    Two words: aftermarket wipers.

    I have a 2017 mazda cx5 and the car has been absolutely reliable and a great pleasure to drive, except on one point. The wipers really suck. The driver side wiper jumps, skips and sticks. It has been terrible during the November rain. I tried washing the windscreen with window washer, applying silicon to wiper blade and many other things without any improvement.
    Bosch envision is not available in Europe. Has any one European replacement for these wipers?

    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.

    So this Bosch AeroTwin A 398 S doesnít need an adapter to hook up?

    No adapter needed. It just slides in to the arm and clicks in to place!

    Thatís 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.

    Perhaps the European Mazda has a different design for the wiper arm and it's not that model of blade that's different.

    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.

    I believe they are the same design between US and Euro.

    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!

    Stopped by my Mazda dealer and took a picture of wiper hook-up on a 2019 CX-5. Yep, itís the same.

    I just sent Bosch an email asking if there is an equivalent product available here in the states.
