Mazda Motor Corporation today unveiled the All-New Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV. The fully redesigned model, which refines every element of Mazda’s design and technology to offer new dimensions of driving pleasure, will be launched in Japan in February before being rolled out to global markets.

Andrew Clearwater, Managing Director of Mazda New Zealand says they cannot wait for the All-New CX-5 to be launched in NZ in 2017.

 Mazda CX-5

“The previous Mazda CX-5 has been an outstanding success in New Zealand and we expect the All-New CX-5 to continue the vehicles dominance of the mid-size SUV market in New Zealand.”

The slogan for development of the All-New CX-5 was “an SUV all customers will enjoy,” and Mazda aimed to add a new dimension by offering driving pleasure that everyone on board can enjoy - not just the driver. The model is engineered in line with human sensibilities to deliver responsive performance that conforms to the driver’s expectations. It also prioritizes passenger comfort, with a quiet cabin and pleasant ride feel, and adopts G-Vectoring Control, the first of the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS vehicle motion control technologies.

Designed under the KODO - Soul of Motion design theme, the exterior is both bold and sensual, and the interior has been crafted to give occupants a pleasant feeling. The exterior colour line-up includes the newly developed Soul Red Crystal, which highlights the beauty and quality of Mazda’s KODO designs.

The powertrain line-up comprises the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 and 2.5 petrol, and SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engines. All three options offer powerful, linear driving performance and outstanding environmental performance.

The All-New CX-5 will be on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show, open to the public Nov. 18-27.

Launched in 2012, the CX-5 was the first new-generation model featuring SKYACTIV technology1 and KODO design. It has since grown into a core model that is sold in over 120 countries and accounts for approximately one quarter of Mazda’s global sales volume.2 It has won around 90 awards worldwide3, including 2012 New Zealand Herald Car of the Year, and 2012 NZ AutoCar Car of the Year as well as Japan Car of the Year 2012-2013.

1SKYACTIV is an umbrella term for Mazda's next-generation technologies, including petrol and diesel engines, transmissions, body and chassis, developed to provide both driving pleasure and outstanding environmental and safety performance, based on the company's Sustainable Zoom-Zoom long-term vision for technology development.
