Comfort, style and safety are at the forefront of the changes to the Mazda CX-5.

The Mazda CX-5 range has received an array of upgrades including updated damper, bush and stabiliser tuning to improve the ride, a new straight shift transmission lever and a choice of new colours, making the updated SUV an improvement on its predecessor.

In addition, the mid-grade Maxx Sport gets the latest Safety Pack option which includes Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) and a rear view mirror with an auto dimming function.

Blind Spot Monitoring warns the driver of any unseen vehicles beside or behind the car using a warning beeper and a LED icon which appears on the relevant side mirror, while SCBS helps prevent, or lesson, low-speed impacts between 4 and 30 kilometres per hour. SCBS accesses the possibility of a collision and, if high, applies the brakes, assisting the driver.

While the range gets two new colour choices, Blue Reflex Mica and Deep Crystal Blue Mica, the CX-5 Maxx Sport also gets a revised silver finish to its 17-inch alloy wheels - the same smart finish is now also available on the 19-inch alloys on the higher grade Grand Touring and Akera.

Front seat passengers will enjoy a more comfortable ride in Grand Touring and Akera models, with a new ‘memory function’ on the driver’s seat maintaining the preferred position for the regular driver. For the front-seat passenger, new six-way power adjustment makes changing seat position effortless.

The Akera also receives SCBS, making the top-of-the-line Mazda CX-5 the first Mazda regardless of model, grade or specification to offer this safety technology as standard equipment.

Pricing for Maxx and Maxx Sport models remain unchanged, with the Safety Pack available for $1,490* on the Maxx Sport. There is a increase of $400* and $800* for Grand Touring and Akera respectively.
