Mazda have given us a glimpse of the new CX-5, ahead of its official release at the LA Auto Show next month.
The first-generation CX-5 was released in 2012 and within less than 18 months Mazda had produced a million of the vehicles, as demand for the SUV was high worldwide (it hasn’t been as popular in South Africa).
” The inclusion of a new engine option has turned the CX-5 into the car it should have been in the first place,” was one of our comments in our driving impression of the face-lifted version in 2014.
No technical information has been released on the new-gen CX-5, but Mazda has said that has ‘refined all aspects’ of the SUV to deliver ‘new dimensions of driving joy.’
It’s likely that the current 2.0 SKYACTIV-G petrol engine will remain in use, while the 2.2-litre diesel is also expected to remain in two states of tune.
