    Needs an RDX comparison, NX is long in the tooth already. Not surprised it beat the NX.

    The NX's ride (on all trim levels) is also worse, though tolerable on the base 17" wheels.

    They need to really convince the RAV4, Rogue and CRV people that the CX-5 is a worthy option. I spend lots of time in a Rogue - which must get the majority of its sales from the rental market - and it is a terrible vehicle with a sole exception. The infotainment system is much better than the Mazda. CarPlay starts in less than a nano second and the screen is a higher resolution so everything looks better. And the touch method works very well in CarPlay.

    It's gotten crazy when people buy a vehicle based on the entertainment system.

    Yeah people went totally nuts over AA/CP. Infotainment is a big deal to some (not me).

    Honestly, as terrible as it sounds, the Rogue is the car of the future. Nobody cares about the driving experience. The Rogue has a great infotainment system, radar controlled cruise control, semi-automated driving and zero driving feel. The perfect car for America.

    I have heard in China, infotainment systems are the #1 driver of car sales. People there want cutting edge tech and that is what is driving the industry.

    Unfortunately I was. People dropping the CX-5 off their list because No Apple Carplay, No Android Auto. Sad.

    Agreed.
    How long until they rethink that hideous hourglass grill that's across their whole line of vehicles? Crazy how they've latched onto that thing and won't let it go.
    Deal breaker for me.

    Lexus front looks like a vacuum cleaner. Aren't they about $20,000 more than a CX5?
