The Mazda CX-5, a stylish, spacious and dynamic SUV model that accounts for approximately one-third of the company’s global unit sales, has received a significant update.
The first-generation Mazda CX-5 debuted in 2011 and had a full model change in 2017. The combined sales of these two generations have totalled more than three million units worldwide to date and won the hearts of many customers.
This major update includes an evolution of Mazda’s award-winning KODO design, with revised front and rear bumper designs combined with new headlight and tailgate clusters, giving the Mazda CX-5 a distinctly more modern and sharper look. Other changes include improvements to the design, dynamics performance, utility and convenience elements of the CX-5 and produce a greater sense of quality, both in appearance and the driving experience.
The updated Mazda CX-5 model range will offer six derivatives.
Exterior design is infused with a feeling of strength surged from the precisely designed form when light hit its surface.
For driving performance, the updated CX-5 uses the latest SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture. Driving dynamics, ride comfort and quality are improved. With a quieter cabin and improved ride comfort, drivers will feel more connected to the enjoyable driving experience.
The boot space of the updated Mazda CX-5 has been increased by eliminating the height difference between the cargo area floor and the tailgate sill. Not only does this flat entranceway make loading and unloading of heavy goods far easier, it also secures an even wider flat space when the rear seat is folded down.
Mazda CX-5 Akera
The flagship Akera model received most of the changes. It offers a sportier interpretation with gloss black detailing on the bumper, wheel arches, side mouldings, door mirrors, signature wing and larger dual tailpipes. Subtle red accents in the grille, a larger tailpipe and 19-inch black metallic alloy wheels finish the sporty look.
The updated Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a three-year unlimited kilometre Mazda service plan, three-year unlimited kilometre Mazda warranty and a three-year unlimited roadside assistance.
