The increasingly popular Mazda CX-5 is to receive a couple of new models after customer feed-back pointed to some improvements for the very well-made crossover vehicle which leaves most of its competitors in the shade.
There are two new Mazda CX-5 ‘SE-L Lux’ models which have a sunroof, power adjusted driver’s seat, leather trim and heated front seats.
They also have quite impressive fuel economy and those running the Mazda CX-5 can enjoy outstanding emissions from 119g/km and fuel economy of up to 61.4mpg.
That’s because both models come with Mazda’s innovative fuel-saving SKYACTIV technology and are based on the 2.2-litre diesel 150ps 2WD SE-L, with manual transmission and feature the addition of a powered tilt-and-slide glass sunroof, full leather trim in Black or Stone, a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats with three-stage temperature settings.
Essentially the new Mazda CX-5 models have extras costing more than £2,500 but which only have a £1,200 premium.
Mazda has always managed to churn out reliable and decent cars but very few have ever caught the public’s imagination but that might change with the CX-5 (and the new Mazda6) which has attracted rave reviews from the motoring press.
In addition, the Mazda CX-5 is also picking up some notable awards, including the SUV category in the 2013 Women’s World Car of the Year Awards and prizes from Auto Express, WhatCar?, Total 4×4 and Fleet World magazines.
The Mazda CX-5 is versatile and well thought out – it’s a great car that delivers on so many levels.
Available now, the new models cost from £24,495 for the Mazda CX-5 SE-L Lux and £25,195 for the Mazda CX-5 SE-L Lux Nav.
