All About the Redesigned Mazda CX-5

Mazda CX-5 Waukegan

The redesigned Mazda CX-5 has certainly captured our attention here at Rosen Mazda. While we weren’t there in person at the recent Los Angeles auto show to see the all new CX-5 with our very own eyes, we’ve certainly heard the reports and viewed the pictures. We are happy to report that we like what we have seen and heard.

The CX-5 has a lot in common with another favorite of ours, the CX-9, but this crossover is definitely in a league of its own. Mazda chose to unveil the new design on a Hollywood movie lot utilizing a flair for the dramatic that we certainly appreciate. The CX-5 is every bit a star too, just as it has been since its launch in 2012. At that time, the CX-5 provided a platform for Mazda’s Skyactiv drivetrain system as well as their Kodo design. Both features have become more commonplace now, but at the time they were new concepts and they continue to capture the interest and imaginations of Mazda fans four years later.

Since the introduction of the CX-5, this pint-sized sports utility vehicle has been sold in well over 100 countries around that world. These sales make up for about one fourth of the Japanese automaker’s global sales. We’d say that makes the CX-5 quite a workhorse. It has earned the company money of course, but it has also garnered a fair bit of positive press and awards from the industry, including Car of the Year award in Japan for 2012-2013. That was just one of the nearly 100 awards piled on this crossover.

Options for powertrains in the CX-5 include the Skyactive-G 2.0 liter and the 2.5 liter options. There’s also a turbocharged version, the Skyactive D with its 2.2 liter diesel engine. This option will incorporate noise cancellation technology to keep the engine noise down to a minimum. A quieter ride is good and lower emissions are even better with 20 percent better fuel efficiency than the diesel engine Mazda previously used in its vehicles.
