Mazda has unveiled pricing for the redesigned and redefined Mazda CX-5, on sale now.
Starting at $32,190, Mazda’s best-selling SUV welcomes a new front-end design, and improves comfort and dynamic performance across the line-up, while highly specified grades will be more distinctly defined.
Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi, said the new model will better serve customer demand for self-expression, further expanding the SUV’s appeal.
“Versatility is synonymous with Mazda CX-5, and this update bolsters that quality; more uniquely defined grades grow the potential for customers to find their perfect fit within the range, selecting the vehicle that best suits their style and lifestyle,” said Bhindi.
“It’s a significant update for Mazda CX-5, which remains an Aussie favourite and a mainstay in the Mazda line-up, soon to be joined by the first of Mazda’s new-generation large platform SUVs arriving in 2022 – the Mazda CX-60.
“With vehicle supply returning to pre-pandemic levels, Mazda is well placed to meet customer demand for new Mazda CX-5 and other models.”
The updated Mazda CX-5 applies matured Kodo Design principles, eschewing character lines in favour of reflective body surfaces. Common to all grades is a new signature wing and front grille design, plus headlight and taillight design changes, with each lamp featuring a pair of horizontally spaced, rectangular LED lights that create a sleek, eye-catching expression.
For the top end Mazda CX-5 Akera, a more luxurious exterior is achieved by replacing black plastic cladding with body-coloured cladding, finished with bright silver wheels, and premium Nappa Leather to elevate the interior look and feel.
Black highlights proffer an invitingly sporty look for the second to top-grade GT SP; the gloss black signature wing, grille, mirror caps and wheels are complemented by an all-black interior with red accents.
Mazda CX-5 Touring Active will appeal to adventure-seekers. Best showcased in the new Zircon Sand Metallic body colour, exterior cladding on doors and front and rear bumpers imply an outdoor spirit, enhanced further by a lime green accent on the grille. Inside, the same lime green accents seat upholstery and air-conditioning louvres to carry through a sense of utility and SUV toughness.
Mazda CX-5 will also benefit from new-generation technology; the seats have been redesigned to help provide greater stability, the driver will appreciate smoother acceleration with a more responsive and refreshed transmission, and improvements to the dampening control structure and increased frame rigidity help suppress unpleasant vibrations, reduce road noise, and provide a higher quality of ride comfort.
Further to this, Mazda intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) will debut on Mazda CX-5, enabling the driver to select the most appropriate drive mode to optimise driving capability with one touch of a switch.
The updated Mazda CX-5 is on sale now.
