The 2012 Mazda CX-5 arrived officially at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year and now, with it set to arrive in UK showrooms in the spring and order books open, Mazda has revealed details of the CX-5 models on offer in the UK, and their price.
The CX-5 is the first production Mazda to get the new SkyActiv technology in the two engines on offer – a 2.0 litre petrol with 165PS and a 2.2 litre diesel with either 150PS or 175PS – with options of either 2WD or 4WD, manual or automatic gearboxes and four trim levels - SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav.
The entry-level SE-L trim offers a decent spec, with 17″ alloys, Climate, Fogs, Privacy Glass, parking sensors and Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support. Move up to the Sport spec and you’ll get 19″ alloys, Bi-Xenons, Active Lights, Leather, heated front seats, reversing camera and an electric driver’s seat. The SE-l Nav and Sport Nav do what they say on the tin.
Depending on the model you choose, the new CX-5 can offer economy of up to 61.4mpg and emissions as low as 119g/km, and Mazda are keen to point out that despite the frugal nature of the CX-5 it still offers decent driving dynamics.
It looks like the supply of RHD CX-5s for the UK will be limited this year, but Mazda are taking orders now with first deliveries expected in the Spring.
