Information, I'd glance at it if my 2019 had the screen. Merely to see what speed/load it engage at. Other then curiosity it wouldnt get much use after.Actually, it's true what he says about the CD. Why on earth would you want to look at that display instead of concentrating on DRIVING?
Obviously he's over the top in his presentation, but that's show biz.
You have to understand his sense of humour. It is true that why would you have a graphic of the cylinder deactivation working,or not when there are more pressing matters such as fixing any infotainment system bugs.Who pissed in his Cheerios?
What a hoser.
I think he's making the point that the cylinder activation/deactivation graphic is a pointless distraction which can only be useful viewed when moving. Radio stations can be changed while moving and stationary.Does he get this pissed when needing to change the radio station?
He's not exactly a Mazda CX5 hater... He finds the CD display pointless as would I. The novelty value would quickly wear off. For the sake of equality why can't there be a DPF regen display for the diesel?I wish mine had the CD display. It sounds like he never drove a CX-5.
Coming from a Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2010, my 2019 GTR cx5 is the lowest trim level that comes close to how nice the Jeep was. Yes, the Jeep broke a lot, but the interior was nice, solid, quiet, and the acceleration is still a touch better than the turbo 4 manages.Once I had to rent for a 300mi one-way trip.
They gave me a Tahoe because they were out of Versa's.
It had the typical 5.3l V8 and CD with some kind of dash indicator.
The trip was thru remote parts of CO and NM , a route w/ 50mph rough roads that I could achieve over 40mpg in something like my cx5.
I watched the dash and found that around 50mph it would show 28mpg if it was in 4cyl mode but if I just touched the gas slightly it would drop to 22mpg (at 50mph).
It would show 18-19mpg on the interstate but as most of the trip was on secondary roads it showed a reasonable number for the entire trip, considering it had a v8.
I didn't think the overall experience was much better than my cx5. True there is a bit more room around the seats, etc., but I think people that think big cars are way superior should try a modern 4cyl.
