    Post Official 2017 2nd-Gen CX-5 EPA Fuel Economy Ratings Are Out

    So the official 2017 2nd-Gen CX-5 EPA fuel economy ratings are out at FuelEconomy.gov website:



    And new CX-5 indeed has worse MPG than previous gen CX-5 on EPA ratings. 2017 FWD changed from 2016's 29/26/33 to 27/24/31 and AWD changed from 2016's 26/24/30 to 26/23/29 combined/city/highway. By comparison new 2017 Honda CR-V Touring is rated at 30/28/34 on FWD and 29/27/33 combined/city/highway on AWD. The advantage on CR-V is as much as 4 mpg than CX-5. Now once the proud class leading CX-5 on fuel efficiency with SkyActiv Technology, "Sips gas like a miser, moves you like a Mazda"、"Best Highway MPG of any SUV - Including Hybrids" is no longer!

    Works out to about $100/year in fuel costs more than the CRV.

    MPG doesn't matter, its L/100KM or Gal/100Mi that does.

    Interesting! The mpg getting squeezed out of the CR-V is impressive. For the model years I'm currently shopping (used) the CX-5 gets better a better mpg rating and fuelly average so that's one of the things that has made me fall in love with it.

    I know, it is never ending.

    The only thing I will add is that if you go to Fuelly you will find the 2017 CR-V is this :

    169 fuel-ups and 45,537 miles of driving, the 2017 Honda CR-V gets a combined Avg MPG of 26.36 with a 0.67 MPG margin of error.

    and the 2016 CX-5 is this:

    Based on data from 325 vehicles, 9,756 fuel-ups and 2,853,135 miles of driving, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 gets a combined Avg MPG of 26.06 with a 0.08 MPG margin of error.

    This forum has turned into a bunch of babies.

    Well, the engine/transmission is the same, except in 2016 supposedly it was improved for better mileage, but Mazda is forced to be more and more honest as time goes by....another "I told you so" moment for me, I guess...

    Most forums are dominated by complaints about expensive hardware failure. With little to note on that front, this one is dominated by petty MPG threads. Some folks just like to bitch.

    How is it possible that it gets worse gas mileage? As Donald Trump would say, 'Sad!'

    So it outperforms the CX5 in every way, power-wise. Nice!

    I don't think it does. I just think Mazda is being more honest. It uses the same drivetrain as the previous years, and supposedly it's "slicker".

    Better 0-60, better 1/4 mile performance, and it gets better real-world economy and better EPA rated economy. What math are you looking a t?
