Wonder which motor is in that Crosstrek? Might it be the diesel? Couldn't find info on the video. Obviously shot abroad.

All that comes to mind at the end is that the Mazda really does have a little extra "zoom zoom." Although it looks from video shake like the XV had a much smoother ride until it reaches the higher speeds.

We test drove the cx-5 before the Subaru & it was no comparison for us! The funny thing is when we 1st starting looking hubby pretty much wanted Subaru from beginning..I had only seen pics on crosstrek online & thought it was ok..but I loved the mazda cx-5 after test driving mazda I wasn't impressed...then we drove the crosstrek & I was converted over to Subaru!lol The crosstrek was definitely a smoother ride!

Ok, am I the only one that didn't realize we were watching km/h and thought "damn, that Crosstrek hit 60mph WAY faster than mine!" Anyone else...?

Yep. Fell for it !! I'm still thinking diesel....? Also a different speedo/tach layout. Gotta be Euro or somewhere else abroad.

I had the same thought. Didn't notice the km/h until they started creeping higher and higher, and I found myself thinking "this can't be right...."

Definitely no comparison for me either! The Mazda really lacked in the useful power department. I simply meant the CX-5 had an extra 10/kph top speed compared to the XV (thus the extra zoom zoom).

I loved my 2011 Mazda 3 2.5L hatch so I was really surprised by how little the CX-5 interested me. I test drove it 10 minutes after testing the Crosstrek and the decision was easy.

Still haven't made it down to the local Subaru dealer to try out an XV.
We have a Mazda dealer in the town where I work, so I stopped in recently & tested a CX-5 & I definitely couldn't live with that every day. With the auto, it felt slower than my wife's Civic.
