The 2020 Mazda CX-5 is delightfully upscale

Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

The Mazda CX-5 is one seriously good looking utility vehicle.

In Signature trim, this vehicle's cabin is incredibly luxurious.

The CX-5 doesn't have an unattractive angle.

The Mazda Connect infotainment system is not only homely, it's unnecessarily difficult to use.

Fold the rear backrest down and you get nearly 60 cubic feet of junk-hauling space.

Signature models of the CX-5 feature oodles of Nappa leather and real wood trim.

The CX-5's 2.5-liter turbocharged engine delivers up to 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque.

That engine is potent, but it's a bit noisier and feels coarser than expected.

Signature models roll on stylish 19-inch wheels.
