The car that introduced Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology and KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy, the Mazda CX-5, has been updated and re-designed to bring even more style, driving dynamics and efficiency to SUV drivers all over the world.
The original Mazda CX-5 has achieved global sales of over 1.5 million, and now accounts for around 25% of Mazda’s global sales - with the UK accounting for around 32,000 since 2012.
Featuring an all-new interior and a fully-revised body structure that has been designed under the concept of ‘Refined Toughness’ the second-generation CX-5 evolves Mazda’s front-end design, adding in sleeker sides and a lower roofline.
And with 15% stiffer torsional body rigidity, refinements to the steering, suspension and brakes, improvements to both noise and vibration reduction features, and the introduction of G-Vectoring Control (GVC), the all-new Mazda CX-5 is more comfortable, refined and responsive than ever.
The ten model UK range is powered by a familiar range of SKYACTIV engines, including a 2.0-litre 165ps SKYACTIV-G petrol engine offered exclusively with front-wheel drive and Mazda’s six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual gearbox, and available only in SE-L Nav and Sport Nav trim.
Both petrol and diesel engines are available, with diesel making up the bulk of the range with the popular 2.2-litre 150ps SKYACTIV-D diesel available with front-wheel drive, i-ACTIV AWD and a choice of SKYACTIV-MT or SKYACTIV-Drive gearbox. At the top of the range, the flagship 2.2-litre 175ps SKYACTIV-D comes exclusively in Sport Nav trim is equipped with Mazda’s i-ACTIV AWD, and can be matched to either automatic or manual transmission.
Both Mazda’s noise reducing Natural Sound Smoother technology and Transient Control also feature heavily in the diesel engines.
All models feature a generous standard equipment tally that includes:
Sport Nav cars add in:
There are also two new optional paint colours available - Soul Red Crystal Metallic and Machine Grey Metallic - both of which use Mazda’s unique three-layer TAKUMINURI painting technology.
Commenting on the all-new Mazda CX-5 Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director of Mazda Motors UK said: "The CX-5 will go down as a landmark car in Mazda’s history. Not only did it introduce SKYACTIV technology and KODO: Soul of Motion design, but it also showcased how Mazda could make an SUV that was stylish, great to drive and capable of luring customers from premium badged rivals. And today the all-new Mazda CX-5 takes this to the next stage, elevating exterior design, cabin quality and refinement to new levels of sophistication, whilst at the same time ensuring Mazda’s love of driving is even more apparent in the handling."
