The world premiere of the all-new Mazda CX-5 will occur
this week at the Frankfurt Motor Show (15th-25th September 2011) in Germany.
It is the first new-generation Mazda vehicle to include Mazda’s so-called "SKYACTIV" technologies
and a new design direction called "KODO" (Soul of Motion according to Mazda).
The CX-5 compact cross-over SUV features a full set of all-new SKYACTIV technologies such as
engines, transmissions and a new chassis and body that enhance the Mazda drive experience together
with environmental and safety considerations.
The world premiere of the all-new Mazda CX-5 at Frankfurt begins a new era for the Mazda brand.
The CX-5 will be available with both petrol and diesel engines featuring record-breaking compression
ratios which are coupled to the new SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic or the new SKYACTIV-MT six-speed
These technologies are combined with a new platform featuring lightweight yet rigid body and chassis
structures, aerodynamic efficiency for precise response and a quality, rewarding ride. And these are
matched to outstanding environmental and safety performance. Customers can choose from two- and
Mazda CX-5 engineers focused on achieving exceptional environmental performance for a compact SUV
and the European-spec models have targeted CO2 emissions of less than 120 g/km for the SKYACTIV-D 2.2
diesel model with standard power, front-wheel-drive, manual transmission.
On the inside, CX-5 has generous boot volume and rear legroom – high quality feel, superior
functionality and low noise levels for a most enjoyable ride.
Superior safety performance is realised by offering Rear Vehicle Monitoring (RVM) and all-new
active safety equipment like Smart City Brake Support (SCBS), High-Beam Control (HBC), and Lane
When combined with a fantastic new design language that expresses a strong sense of vitality and
agility, Mazda’s new core model CX-5 promises to set a new standard in the compact SUV segment when
launched in early 2012.
Not all features will be available in all markets as specifications will be 'tuned' to local
requirements (in the traditional manner).
The compact SUV market is expanding in sales and, as such, manufacturers are scrambling with
an expanded model line-up to cater for the increasing need.
Stay tuned to Next Car for Australian specifications, pricing and availability (in due
course). A local release in mid-2012 is anticipated.
