    We're considering a 2015 Mazda CX-5. Anyone have a review or recommendation to help us decide?

    I can't review the Mazda, but I do have a recommendation if you want a really good, reliable car. I have been driving a Toyota Prius for 4 years and have not had a minute's problem with it. (Very refreshing, considering that my former SUV was a shop queen.)  I get 51-52 mpg. on the highway and 42-44 mpg. in city traffic when driven in the economy mode, which I do most all the time. It handles great and has enough power in that mode for 95% of my driving. If I need more power, such as pulling out in traffic or driving up a hill, I put it in regular mode and it has nearly as much power as my former 6 cyl. SUV. It also has a very powerful mode, but I've only used it once or twice when navigating up a steep mountainous road in North Arkansas. It also has an electric-only mode good for about 25 miles if the car runs out of gas.
    The regular Prius is a roomy 5-passenger auto, but you might want to check out the Prius V, which is an SUV version of the regular Prius and gets a little, but not much less, mpg than my Prius. It is probably similar in size to the Mazda CX-5.
    The Prius starts at about $2,000 more than the Mazda, but this car instantly saved me $150-200 a month on fuel, which made the $391 mo. payment very affordable.
    I would recommend to anyone to never be afraid to buy a hybrid auto or SUV, but like gas-only powered vehicles, do your homework because some are better than others. Good luck to you.

      I didn't realize the Prius came in an SUV "flavor." Good to know! Our neighbors had a Prius and really liked it. Thanks for the helpful information, MizBejabbers!
