Mazdas all-new CX-5 has shot to the top of the medium SUV sales charts in Australia and this sales success is being mirrored across the globe. In its first two months of sale, Australian Mazda dealers sold over 2,800 CX-5s making it Australias best-selling medium SUV over the March and April period.
And with May now entering its final selling week, Mazda Australia has confirmed that CX-5 demand remains high. Were continuing to see strong showroom traffic across the whole Mazda range and even with it being a brand new nameplate customers are reacting extremely well to CX-5. As a result, customers are driving home CX-5s in numbers never before seen for a Mazda SUV, said Mazda Australia national sales manager Vinesh Bhindi.
The story in Japan is equally impressive with CX-5 orders totalling approximately 16,000 since its mid-February launch. With the annual CX-5 sales target for Japan initially set at 12,000, the level of interest so far has well and truly surpassed expectations. Of the 16,000 CX-5s already sold in Japan, diesel models are being snapped up like never before. Japanese CX-5 preference currently leans strongly in the favour of diesel with it making up about 80 percent of the model mix.
Russia leads the way for CX-5 sales in Europe with over 7,500 orders since its February launch. Germany follows closely behind although it should be noted that orders in excess of 5,000 have been achieved in just over one month. European media review has also been favourable with several leading motoring publications vouching for the quality of CX-5 and placing it ahead of key SUV competitors.
North America was always going to be a key market for CX-5 and sales so far have proved this to be correct. In less than three months on sale, more than 10,000 CX-5s have been sold across USA and Canada. The CX-5 is shaping up to be another worldwide phenomenon for Mazda.
