Mazda CX-5

Updated about 6 years ago
The company’s first-ever compact SUV surprised the world when it arrived in early 2012. Its success even surprised Mazda, which increased annual production rates twice during the CX-5’s first 18 months – first by 25 per cent and then another 20 per cent – to meet the robust global demand. The first model of Mazda’s new-generation, the CX-5 introduced SKYACTIV technology and the KODO – Soul of Motion design to the volume car market. It was immediately a darling of car buyers as well as the media around the world. Prizes and awards started flowing and haven’t stopped since. Hardly surprising considering the CX-5’s combination of class-beating fuel economy, fun-to-drive performance and outstanding safety along with one of the most comfortable and flexible interiors in its segment. Certainly, an uncompromising car that has unequivocally raised the class standards.
