The New 2017 Mazda CX-5 builds on this success story with refinements to every aspect of Mazda’s unique design approach and sophisticated SKYACTIV technologies, creating a stylish, spirited and intelligent vehicle which brings a new dimension of driving pleasure to SUV customers.
2017 Mazda CX-5 Interior. The all-new Mazda CX-5’s entirely human-centred interior design has been conceived with a focus on peerless cockpit ergonomics within an elegant, durable and spacious cabin layout, and painstaking attention to detail in the use of materials and the fit and finish of components.
Both the front and rear seats have been extensively revised to offer occupants better body core support, improved fatigue relief and greater comfort. Making its first appearance on a Mazda, a power-operated tailgate is operated by open/close switches located both on the tailgate itself and within the driver’s switchgear.
A new-generation steering wheel design features a more comfortable grip and a heated rim. The front windscreen in now equipped with a wiper de-icing system. And an automatic door mirror retracting system folds the door mirrors inwards when the doors are locked using the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry system. Three interior colour schemes are available -Black fabric, and Black or Pure White leather. And a newly developed decorative panel within the dashboard conveys both the warmth of wood and the strength of metal.
2017 Mazda CX-5 Exterior. Conceived under the development concept of ‘Refined Toughness’, the all-new Mazda CX-5 elevates the company’s unique KODO-Soul of Motion design philosophy to new levels of sophistication, giving the new Mazda a distinct and dynamic personality designed to appeal to the sensibilities of the mature SUV customer.
Behind a more three-dimensional evolution of the brand’s frontal design, the styling goal for the all-new CX-5 was to create a simple yet bold, mature and elegant form in which character line accents are minimised and the transitions between body surfaces emphasised to create changes in light reflected off the body. To maximise this effect, Mazda has developed the new Soul Red Crystal body colour.
An evolution of the company’s hugely popular Soul Red Premium Metallic paint which raises the brightness level by approximately 20% and increases the depth by some 50%, the new Soul Red Crystal paint finish achieves even more stunning levels of transparency to highlight the beauty and quality of KODO design’s dynamic body shapes.
2017 Mazda CX-5 Engines and Transmission. The all-new Mazda CX-5 is available with a choice of three engines: a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 turbodiesel and SKYACTIV-G 2.0. Both petrol and diesel powerplants meet Euro 6 regulations. They are mated to a choice of upgraded SKYACTIV-MT manual and SKYACTIV DRIVE automatic transmissions, and are available equipped with either front-wheel drive or the latest generation of Mazda’s i-ACTIV AWD all-wheel drive system.
The SKYACTIV-D turbodiesel engine benefits from three outstanding SKYACTIV-D technologies -High-Precision DE Boost Control, a Natural Sound Smoother and Natural Sound Frequency Control to sharpen engine responsiveness, improve quietness and enhance driving quality.
