Mazda’s latest CX-5 production starts
Mazda revealed the all-new CX-5 at the Los Angeles Auto Show earlier this month. Now, production of the model has started at the Ujina Plant No. 2 near the company’s global headquarters in Hiroshima.
The first example to roll off the assembly line is painted in Soul Red Crystal, a new color for the SUV. With its latest addition to the crossover range, Mazda says it aims “for a new dimension of driving pleasure for everyone on board, and not just the driver,” prioritizing on “passenger comfort in the quiet and finely crafted cabin.”
Back in 2012, when the first generation CX-5 was launched, it was the first production model of the brand to use the so-called Kodo design language and the Skyactiv technologies. Its successor follows the same recipe, but adds sharper lines and a sexier silhouette to the mix.
