Mazda’s all-new CX-5 crossover SUV boasts updates that include LED head and front fog lamps, auto headlamp leveling, newly designed 17″ alloy wheels, rear ventilation, USB for rear centre armrest and auto door lock from the Active petrol derivative. Newly designed 19″ alloy wheels, leather seats, 8-way power adjustable lumber support driver seat and auto fold mirrors are added from the Dynamic model and from the Individual derivative; the 10 speaker BOSE system, head-up display, powerlift tail gate as well as the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) and Driver Attention Alert (DAA) advanced safety features.

The interior’s cabin insulation, windshield projected head-up display, improved seats and advanced ergonomics throughout, give a more cultured and intuitive “heads-up” cabin that prioritizes driver and passenger comfort. The new crossover SUV adds a new dimension to Mazda’s human-centric philosophy; extending the driver-and-car-as-one Jinba-Ittai sensation offering to all occupants. It also adopts the first of the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS vehicle motion control technologies; G-Vectoring Control. This innovative software-based system controls body roll for better handling, while suspension and powertrain improvements facilitate superior ride quality.

With a solidly sporty yet refined stance, a lower roofline, sleeker sides and minimalist styling; the CX-5’s exterior exudes strength and maturity. Its bold character is accentuated with the offering of new additional colours from Mazda’s next-generation premium colour palette; Soul Red Crystal and Machine Gray Metallic. Soul Red Crystal colour has amplified depth and an almost gem-like translucency while Machine Gray Metallic colour achieves both high-contrast shadows and a high-density finish to give a realistic metallic feel.

South Africa’s powertrain lineup comprises of three engine options that offer powerful, linear driving performance and outstanding environmental performance; SKYACTIV-G 2.0L and 2.5L petrol as well as the SKYACTIV-D 2.2L diesel engines. All 2.0L engine derivatives are available in both the manual and automatic transmissions with the Dynamic derivative now offering an automatic option. The 2.5L petrol and 2.2L diesel engine derivatives are available with automatic transmission.

By providing the enjoyment of driving to everybody who drives or rides in one of its vehicles, Mazda aims to enrich people’s lives and become a brand with which customers feel an emotional connection.
