CKD Mazda CX-5 Facelift Previewed in Malaysia, Price to be Unveiled Soon
The CX-5 has been, and continues to be, one of Mazda’s most outstanding success stories. This Crossover remains one of Mazda’s best-selling models, still setting the standard in many markets and across many levels, earning admiration and also winning hearts everywhere it goes.
The Mazda CX-5 has earned quite an unprecedented collection of awards all over the world, including in some of the toughest, most matured and discerning markets. Amongst many is the highly prestigious Car of the Year Japan Award for 2012, the Autobytel 2012 Crossover of the Year; the International Federation of Automotive Journalists 2012 SUV of the Year of the Americas; and most recently the ASEAN Car of The Year – Best Compact SUV Award for 2015.
The Mazda CX-5 was also the 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick, a fitting tribute to the convention-defying package of Active and Passive Safety features that are part-and-parcel of the best-selling Mazda Crossover, thanks to the Mazda SKYACTIV Technology.
A very special achievement for the Mazda CX-5 is the JD Power Appeal Award. This came from a survey on how much owners like their vehicle after 90 days of ownership.
On top of these, the Mazda CX-5 has also garnered numerous accolades and recognition from environmental consciousness and vanguard publications, which is quite a rare feat in the motoring industry. Top among these has to be the Earth, Wind & Power Media’s award of the Most Earth-Friendly Truck of the Year.
Riding on these amazing successes, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is now presented with a fresh new look. Exterior features include a new front grille and signature wing design. These combine with new LED front headlamps and Daytime Running Light to create a bold and elegant expression that leaves a distinct impression of the evolution of the brand. Amongst other interior features, there is the MZD CONNECT Infotainment with a large 7-inch full colour touchscreen display and multi-function commander control.
In addition to looking even better, the best-selling Mazda CX-5 comes loaded for even greater versatility with predictive i-ACTIV all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, a punchy 155-horsepower 2.0-litre or 185- horsepower 2.5-litre SKYACTIV-G engine. Available in 4 color choices: Artic White, Blue Reflex, Meteor Grey and Aluminium Metallic. Selling price will be revealed soon.
