Pricing confirmed for UK spec all-new Mazda CX-5
Mazda's all-new CX-5 will go on sale in the UK on June 30, with a starting price of £23,695.
The SUV range accounts for roughly 25% of Mazda’s global sales volume with more than 32,000 current-generation CX-5s having been sold in the UK.
Both Mazda’s Skyactiv-MT six-speed manual and Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmissions feature in the 10-model range, as does the latest generation of Mazda’s i-Activ all-wheel drive (AWD) system.
Powered by a familiar range of Skyactiv engines, the 2.0-litre 165PS Skyactiv-G petrol engine is available in SE-L Nav and Sport Nav trim and is offered exclusively with front-wheel drive and Mazda’s six-speed Skyactiv-MT manual gearbox.
Making up the bulk of the range, the popular 2.2-litre 150PS Skyactiv-D diesel is available with front-wheel drive and AWD transmissions, plus comes with a choice of Skyactiv-MT or Skyactiv-Drive gearbox.
Sitting at the top of the range, the 2.2-litre 175PS Skyativ-D comes exclusively in Sport Nav trim and is equipped with Mazda’s i-Activ AWD, and like the lower output diesel, it can be matched to either automatic or manual transmission.
Across both outputs the Skyactiv-D diesel engines have been enhanced with the introduction of Mazda’s noise reducing Natural Sound Smoother technology, which entails the fitting of a dynamic damper within the pin securing the piston to the connecting rod to reduce start-up and idle reverberation.
In addition Transient Control sharpens throttle responsiveness by more precise control of engine torque with optimised turbo pressure and finer adjustment of fuel injection.
All models feature a standard equipment tally that includes LED headlights, auto power-folding door mirrors, dual-zone climate control, DAB radio and a seven-inch colour touch-screen display with Mazda’s integrated navigation.
Sport Nav cars add to this with highlights including a reversing camera, eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and keyless entry, plus heated front seats and steering wheel.
Offered in a Mazda for the first time, Sport Nav models also feature a power lift tailgate, plus a new head-up display (HUD) that projects directly onto the windscreen and features traffic sign recognition.
