All-new CX-5 sports stunning Soul Red in Geneva
The beautiful new finish enhances the newly sculpted lines more than any other colour in available on the new model, which celebrated its European premier at the show in Geneva. Due to arrive this summer the all-new model is sharper and more refined than its predecessor both outside and in, but the exterior is what stole the show with the impressive new Soul Red Crystal.
Some of the more notable updates include changes to the A-pillars which have been moved 3.5 centimetres back for improved visibility. The interior has been treated to a more driver-oriented space while remaining extremely comfortable and roomy for all passengers.
The new CX-5 will be available with the same fantastic selection of 2 and 2.5 litre SkyActiv engines, including the 165PS FWD and the AWD 160ps power plants. When it comes to the turbo diesel units, the SkyActiv-D engines develop between 150ps and 175ps with both manual and auto variants available. On the handling front, the 15.5% better torsional rigidity and the G-Vectoring Control system will do the talking.
A final nice little touch worth mentioning is the Advanced Smart City Brake Support. A laser sensor acts as the eyes of the system, looking for traffic signs, cars, and pedestrians to ensure that it's not just those on board that're kept safe, but those around you too.
