SKYACTIV®TECHNOLOGY is at the center of the Mazda driving experience, consisting of the body and chassis. The framework incorporates ultra-high tensile-strength steel in critical areas to help make it lighter, yet stronger — ultimately making for a more enjoyable drive.
Small details can make the biggest impact. This kind of thinking inspired Mazda engineers to spend years developing SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control — a subtle technology standard on the CX-5, and designed to help achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive. When cornering, on initial turn-in and throughout, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery and shifting vehicle weight. The only thing the driver will notice is a great drive. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Weather and road conditions can change in an instant. That’s why available i-ACTIV AWD® helps predict when all-wheel drive might be needed, monitoring everything from outside temperature to throttle input and braking patterns. It then preemptively optimizes torque distribution to help curb traction loss. You may never even notice the change. Which is exactly what Mazda intended.
The pursuit of innovation continues with our latest SKYACTIV®-G engine featuring Cylinder Deactivation. This technology shuts down two of the engine’s four cylinders during light load driving conditions, such as maintaining speed on a flat road or traveling downhill. The end result? Improved fuel efficiency. Yes, it’s possible to optimize an already optimized gas powertrain.
We take a unique approach to creating our paint colors. One of our goals for the CX-5 was to design a color that complemented every curve and angle, giving this stylish compact SUV even more depth, richness and luster. Our Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint does just that. Its unique three-layer paint process uses the changing light to create a sense of movement, even at a standstill.
The available Power Rear Liftgate opens and closes at your command with either the available Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry button, or a button located inside the driver’s cabin. Plus, a standard easy-release 40/20/40 split fold-down rear seatback accommodates seating for five, or up to 59.6 cubic feet of cargo space.
A connection from the very first touch — passed from the hands of the craftsmen who created it. This is the philosophy behind Mazda’s human-centric design for crafting the interior of the Mazda CX-5 crossover. Thoughtfully selected textures and finishes. Perfect positioning of door handles and controls. An expansive and intuitive space designed for driving enjoyment and rejuvenation. For both its driver and passengers.
With the available intuitive Active Driving Display, vital information such as vehicle status, current speed, and route guidance is projected onto the windshield. Pertinent data is positioned in your line of sight and allows you to better adjust your focus—ultimately minimizing distractions while driving. Is it possible for something to transport you without moving? It is, when it’s designed for you, the driver.
The MAZDA CONNECT™ advanced infotainment system helps keep you entertained, informed and connected–all while keeping your focus on the road ahead. Easily accessible and visible, MAZDA CONNECT™ lets you navigate a multitude of infotainment functions. Just use the multifunctional Commander control on the center console to navigate the options displayed on your full-color display. It’s impressive technology that keeps you in close touch, no matter how far you travel.
We crafted a superbly quiet cabin, so you hear more of what you want to hear. Mazda engineers incorporated unique sound-deadening materials such as sound-insulating glass and extensive seal insulation — resulting in a significant dulling of unwelcome road noise. Conversations are clearer. Engine noise and vibrations are diminished. So whether you’re enjoying the peace and quiet of driving alone, talking with your passengers or enjoying the ultra-clear sounds emitted from the available Bose® 10-speaker audio sound system with Centerpoint® 2 and AudioPilot® 2, your drive is even more relaxing.
Mazda warrants that new Mazda cars and trucks will be free of defects with normal use and prescribed maintenance for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Ordinary maintenance items or adjustments, parts subject to normal wear and replacement and certain other items are excluded. This transferable "limited warranty" is included on all new Mazda vehicles sold and serviced in the United States.
As you reverse, this system promptly alerts you on the back-up monitor as well as on the side view mirrors, when it detects a vehicle approaching from the side.
When travelling at low speeds, this system detects objects ahead. If an impact is predicted, the system will adjust the brake pads closer to the disc for faster braking, or apply the brakes if you’re unable to.
