Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere of
the all-new Mazda CX-5 compact cross-over SUV at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) from 15th to 25th
September 2011. The CX-5 is the first of a new generation of Mazda products that will adopt the full
range of Mazda’s so called SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and new design theme ‘KODO - Soul of Motion’.
The Mazda CX-5 evolves Mazda’s 'character'. This new model will be progressively introduced to
global markets from early 2012. Developed around the full range of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY — including
all-new petrol and diesel engines, manual and automatic transmissions, body and chassis — the
Mazda CX-5 delivers precise response and a ride matched with environmental and safety performance.
The engine line-up for the European specification CX-5 will include Mazda’s SKYACTIV-G 2.0 petrol
engine and SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine available in 'Standard Power' and 'High Power' versions. Mazda
focused on achieving environmental performance for a compact SUV and targeted CO2 emissions of less
than 120 g/km* for the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 engine model.
The CX-5 is also the first production model to showcase Mazda’s new design theme, ‘KODO – Soul of
Motion’, which was previewed with the Mazda
concept cars. Unique themes of KODO design include a prominent new front view with a bolder family
'face' and dynamic styling that conveys a sense of vitality and agility.
Joining the CX-5 on Mazda’s stand at the Frankfurt show will be the facelifted Mazda 3. It delivers
lower CO2 emissions, more sporty and stable driving dynamics, updated interior and exterior design, and
higher quality levels.
Officially titled the 64th Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA), the Frankfurt Motor Show will
open to the media on 13th-14th September and to the public from 15th-25th September, 2011.
Stay tuned to Next Car for further particulars in due course.
