MAZDA's all new CX-5 is set to shake up the SUV scene with its cutting edge design, next generation technologies and emphasis on safety features, launching in New Zealand this April.
There has never been an SUV like it. The stunning design sets the CX-5 apart, while all-new SKYACTIV technologies deliver performance and handling with the instincts of a sports car, yet minimizes fuel consumption and emissions.
The CX-5 is the first of Mazda's new-generation vehicles to boast the full suite of SKYACTIV technologies. Engineers redesigned the engine, transmission, chassis to minimize fuel consumption and emissions, yet maximize performance.
To ensure absolute safety while driving, the CX-5 offers unsurpassed safety features from a reversing camera as standard on all models, to advanced features like TomTom satellite navigation, parking sensors, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Monitoring on selected models.
CX-5 is the first production model to feature Mazda's next generation "KODO - Soul of Motion" design theme. Inspired by the beauty and power of nature along with the concept of movement, the CX-5 achieves an outstanding balance between style and performance.
"The CX-5 is the ultimate SUV, in that, just like the cheetah it has been modelled on, it is ahead of competitors in every way. Kiwi drivers will love how well the CX-5 caters to their lifestyle and adventure needs, without faltering on style. The next generation technologies and realisation of KODO design create an utterly stunning SUV," Andrew Clearwater, Managing Director Mazda New Zealand said.
The sophisticated exterior expresses SUV sturdiness and functionality, while boldly projecting an elegant sense of motion - and anticipation of driving enjoyment. Developers pursued a sporty, imposing design delivering the greatest possible balance between form, functionality and performance.
The CX-5's well-planted look begins with the strong presence of the nose and prominent wheel arches. CX-5 designers even managed to achieve outstanding aerodynamics, with a drag coefficient of only 0.33, by pushing the boundaries of conventional thinking regarding compact SUVs.
Inside, Mazda created a driver-oriented cabin with solid yet mature styling that reflects the CX-5's exterior strength and sturdiness. The seats express solid simplicity - they look and feel sporty, deliver superb lateral and vertical grip with better thigh and lumbar support than ever - but without compromising on driver or passenger comfort, even on long trips. In spite of its compact exterior, the CX-5 is remarkably spacious on the inside.
The Mazda all new CX-5 is available at all Niranjans stores in Fiji.
