Having made its European debut at last month’s Geneva Motor Show, Mazda has announced UK prices and specifications for the all-new Mazda CX-5.
Building on the extraordinary success of the outgoing CX-5, a car that introduced Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology and KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy, the all-new Mazda CX-5 has been designed to bring a new dimension of driving pleasure to SUV customers.
Launched in 2012, the original Mazda CX-5 changed perceptions in the compact SUV segment with its award-winning combination of style, driving dynamics, and efficiency. Winning acclaim from customers and media alike, global sales of over 1.5 million mean it now accounts for roughly 25 percent of Mazda’s global sales volume with more than 32,000 current-generation CX-5s having been sold in the UK.
Now with enhancements across the board, an all-new interior and a fully-revised body structure the all-new Mazda CX-5 raises the bar even higher, delivering new levels of style, refinement and driving a pleasure. Designed under the concept of ‘Refined Toughness’ the second-generation CX-5 features a powerful evolution of Mazda’s front-end design, while sleeker sides and a lower roofline underscore its solid stance and elegant proportions. Inside, Mazda’s human-centric development ethos delivers an interior that merges meticulous cockpit ergonomics with a sophisticated, high-quality and spacious cabin environment.
A product of Mazda’s ‘Jinba-Ittai’ car-and-driver as one philosophy, the all-new Mazda CX-5 delivers new levels of driver engagement and comfort. With particular attention paid to reducing noise and vibration within the cabin, the all-new CX-5 provides unmistakably premium levels of comfort and refinement, while at the same time improving on the class-leading handling precision and driver involvement of the outgoing car. With 15 percent stiffer torsional body rigidity than the outgoing model, refinements to the steering, suspension, and brakes, plus the introduction of G-Vectoring Control (GVC) the all-new Mazda CX-5 is more comfortable, refined and responsive than ever.
Available in two highly-specified trim levels, the ten model UK range starts at just £23,695. Both Mazda’s SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual and SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic transmissions feature in the range, as does the latest generation of Mazda’s intelligent i-ACTIV all-wheel drive (AWD) system.
