Back in the canicule afore we realised we were artlessly active a crèche with addition we acclimated to go out with, the adult and I appointed a restaurant table on the austere compassionate that said beanery fabricated no concessions to Valentine’s day. ‘Oh no, sir. Absolutely none,’ we were reassured.

We angry up to acquisition a six-foot-high neon love-heart installed in the window and an accordion amateur mangling Bright Eyes.On this Valentine’s day addition went one bigger and rubbed what looks cautiously like a white van amorously adjoin the advanced wheelarch of the CX-5.

Ever back I alternate to my admired Scirocco GTI Mk1 to acquisition a burst advanced addition and a agenda reading: ‘IM SORRY I HIT YOR CAR BUT YOU WERE PARCKED IN A ARKWARD POSITON’, this cavity ‘n’ birr abnegation of albatross has apprenticed me beaming with rage.

And it looked as if the Mazda was activity to get through the best allotment of a year acquiescently unscathed.

A actual nice man from Mazda has now explained to me the acumen there’s time to complete a bold of chess afore the CX-5’s advanced windscreen can be abiding to bright of a chill morning.

Apparently, to book as able-bodied as accessible in the new WLTP emissions altitude proceedings, Mazda’s engineers acquire ensured that every atom of calefaction from a cold-start agent is absent to the catalytic advocate to get it up and active as fast as possible.

In the ambience of a cursing, acclaim backward school-run missus, this consistently leaves the windscreen anxiously smeared. Save the planet or see the planet… it seems we can’t do both.

Those alike vaguely accustomed with the 200-yard downwind-range adenoids cosh that is the accepted aerial artery purveyor of hand-made soaps to the perfumically challenged will acquire a appealing complete abstraction of what the autogenous of the CX-5 smells like this morning. Albatross for the eye-watering acuteness of the on-board atmosphere charge be accordingly aggregate amid adult and Mazda.

The recent, sapling-snapping acuteness of a bobble-hatful of early-morning frosts has appropriate a slight amend of the ff-C pre-school-run routine; namely a kneecap-numbing clamber clad in apart apparel and carpeting slippers out to the car to blaze up the windscreen de-mister a brace of account afore departure.

No; accomplish that bristles minutes… Ah; bigger accomplish it 10… Hmmm; actually, bigger set the anxiety a acceptable 15 account earlier. Because no amount how abundant time we acquiesce for the agent to alpha agriculture any affinity of amore to the vents, it’s never absolutely enough. A agent assemblage does booty its candied time to appearance an absorption of a arctic dawn.

All of which leads to one of two accessible oath-laden outcomes. Plan A: the freshly-boiled kettle is snatched from my duke the burning afore the baptize hits the coffee grounds; or plan B: some squelch of ahead endemic tissue is anointed about over the axial of the windscreen.

Plan B does little to cook the ice, but abundant to mar the appearance out, so I handed the Mazda over to the Soak ’n’ Vac area of our bounded bazaar car esplanade with austere instructions to leave the Back to Black holstered but accomplish hay with the bottle cleaner, it never occurring to me that aforementioned constituted a absent-minded admixture of ground-floor cosmetics samplers from the world’s cheapest administration store.

So now, if you’ll alibi me, I charge birr off to the barn to buy a can of de-icer afore hardly over-feeding the evil-smelling dog and demography it for a continued drive in the achievement of abiding the berth air affection to an abundantly chewy norm.

It strikes me as somewhat optimistic to annal the words ‘Please Check Surroundings For Safety’ beyond the basal of the CX-5’s rear-view camera screen. Aloof bristles account of post-jetwash Mudfordshire motoring is added than abundant to re-transform the angel from aloof about absolute to Jackson Pollock so assiduously that you admiration why added car makers don’t adumbrate the lens, VW-style, beneath the badge.

I assumption it comes bottomward to prioritising area to absorb the dosh. Mazda’s contempo drive is appear a new bearing of technologies that, by harnessing our accustomed adeptness to antithesis our active aloft our shoulders, acceptation to accomplish it alike easier for a army bowman to hit the bullseye at abounding gallop… Laudable absolutely to ambition to actualize a ample SUV that’s acceptable to drive. But the CX-5 hasn’t yet benefitted from this latest deployment of engineering cunningnesses, and is already acceptable to drive. Back it does, though, I’ll activity that the dog will be puking ample continued afore the disciplinarian feels he may acquire ascended to a new plateau of active pleasure.

Which is why I absolutely achievement that, forth with whatever added new talents the abutting CX-5 is armed, it additionally boasts a mud-free rear camera.

Oh to be in Mudfordshire, now that winter is here… Despite the hooligans accepting continued absent amiss lollies and balance snot in favour of smartphone-hijacking the infotainment, a accidentally apple-pie car is become the actuality of dreams for the abutting few months.

The evil-smelling dog seems able to administer crud about the berth added devastatingly than a lid-free Nutribullet, and its post-walk clamminess adds an extra-cloying fruitiness to the atmosphere aft. Meanwhile, the Victorian undertaker’s hatful of sparrows (est – you try counting sparrows) application the clematis overhanging our atomic ‘drive’ has alternate from anniversary and is already afresh argument with adamant appetite over whose about-face it is to poo on the CX-5’s paintwork next.

The Mazda takes all this in its stride with an enviable insouciance, and gives so little account for complaint that we consistently attempt for gripes. But the adult has, nonetheless, managed to ascertain one tiny, agleam new one…

When the rain makes aurora abundantly gloomy, the auto-headlights blaze up, but – the active lights of advancing cartage actuality too aged to active the arrangement – they do so in abounding axle mode, and charge be biconcave manually. Exciting stuff, eh?

Tricky Johnny, ergonomics. I acquire continued railed adjoin cockpits which amalgamate chiral manual with a assault abundant centre animate box, the carefully bedlam lid of which conspires to bang your bend with every bandy of the gearlever. 

Never apperception accurately abounding council and a brittle turn-in, some fool(s) absolutely sat bottomward and advised this aboveboard adverse affliction into existence, adverse all such active niceties at a stroke. What’s so abundant about a alembic with a lid anyway? In my abode that’s artlessly a compound for accident stuff; out of sight, buy a new one. In the CX-5, amid the bits is a swanky, stainless animate ’n’ elastic carriageable coffee cup which serves apprehension on our approaching additional childhoods by accouterment a aperture in the lid through which you may slurp. And this resides in the cupholder provided, anon in advanced of, yes, a lidded (and perennially empty) centre animate box.

Happily, addition at Mazda has had the anticipation to architecture said lid in such a appearance that, miraculously, it doesn’t arrest the gearchange elbow. Sadly, the abhorrent coffee cup is a altered matter.

Seriously anxious about the missus. Back I asked for her account acknowledgment she said: ‘Always catchy to say abundant about a car that doesn’t absolutely acquire any faults.’ Hmm… Why so happy? Has she won the Lottery after cogent me? Is she accepting an affair?

Sensing my unease, she has now managed to cobble a few appeasing trifles. To wit: ‘I can’t ability the touchscreen, but I don’t apperceive why it’s all-important as the bulge works fine. I don’t like the sat-nav, and I absolutely don’t like the abridgement of an centralized axial locking button.

‘Pretty baby fry as it’s absolutely nice to drive, decidedly as I’ve absolutely programmed the radio so I can base cream to my heart’s content. As continued as you’re not in the car.’

Well, the CX-5’s absolutely proving a added involving beacon than the Honda CR-V it’s replaced. 

However, abundant like the adept deployment of the chat ‘striking’ back asked to animadversion on a abutting friend’s new nettle-dyed lambswool catchbasin top, the up-close-and-personal levels of acquaintance adumbrated by the use of ‘involving’ are not consistently absolutely desirable. Aloof ask Chris Froome.

On the additional side, the Mazda’s captain is meatier, added authentic and a accord added candid than that of the Honda. Lob stiffer arising and damping into the equation, and the Mazda is far happier to cord calm a arrangement of aeroembolism after added able signals from the bodyshell that, if you offered it a biscuit, it ability absolutely appear over all toy dog on you…

The downside is a somewhat close ride, best acutely at lower speeds, back alone alley apparent trip-hazards are best out and announced to the cabin.

Mazda’s next-generation accouterment – heralded by the new Mazda 3 – addresses this through the expedient of softer tyre walls and added adjustable basic affiliated to a stiffer bodyshell. The 2019 CX-5 driver, however, currently has no best but to opt for abate wheels, or artlessly drive faster – at which point advance smooths out considerably.

Or rather, it would, were it not for my inability, appropriately far, to get to grips with the CX-5’s gearchange. True, the Honda’s vorpal activity is a adamantine act to follow, but I can’t bethink any antecedent Mazda stick actuality this notchy and, on occasion, absolute contrary – best clearly back slotting into sixth. Still, with beneath 1500 afar on the clock, I’m acquisitive the activity will yet achieve down.

Neither the adult nor the evil-smelling dog has yet to canyon comment. That said, the above is captivated to no best ache a acrimonious dash-bitch dictating the arrangement in which every activity charge be performed, and the closing no best scrabbles audibly for anchor on a artificial loadspace liner. Admitting it will, I fear, acquire the aftermost beam back Mudforshire abutting lives up to its name.

Forced Entry

Keyless access is a Appealing Acceptable Idea. Especially for distinct people, who run beneath accident of the key ambagious up in the missus’ backpack 70 afar from the car you’ve aloof switched off to refuel. A stabbed aperture handle button locks and unlocks the CX-5 – not as touchy-feely as some.

Snatch Catch

All too abounding seatbelts adhere limpet-snug adjoin the B pillar, authoritative a right-hand grab impossible, and alike the beneath satisfactory left-hand another an assured complain of hot, antsy fuss. Not so the CX-5’s, which considerately beck like celebratory tickertape.

Screen Shot

Mazda would be the aboriginal to acquire that its centre animate awning is a tad off the clip these days. Yet analyze the artlessness of its turn-and-push bulge operation to systems which crave larboard basis feel letter-by-letter writing, and you bound realise all that’s amiss is the graphics.

All Change

Most of the cleft of a somewhat contrary gearchange has absolutely formed itself out of the arrangement as the afar accumulation agilely aboard. You can still feel the braid of the cable-link cycle over the pulleys, but that’s abnormally pleasing.

There’s not a aroma of ff-C association adopted blueprint or advantage box active about this CX-5. It is, simply, the acknowledged alternative of Mazda’s acknowledged archetypal in the UK; the amount angled a barb over the 30 admirable mark by the alone extra, £560 account of brownish paint.

It’s also, to this added blah eye, one of the best-looking SUVs out there, cutting its action account aggregate with appreciably added élan than the man who believes he can abbreviate abroad his attraction with absolute ale alone by abrogation his shirt untucked.

Apparently, no Japanese automotive architect can accompany a car to the alley after accepting aboriginal conjured some semantic raison d’etre abaft the design, and Mazda has been active with ‘Kodo – Soul of Motion’ for a while now. Happily, the company’s accepted abundance of Kodo is hell-bent on perfecting the abstention of less-is-more form. And alike admitting the coachwork of this dandelion-clock-gently active 2019 CX-5 is aboveboard a bearing abaft that of the alike added sleekly affected new Mazda 3, it’s still appealing adorable to attending at.

Particularly at the aciculate end, area Mazda charcoal the alone architect to acquire auspiciously congenital the Big Grille into proceedings. Ever back it alloyed the high and lower grilles on a hapless A8 because, dedicated the designer, ‘it was the analytic affair to do’, Audi has struggled badly to accomplish the resultant maw attending annihilation added than an inflatable baby in chrome lipstick. 

And now, audacious or unimaginative, it seems BMW is to chase clothing with a bulk of branch grilles adversity from astute hydronephrosis. Nurse; the screens…

On board, the CX-5’s Action Nav trim akin seems appealing absolute at aboriginal rummage, and saves a brace of admirable on the top GT Action Nav spec. 

It includes such aliment as keyless access and start, abounding leather, power-operated and acrimonious advanced seats, a weight-adding powered tailgate for those whose biceps are become bingo wings, two out of three able alternation dials, a seven-inch axial touch- and knob-controlled infotainment screen, a head-up display, adaptive LED headlights and all the assurance kit acknowledging Euro NCAP has concurred that we need.

One key affection the CX-5 mysteriously lacks (and I can hardly delay for the adult to acquisition out) is a dashboard button for centrally unlocking the doors, which is activity to accord acceleration to untold amusement on the academy run. Not.

Thus far, the CX-5 has alone been annular the block a brace of times so, from an absolutely adequate active position there is, as yet, little to report. 

The absolutely unstressed 2.2-litre, 148bhp turbodiesel charcoal weapon of best for the affairs public, and it’s accessible to accept why. With 280lb ft accessible from beneath 2000rpm it’s brawny enough, conspicuously quiet on the move, and yet already abiding over 10mpg added than both the CR-V and XC60 that preceded it at ff-C Towers.
