and took a picture of wiper hook-up on a 2019 CX-5. Yep, its the same.These are the easiest wipers to remove and re install. Just press that black button and pull them out, take a photo and re insert them . Check the numbers on the photo and post them here. Done! I am just tempting you guys to the definitive answer on the question of USA supplied CX-5 having the same wiper blade as us here or not.Go for it! (2thumbs)
