|Sculptured front design
The taillights, wing-shaped like the headlamps, add a unique touch, particularly at night. Viewed at its full length, the Mazda CX-5 exudes dynamism. The sculptured body sides and bold fender arches (skirting a choice of 17 or 19-inch wheels) accentuate a sense of power. The Mazda CX-5 doesn’t only look good. The angle of the A-pillars gives the driver an outstanding field of view, improving safety as well as driving enjoyment. The slanting C-pillars along with the sharply raked back window, meanwhile, contribute to the SUV’s vibrant appearance.

|SKYACTIV power unit
As a result, the SKYACTIV-G has considerably less internal friction than a standard 2.0-litre petrol power unit. Developing 114 kW (152 hp) of power at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, the SKYACTIV-G petrol power unit delivers more torque, better fuel economy and lower emissions. Mazda pairs the offers a cutting-edge six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission, to enhance the CX-5’s athletic character. An engaging six-speed manual transmission is available as well.
|Comfortable front seats
Head-, shoulder- and legroom are all at or near the top of the class, allowing four adults to easily change their posture and relax in comfort. An upright sitting posture is adopted that minimizes stress and relieves fatigue on long journeys. Passengers in the rear enjoy class-leading legroom (of 997 mm) and top-level knee clearance of 66 mm giving them plenty of room to stretch out. Cushions are shaped to give comfortable support to occupants of almost any size, while side bolsters on the seat cushion and seatback hold the lower and upper body firmly in place during cornering. Needless to say, Mazda CX-5 provides the generous storage capacity demanded of an SUV, so occupants always enjoy free space within easy reach.
