Irvine-based Mazda North American Operations has announced that WardsAuto World Magazine named its 2013 Mazda CX-5 to the publication’s 10 Best Interiors list. The magazine’s editors selected the finalists based on interior materials, ergonomics, safety, aesthetics and value.

A compact crossover SUV, the CX-5 averages a best-in-class 35 miles per gallon, using SKYACTIV technology to save fuel. Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the SUV a Top Safety Pick.

The Mazda5 and MAZDASPEED 3 have previously been featured on the Best Interiors list.

"To separate itself from the competition, the 2013 CX-5 had to offer not just the same features and options as other compact crossover SUVs, but be better, stronger and smarter than those other offerings," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations. "For CX-5 to be honored with such a distinct award is a testament to Mazda's passionate attention to every detail – from dynamics and engineering to safety and design."
