All-new from the ground up, this crossover SUV incorporates Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology and demonstrates the Japanese brand’s ability to throw out the rule book and start over using its engineering expertise to create a vehicle that revolutionises the car industry.
Lighter, yet stronger than any of its competitors the CX-5 offers a combination of best-in-class economy, a spacious interior, sleek design, optimum safety and a choice of three lively engines, which set it far apart from the average SUV.
Mazda has dramatically re-invented the engine’s make-up, made the bodyshell lighter and stronger using high tensile steel and developed an all-new six-speed manual (based on that in the MX-5 sportscar) and a six-speed automatic gear box. This combination ensures the CX-5 provides reduced CO2 emissions and better fuel economy, while retaining the brand’s legendary fun-to-drive nature. As well as having plenty of standard equipment and a luxurious interior, the space inside is incomparable, the boot cavernous.
“Over the years Mazda has developed vehicles with the style, efficiency, safety and fun-to-drive performance that our customers love,” said Alex Bass, Dealer Principal, Vospers Mazda. “The launch of the CX-5 brings with it an even fresher appeal to Mazda that meets the requirements of today’s modern customer. Our launch event gives Exeter motorists the opportunity to try the car for themselves and experience exactly what it has to offer.”
The 18-strong Mazda CX-5 model range is priced from just £21,395, rising to £28,795 (OTR). It comes with the choice of a 2.0 165ps petrol engine, 2.2 150ps and high-power 175ps diesel engines. Equipment is generous across the model range, including a navigation system featuring TomTom® technology, an advanced safety system with automatic braking to prevent low speed collisions, lane departure warning, blind spot alerts and an automatic main beam function (depending on model).
