The Mazda CX-5 has always been one of Mazda's popular vehicles in the industry since being released five years ago. Equipped with the SKYACTIVE-TECHNOLOGY features, the Mazda CX-5 is the vehicle you would want to keep you and your family safe. Now in 2017, the Mazda CX-5 has been fully redesigned, giving Mazda's motto "Soul of Motion" a new outlook on life.

Exterior

Imagine being on the beach, breathing in the fresh air. That sensation is what the newly redesigned Mazda CX-5 brings- new air, new spirit. The whole design of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 has one thing in mind- the connection between driver and their vehicle. Revived from beginning to end, the Mazda CX-5 starts off with a chrome grille frame which spills into the headlights, giving off a bold, athletic look. Character lines run from the front to throughout the sides and all the way to the rear end, promoting sophiscation. Not to mention how quiet the cabin is- how is it possible they made it even more quiet? Unwelcom road noise is diminshed to a hush by improving narrowing gaps, installing sound-insulating glass and extensive seal insulation to prevent exterior wind noise. In addition to the comfortable ride, the Mazda CX-5 comes with sleeker highlights, slimmer taillights and LED fog lights for those foggy days driving on the road. Oh, and when it rains, the Mazda CX-5 has you covered. Installed are rain sensing window wipers that turn on, so you can concentrate on driving.

Also, be amazed by a new paint color. The Mazda CX-5 will come in a new Soul Red Crystal, giving the Mazda CX-5 more depth and richness to the exterior. To create the Soul Red Crystal color, designers used a three layer color process to provide the Mazda CX-5 more light manipulation, creating a sense of motion even when the vehicle is standing still. Amazing huh?

Interior

You thought the exterior would sound promising; the interior is just as redefined. From front to back with newly designed material, the cabin shows off strength and toughness with an attractive metallic finish. Choose from a variety of upholstry- from Black Cloth, Silk Beige Leatherette, Parchment Leather- the perfect leather seating for you and your passengers- who can also enjoy heated seating in the back seats. Are you one of the drivers who enjoys music in their car? Enjoy the 2017 Mazda CX-5 with the all new Bose 10 Speaker System. The speakers are arranged to help minimize door rattling and provide depth of sound. This 10 speaker system features "AudioPilot® 2" noise technology plus "Centerpoint® 2" surround technology, producing perfect surround sound performance. Also included is a screen display connected on the dashboard with MAZDA CONNECT, allowing you to be entertained with music, communicate with voice commands, and navigate with the system's maps. You are in control.

Safety Dynamics

We all want to remain safe while driving on the road and Mazda wants to make sure that paying attention is our main focus. This is where i-ACTIVSENSE® safey innovations comes in to assist drivers. The i-ACTIVSENSE® uses advance technologies such as milliwave radars and cameras that alert you about hazards before they occur. Included is the i-ACTIV AWD® system, which monitors the temperature and weather conditions (for braking patterns) to engage AWD if needed to make sure the wheels don't slip.

The Mazda CX-5 has included new technology that will work together with the i-ACTIV AWD® system and i-ACTIVSENSE® - the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. While driving on the road, the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control aids your steering by improving load control. It predicts your intended motions and amplifies them to allow more precise cornering. Take for instance, a baseball player. While up to bat, the batter has to refine his form so when making contact with the baseball, it will fly out of the ball park. Mazda CX-5 SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control will refine its form to help you focus on one element- driving in control.
