The all-new Mazda CX-5 has recently made its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show. Since its initial introduction in 2012, the CX-5 has become one of Mazda’s bestselling models which currently accounts for a quarter of Mazda’s global unit sales. With the all-new Mazda CX-5 not expected to arrive until at least the middle of 2017, details such as engine size have not been confirmed, but Auto Express writes very positively about noticeable refinements and initial improvements made to design, the interior and infotainment system.
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is ‘a clear evolution of the car it replaces rather than a radical overhaul’. The slimmer headlines and larger grille in addition to ‘re-profiled taillights and tweaked tailgate at the back’ make for a more distinctive looking crossover. These subtle alterations are said to ‘hide front and rear tracks widened by 10mm’ and while ‘the wheelbase remains the same, it’s a longer car by 10mm and sits 15mm lower’.
Additional space within the car allows for a remarkably quiet and finely crafted cabin. There are also additional extras available such as ‘rear seat heaters and rear cabin climate control vents’ to name a few.
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 now comes equipped with the ‘latest evolution of Mazda’s infotainment system’. Other changes include a ‘higher resolution TFT display in the instrument panel, and the option of a head-up display that can project navigation instructions on to the inside of the windscreen’.
In addition, Mazda has managed to ‘reduce the low-frequency road noises to make conversations about 10 percent clearer at 60mph’, which illustrates the success of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 in their aim of being able to share the pleasure of driving with everyone on board.
